When Sun was out people did things, but when Moon appeared all they did was sleep! Moon isn’t happy – she too wants to be noticed. So starting from where the three seas meet at the tip of India, she goes to the mountains at the very top, trying to ruffle up waters to announce her presence. But nothing works. She then follows the advice of her ocean friends and works at what she is good at. She shines and shimmers, waxes and wanes… and soon people are singing songs and writing poems about her!
