Adidhadi Udhavara Maari Annan Thambinga Udhava Maatanga

The caption for this post is a popular Tamil saying which translates into...

"A sound thrashing would probably be more useful than having brothers."

The following post is a 54 word short story. Just like my tagger, brevity is not my strong point.Anyway the following story is actually inspired from a true life story. No prizes for guessing whose life.

A non-smoker's story

"Have a cigarette man."

Rahul Chaturvedi turned down the generous offer and ran his palm over his left cheek.

About 16 years back a 4 foot Rahul bent down to pick up a half smoked Marlboro lying on the road. Mr.Chaturvedi slapped Rahul so hard that he fell face down on the platform.

The End

I tag Karthik, Radhika and PS to write a short story in less than 55 words. Good luck!

:O Rahul wanted to smoke a Marlboro when he was 8? (assuming he is 24 now)
