Once upon a time, there was a school called VAIS in Bangalore. One day, it was Ganesha's birthday. Everybody wanted to celebrate it in the school. Some kids made Ganesha's idol out of clay. Some kids brought sweets. After that, the party was about to begin.
Suddenly, a girl named Radhika screamed, "Friends! We can't start the puja yet!". Everybody looked at her. "Why?" they asked. "We need a mouse for Ganesha to ride on" she said. Everybody started looking for a mouse. Some looked under chairs and some looked in the lunch hall. Then they gave up because they got tired.
"Let's go look in the computer room", said Radhika. "Why?" asked a boy named Rohan. "You will see why" replied Radhika. The children went to the computer room. Radhika asked the computer teacher for a Computer Mouse. The teacher said "Yes". The girl plucked a mouse from one of the computers. Then the children said "Thank you" and left.
Next Radhika said "we need a magic potion". Then the children went to the Arts room. "Ma'am" they told the Arts teacher, "we need a magic potion". The teacher slowly put some rainbow paint in a bottle. Then she put some syrup liquid in it. Then she got a spoon and mixed it and gave it to Radhika. She poured it on the mouse. It turned into a Soft toy mouse! Then they started the puja. The principal called Radhika on to the stage and gave her a medal for helping with the puja.
Problem: There were no mice for the Ganesha puja.
Solution: They used the Computer Mouse.
Moral: We should not give up. We should think differently.
