This is a quirky tale sure to delight, and provide surprising insights.
The story follows the strange, amusing journey of Tugli, a man who lives quite contentedly inside of metal box alongside a street in modern-day India. He's plagued by the generosity of an old lady who works at the restaurant down the street, who brings him bags of pungent pickles.
To his surprise, the one time he stashes the pickles atop his box (to prevent them from smelling up his tiny abode), they vanish. But things take a turn for the worse when the old lady stops bringing the goods...and the reason for the vanishing gifts - a disgruntled monkey - expresses his extreme displeasure.
Without giving too much away, this sends Tugli (whose patience is saintlike!) on a journey across India to find a new source of these specifically spiced pickles. And what he discovers will warm one's heart and teach some valuable lessons as to what's important in life.
'Monkey' perfectly captures the feel of a fable, and is suitable for all ages.
