THE DON’S CUP OF WORRIES… (Part 21 of A Dangerous Love)
By Neel Anil Panicker
As darkness descends, snaking its way past the giant mulberry trees that line up the heavily fortified four walls of Sumer Manzil, the icy chill that has enveloped all of Old Delhi finds resonance in an inner private room where holed up is Afzal Guru, the feared mafia don, his usually sanguine face a cornucopia of worried lines.
Tonight, the man whose very name is enough to send a chill down the spine of his enemies has a lot to worry about on his plate.
The crime business is turning riskier by the day; the big Daddies are slowly turning tech savvy, riding on the waves of technology to engineer multi-crore white collar crimes, deeds that could be committed without shedding a drop of blood, without getting one’s hands dirty.
In short black collar crimes and by its extension their exponents were slowly losing their sheen, and no longer were they beautiful; instead white comes cloaked in a veil of respectability.
Sipping into his Johnny Walker Black Label, the Don mulls and mourns the loss of such lost glories, and then slowly his thoughts stumble upon another major worry__Ali, his once loyal acolyte turned turncoat; the one who now has grown too big for his boots and threatens to tear asunder the multi-layered crime syndicate that he had built from scratch.
The thought of Ali and his perfidious acts races his heart beats and as his large bulbous eyes redden with a bloody rage, he finally crashes his enormous nearly 100 kilo frame onto the sprawling velvety diwan to mull ways and means to send Liza, his daughter and Ali’s lover hurtling into the arms of death.
