Interactive video lesson plan for: Episode 11: Breathe Deep, Levitate! (Appu - The Yogic Elephant)

Activity overview:

Neena is all alone, pondering over all the good times she's had with Appu. Things have changed for her at home since her brother's birth.
Her parents are busy with taking care of the little one... Happens!

Her parents have grow stricter with her. She can't go to the forest, she has to finish her homework on her own, and to top it all keep
Tiger out of trouble.

There are too many changes for her to cope with. Tiger is sailing in the same boat. He tugs at Neena and desperately tries to tell her he wants to meet Appu too!

Does Neena understand what he does? No, she's confused. She resists, only in vain. She runs after rebellious Tiger, trying to make sure he stays out of trouble... Her parents specifically tell her to keep an eye on him.

Tiger loses it. It has been days since he met animals who can actually understand what he says, and talk back to him. Yes, he used to be jealous of Appu, but something has changed completely... Appu is his only means of communication with Neena!

Appu can put his thoughts into her head. It's a trick that Tiger, who has grown up with Neena, would definitely want to learn. He cannot wait to have full length conversations with Neena...

That's what drives Tiger to race outside the apartment. Does he go through the entrance? No. He has enough sense to avoid the ever-snoozy security. He takes to his heels and heads out through a hole in the Upvan apartment complex wall. Neena frantically runs after him.

Meanwhile, back in the forest, Stretchy, Igress and Appu are having a feast. Igress is surprised by all her new discoveries. The fruits in the forest bring her taste-buds to life. It's all new for Stretchy too... She is clueless about what to eat and what not to eat. They both let Appu take the lead in scouting for food.

Appu's thoughts are with Neena... He cannot help wondering what she might be up to, and how much she would like being in the forest with all the trees and fruits around.

Back outside Upvan apartment building, tragedy strikes. Tiger is in grave danger. He gets electrocuted by an electric fence that's newly added to the vicinity. He jumps back in a fraction of a second, leaving Neena horrified. He lies motionless.

This is something that a superhero like Appu is bound to pick up on! Two of his friends are in crisis! His Yogic senses begin to tingle. Naturally, because Tiger and Neena are very dear to him, and he just cannot let anything happen to them. What does he do? Or rather what can he do?

Somebody has put up such a defence mainly because they don't want wild animals wandering into the semi-urban community...

Is Appu strong enough to break through a high-voltage electric fence? Watch this riveting episode to know this and more. Appu's powers keep growing every minute...He uses them to the fullest!
