Script Details

For this one, to create a balance of accents, I would like an Indian English speaking female, who can tell a captivating story. Full story attached.  
One day, a poor stonecutter worked chipping stone from the side of a
mountain. Tired and hungry, he said, ‘I wish I’d been born a rich man.’ A
magic spirit heard him and transformed him into a rich man. He enjoyed
his new life, but one day the sun burned him. He said, ‘The sun is more
powerful than me. I wish I was the sun instead of a rich man.’ So the
magical spirit transformed him into the sun. Now he shone down on the
earth. But one day a cloud passed in front of him. ‘The cloud is more
powerful than me! If I’d known this, I would have asked to become a
cloud!’ The magical spirit turned him into a cloud. Now he blocked the
sun and caused cold weather, but one day the wind blew the cloud
away. He said, ‘If I’d been stronger, I could have stopped the wind. I wish
I was the wind.’ The spirit granted his wish. He blew and blew, creating
dust storms and hurricanes, but when he tried to blow a mountain over,
he failed. ‘If only I was stronger, I would have blown that mountain down.
I wish I was a mountain.’ Again, the spirit helped him. Now, he stood
huge and immovable. But one day he felt something chipping at him. It
was a stonecutter. ‘The stonecutter is the strongest of all!’ he said. ‘If
only I had known this, I would have remained a stonecutter. I regret
changing my life, and I want to be a stonecutter again.’ And so the
magic spirit turned him back into a poor stonecutter.
