Far distant voice of a boy was heard “Arunima! I am coming!”. Shankar was her brother, a nine-year-old boy, affectionate to her sister. They were playing hide and seek in the forest.

Humming noise of a harvester was heard. Their father, Mr. Karthav, was assigned the job to cut the woods. The family had planned to stay for some days in a house between the forest.

'Hide-and-Seek' is a story written and illustrated by me.
