Bunu is one step away from losing her first tooth. The only catch: it won’t fall!

Mama tells her to push it with her tongue, but that doesn’t work.
Papa tries to gently shake it, but that doesn’t work either.
Chunnu, her sister, pulls it with a string, but does that work? No.

“It is not ready. Wait for some time and it will fall out on its own,” they all advise her, but Bunu is impatient. šŸ˜£

And then Mama tells her about a Himalayan tradition. What is it? Does it work? Will the stubborn tooth finally fall?
