Dogs don’t chase Village Fools …!!


                                                 My Old House in the village as stands NOW

In our village, dogs chased kids and kids chased  Rafut: The village fool , as he was known to everyone, a middle age well built man, a stranger, and outsider, he wasn’t one of the locals, no family, no address and no last name. You never seen him in the fields or at the barber shop, Only showed up in weddings and funerals, for free handout of food, in the street, kids paraded him with insults , showered him with rocks , never retaliated, never complained,,, and that was his only way to survive kids brutality and village ambivalence ! Rafut… , I alway wondered why dogs never chased the village fool!!
