One Jamila and One Tea

One Jamila and One Tea

A Story by psisatyr

It's flash fiction about a Kerala woman politician named Jamila who became notoriously famous.


Jamila is a woman and she is the Member (MLA, Member of Legislative Assembly) of Kerala State. She has become notoriously famous as an aggressive female chauvinist and feminist. Her name Jamila has become a metaphor for eating. Now how did this happen? When the budget session was going on she rushed to the Chief Minister’s chair to protest. A ruling (MLA) restrained her by showing his arm and blocking her. And Jamila to the surprise of all bit him viciously. Now in local tea shops and eateries, people will order by saying: ‘one Jamila and one tea’.

Jamila certainly had the right idea. Desperate times call for desperate measures.
