Walking down the street, proud of the marbles jangling in his pocket, Rahul was happy about his victory over his closest friend and competitor.
Every day, it was customary amongst his gang of friends to challenge one another in a game of marbles and the finale was conducted on Sunday. He was now the hero of the week.
It was a ritual that the winner stood atop the tallest building in the street and await his prize.
From his tower of glory he could sense commotion in their otherwise decrepit stadium. Restless to know about the cause of excitement he jumped down and ran towards the stadium to find his favorite footballer trying to wedge his way through the crowd.
His car having broken down, he had to halt. As soon the news of his presence circulated in the neighborhood, they had gathered to catch a glimpse of him.
Bartering to sneak him out obscurely in return for his autograph, Rahul’s win would be etched in his memory for many years to come by.
