As a child, everyone might have once wondered why do cocks crow before the sunrise and the sunset. This abridged version of the Manipuri folktale, “The Sun and The Cock” explores a very interesting take on it. It’s a story about how the living beings reaches out to a Cock for help to bring the Sun back after it disappear because of the human’s ungrateful attitude towards this gift of God.
