Aren't we chubby, aren't we cute?Aren't we lovely, as sweet as fruit?Give us a bear hug, give us a kissRegret not late ...


Aren't we chubby, aren't we cute?
Aren't we lovely, as sweet as fruit?
Give us a bear hug, give us a kiss
Regret not later for giving it a miss.

Don't go by these sweet words-for all little asura kids are naughty and troublesome and always up to something! Little will you know when you land in a muddy puddle or your long hair gets chopped off into a bob. They will prod, pull and tug you till you yell-just like the gods in the heavens, especially Vishnu and Shiva who are simply fed up!

Indulge in some very, extremely, most funny naughty tales of asura twins Kundakka and Mandakka, who hate going to school; clumsy Bhasma and pet pig Nakura, who create trouble in the village; brothers Atapi and Vatapi, who like to eat ninety-six cartfuls of fruits as dessert; the great Bana who claps with his thousand hands and so many more!
