(This story narrates the daring experiences of the Busy Bee team comprising Sahana, Rahini, Yesha, Simra, Shon, Parth, Vivaan, using their special superpowers to defeat dangerous monsters.)
It was mid-March. The Busy Bee team, except Sahana and Rahini who were in Chennai attending a meeting, was watching the news on TV about a dangerous virus outbreak in Wuhan, China, called Coronavirus, which had now spread to Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai among other places.
Suddenly, they heard a loud noise outside.
Parth: Look, many people are sneezing, coughing, catching a cold, having body ache and fever.
Yesha (looking at her special Google watch): Yes, looks like they have got infected.
Before she could finish, the virus affected all of them except Shon
Luckily, Sahana and Rahini, returned because their meeting got cancelled since everyone there had got affected!
The Coronavirus was blue, round, spiky and very yucky.
Monster: Come, let me make you all ill because you humans are unhygienic and careless. You need to be taught a lesson!
Sahana threw hand sanitizer on the monster, but it didn’t work. The monster got angry and rushed towards the trio.
Sahana: Rahini, hurry, throw a bucket of soap water on it.
The monster’s spikes were nearly touching Rahini. She ran with the bucket but tripped on a stone and fell, the bucket flying in the air and falling on the monster’s head!
Suddenly the monster started melting and evaporated! The Busy Bees had won again! They all started rejoicing but the rest of the Busy Bees however, had to stay in the hospital for 14 days. Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) thanked the Busy Bee team for doing a splendid job.

I love to write stories and have a blog where I do that. Playing the keyboard, learning Western and Hindustani classical music, performing Bharatanatyam and spending time with my family and friends is what I love doing. Oh yes, I also like making slime!
Childhood is a world of stories and dreams. Children start by listening to stories. Then they start reading stories and comics. Characters and plots come alive fuelled by imagination. And with the slightest of nudge kids start writing their own stories……..often surprising you with their capabilities!
