Narendra was a fun loving lad and as a young boy, often, he went to his friend’s house to play with the children of the neighbourhood as their leader. The main attraction there was a big tree with man sturdy branches conveniently bent down for the children to climb up and down easily. The children had great fun in exhibiting their skills playfully on the tree-top by swinging, hanging and dangling down their bodies with loud cheers and laughter.
On afternoons, his friend’s grandfather, who was unsympathetic to the boys, was taking a siesta after his lunch. The loud noises from the treetop disturbed the old man’s nap. He got furious and shouted at the boys, ‘You fools, how dare you climb that tree? Don’t you know that a fiery ghost was always staying there? He likes to crush the necks of those who go near the tree…’.
