•“But I didn’t hear a baby cry,” replied Kalu.
•“I know. I saw a strange light when he was born, and instead of crying he smiled at me. I think he is going to be someone special!” explained the nurse.

•“Thank you, and thank God.”
•In the small town of Talwandi lived a man called Mheta Kalu and his wife Tripta.

comfortable and well looked after.
People may bring gifts to the book
such as new sheets, romallas or
pillows as a way of thanking God for good fortune or luck
in their lives.
