How the rainbow got its colours

Original Story

Written by Nidhi Gupta

Can you imagine a bright sunny day with the skies all grey? Can you imagine that macaws are grey and hummingbirds are white? That the only colour in the sky is the ever yellow sun with none of its fiery red sunrises and sunsets?


That’s exactly how our world was millions of years ago. But then, thanks to a wonderful macaw called Zuzu, everything changed.


Here’s a magical tale about how Zuzu and her friends made our skies and rainbows colourful.

This is a special story for 6-year-old Kaveri Anand Agarwala, gifted to her by her friend Nandita Gautam.
