This is the Panchatantra Tales for toddlers. A hawk family lived on a tall tree. Father Hawk and Mother Hawk would search for food and bring to the nest. Then they would share it with the baby hawk.
While Mother Hawk would search for food in forests and farms, Father Hawk had a habit of stealing food that was offered to gods in the temple.
Every day, he would fly to various temples and steal food items that were meant for the gods.
One day, Father Hawk fell sick. As he lay dying, his younger son said to him, “Father, I am praying to God to spare your life.”
Father Hawk replied, “Dear son, which god will take pity on me? I’ve been stealing the very offerings that were meant for the gods. I
I repent my actions, but it is too late. Feeling sorry on the deathbed is not enough after leading a life full of sins.”
