And do you quite understand, or shall I ‘splain again?’. Explains how Taffimai delivered a picture message to her mother. Taffy sat down too, with her toes in the water and her chin in her hand, and thought very hard. As soon as Teshumai saw the picture she screamed like anything and flew at the Stranger-man. They were very polite to all their husbands, and said ‘Idiot!’ ever so often. Are you ‘fended?’. Read the next short story; How the Leopard Got His Spots, Or read more short stories for kids in our Children's Library. He had mended his spear and was carefully waving it to and fro. Get started by clicking the "Add" button. ‘Come here, said Taffy. 'Explain! ‘And what are you doing to my nice Stranger-man?’. His name was Tegumai Bopsulai, and that means, ‘Man-who-does-not-put-his-foot-forward-in-a-hurry’; but we, O Best Beloved, will call him Tegumai, for short. And it was so—just so—a little time ago—on the banks of the big Wagai! You go along till you come to two trees (those are trees), and then you go over a hill (that’s a hill), and then you come into a beaver-swamp all full of beavers. Explains how Taffy delivered a picture message to her mother. Most of them prefer to draw pictures and play about with their Daddies—just like Taffy. Explain!' I broke tabu!' Explain!’ said the Head Chief of the Tribe of Tegumai, and he hopped on one foot. The shark’s tooth on my necklace is a magic shark’s tooth, and I was always told that if anybody touched it without my leave they would immediately swell up or burst, but this child doesn’t swell up or burst, and that important Chief, Man-who-attends-strictly-to-his-business, who has not yet taken any notice of me at all, doesn’t seem to be afraid that she will swell up or burst. ‘Small-person-with-no-manners-who-ought-to-be-spanked! Download it once and read it on your Kindle device, PC, phones or tablets. Nobody said anything at all for a longtime, till the Head Chief laughed; then the Stranger-man (who was at least a Tewara) laughed; then Tegumai laughed till he fell down flat on the bank; then all the Tribe laughed more and worse and louder. Can’t a man break his carp-spear without the whole countryside descending on him? She stamps her foot at me and she makes faces. OF all the Tribe of Tegumai Who cut that figure, none remain,-- On Merrow Down the … Well, now I’ll draw the other spear that he wants, the black-handled spear. Balbharati solutions for English Kumarbharati 9th Standard Maharashtra State Board chapter 3 (How the First Letter was Written) include all questions with solution and detail explanation. How the First Letter Was Written—introduces the only characters who appear in more than one story, a family of cave-people, called Tegumai Bopsulai (the father), Teshumai Tewindrow (the mother), and Taffimai Metallumai, (the daughter). Taffy was very like Teshumai, especially about the upper part of the face and the eyes, so the Stranger-man—always a pure Tewara—smiled politely and handed Teshumai the birch-bark. And his little girl-daughter’s name was Taffimai Metallumai, and that means, ‘Small-person-without-any-manners … And his wife's name was Teshumai Tewindrow, and that means, 'Lady-who-asks-a-very-many-questions'; but we, O Best Beloved, will call her Teshumai, … Isn’t it a beautiful picture? Explains how Taffy delivered a picture message to her mother. His name was Tegumai Bopsulai, and that means, ‘Man-who-does-not-put-his-foot-forward-in-a-hurry’; but we, O Best Beloved, will call him Tegumai, for short. Then Teshumai Tewindrow ran down and kissed and hugged Taffy very much indeed; but the Head Chief of the Tribe of Tegumai took Tegumai by the top-knot feathers and shook him severely. He could only gasp and point at Taffy. At present it is only pictures, and, as we have seen to-day, pictures are not always properly understood. ‘I aren’t, said Taffy. Return to the Rudyard Kipling Home Page, or . Why have you filled his hair with mud? I drawded them to show him the way through the swamp; and I drawded Mummy at the mouth of the Cave looking pleased because he is a nice Stranger-man, and I think you are just the stupidest people in the world,’ said Taffy. OF all the Tribe of Tegumai Who cut that figure, none remain,— On Merrow Down the cuckoos cry The silence and the sun remain. But I remember Tegumai Bopsulai, and Taffimai Metallumai and Teshumai Tewindrow, her dear Mummy, and all the days gone by. Isn’t it shocking!’. You don’t know how surprised you’ll be, Daddy! ‘It’s as plain as the nose on this Stranger-man’s face,’ she said. But if I don’t do what she wants, I greatly fear that that haughty Chief, Man-who-turns-his-back-on-callers, will be angry.’ He got up and twisted a big flat piece of bark off a birch-tree and gave it to Taffy. But from that day to this (and I suppose it is all Taffy’s fault), very few little girls have ever liked learning to read or write. ‘It’s a little berangement of my own, Daddy dear,’ said Taffy. The Stranger-man (and he was a Tewara) didn’t say anything, So Taffy put up her little hand and pulled at the beautiful bead and seed and shark-tooth necklace round his neck. ‘Explain! Teshumai Tewindrow: Teshumai, the wife, doesn't justify her name at all in the story. ‘He is a very nice man. And his wife's name was Teshumai Tewindrow, and that means, 'Lady-who-asks-a-very-many-questions'; but we, O Best Beloved, will call her Teshumai… And his wife’s name was Teshumai Tewindrow, and that means, ‘Lady-who-asks-a-very-many-questions’; but we, O Best Beloved, will call her Teshumai, for short. If we did we could send a message for the new spear.’, ‘Taffy,’ said Tegumai, ‘how often have I told you not to use slang?

He took Three Sorrowful Steps and put his head on one side, and shouted, 'I broke tabu! How the First Letter Was Written—introduces the only characters who appear in more than one story, a family of cave-people, called Tegumai Bopsulai (the father), Teshumai Tewindrow (the mother), and Taffimai Metallumai, (the daughter). And it was so just so a little time ago on the banks of the big Wagai! I will away and get help for him from his tribe.’ He did not even ask Taffy the road, but raced off into the bushes like the wind, with the birch-bark in his hand, and Taffy sat down most pleased.
