Once upon a time a king was once gifted two beautiful falcons. The two falcons belonged to a different climate. The king ordered the head of the bird trainer to provide all the facilities to the falcons. The head trainer took the birds and provided everything to help the birds adapt to their climate.
One day the king wanted to see the falcons fly, and was astonished when one of the falcons flew to great heights and at a very high speeds. The king enquired about the other falcon. The bird trainer stated with regret that the other falcon did not move and just sat on the branch. He had tried everything he could do and still he failed to make this bird move. The king consoled him and told the trainer that he would bring in an old man who knew about falcons.
When he arrived, he was taken to the sanctuary and told that he would be visited the next day to see if there was any change.
The next day, the king was very surprised to see the other falcon fly like the first one to great heights in rapid speed. When the king asked what he had done to make the bird fly in a day. The old man simply replied, 'I just cut down the branch of the tree where the falcon used to sit.'
