Kesar’s baby sister Kamal will not sleep. Their entire village in the Great Rann of Kutch is kept awake by the infant’s cries and her parents are exhausted. When Kesar and Kamal’s ba comes to visit, her grandmother’s stories give Kesar a wonderful idea. Perhaps what Kesar needs to put the baby to sleep is a little bit of desert magic!
