Geeta replied, “The wind took out one of my clothes and I followed it.” “Oh, you look very tired,” said wind’s mother. She took her to the next room. The room was filled with delicious eatables, fruits, and sweets. “You can have whatever you want,” said the wind’s mother. Geeta took an apple which was enough to fill her stomach.
