Scene 2
Outside

 

Baadshah : Now just stop worrying. We are going for a little ride ... and I'm sure you'll enjoy it very much... it's a ride which you've never even heard of before... But first,

Just shut your eyes and count ten in all
Soon we'll both be very small

( Chhutki shuts her eyes and counts till ten. When she opens them she is startled to find they both have become smaller thgan mice. She then hears a loud flapping sound which scares her and makes her run and hide behind Baadshah for safety. )

Chhutki : Baadshah, Baadshah! What is that loud flapping sound ?

Baadshah : ( Chuckling ) No, no, Chhutki ! Don't be afraid ... take a look , it's someone I want you to meet... a very good friend - Pia, the pigeon.

Pia : Hello, Baadshah ! Good to see you again ! Hello Chhutki! Don't be afraid . Come, hop on to my back , I'll take you wherever you wish to go.

(Baadshah and Chhutki climb on to a naerby rock and then on to Pia's back where they sit, clinging tightly to her feathers .)

Ready? Now. where do we go to?

Baadshah : Let's go as high as you can take us.

Pia: Very well, hold on tight.
