Gajapati Kulapati is the friendly village elephant everyone loves. He is big, but he is also gentle and kind. 🐘

But one day, he gets caught in the rain and develops a nasty cold! 🤧

Small noses catch small colds.
Big noses catch big colds.
Gajapati Kulapati has a big nose and catches a big cold.


Gajapati Kulapati’s sneezes are so powerful that they disrupt the daily activities of the village folk. Now he’s upset, because his friends are afraid of being around him!

Is there something that can be done to ensure that he doesn’t catch a cold again?

With repetitive sounds and words that rhythmically roll off the tongue, this story puts the zing into storytelling.
