Couple of years back on a Sunday evening I was sitting in the BSK IInd stage park relaxing and observing the variety of people coming in and out. Suddenly a thin and untidy looking man came up to me and started begging for a single Idli saying he had not had food for a day or so and was feeling very hungry, but by looking at him I could make out he was a bit drunk.
So I told him to go away but he was persistent and kept on asking, after a couple of minutes I felt it was wise to give this fellow the benefit of the doubt, after all he may not have had food for sometime which is resulting him in being a bit shaky. So I asked him to come along with me and we proceed toward the park exit.
The moment we reached the exit of the park, the man stopped in his tracks, I called him telling the hotel is just a few yards away, but he stood still. Finally he opened his mouth and told us he does not want anything. I insisted, but he did not listen. Hence Iwe went back to the park, meanwhile he had found someone else to beg for a Idli (Never knew Idli was the codename for Liquor!!) ;-)
