One day at dawn break Titu was going in search of water with his parents and family friends. Titu’s mother kept an eagle’s eye on him, since he was a playful baby. But Titu always tried to escape from his mother’s stern look. He saw his mother tête-à-tête something with his dad, Titu cleverly moved away. After a while his mother looked around for Titu and found him hiding behind thick bushes pounding stones. She grunted and thumped him with her tusks.

Titu got pleasure with his mother’s protective concern and affection. He cuddled in his mom’s tender trunk.

     The site where they went the last time had insufficient water to quench thirst and meet the need of water for all. So Titus’s father directed to proceed towards the northern part of the valley to look for water. So they started towards north.  They kept moving forward till midday and stopped near a lagoon to beat the heat and rest. All the elephants showered and decided to stay a while before going any further. His mother was taking a nap too so Titu took the chance and moved away quietly.   

He enjoyed wandering alone as a cloud. Titu stepped in the lagoon. He played and splashed water with his trunk. The twittering and hopping of birds and croaking of frogs were an enjoyment for Titu.

After some time he got bored, so he got out of the lagoon and followed wild rabbits, squirrels and lizards.

The twilight swiftly wrapping the whole scenario in darkness worried Titu. He didn’t know that he had come very far from the place where they stopped for rest near the lagoon. Titu got scared. He looked around for his mother.

He bawled for his mom desperately. Mama —–moa —-o mama but there was no mama to be seen anywhere around.

Titu longed for his mother’s warm thumps. He missed his mother’s intimacy. He wailed but in vain.

Grief-stricken Titu tried to think of the next move when all of a sudden he heard a loud hissing roar and tremors under his feet. He was stunned to see a long black anaconda with broad stripes winding in the woods. He got scared to death. His had heard that anacondas can gulp down baby elephants as a morsel! The sounds started to get closer, threatening Titu like hell. As it grew closer Titu saw a huge black fast moving monster. It whistled and smoked too. Titu closed his eyes with full belief that he will be swallowed in a while. The noise lessened. Titu slowly opened his eyes to find himself in the anaconda’s stomach. But to his surprise he was standing at the same spot. He opened his eyes in relief and looked down to see his feet but shuddered with fear again for the anaconda lay still in front of him. He could never think of anything but to run. He wildly ran towards the forest to hide him before the anaconda awoke and swallowed him. While running he heard a familiar voice from the distance. He stopped to look back. He could easily recognize her voice among thousands.

Aunt Fox was calling him. Aunt Fox used to visit Titus’s family once a fortnight or so. Aunt Fox was a friend of all animals. She went to every nook and corner and shared the rumors and news with all. The animals enjoyed her wittiness and information and waited anxiously for her visits. The baby animals especially waited for aunt fox to hear her stories about foreign animals and lands.

When she saw Titu running madly she called and asked him the reason for running and also inquired about his family. Her voice seemed soothing like rain in a desert. Titu shed tears and something choked in his throat so he could not utter a sound. He wanted to hide in aunt fox’s bosom but she yelled and asked him to keep away as he was so huge. His embrace could crush aunt fox’s ribs. Though he was a baby, he was still an elephant and it was difficult to take him in lap or embrace him.

She knew Titu was a naughty and carefree child of her friend Pomi the elephant. Titu only wept but failed to tell her the story of his thrilling run away.

 

 

Once upon a time the falcons saw a magnificent cage a little further from Bittu, the baby elephant’s cage.  They had never seen such a worth seeing enclosure before anywhere not even in the zoo.

It was like a Chinese pagoda.  The bright red canopy was upturned and it was laden with flowery liana on three sides giving it a picturesque scene.

Inside the enclosure, bamboo shoots and long elephant grass scattered all over.  There was some one inside —– “who could it be?

A baby bear—– a black and white baby bear? How could that be?” said a monkey. A falcon was surprised to see a back and white bear.  Guessing their wonder the animal inside said: “friends, I am not a bear. I am a Panda. I belong toSouthern China.

Southern Chinais covered with thick forests. I do resemble   bears but I am herbivorous. I eat leaves and   bamboo shoots.”

A monkey said: “you seem to be living alone here. Don’t you have other pandas or your family members here?”

The panda heaving a sigh said: “My mother died of a strange disease when I was very young. I would have died too if some humans did not take care of me.  They brought me here. Since then they have treated me like their own baby. They feed me, care for me and   love me.

They have not only saved my life but have also saved our generation. I am very thankful to them.”

The monkeys and falcons speechless listened to panda’s story.

After some time a falcon asked panda: “Panda dear would you please explain the how humans saved   your species?”

“Ugh! It’s a long story but I will tell you in short.  For    past many decades new pandas’ reproduction bunged rather the species lessened gradually. Years of study and research made it possible for the humans to find the cause   of our thinning.  Now a rewarding    number of pandas are being raised.   Other countries are also working hard to build up our breed.  This is all because of humans’ love and care for animals and especially for us, the pandas.”

“Hey! How come you are all out of your cages?”  Said Panda astonished.

The falcons and monkeys had no answer to panda’s    query so they moved quietly from there.
