A middle-level management type was waiting at the Sikkapatte Important Company of Karnataka, also known as Murthy Angadi, to take the lift to his third-floor office.
The middle-level management type had recently broken his leg and was finding it difficult to climb the stairs.
Suddenly, sowcar-ru materialised out of nowhere, also to take the lift.
“What are you doing young man?” sowcar-ru asked.
“Waiting for the lift, sowcar-re,” said the middle-level management type.
“Why? Can’t you take the stairs?” sowcar-ru asked.
“But, sir, my leg’s broken,” said the middle-level management type, “and the doctor’s advised me not to strain myself.”
“Young man,” speechified the sowcar-ru, “when I was your age and had a fracture in the leg, I always used to climb the stairs. Even if it was 10 floors up.”
Thus, the middle-level management type began his long, upward journey in the sanctimonious environs of Murthy Angadi.
