Being Salman.

Salman is a beggar who sits by the street lamp in the bazaar. Salman, though is unlike the other beggars. He did not become a beggar by anybody's choice but by chance. One day Salman was sitting intoxicated in the bazaar by this lamp post. When he came back to his senses he found coins and notes in front of him. He was amused by this and started sitting there everyday.

Salman sits there everyday, mostly intoxicated, staring at the tea shop across the street. His family owns the tea shop. They had disowned him as soon as they came to know about his side business.

Today he couldn't find the third guy who was part of the gang of three college students, who were regulars at the tea shop. Salman wondered why.
