Once upon a time there was a huge banyan tree
There lived many creatures on it.
Mr. monkey, Mr. owl, Mrs. Sparrow, queen grasshopper, ms. Squirrel & Mr. snake all lived united.
Mr. Monkey was expert in jumping from branch to branch.
Mr. Owl was very wise.
Mrs. Sparrow was very kind.
Queen Grasshopper could make all kinds of sounds.
Ms. Squirrel kept a large collection of acorns.
& Mr. Snake was a master in coiling himself around anything.
The wise owl’s advice
One fresh morning every body in the banyan tree were relaxing with the scent spread around, when they heard a loud thud. They turned their heads to see what had happened when they saw a fallen tree with two men beside it with a big saw, they heard them say “we will rest for a while and then we will cut that banyan tree. It looks strong and sturdy” The animals went to Mr. owl he was sleeping soundly & it took a while for them to wake him. When he woke up they narrated the whole story to him. Mr. owl listened patiently.
He thought of a plan and told it to others. So while the men were resting Mr. snake coiled around them and started to hiss Mr. monkey started shaking the branches of the trees so all the leaves fell on them. Mrs. sparrow pecked all over their body so their skin swelled up. Ms. Squirrel pelt acorns at them. Then queen grasshopper made her voice different & said “I am the goddess of the trees if you ever touch them beware.” The woodcutters made a run for it and never showed their face ever again. As for the banyan tree’s residents they protected their home & lived happily ever after.
