My two boys wanted to play chor-police with their friend. The friend had a gun, my two didn’t. They wanted him to share his gun– he had no such intentions. I could see stormy tantrums at best, a no-holds-barred fistfight at worst.
“Why don’t you play something else?”, I intervened.
“We want to play chor-police only!”
“Why don’t you play terrorist-police instead? Your friend can be the terrorist, you be the police.”
“But we still need guns.”
“Not if you are the Mumbai Police, you don’t. Mumbai Police takes on terrorists with lathis.”
Sometimes Truth does show you the way!
