The Magic Brush in Hindi

My grandpa loves me a lot. I canít sleep until Iíve heard a story from him. The story I love the most, Iím writing here. This story is about a magic brush, and I like painting as well:

In a village there lived a boy called Birju. His parents were very poor. Birju loved painting but because of the low income, his parents couldnít offer all the things he wanted. He used to go to school and in his spare time he has to take the cows for grazing. When ever he went to graze the cows he used to look at the beautiful landscape and thought if he had a brush, he would have painted the beautiful scenery. He prayed to god to make his wish come true. One day when he was coming home from grazing the cow he noticed that something was on the ground it was a brush and some paint. When he picked them up. He found a letter under it. In the letter it said that this brush has magical powers and if you draw any thing with it, on completion it will turn real.

After coming back to his home, he painted a pigeon. He was surprised when he found that it flew away. So he started to help everyone in his village with his magic brush. This information reached to the king.

Hearing about the magic brush the king invited Birju. When the king noticed that the brush has magical powers he felt greedy and demanded to give the brush." "No Iím sorry, I canít", replied Birju. The king got angry, so he directed the soldiers to lock Birju in the prison and the king snatched the brush from him. As the king got the brush, he felt greedy and he painted a picture of a golden mountain. But instead of the golden mountain it turned into a mountain of snakes. All the snakes were only after the king. He was so frightened that he threw the brush. Birju ran and picked it up before the soldiers could catch him. Then they put him in a prison. He was not given even any water to drink or food to eat.

One day hiding himself from the guards, he painted some tools to cut the prison rods and a horse. Then he broke the prison and sat on his horse and ran away. He was running ahead of the soldiers and they were behind. Then Birju drew a picture of a river behind him. All the soldiers couldnít follow him because he did not draw a bridge on the river. Then he came back to his village and lived happily ever after with his magic brush and helping his fellow villagers.
