One evening, Ellie called for a meeting with all animals of the forest. At the meeting, he asked them, “I was wondering whether we should conduct a wrestling competition in our forest. We have never had a competition before but I have seen children training in the school. What do you all think?”

Riko, the raccoon said, “That’s a great idea! I think we should have adults competing with each other as well.”

Eeko, the eagle said, “Yes! Just like how we had a flying competition last month, we should have a competition for other animals. And it is true, we have never had a wrestling competition before.”

Ellie said, “Great! As all of you have agreed, we will have a wrestling competition by the end of this month. We can have different categories for different age groups as well.”
