Sringeri Srinivas had very long hair. He wanted it cut on Annual Haircut Day. Everyone was busy. You will never guess who helped him that day.
Annual Haircut Day
Written by Noni
It was the Annual Haircut Day
for Sringeri Srinivas.
Sringeri Srinivas left home as usual
to go to the local barber.
But the barber said,
"Today, I have no time
to cut such long hair!"
Feeling sad,
Sringeri Srinivas went back home
to ask his wife for help.
But his wife said,
"Today, I have no time
to cut such long hair!"
Feeling a little angry,
Sringeri Srinivas went to his friend,
the tailor.
But the tailor said,
"Today, I have no time
to cut such long hair!"
Now a little worried,
Sringeri Srinivas
went to one more friend,
the carpenter.
But the carpenter said,
"Today, I have no time
to cut such long hair!"
Poor Sringeri Srinivas.
It seemed no one would cut his hair
on this Annual Haircut Day.
In tears, he walked off by himself
past the village forest.
He sat near a cave and cried loudly.
"The day is nearly over.
How can I keep my promise
to cut my hair?
Oh God, help me!"
The tiger sleeping peacefully
inside the cave
was very disturbed by all the noise.
He came out, roaring,
waving his giant paws
at Sringeri Srinivas.
Poor Sringeri Srinivas was so scared,
so scared, so scared that…
…all the hair fell off his head!
Sringeri Srinivas ran
all the way back to the village.
The tiger went back to sleep.
Now, Sringeri Srinivas
will not need a haircut
for a very long time.
