It's a rainy summer day in India and a little boy and his grandfather, his Dadaji, make the most of the Monsoon weather. Together, they race paper boats, watch the birds dancing in the rain and play in the banyan tree. Dadaji tells the boy that these are the same things he would do when Monsoon came during his childhood. This story is a beautiful tale of family traditions and connections and the universal recognition of the special relationship between grandchild and grandparent.
