Story Title: Yaanai kutty and Mooshak

Mellow golden streaks formed beautiful patterns on the kitchen floor. It was still the wee hours. Most of the Junglepuram residents were still huddled under their sheets. But not Mrs. Trumpeetha, or Amma to her beloved son Yaanai Kutty. She believed in waking up with the sun and making the most of the day.


A tangy, spicy aroma wafted throughout the house. Amma was busy stirring the contents lest they stick in the pot. She continued stirring while reciting her morning hymns at the same time.


‘Amma!’ Little Kutty came thumping into the kitchen.


‘Amma, I am scared!’ he trumpeted while blowing tears through his nostrils.

Do you know why Yaanai Kutty is scared? Who is Mooshak and what role does he play in the story?

Read the story to know more about Yaanai Kutty and Mooshak, two adorable children who are battling their own demons and how the power of friendship helps them sail through tough times.

Loved the way you bright the similarity of the elephant mom behaving like a human mom to her son. Mom is a mom and this was the cutest touch to the kutti yannai story. 💞
