There was a small kingdom next to a river. The King was very kind and benevolent. The King had a daughter named Kavya. The princess was very beautiful. The princess would go out to play and roam near the river bank with her friends. One day while playing hide and seek she went to the other side of the river. She was amazed to see the trees, fruits and flowers over there and thought that this place is very beautiful, but I never came here before. She was so captivated by the beauty of the place that she went far off.
Kavya was tired. She was thirsty and hungry. So many fruits? I’ll eat some fruits first and then I’ll walk. She quickly plucked some fruits and kept some fruits aside for her friends. She sat down under the tree and started eating the fruits. Wow! These fruits are very sweet. As she ate the fruits she dozed off and fell asleep under the tree.
When she woke up she found that she had become very small in size. She was so small that the fruits and flowers around her appeared to be huge. How did this happen? How did I fall asleep? Why have I become so small in size? She started crying. Kavya’s friends were tired of searching her. They went to the palace and shared everything with the King and the Queen. Kavya went far away while playing hide and seek. We searched her everywhere but we didn’t find Kavya, Your Majesty. The King and the Queen were disturbed. The Queen started crying. Where is my daughter? Go and search all the places near the river and bring the princess back. Go. When they went to look for Kavya in the forest she noticed them but her voice didn’t reach them.
She was so small that the guards couldn’t see her. Princess Kavya, where are you? Princess Kavya! Listen! Look here. Look down. I’m here. What shall I do now? Stop! She was so small in size that the guards couldn’t see her and they went back to the palace. Kavya kept shouting and running after them. Finally she got tired and sat down under a tree and started crying. She noticed a hole near the tree. It was like a huge cave for her. Why don’t I go inside and check? I may get help. But there may be danger inside. If there’s an animal inside I may die. But, what shall I do? I must be brave and do something. Let me go inside and check.
As she went inside she heard some voices. When she went inside she saw people of small size who were like her sitting inside. Who are you? We live in the adjoining villages. But, who are you? We lost our way in the forest. The sorceress of theforest made us her targets. We’re hiding here for the past few days so that nobody kills us. I’m princess Kavya. We won’t tolerate this quietly. We must do something. We’ve become so small in size. What can we do now? We’ll be tired of running and yet we won’t be able to escape.
There must be some way of defeating the sorceress. Yes, there’s a way but it’s not only difficult but impossible too. There’s a broken mirror in the garden of her house. If we can join the mirror and the sorceress sees her reflection in it then her magic will lose its power and we’ll get back to our originals form and the sorceress will also die. Okay, all of us will try to do this. It’ll take us several days to reach her house. No, We can seek the help of the birds of this forest. Yes, a parrot comes here daily. We can take his help. When the parrot came there the next day they asked him to help them.
