______________________________________________________________________________
Tooi, the parakeet becomes a part of Cheeku's family. But one day, he flies away. Will Cheeku's friend ever return?

Cheeku liked to watch
the birds that lived
around his house.
There were sparrows,
crows, pigeons,
doves, mynahs
and parakeets.
They spent every night
in the trees
of a park
near Cheeku’s house.
One day,
a parakeet
suddenly fell from the sky
into the courtyard.
Baa picked it up
and placed it
in her knitting basket.
“Maybe it is learning to fly,”
she said.
“It must be in a state of shock.
When it feels stronger,
it will fly away.”
Cheeku,
who was eating an apple,
shared a small slice
with the bird,
and they became fast friends.
Cheeku named the parakeet
Tooi.
Before leaving,
Baa told Cheeku:
“Tooi cannot be left alone
at night.
I’ll find a cage for it.”
Once Cheeku was alone with Tooi,
he offered his hand in friendship
to the bird.
Tooi promptly climbed
to his shoulder.
Cheeku was happy,
and when Baa returned,
she was pleased
to see Cheeku’s new friend.
During the day,
Tooi stayed with Baa and Cheeku,
but spent the night in a cage.
Tooi lived in the house
as a free bird.
His favourite place
was the kitchen,
where he ate
fresh fruits and vegetables.
Once,
Cheeku offered him
a taste of his chapatti,
and he loved it.
From then on,
Tooi always ate
a few pieces of chapatti
for lunch
at the dining table
with the family.
One day,
Cheeku and Baa
couldn’t find Tooi.
Cheeku was in tears.
Baa consoled him saying:
“I think
Tooi has finally flown away.
Anyway,
I didn’t like locking him up
in a cage.
Maybe he has flown away
with the other park birds.”
Cheeku seemed to understand
but nevertheless
missed Tooi.
The very next evening,
Tooi returned
with a family of parakeets
to spend the night
in the park nearby.
Tooi flew into Cheeku’s house
to sit on his shoulder.
Cheeku and Baa smiled,
happy
that Tooi had not forgotten them.
From then on,
every morning,
Tooi would pay Cheeku a visit.
He would sit on his shoulder,
eat a piece of chapatti
and fly away.
Indeed,
as Baa wisely remarked to Cheeku:
“Birds and human beings
can be friends,
if only they can learn
to live together
peacefully
in the same world.”
