Yamunajic and the Poacher
Writer: Reyaansh Palepu

On the morning of 12th March 2022, all the animals in the forest heard the cries of a baby elephant. Yammunatati Shakuntala had given birth to a cute, chubby, and smart elephant son.

He had pink tusks, a pink tail, and a turquoise blue body: he was a very unique elephant!

His father, Yammuneshwar Majvar, named him Yammunajic Majvar.

Yammunajic Majvar was small, but fit and strong. One day, on 7th April, he was eating his breakfast, a banana, when a poacher entered the forest. Birds flew out of trees, leopards ran in fear, and bulls smashed the earth while running from the poacher.

The poacher saw Yammunajic. “What a unique elephant!” he said. “I will sell those pink tusks and become rich!” he exclaimed and picked up his gun. The little elephant saw this and ran as fast he could. “Hey, stop!” the poacher shouted as he chased him.

Yammunajic hid behind a bush and started thinking of a plan. ‘How do I escape this poacher?’ he thought. Suddenly, he had an idea. Yammunajic quickly slipped past the poacher and gathered his friends from the jungle. They included: Chesan the eagle king; Muban, the gorilla king, and his other elephant friends.

“Please, help me!” Yammunajic pleaded. “The poacher wants to catch me,” he said.

“Don’t worry, my friend, we will help you,” Muban said, placing his hand on the elephant’s head.

“Yes! We all will fight the poacher,” Chesan and all the other elephants said.

The animals went to fight the poacher but he took out his gun.  When they saw this, the animals got scared and started running away. “No! Come back!” Yammunajic said.

“But… he has a gun!” an elephant said.

“We are more powerful than his gun,” Yammunajic said. “We can defeat him!” he said.

Chesan flew to Yammunajic’s side. “He is right! Let us show the poacher how brave we are!” he said to the other animals. Chesan flew to the poacher and grabbed his gun. Then, with his strong claws, the eagle destroyed it!

“What is happening?” the poacher exclaimed as the ground started shaking. Muban was punching the ground and the elephants had started trumpeting. The poacher got very scared.

“I am sorry! I am sorry!” He said and ran away from the forest. All the animals rejoiced. They had frightened the greedy poacher and were now free from him!
