Chapter 2 - The Little Bully

Summary: There was a boy named Hari. He was small but strong. He loved to tease all the boys and girls who went to school with him. What he loved to do most was to pinch. Another trick he played was pricking people with a pin. All the children, therefore, hated Hari. They never liked his company.

One day the class went for a picnic to the seaside. Although the children were very excited, they did not go near Hari. They played among themselves leaving Hari alone on a sandy corner near a rocky pool.

It was lunchtime. Hari took out his lunch box and began to eat. Just then he saw a monster crab who came close to him and pinched him. Hari cried loudly. Soon many large lobsters and sandy-colored shrimps and prawns came out and pricked him one by one. Hari was helpless. His lunch rolled into the pool. He somehow saved his life. Now, he realized his mistake and took a pledge not to pinch or prick the children anymore because it pains a lot.
