Kallu Can’t Dance…

But he most certainly can look adorable and arrest the watcher’s attention like an unputdownable novella. With shyness he is sparsely endowed, and of charisma he has plenty. Of the crowds he is a cynosure, and of photographers a dream. He is aged like an adult cat but looks and behaves like a cub whose constant neighbour is his mum’s teats. From Jhumri Talayya here is Kallu, who can’t dance but looks as adorable as a millennium toddler.
