The Blue Sweater (Neela Kuppāyam)

‘The Blue Sweater’ is the story of a promise made by a girl to her little brother Unni. She will knit him a sweater in his favorite color, blue, by the next full moon. On the following day Unni accidentally enters the forbidden forest and discovers something intriguing; it takes him on a long journey, only to return home on the night of the promise. In the Indian calendar it is 'raksha bandhan', when the special bond between siblings is celebrated. But then, the encounter in the forest has altered the fate of Unni’s little blue sweater, perhaps forever.
