The Greatest Love Of All


There were two brothers- Subu & Kubu. While Subu was goodhearted, Kubu was cunning.

When their father passed away, Subu got an old-trunk as inheritance while Kubu got the whole house & property. Kubu laughingly took over everything, complying with his father’s desire about the trunk to be gifted to Subu. 

The trunk had some old books & palm-leaves. 

Everyone felt Subu got a bad deal...

Subu lovingly accepted his father’s gift. He soon realized that the trunk’s contents were priceless ancient manuscripts- Pattachitras & TalapatraChitra. 

Subu’s father’s love was evident- the greatest love of all for his goodhearted son.
