A little boy requests permission from the family members to – eat the ladoos, play in the garden, wear the new clothes and open an intriguingly closed box, but, to his dismay, every single request is turned down.

Disappointed he falls asleep that night pondering over the unreasonable attitude of the adult world.

When he awakens the next morning – the situation has changed! He can do all of that because it’s his Birthday!

Kids will love this story as they will be able to associate with the emotions expressed.
