Regulars

The patriarch’s death is covered by media as a social setback. He was a renowned philanthropist, who spent a lifetime in serving the less privileged.

Backstage

His signature is forged on nomination forms.

Jewellery and valuables from his cupboard go missing.

His kith and kin refuse to perform all the rituals related to death, for lack of time and other pre-occupations. He was bedridden for the last two years, and had sapped the family’s energy completely.

On stage

An emotional speech about the lessons drawn from his life is being delivered.

Social media posts and obituaries compete in the same spirit.

Unfortunately, the criminals are regulars who visited him, and claimed to care for him.
