The spider did not lose heart, and tried again, but fell down. The spider tried to climb up nine times, but every time it failed. The king thought that the spider would try no more. But he was surprised to see that the spider was ready to attempt for the tenth time. This time it succeeded. It gave the king new hope. He said to himself, “If a small spider can succeed by trying again and again, why should I not? He came out and gathered his forces. He attacked the English and this time he was able to defeat them. Thus he gained freedom for himself and his country.
