Beware of such dramas..

9 Oct

This happened to a colleague of mine.

He was travelling with his family towards Agra.When he was a few hours away from his destination he decided to dispose of the food they had carried. Most of these long distance travellers carry surplus food just in case their journey takes longer than what is planned.And the food is mostly poories and  pickles, sev and sweets etc.

He found a beggar in the train a suitable candidate for receiving the remaining food.He promptly handed the food. The beggar boy gladly ate a mouthful and …..screamed and…….fainted.all the passengers were shocked.Suddenly a horde of beggars landed into the compartment and created a ruckus. They wanted my friend to come to the police station in the next station and there after   to the nearest hospital.My colleague tried his best to convince everybody that the food hadnt gone bad. They had consumed it a few minutes ago and were still safe and sound . Nobody heard them. The co- passengers were either too scared or shocked.

The beggars’ sangha continued their dharna and gradually started demanding a few thousands for treatment.Many co-passengers advised my colleague to ‘give something and get rid of them ‘.Finally after much bargaining they settled down to a few hundreds.

 In the next station the ‘poisoned’ beggar was carried off the train by his friends.

Just as the whistle blew , my colleague  and the passengers were in for another surprise. They saw the same gang board another train for Act II , scene II….The ‘poisoned ‘ beggar was leading the others.
