The big fluffy white cloud was basking in the sun. It felt proud that the sun’s ray’s couldn’t harm it, cannot make it smaller. It was too big even for the mighty Sun. The Big Cloud saw a Small Cloud scurrying by.
The Small Cloud stopped and asked, ‘What do you want?’
The Big Cloud said, ‘I want you to go to the sun and tell him hello’
The Small Cloud protested. It said, ‘The last time I did it, I melted. It took a long time to get back to my shape. I will not do it again.’
The Small Cloud grew black in the face.
The Big Cloud threw another challenge at the Small Cloud. The Big Cloud asked the Small Cloud, ‘Can you be this?’ and transformed itself into a house, shaped like a hut. After a couple of minutes it transformed into a tortoise. The Big Cloud gloated over it’s capability to change.
The Small Cloud challenged the Big Cloud,‘Oh! you can do only a house and a tortoise. That is so old-fashioned. I have seen my parents and grand parents do that. I will show you what we can do.’
The small clouds became an aeroplane and made a noise, ‘Whooooooooosh.’
The combined strength of the small clouds’ defeated the Big Cloud. It was injured. The small clouds’ moved away, with their heads held high. The Big Cloud cried in pain. The tears of the Big Cloud, fell down as rain and moistened the parched earth.
