55 Fiction: Thakur’s Raksha Bandhan

Disclaimer: This piece of fiction is purely imaginary and is inspired by an internet meme that circulated on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan this Sunday. The author has no intention to offend the makers or the cast and crew of Sholay, the epic Bollywood movie from which the characters Thakur and Gabbar Singh have been taken. 

She was preparing the Raksha Bandhan thali. Her brother Thakur  promised to return home early from work and she was excited to tie the Rakhi on his wrist.

Some hours later, Thakur entered the house. He was draped in a blood-stained shawl.

His arms were chopped off by the dreaded bandit Gabbar Singh. She collapsed!
