Lunch-time at Ammama’s place is always a picnic for Mihir. He loves sharing his grandmother’s special paruppu saadum with his feathered friends and a furry squirrel, who live in a gigantic mango tree close by.

On his next visit, though, the tree is cut down. His bird and animal-friends don’t visit him any more.

Mihir is determined to give them a new home but how long is he willing to wait for it?
