The village woke up.
Ramayya was bitten by a snake.
Somayya yelled aloud calling others.
Krishna rushed to bring the village druid, Peer Saheb.
Bramnayya
went to fetch a wizard from other village.
A young doctor appeared with his stethoscope and kit.
Some youngsters with sticks searched for the slimy fugitive. Within minutes the entire village was at Ramayya’s threshold.
No one knows what worked.
Ramayya recovered.
Ramesh, a young lad came with the carcass
of the snake hanging at the end of his stick.
“A cobra!”people exclaimed.
This happened 30 years ago.
————
Now Ramayya won’t talk to Somayya.
Somayya doesn’t enter Krishna’s street.
Peer Sahev is no more. His children settled in city.
Recently Brammayya was beaten by Suresh in paddy fields.
Flags of different colours are flying on houses.
Recent riot before elections consumed 5 lives.
Now the entire village looks as if it is poisoned.
No doctor to treat it. No antidote…
No anti-venom serum can save this village.
This time it is not a cobra.
The village is bitten by politics!
