Reveries

A mishmash of spirituality, human relationship, adult and children's literature, news analyses and anti-road-rage tirades

Two Monkeys

Necessity is the mother of invention.

Last year my little daughter (who was three and a half then) had to participate in a story-telling competition at school. The challenge was that the story had to be both very, very short and unique at the same time. In spite of my several searches on the Internet, I couldn’t zero in on any such story.

Finally, I decided to pen it down myself. I also got it illustrated by sourcing freely-available images from the Internet and layouting them with some help from my colleague Sudhir Sharma.

What came out is in front of you. Do give it a read and please do not forget to leave a comment!

Two Monkeys

 

Once there were two monkeys. One was Chinu and the other was Duggu.

Chinu used to eat only chocolates and fries.

Duggu loved to eat dal, roti and fruits.

When Duggu grew up, he became a famous doctor.

Chinu too grew up but fell ill. He went to Duggu and said, “Dr Duggu, will you cure me?”

 

And Duggu offered him treatments. Chinu finally got well.

Chinu left eating chocolates and fries. He promised to eat dal, roti and fruits instead.

 

Chinu became healthier and worked hard to be a famous farmer.
