The Blue Umbrella tells the story of the little girl, Binya, and her beautiful blue umbrella.

Binya exchanged the claw pendant of her lucky leopard for a blue umbrella. She had been smitten from the day she had seen it. Binya took the umbrella with her wherever she went.

A jealous old shopkeeper named Ram Bharosa, decided to own the blue umbrella by any means. The umbrella had faded to pale blue and develops patches in many places, but still many in the village were envious of Binya’s valued possession.

The Blue Umbrella can be read by both children and adults. This story conveys a subtle moral lesson.
