Once upon a time there was a
small hill. A path went up the hill.
It went through thick and lovely
woods of pine and fir trees. People
often walked on it to a holy place.
One day when the sun shone
high in the sky, many people were
seen climbing up the hill. They
were climbing slowly and
carefully.
A girl also climbed the hill
with them. Her name was Meena.
Meena was twelve years old. She
carried a small boy on her back.
He was four years old. His
hair was curly. His eyes were
black and his face was as
fresh as the morning dew.
As the sunshine danced
through the trees, Meena
climbed the hill slowly and
steadily. Meena was happy.
The boy was also happy.
A man in the group
looked at Meena. He felt
sorry for her. He asked her,
“My child, why are you
carrying a boy on your back?
Don't you feel his load?”
Meena looked at him in wonder. She could not understand
