Jupiter and the Monkey – Aesop’s Fables

There was once a baby show in the forest, hosted by Jupiter who was to present the cutest baby with a prize. All the mama animals showed up with their little offspring. There were cuddles, snuggles and adoration everywhere. Among the animals was also the mama monkey. She had brought her little chimp to participate in the competition too. 

But seeing the monkey’s baby, all the animals began to snicker and ridicule the little animal for having such little hair, and such a hideous face. The monkey was angry, “My baby may not win the prize, but I know he is the sweetest, the cutest and the loveliest baby of all.” 

There is no doubt that a mother’s love is blind.
