The little girl was walking on the seashore along with her mother when she saw a beautiful shell. It was light pink in colour and glistened in the water. As the sun rays fell on it, seemed to beckon her. She rushed over and picked it up in excitement. “Look, Mama, how beautiful this shell is!” Her Mama smiled and took the shell from her. She blew off the sand that was stuck on it, and wiped it vigorously with the end of her sari. It glistened even more.
