A grasshopper once saw some ants carrying food grains. He called them to play with him. They refused saying they had a lot of work to do. The grasshopper went away laughing at their foolishness in working so hard. Soon there was the rainy season and the grasshopper found it very hard to get any food. The ants that had slogged away were happily eating their stored food and it was their turn to laugh.
The ants by their hard work, timely stored the treasure, where as grasshopper lost his precious time and opportunity in playing around.
