Why Kitti Buys So Many Jackfruits Durable Link to this entry

Kitti surely was a child prodigy. He took to music and flute like fish takes to water. All family members who heard him play the flute called him "boy Krishna" and made Kitti's parents proud.

But as Kitti grew up, the Bharatanatyam girls to whom Kitti used to provide accompaniment during performances for a fee -- preferred other flutists. Kitti just couldn't live up to his own expectations and started suffering from a complex.

Then something happened.

Kitti started playing the flute in the Bazar on the mold by Ramesh's Tea Stall. At first the townspeople ignored him, but the cows from all over the neighborhoods started gathering in the Bazar, causing congestion and chaos.

It was just like the cows had followed Lord Krishna as he played his flute!

The words around and it brought much joy and publicity to Kitty's family, and much jealousy to the other flutists of the town.

Then one night Raju and Nagesh on their way back from second show in Jyoti Cinema found Kitti stashing some heavy bags behind Ramesh's cafe.

They appeared to contain jack fruits.
