Cona seldom heeded her mother's warnings. She often lost her way. But she had figured out a great way to grab her mother's attention. "Baah," she would cry in her crystal clear voice. It would echo through the trees and mom would recognize her baby's pleas. And her mom would find her baby by using her ears; she listens to Cona's baah".
One day, however, Cona got trapped in her own game. She entered the forest and couldn't find her way home. She tried to Baah out loud and call for help. She had forgotten that she had caught a very bad cold. Her nose was blocked and her throat was itchy. She tried with all her might, but all she could manage was a very weak "Boo." No one in the fields could recognize her voice. . Cona was at her wit's end when she caught sight of Paru, the parrot. Seeing Paru gave her an idea. Cona went up to Paru and said,"Aunty Paru,I am lost. You are the eldest. Please help me".Paru said,"Cona Darling,I've heard you have been a very naughty carabao, but anyways, I will take you home".
