Aana the elephant doesn't like his looks. But Chena the yam says he's beautiful. How? asks Aana.
The story is about a self-conscious elephant who learns to accept himself with the help of his friend. "Aray mujhe dekho tho!"/"Look at me," the elephant says. "Small eyes, fat body, and long nose" But Chena points out that those are the things that make him beautiful. Renuka Rajiv gives us a great visual of how Aana looks bringing Sowmya's words to life.
