Text and Images from One by Two – Fun story about sharing equal parts

One by TwoJiya was excited. It was Big Mela day!
“Hurry up, Ammi!” Jiya tugged impatiently at Ammi’s dupatta.
Ammi smiled. She knew the real reason for Jiya’s excitement.

One by Two“The Big Mela is open ALL day, Jiya,” she said. “It isn’t going anywhere.”
“But Rani is! To a wedding! In the afternoon…” Jiya stopped suddenly.
Ammi roared with laughter. “I knew you two rascals had planned this together!”

One by Two

Rani was Jiya’s neighbour. She
was only five, and she adored
eight-year-old Jiya.

Jiya wondered how Ammi had
known their secret.



One by Two

“Ammi magic!” winked Ammi.

She didn’t tell Jiya that she and
Rani’s Amma had made their
own plans for the Mela. Ammis
have secrets too
