Mr. Time set is a busy man in the world. His job is to see that every thing happens on time. He tells the sun when to rise, and when to set-day and night.
He tells the snow when to fall in winter. He makes the leaves fall in autumn. He makes the followers grow in spring and he sets all clocks city.
The big clocks in the city strike loudly at 5 O’ clock in the morning- bang bang…*
The people in the city felt lazy to get up early.
Once they prayed to god to remove Mr. Time set from his job. God did so.
What happened then?
The clocks did not work for a whole day, a whole week, a whole moth, a whole year. The birds did not wake and sing. The sun did not rise till noon.
Every day was in bed till 12 o’ clock. The days of the week got mixed up.
Children played on Mondays and Tuesdays and they went school on Sundays. Children started crying for food at odd times.
People then played to God to bring back Mr. Time set. God did so. The clocks began to work.
The birds began to sing at 5 O’ clock in the morning.
The days came in order-Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
The months came in order-January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November and December.
Everything kept in order, Best of all; the birthdays came on the right days.
All the children of the city were happy.
