Text and Images from One by Two – Fun story about sharing equal parts
Jiya 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.
“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!”
Rani was Jiya’s neighbour. She
was only five, and she adored
Jiya wondered how Ammi had
known their secret.
“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
