A pomegranate flower and a bulbul bird became friends. The young flower was so much beautiful and delicate that the bird fell in love for him without out any notice. One day the bird thought:

"I am a bird, and a bird's nature is eating buds and flowers.. nature can never be changed.. My presence is injurious to my friend. On someday, I may lose my wits and would certainly eat my sweethart up !".

He dediced to secure the flower by offing his company and keeping himself away. The bird had made up his last decision.

After making up his mind, he said to the flower:
"I am leaving you. Because I fear that on someday... on seeing your beautiful red petals,... being obliged by my nature, i might lose control... and eat you up!"

The flower was much hurt by this decision of separation. He uttered a question in a deep painful sorrow:
"Why are you leaving me.. Am I not beautiful like a Pomegranate flower!!?"
