The Myth of the Wild Gaur

About "The Myth of the Wild Gaur"

Megham Mountain is a quiet and tranquil hill tucked away in the Nilgiris. The people of the mountain believe in a “Golden Web of Harmony” where animals, plants, and humans can co-exist. However, the peace of the Mountain is threatened when a company begins to extract water from a pristine lake. They aim to bottle the water and sell it under the guise of “Fresh Mineral Water”.

Theni, the daughter of the chief honey collector, discovers the company’s hidden agendas. When the water disappears from the lake near Theni’s home, the Majestic Wild Gaur is the most affected. The herd of Gaurs begins to migrate into the town, leaving behind their destroyed home.

In what follows, Theni and her friends embark on an adventure to confront the company and restore the “Golden Web of Balance”. In the process, Theni discovers more about the Myth of the Wild Gaur and why her ancestors created such a myth in the first place.
