“His long pointed nose, tells me that someday this boy will be a very successful man”, said the wise one.

How and when, nobody told him.

The darling of the world, the vision of his father’s eyes, the envy of the neighborhood parents, the pride of his workplace, so many sobriquets garlanded him all through his still young life. All his life, he’d been made to believe that he was a special kid-boy-man.

That life was about to end.
