BASED ON A FALSE STORY

Our story, "Based on a False Story" gives expression to the situation faced by people on being browbeaten by world politics. A clown enters a crowded place and shows antics to attract their attention. Just when he becomes able to bring all of them under his spell, another clown enters. The 2nd clown creates disturbance in the hitherto peaceful atmosphere. After long bouts of squabbles and fights, they both agree that this has to come to an end and decide to divide the space. But the situation becomes more disturbed after a mutually clever division. The squabbling escalates over minor issues. Then they come to the decision to create a buffer space in-between their respective areas. Now they face the stumbling block of what to do with the people in the buffer zone. The state of the general people in this wrangling situation has been expressed in our "Based on a False Story".
