Chhutki : This is just wonderful. Flying
so high, almost touching the clouds.
Baadshah : I'm glad you
Chhutki : And from up here,
you can see everything for miles sround.
Baadshah : Yes , we
Chhutki : ( Suddenly
pointing to the left .) Oh look, down on the ground, to the left...
Baadshah :( Looking
carefully.) It looks like a lot of people ... they seem to be standing in a sort of ...
line... a very long queue.
Chhutki : Can we go down o
little lower for a closer look, Pia?
Pia : Certainly, Chhutki!
( They go lower down so that they can now see the people clearly.)
Chhutki : They are
holding buckets, bottles, vessels... standing near a tap...!
Baadshah : There seems to
be no other supply in the area, so they are all trying to fill water here.
Chhutki : Oh , no! Could we
not go down and see if we can help?
( Suddenly, there is a lot of shouting
and screaming from the crowd. They seem to be having a fierce quarrel.)
Pia : I
don't think that's a good idea right now..
Baadshah : Yes, it appears
that a nasty fight has broken out among them . Let's go up higher ... and away from here.
Chhutki : A fight... it's
so bad to see people fighting....
Baadshah : .....over water.
( They fly higher and away from the
noise . Soon they are over a huge and dry deaert-like area.)
Chhutki : Look, everything
down here seems so dry and lifeless
Baadshah :Yes, nothing
seems to grow here anymore ... no crops..not even grass... and there doesn't seem to be
any sign of water either.
Chhutki : And look,
there's a poor little calf crying of thirst near that dry water hole.
Baadshah : Pia, let's go
down and check the place. We'll land somewhere behind the bush, so no one can see us.
