While on his way to school, Bakkar goes to the temple and draws a picture of Horus to present in the school’s competition. Bakkar finds a little bird crying because its baby fell from the nest and is trapped. Bakkar helps the bird and carries the baby back to the nest. The wind blows Bakkar’s drawing away and he walks to school feeling very sad, especially when he sees all his friends presenting their work. But then we learn that good deeds always pay back when we find the bird bringing Bakkar’s drawing back to him.
