Robin Hood is a folk hero from England. He is supposed to have lived about 800 years ago, yet his story has been re-told in many ways and is still enjoyed by many. He was a thief who stole from the rich to give money to the poor. He has many adventures where he risks his life to help others or to outwit his chief enemy, the Sheriff of Nottingham.

Listen to the story of one of Robin’s adventures.

Robin Hood

The Sheriff of Nottingham was holding an archery contest. He hoped that Robin Hood would come to compete. Robin was a very good archer and he was very proud of his skill. He always boasted that there was no one better than he. The contest was held on a market day when there would be lots of people in the town. There would be lots of young men willing to show off and the Sheriff’s trained archers would also compete. The prize was a bag of gold.

Robin’s band of men who lived with him in Sherwood Forest were afraid.

“It’s a trick,” they said. “The Sheriff hopes you will come to the competition and then he will arrest you.”

“Only if he recognizes me,” laughed Robin.

Robin disguised himself s an old man and set off for the competition. His men dressed as if they were local peasants and strolled amongst the people as if they were buying things at the market.

When the competition began, everyone gathered at the field to watch. There were three targets and each man had to fire three arrows. The man who shot the three arrows closest to the centre or bull’s eye would be the winner. The Sheriff watched all the men who entered the competition. He was looking for Robin Hood.

The first round was over. Only five men had come close to the target: one old man, two soldiers and two strong young men. After they all had a turn to fire their arrows, only the old man and one of the soldiers were good enough for the final round. The target was moved further away and the two men took turns to fire their arrows. The soldier went first. Both his arrows were in the outer ring of the target and so were the old man’s. The soldier took careful aim and his arrow hit the edge of the bull’s eye. The soldier threw his bow up into the air, he was so excited.

“Not so fast, soldier!” said the old man. He, too, took careful aim and fired. The arrow hit the target dead on centre. There was a hush and then everyone cheered for no one had any love for the Sheriff’s soldiers.

The Sheriff called the winner to the platform where he handed over the bag of gold. “You are a very good archer, old man. I suppose that coward Robin did not appear because he knew he could not beat you!”

“Oh, but he is here!” exclaimed Robin, as he flung off his disguise. He threw the gold bag into the air and all the gold were scattered among the people. As they scrabbled on the ground looking for coins, Robin leapt off the platform and made his escape through the crowds of people who parted to let him through.

“After him!” yelled the Sheriff. But the soldiers tripped over all the people who were crawling around, looking for the gold coins and Robin got safely away. Once again he had tricked the Sheriff of Nottingham.

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
yes that's correct
