Merlin’s class teacher arranged a trip to Ooty. It was quite exciting. They saw monkeys racing along the tracks. A monkey tried to snatch a banana from a girl. She let out a scream. Muthu sniggered at her. All of a sudden the train stopped with a thud. Every one got off the train. They saw a baby elephant sitting on the track. Its mother was standing nearby and it was trumpeting. Muthu showed a bunch of bananas. The baby elephant moved forward to eat it. Now Muthu moved backwards. The baby elephant moved forward and soon it was away from the track. When the track was clear everyone got into the train and the train moved on. Muthu's presence of mind helped them to continue their journey.
