By Neel Anil Panicker

“I have spotted him. He’s here, right in front of my eyes.”


“Across the road. On the kerb, waiting for the lights to turn green, his eyes riveted on the concrete footpath.”

How can you be sure it’s our man. What’s he wearing?

“Long white cossack, a cap, no, it’s more like a hat, something similar to what the Britishers wear. What do you call that? Wait, let me recollect. Yeah, I got it. It’s a bowler hat. Well not exactly a bowler but something similar to that, slightly smaller, though. It’s covering his small oval shaped head.”

He could be a monk, you stupid!

“Nope. I know them. Here in the Himalayas they go barefoot. This one’s wearing shoes. Black, pointed, three inches thick, the kind worn by the Mossad.”

Oh my holy Jesus! We are in trouble. Run. Run Peter, run.

“Too late, Boss. He’s thrown a bomb. It’s coming my way. Byeee…”

  2. Hahaha! That was good fun, Neel. Nice reveal at the end with the shoes.


  3. The Mossad? Yes, I know it’s the Israeli Intelligence Agency, but since when did they start throwing bombs?


  4. Chilling to think they get bombed in the end! Great story Neel!

    The shoes threw me to, so I went down a similar path to you.
