     A long time ago in India, on the banks of the Ganges River, a grand palace stood in the ember rays of a beautiful sunset.  A pair of otters played near the shore.  An Indian family drifted home from the market with fresh food for dinner.  A Sarus crane waded in the water and sang one last song to the fading day.

     Suddenly, a different sound filled the warm evening air.  It was the cry of a newborn child.  A baby prince had been born to the great King and Queen of Banaras.
