PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Once upon a time there was a hare who, boasting how he could run faster than anyone else, was forever teasing tortoise for its slowness. Then one day, the angry tortoise answered back: “Who do you think you are? There’s no denying you’re swift, but even you can be beaten!” The hare squealed with laughter.
Song:
Run,run,run I can beat anyone
Run,run,run I can beat anyone
Under the moonlight or under the sun
Run,run,run I can beat anyone

Annoyed by such bragging, the tortoise accepted the challenge. A course was planned, and the next day at dawn they stood at the starting line. The hare yawned sleepily as the meek tortoise trudged slowly off. When the hare saw how painfully slow his rival was, he decided, half asleep on his feet, to have a quick nap. “Take your time!” he said. “I’ll have forty winks and catch up with you in a minute.”
Song:
Run,run,run I can beat anyone
Run,run,run I can beat anyone
Under the moonlight or under the sun
Run,run,run I can beat anyone

The hare woke with a start from a fitful sleep and gazed round, looking for the tortoise. But the creature was only a short distance away, having barely covered a third of the course. Breathing a sigh of relief, the hare decided he might as well have breakfast too, and off he went to munch some cabbages he had noticed in a nearby field. But the heavy meal and the hot sun made his eyelids droop. With a careless glance at the tortoise, now halfway along the course, he decided to have another snooze before flashing past the winning post. He fell fast asleep and was soon snoring happily.
Song:
Run,run,run I can beat anyone
Run,run,run I can beat anyone
Under the moonlight or under the sun
Run,run,run I can beat anyone

At that very point, the hare woke with a jolt. He could see the tortoise a speck in the distance and away he dashed. He leapt and bounded at a great rate, his tongue lolling, and gasping for breath. But the hare’s last leap was just too late. The tortoise had beaten him to the winning post. Poor hare! Tired and in disgrace, he slumped down beside the tortoise who was silently smiling at him.
Slow but steady always wins the race.

Always,always keep a steady pace
Slow and steady always wins the race
