Soon, however a boy named Jeeva came to the stall and he asked for paper but didn't want to learn how to make a bird. I gave him paper and let him do his own thing and when I looked back at him I was surprised to see that he had made a beautiful rose from the paper. I then asked him if he could teach me and I was pleasantly surprised to see that he was a patient teacher as he taught me the art. By then all the other kids wanted to try their hands at the rose- making so I began teaching them that while the others continued with the bird making. Jeeva, meanwhile made various other cutouts and figures using origami and after speaking to him I realize d that his father was involved in making paper crafts as his profession. Jeeva helps his father and that is how he knew how to make such wonderful things.
Later as the kids began to clear out it was great to see most of them carrying colorful birds or roses in their hands as we ended the day with the usual chicken dance!
