Saving the Rainbow
Once, there existed seven kingdoms on the rainbow, one each representing the colors - red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and pink. They were each blessed with powers, and the subjects there lived happily. But not for long! An evil wizard named “Icy” used her magic and conquered one kingdom after another.
After many years of slavery, a great wizard child was born in these kingdoms. Her name was Smiley – She was very talented. She studied every magic book that existed and took down the spells that had trapped the subjects of the kingdoms. But she was unsuccessful in freeing the leaders of these kingdoms.
Legend said that these leaders were trapped in a spell that wasn’t in any magic book. They were locked in an old fortress hundreds of miles away. Smiley knew she would need help so off she went to the wise “guru”. He was an old and learned man and gave Smiley a fish-shaped key saying “This will help you!”.
Smiley started her odyssey to the old fortress, braving the challenges, and finally, she was in front of the fortress gate. She noticed a fish picture on the door. Instinctively, she kept the fish-shaped key there, and the door opened. Luckily there was no sign of the wizard and she soon found the leaders of her kingdoms. They had grown bitterness amongst them, they constantly blamed each other for their misery.
Smiley wondered how to undo the spell that kept them under bondage. The leaders told Smiley that Icy would visit them periodically and tell them how they were helping her strengthen the spel. Smiley pondered over this and concluded that perhaps the bitterness of the leaders was strengthening Icy’s spell.
She told the leaders to think about the virtues of each of their fellow-mates. As each leader immersed in these positive thoughts, the bonds broke and they were free!
Smiley and the leaders returned to the kingdoms. The leaders made an oath of unity. The kingdoms lived in harmony for generations! Even today, you can see all the rainbow colors together!
