Children and the little goat

“Un dono ko bhi chani le jate hain humare saath. Woh gaay, bhains aur bakaree ko khana khilate hain aur khelte hai unke saath. (We take our children to the livestock shelter in the valley below. They both feed and play with the goats, buffaloes and goats over there”) said the father.

Kanika and Rohan stepped outside their house. Their little black goat was back from the fields running and jumping outside their house. Kanika swiftly captured it, and both the siblings showered it with gentle hugs and kisses. This is how the trio often played. They took turns feeding their friend while their grandfather watched over them.
