As the jubilant captain surrounded by his teammates lifted the glittering diamond-studded trophy high up in the air, the jam packed stadium erupted in joy with the thunderous shouts and war cries of frenzied football lovers.

The loudest of the applauses  were reserved for one man, the winning team’s diminutive but ever smiling coach Frederick D’ Souza.

Later in the evening, during the presser, one of the journalists asked him, “How is it you that the boys you pick are all from the rural hinterlands, from the boondocks, absolute nobodys, who in no time metamorphose into world class players?”

The middle aged coach looked the journo in the eye and replied, without batting an eye, ‘Unlike others, I don’t chase the latest fashion which I know is anyways ephemeral. Instead, I groom ran outsiders who have nothing to show but passion, something that always gives returns as it is permanent.’

A blue chip first job via campus selection, doting parents who would steal the moon for her, an hour glass figure attractive enough to give any beauty contest winner a serious complex besides sending the male members of the human tribe into wild eyed delirium___at twenty three, life for Esther was one big never ending party.

That was when Shiamak happened.

A recent transfer from Head Office, the gangly sweet talking Accounts Manager turned out to be one not just blessed with a yen for facts but also a passion for figures.

Soon, Cupid struck and marriage followed.

Pity, she loved him with her heart and soul; he eyed her as just another a piece of meat, forever drilling holes into her heart.
