Dennischya Goshti (The Adventures of Dennis)

I like to lie on my stomach, slung over Daddy’s knee, with my arms and legs dangling like wash on a line. I like to play chess, checkers and dominoes, but only if I win. If don’t, I don’t.
I like to listen to a beetle scratching inside a box. And on Sundays I like to crawl into bed beside Daddy so we can talk about our dog. As soon as we move to a bigger apartment we’re going to buy a dog and train it, and feed it, and it’ll be a very intelligent and bouncy dog, and it’ll steal lump sugar, and I’ll wipe up all its puddles, and it’ll follow me around like a devoted dog.

Chimni (The Sparrows)

The sparrows are ready to go out foraging for food. There is mama sparrow, uncle sparrow and aunt sparrow along with the four young sparrows who have just learnt to fly. It’s a big day today as they will be foraging outside their nest for the first time today and the entire party is going to a nearby field.
