PICTURESQUE 27 - ZorbaBooks


Page 27 It is midnight. The elephant is drowsy and all the guards in the mansion are sleeping. I have not had food since earlier night. I try to wake up the guard. The guard gives me a bread piece and some water. I take it and he untied one of my hands. At least, he is that much cooperative. Soon the guard switches on the radio telecast. It is showing that the prime minister of India is kidnapped and the tribal people of Goa are demanding their independance from indian government in return. They want to be a monarchial government rather than an indian government. They further say that if their demands are not met they would kill me. I look at the people in despair.
