Madhu Magic


Madhu (10) studies at Loka’s school together with her younger brothers Luvkush and Ramu and her little sister Shanti. Madhu and her family live in a small house made of mud and bricks in Manikpur, the village where Loka’s school is located. Her father was until recently a tractor driver at a brick factory. Earlier this year he moved to the UAE to do construction work there. Madhu: When I am not at school I study, help my aunt with cooking, my mother cutting grass and I play Ludo. The grass we cut is fed to our three buffaloes. I am happy in my village, my family and all my friends are here. And my school too, I like studying especially Mathematics.

Magic shows a fairy in the clouds holding on to the hair of a smiling boy. Madhu: One day a fairy flies in the clouds. She has special magic powers and long arms. She reaches them towards the earth where a boy is playing in a field. This boy has been an orphan for the last five years, he has nobody. The fairy catches the boy’s hair and pulls him into the clouds. There, the boy starts studying magic with the fairy. He lives happily ever after.
