Motu Chacha is an obese story teller who rides through the desert on his disgruntled old donkey. He stops at villages en route, to tell tales and hence the title ‘The Peddler of Stories’. While narrating these tales to the children of the village, he spots a kind-hearted child in the audience and with his magical powers, makes this child a part of his adventure who consequently becomes the hero of his story. In ‘The Peddler of Stories’ ‘Ramadan’ a brave twelve-year-old is the hero. The young lad is naughty but kind. Like any twelve-year-old, he is curious about the forbidden and is on a perpetual voyage of discovery; from overhearing conversations about Hooris in the Kismet Saloon, to his love for adventure; from his disdain for his school master, who he considers an incarnate of the devil, to his fear of his Abbu, who has warned him to curtail his mischief or be sold to the sheik as a slave.
