This simple bilingual book introduces beginner readers to a less-known part of India – Sikkim. Rising mountains, Buddhist monastery, Sardarji truck-driver… so typical, and painted with a keen and affectionate eye.
A farmer is working in the field. It is a very hot day and the farmer quickly gets tired. “It’s all your fault!” he shouts at the sun. The sun feels hurt and goes away. It does not return and there is darkness all around. Finally, it takes a rooster’s trick to bring the sun back into the sky. This engaging story is based on a folktale of the Ao tribe in Nagaland.
