This is tale about a young boy who used to live in a tiny village. His hut was in the midst of paddy fields. The sun rays would brighten up the paddy field into golden grains. At dawn they swayed and danced with the sweet breeze coming through the nearby garden of violet lavender and to the chirping of the sparrows with the songs of cuckoo. At the far meadow, a girl could be seen running towards a meander to fetch a pale of water. As she bent down to drown the bucket, her pink velvet dress swiped in the dry mud. She put her tiny palms over her forehead to screen her face from the beam of sunrays bouncing from the waves of water. The whistling breeze made the water ripple through her feet. She bowed down a couple of times and now the water is full till the brim. Her gown would at times run down her toes as she pulled it up lightly to let her run up the meadows.
