Over the incident that u are about to read, our family has laughed a good number of times, through the years.
Introduction: Our family knew 2 irresponsible bachelor brothers staying in bangalore. The 2 bachelors had another elder brother who was quite a responsible guy and well respected, who also happened to be our neighbour. Among the bachelors, the elder's name was Rajan, who didnt like working. He whiled his time away smoking and looking at girls and women while sitting at his door step. The younger bachelor was vijayan who too was as irresponsible, but atleast he worked as a tailor, to fill up his stomach.
Our next door neighbour Mrs. Chandrika was also a malayalee. She came to know that Rajan (elder bachelor) was going to kerala in a few days time. She wanted to send some money (saved without her husband's knowledge, possibly) to her elder sister without incurring any charges. Once when Rajan came to our house Mrs Chandrika called him and asked if he could do her a favour. She asked him to give a consignment to her elder sister, since Rajan's native was quite near to her elder sister's. He agreed to the request, though he didnt like Mrs. Chandrika at all.
Mrs. Chandrika gave him a platic bag and asked the thing to be given to her elder sister. While Rajan was in the train enroute to kerala from bangalore, he remembered about the plastic bag given by our neighbour. He took it out and saw that it contained only old clothes. Why should anyone give old clothes to one's own kin. More than any else, the thing which caught his attention was a bra which was quite old. Whatever the situation, no one ever gives used inner garments to others, let alone a sister. He smelled something fishy. Rajan started checking the bra thoroughly, and he found something inserted under the strap. There was a slit made and Rs.200/- was folded neatly and inserted inside. He cooly took the money, pocketed it and kept the bra back.
Once in kerala, he went to Mrs.Chandrika's Sister's house and handed over the plastic bag. The lady took the plastic bag. Later she would have searched for the money as briefed by Mrs. Chandrika through letter. Alas, there wasn't any trace of money in the bra strap.
After a week or two, Rajan came back to Bangalore, and as usual he visited our home. Mrs Chandrika saw him and gave him a harsh loook, but couldnt say anything. The money was gone, but she couldnt claim it. Nor could she tell this to her husband, she was in total fix, and had lost the money.
(Rajan and Vijayan, still remain as irresponsbile as ever. Rajan still doesnt work, though its more than 25 years, since this incident happened. Both are unhappily married, with kids in their teens and early 20s)
