We are taught from childhood that do not lie and say what is in our heart. Aba Mian had trained like this. Started going to school. One day in a livestock class, Astaniji asked, “Which animal do you like?” “Roast Chicken”, We gave the voice of the heart the language of truth. Astaniji looked at us with angry eyes, grabbed us by the collar and took us to the principal.
The principal listened to the whole thing, questioned us and our defendant laughed out loud after listening carefully. He warned us not to say that in the future and sent us away. We were still in awe of the whole incident. After coming home, I informed my father about the whole incident in detail. He also laughed a lot and advised us not to do such things in the future.
We could not understand this duplicity of the times, but we vowed in our hearts not to do such things in the future. The next day, Astaniji repeated the same question again. The “living chicken” was happy to hear our answer and asked the next question, “Why?” “To roast it”, was our natural response. In a short while we were brought face to face with the principal again. He again laughingly warned him not to say that in the future and released him.
Astaniji repeated the same question again the next day.
“Live chicken”, we replied with satisfaction.
“To breed him”, we said confidently. A wave of happiness appeared on his face.
“Why?” Next question.
“So that we can have lovely cute chicks”, our confidence was restored.
“What will you do with them?” There was an expression of victory in his tone.
“Raising them to be all healthy chickens”
“Why?” Astaniji released his Takiya Kalam.
“So as to roast them all”, the phrase slips from our tongues unwillingly.
The next day we were again presented to the principal
but in a new school۔
