Tuntuni and naughty cat
Upendrakishore Roy Chowdhury
There are eggplant trees at the back of the householder's house. The tuntuni bird has made its home by sewing the leaves of that eggplant tree with its beak.
There are three small cubs inside the house. Very small puppies, they can't fly, their eyes can't match. Simply yawning.
The cat of the household is very naughty. He simply said, "I'll eat Tuntuni's baby." One day he came to the bottom of the eggplant and said, "What are you doing La Tuntuni?"
Tuntuni leaned her head against the branch of the eggplant and said, "Prostrate, Empress!"
The cat was very happy and left.
Thus she comes every day, every day Tuntuni bows to her and says Maharani, and she leaves happy.
Now Tuntuni's puppies have grown up, they have beautiful wings. They no longer close their eyes. Seeing that, Tuntuni said to them, "Boy, can you fly?"
The kids said, "Yes mom, I can."
Tuntuni said, "But let's see if I can go and sit on the branches of that palm tree."
The cubs flew away and perched on the branches of a palm tree. Seeing that, Tuntuni laughed and said, "Now let's see the naughty cat!"
After a while the cat came and said, "What are you doing La Tuntuni?"
Then Tuntuni raised his legs and kicked him and said, "Get away, Lakshmichhari is not a cat!" He flew away. The naughty cat gritted its teeth and jumped into the tree, could not catch Tuntuni, nor could it eat the cub. He returned home exhausted after eating the sting of the empty eggplant.
