Once upon a time there lived ants and a grasshopper in a grassy meadow. All-day long the ants would work hard collecting grains of wheat from the farmer's field.  

Every morning as soon as it was light enough to see by the ants used to carry the grains on their head and put the grains of wheat carefully in their large Erland and then hurry back to the field for more.

On the other hand, the grasshopper was lazy and used to rest all day in the shade singing songs to himself. The grasshopper enjoys his life to the fullest and hardly cared what comes next.

One day when the ants were carrying the grains one of the ants fell down due to the heavyweight of the grain, he was tired and hurt instead of helping the ant grasshopper looked at him and laughed.

THE ANT ASKED: Mr. grasshopper will you please help me with lifting this grain till my nest, I will be really thankful to you. 

But the grasshopper ignored him.

THE GRASSHOPPER SAID: why do you work so hard dear ant, come to have rest and enjoy the life with me. summer is here and the days are long and bright why waste the sunshine. 

THE ANT REPLIED: I am helping to lay up food for the winter and recommend you do the same.

The grasshopper laughs and said why bother about winter we've got plenty of food at present and there's still plenty of time to prepare for winter.

But the ant knew what he was doing and went on his way and continued his work. 

As the grasshopper hopped away across the meadow singing and dancing merrily this continued for the rest of the days to come instead of working and preparing for winter the grasshopper preferred to dance sing and play.

He did not realize that the wonderful summer days will not last forever and soon cold and rainy days will be near. 

Finally, the Winter arrives. 

It became freezing cold and snow began to fall the grasshoppers shivered through the cold breeze. He felt hungry and could not find
anything to eat and he was sure that if he would not eat he will soon die.

The grasshopper began to feel weak because of hunger and soon realized that the ant was right and he should have stored food for winter. 

But it is very late now, the grasshopper didn't feel like singing anymore rather he was cold and hungry. He had nowhere to shelter
from the snow and nothing to eat, everything was covered in snow, there was no food to eat.

The grasshopper saw the ants were enjoying the food collected in the summer and thought of asking for some food from them.

The grasshopper went to the ants and begged for some food to eat.

THE ANTS SAID: haven't you stored anything away for the winter what were you doing all the summer. 

The ant who once asked the grasshopper to help him looked at him and said all summer long I worked hard while you made fun of me and sang and danced you should have thought of winter.

THE AND SAID: There is no warmth or food for you here and shut the door in the grasshoppers face the grasshopper could do nothing but to cry.

Moral of the ant and the grasshopper story: Your future is created by what you do in the present.
