A Son-in-law of Old Moles

     Two moles, who were an old couple, lived in a small country. They had a lovely, young daughter. The daughter grew up and was at a marriageable age. The old couple seriously worried about a husband for their daughter. They wanted a son-in-law who was the strongest man in the world. Finally, Mr. Mole decided to look for a son-in-law and went traveling. The sunshine was hot as he walked down the road. A few hours later, he suddenly stopped and thought about the sun.
“Sun is the strongest in the world. We see him everywhere. He is strong, powerful, and a hot man. He is a man who I’ve found.”
So he went to meet the sun.
He asked him,
“Sun, would you like to get married to my daughter? You are the strongest man in the world.”

The sun thought about it and said,
“Sorry, I can’t marry your daughter because cloud is stronger than me. If a cloud stands in front of me, I don’t push the cloud away from me, and I can’t shine in the world.”

After the mole heard this, he went to the cloud and asked him,
“Cloud would you like to get married to my daughter?” And he explained the situation.

The cloud said,
“Wind is stronger than me, if he blows, I’m blown away by the wind.”
The mole went and saw the wind and then asked him the same question.

The wind said,
“Embankment is stronger than me, he doesn’t move when I blow.”

The mole went to meet the embankment this time, and asked him.
“Embankment would you like to get married to my daughter?”

The embankment said,
“I fear a young mole. He often gnaws into a wall. So I guess a mole is stronger than me.”

So the old mole went to look for a young mole. The young mole was a man who was living in his home town. The old mole talked about his travels story with his wife. Finally, they decided to get the young mole who was the best choice for their son-in-law. The moral is “if you need some help, you don’t look for someone far away. He is close by you.”
