1) Describe the struggles underwent by the young seagull to overcome its fear
 of flying?
Liam O’ Flaherty is an Irish novelist and short-story writer. One of the best stories of him is “His First Flight”. This story is a parable about overcoming fears in life.

The young seagull:
The young seagull was one among the four off springs. He was not courageous. He was alone on the ledge. His parents, brothers and sister had flown away. He was afraid of flying. The little bird felt that his wings would not support him.

The reaction of parents:
The young bird’s parents, brothers and sister not only scolded, but also encouraged him. But he didnot have enough courage to fly. He was left alone for many hours. He could find nothing except the dried pieces of egg shells. He felt that he was starving to death.

The young one’s first flight:
The young bird was hungry. He begged his mother to bring a piece of fish. His parents wanted to teach him to fly. The mother seagull picked up a piece of fish. She flew across him. The sight of food maddened him. He cried and screamed. His wings opened up automatically. He flapped his wings. He realized that he was flying.”

Encouragement of the family:
The young bird’s family was very happy. His mother divided him. His father flew over him. His brothers and sister were flying around him. His family joined him in his first flight. They praised him for his effort. He was offered scraps of dog fish.

This story speaks about the reluctance and courage of the bird.

“Confidence is the key to success”
