I stumbled over this scene. There were three girls and a single boy sitting over the partially thatched roof. "Move over, your feet's on the string." Tajal nudged Shanu, and fiercely pulled the red thread under his paws. Shanu's paws were no match for Tajal's talons.
Shanu stared shyly as his fingers would not move dexterously as Tajal's. Saleema and Almina just laughed. They noticed me and Bindiya. "good morning Sir" greeted one. "good morning, ma'am", cried the rest, knowing the lady was neglected.
