Shastri and friends(Part-1)

A Story by Kuldeep desai

Inspired by Malgudi days

 (Inside classroom of 7th std, Model Primary School)
“Swati do you know that yesterday Shastri hugged that bad luck tree its seems and everyone ran after seeing that?”
“Shilpa are you serious? That too we are sitting behind him and you are telling now, come let’s move the bench bit backwards we should maintain distance”
“Swati !!!Shilpa !!! come lets go to play its 4:00 even teacher gave the permission”

(Everyone run towards the ground)

(Manju telling his fellowmates in the ground )

“Hey see there bad luck Shastri don’t touch him, don’t take him in the team. Hey you go and sit in class don’t come to play with us”

“Manju what I have done wrong, I just hugged it to show you that nothing will happen, its also a normal tree like others”

“No its not,  once a guy touched it and bad luck followed him and he became devil and ate all his friends”

(Swamy who was Shastri’s best friend interferes saying.)

“Manju its all an rumor it has never happened”

“Swami I know u r his best friend, but from now you be away from him”

: “Swami its ok I will go to class you guys play!!!!”

“Oh!!!no it started raining see Swamy its all because of Shastri now no one cant play come lets go to class and this has happened for 3rd time whenever he comes to play its starts raining”

(Shastri going alone to home from School after when School is left)
Swami runs towards him and stops Shastri
“Shastri why cant you stop when I am calling you?”

“Swami go away if they see you with me, you will also be treated bad like me!!!!”

“Let them see, its all hoax and one day for sure they will come to know about that, I don’t understand why others friends believe whatever Manju says even Swati and Shilpa, we used to play together but still…...”

“Swami now what to do?”

“Don’t worry I will find a way…..”

(Next day morning shastri getting ready for School)

“Amma(mom) where is English notes I cant see them, I am getting late”

(Shastri’s father in anger)
“You should search and keep it ready ,before sleeping idiot now you are searching at last moment daily how many times should I tell you are not a small kid!!!!!”

(Shastri’s mother comes in hurry)
“Its here I got it you go and have your breakfast I will dress him up you are getting late for office. Shastri daily how many times you will get scolding from your father? Try to be god boy no, ok go and have breakfast fast its already late”
