The Tennis Racket!

1. Outside the badminton court: an old bespectacled calm looking guy was playing tennis. I went to the hand pump to wash my feet and then I took a piss nearby. That’s the usual place most people piss in stadium.

2. I felt like asking that man: how much did you pay for that racket ? I asked him that.

Then he said: 3.

I asked again: 3 what?

He said it was 3000. I asked if it was available nearby. As if: I would have made that my next goal.

The thing is: he himself told me:” no one plays tennis here.” I brought it from Bhopal. His demeanor was disarming. I thanked him and parted. It was the first time I saw someone playing tennis inside this stadium.
