    CHEEKY CHIKY
    Cheeky Chiky was very upset today Though Dusshera and Diwali were nearing, but the children were not at all showing enthusiasm.

Cute Kate remarked, "The elders never think about pollution by vehicles and are banning our 'phuljharis'. Don't they know that even their vehicles cause pollution?" In the meantime, Aunt Polly arrived there carrying a big bag over her shoulder. Aunt Polly took out a beautiful packet from her bag. To the children's excitement, it contained some crackers.
