Bhim caught about ten to twenty quails daily. The king if the quails was worried. Many of his subjects were being capture. He hit upon a plan. He gathered all the quails around him one day.
“You must learn to stand together.” He said. “Unity is strength. As soon as that man throws his net over you, using all your strength, you must fly off with the net. Descent to the ground near the banyan tree. There our friends mill set you free”.
“What a good idea!” said the quails.

The next day Bhim found the quails quarreling. One of them said, “We are able to escape because l am strong enough to lift the net.” Another bird said, ‘I am the strongest. I can lift the net myself”. Soon all the quails joined in the quarrel.
Just then Bhim threw his net over the group of birds. “Now let us see what you can do!” cried one. “Can you lift the net without my help?” said another. “Try and lift it”. They went on quarreling and did not try to fly away together. Soon Bhim drew in his net and took the birds home.
“Look!” he said, showing the quails to his wife. “Didn’t I tell you that they wouldn’t stand together much longer? The quails are a quarrelsome tribe. I will catch plenty of them every day”.

Why is It Important to Choose the Accredited School?
Most of teenagers need to go to school and there are a lot of schools over there. Nowadays, schools grow to offer plenty of choice; private and state ones. However it is a hard choice since there are many factors which need to be considered before making the selection. Some will be influenced by friends; because some friend got to certain school than we go to there too. Some prefer to choose certain school because of the closer distance. In fact, the primary decisive matter for selecting school is whether the school has been accredited or not.
Why is important to choose an accredited school? Well, accredited schools have an edge over the unaccredited schools. This label of Accredited School has an impact in employment opportunities. As result, if there are two or more students with similar qualifications, the student who comes from the accredited school will have an edge over the other candidate. Student from an accredited school has more open door than student with an accredited one.
Many students select certain school depending more on short term factors like friend influence and short distance from home. It is not bad since commuting actually needs much cost. Choosing school which is closer to home will save time, energy and money. However if that school is not accredited, the time and money spent along studying seems to be waste in the long term because it could become a limiting factor in gaining future opportunities.
Accredited school is not the only factor which will drive student’s success. Personality and characterization are very important too. However a student with good personality who comes from an accredited school is better than the others.
