Text and Images from Amma’s Birthday

“It’s your mother’s birthday tomorrow,” her father said. “Oh!” Nikini was very upset.
“How could I forget my Amma’s birthday?
She would never forget mine.
So I should give her a wonderful gift,”

“Firefly, it’s my Amma’s birthday tomorrow. She loves me very much. She makes me very happy on my birthdays. So I want to make her happy on her birthday. I want to give her the ‘greatest’ gift of all. But I can’t think of anything as great as my Amma,” said Nikini, sadly.
