Rajah Muchacho Singh is very proud of his superb curly-whirly-twirly moustache. He orders that everything in his kingdom must match the shape of his moustache. Then, one morning, the Rajah wakes up to find his moustache growing straight! He does everything he can to make his moustache curly-whirly-twirly again. He calls for the help of the palace barber, the palace cook and the palace gardener. Does he succeed?

Asha speaks: “I’ve acquired a great many moustaches over the years! The Rajah’s signature curly-whirly-twirly moustache is an indispensable accessory on my school visits and the source of much merriment whenever I sport it. Friends also started gifting me moustache-shaped earrings and bracelets to use. I’ve also made hundreds (literally) of moustaches to gift to children who look wistfully at mine!”
