Short story

There was a cheetah, a giraffe and porcupine who were best of friends.
The jungle was going through an economic slump.
So the cheetah decided he would go to the city for career opportunities.
The giraffe's mom had a habit of comparing the giraffe to the cheetah all the time and the giraffe knew if the cheetah reaches the city, he is dead.
He tried to stop the cheetah but he couldnt.
The cheetah was now in the city.
The giraffe and the porcupine were left in the jungle.
They had to do something to make it big.
So the joined the jungle school of Management.
They pledged that they would make it big in this B school.
But giraffe just could not understand management.
He was too dumb for it man.
Or may be he was too pragmatic.
He found management weird.
He could not understand why there is so much fuss about non existent issues.
'Conceptualize, strategize, organize, Prioritize'; Just in time theory and whatever...
But he had to make it big as the cheetah had already done it.
Thus he came up with a research paper on 'there and then' theory.
He explained why all decision should be made at the fastest possible with minimum of fuss and junked mathematics.
his paper was revered.
He was a celebrity.
Now the porcupine thought, cheetah is in the city, giraffe is a celeb, what do I do?
He decided he would top jungle school of management and get the top placement.
he topped every exam in JSM.
But still the giraffe bagged the top placement for his research paper.
The porcupine fell apart.
He was the only loser in the trio now.
What did he do?
He got into drinking.
He drank drank drank till his neck.

......drank drank and drank till the alcohol was sloshing at the back of his teeth... Fell in love with a hooker... Married her, got Herpes from her.. Since his mom wasnt the complaining kind, she was ok..

Porky went on to live a mediocre existence, offering his services at the Chinese Accupressurist's..

I know all that.. And I know I'm the cheetah :)

So what are you? The porcupine? Or the STD infected hooker??

Meghna said...

Lovely......LOL! U have a strange mind and unique thoughts.....loved it....jst cant stop laughing and waiting fr the cont.

Sachin Garg said...

@ seth,
I am none of the mentioned ones.
This post is pure fiction.
Any resemblance to anybody living or dead is purely coincidental.
As for the ending,
urs is much better than mine.

Sachin Garg said...

I hope I have not set the expectations too high.

creyzeee said...

c'mon!! of cors der's more dan just "coincidential resemblance" :P

Sachin Garg said...

for crazy:
every work of fiction has certain level of resemblance to reality because the author must have been forced to think in that way by some experience in his life. Only then he would have written it.
Apart from that, this is PURE fiction.
trust me.

I would have left a comment on the 2nd part of the story but I didnt want to raise the 'comment count', and the purpose of this comment was solely to inform you that I intentionally didnt raise the comment count on that one.

PS:Phew lots of 'comment' usage there.
