Zebra was fed up of his appearance. He hated the stripes on his body. How he wished he didn't possess the dual skin tone. Why couldn't he be either black or white?

"There is a reason," his father said.

"What reason Dad?" asked Zebra.

"The reason is equality. God gave us stripes so that we can respect every colour, love each other without any discrimination. We are lucky. We are united, unlike humans."

"But Dad, the humans are more advanced."

"Being advanced means living in peace son, not resorting to mindless wars."

Zebra now felt proud of his stripes.
