Kukkar the rooster wakes up early morning and calls out to everyone: “Kukraykoo! Kukraykoo!” to wake up all the birds, animals and humans in the city so they can start their busy days on time. The city around him may keep changing but Kukkar’s call to action is the one thing that stays constant. Join us to see how Kukkar’s city grows with the passage of time and tackles many new challenges that lead to the changing of its name to ‘Khaansta Sheher.
