Once there was an old farmer who had three sons. They always quarreled with one another.
One day the old farmer called his sons to bring
some sticks. He tied the sticks in a bundle. He
told them to break the bundle. They tried but could not break the bundle of the sticks. Then he told them to untie the bundle and gave a stick to sons and asked them to break it. Then all of them broke the stick easily. The farmer told them that if they would remain separate and quarrel with one another, the enemy would easily defeat them. But if they remained united like the bundle, they would be stronger and the enemy could not do any harm
to them. At this the three sons learnt a great
lesson and began to live unitedly and happily.

Charfession, Bhola.
Dear Hossain,
How are you? I hope you are fine.
Our friend Rabiul told me over telephone that you become hot-headed sometimes. This leads to quarrel with your classmates and relatives. Sometimes you do the same with the neighbours too. This will create a social problem for you. Some people may be prejudiced to you. Your parents are worried about you. Please give up this habit. You will certainly feel good. As you are my good friend, I advise you. Please don’t mind.
No more today.
Your loving friend,
