'This is a story that happened

many decades ago'

'In a seafaring village, a fisherman whose

life revolved only around fish and sea...'

'...stumbled upon a treasure'


'2 words are oft-repeated

in the annals of history'

'The 2nd word is Fear'

'It was fear that instigated treachery'

'Betrayal is the 1st word,

often heard and repeated in History'

'Time ticked by, submerged in tears'

'The fisherman yearned for forgiveness'

'What followed thereafter'

'Realizing his friendship was now

renewed as a ray of hope...'

'The disciple continued

the journey of his teacher'

'He wanted to shower the world with peace'

'But this world did not

give him peace of mind'

'The fisherman faced the same fate

his friendship experienced'

'The mortal remains of the fisherman,

not given a formal burial...'

'...according to common belief is said

to be under a tree in the Vatican'

'The Roman empire declined

after this incident'

'Is the improper burial and the decline

of an empire a mere coincidence?'

'The arrival of a leader was

the answer to fervent prayers'

'Performing what was expected...' grant him the peace

that had been elusive'

'...the leader built

a shrine for the fisherman'

'But can peace be attained so easily?'

'Greed and fury of mankind

hounded and hunted peace'

'Rumors spread that the fisherman's remains

contained mystical powers'

'Therefore wars were waged

Corpses heaped, on a rampage'

'But no one realized

the remains yearned only for peace'

'The fisherman reached

his final destination'

'Can any other dwelling be more apt

than the sea-bed for a fisherman?'

'Having been submerged under the sea

he emerges on every Christmas day...'

' makes amends for the friendship

he betrayed, according to folklore'

'Thereafter he rests in peace again'

'Let treachery sleep'

'That by itself is a balm for friendship'

'It augurs well for this world too'

'Shots were fired

on Christmas eve'

Here, bro

Good morning

Is it a good morning?

What is this, Mani?

I said investigation is pending

but they printed it

What's the tearing hurry?

I don't understand

Swaminathan is to blame, madam

'- Proof reading is done

- Shall I come later?'

'Only printing to be done'

'Mr Swaminathan'

Complete everything in 1 week

What is this, sir?

Try to understand

This is a small crime-beat article

Shouldn't waste so much time

I worked on it for a week

I went to Tuticorin

I did all this research

Came up with so much work

Christmas night

Everybody was drunk

Jam packed crowd

It's quite common

for such incidents to occur

That's what I too thought at first

But only after I spoke

with the locals there I knew

There's more to it

than meets the eye!

In fact

I saw him there

The town too seemed very normal

But so much commotion

the very next day!

Sir, even the cops

have closed the file


As if they will be bothered

1 more in their 10 cases daily

Exactly, that is what I'm saying

This is very trivial

Sir, there are many hidden stories

in this small incident

Even to listen isn't it confusing?

That's why, sir

I want to write about everyone involved

in this incident as separate chapters

When I do so...

...we'll get answers to all the queries

regarding this incident

Why are you so interested?

'Anything personal?'

Nothing of that sort, sir

In case I don't like this article... should go and

interview that actress


What is the title of your story?

He's like my own son

even if I'm not his father

I'll tell you all that I know

Without missing anything
