Yesterday at around noon, Mahela and Kumar Sagakkara become victims of another vicious attack by the play ground bullies. The bullies threw their toys on the floor and chucked their lunches into the sandbox.
Mahela and Kumar had been so looking forward to their chicken sandwiches but had to go home in tears.
When the PTA meeting was called to find out why these two are being bullied so much, Mahelas rich dad and mommy showed up in raging anger.
They asked the rest of the parents “Why are you abusing our son ? Just because he is the captain of the cricket team it does not mean you can bully him like this.
He is a very sensitive boy and his feelings have been deeply hurt.”
When a heckler made a comment about the size of Mahelas eyebrows, Mahela started weeping and cried out for his mother.
At this point, Kumar’s father stepped in “Listen here, I am Kumars father and I am a very important man and I know more big words than Kumar, so you will listen to what I say.
Our boys just want to play cricket for their country in a peaceful manner. Why are you sending them bouncer after bouncer like this. It is wrong..”. As his voice got groggy and eyes started to well up, his wife put a loving arm around him and his son and asked who ever it was to own up.
It was then that Rex’s dad stood up.
“Ok fine, it was my son. But you know why no body likes your son?
You say he is the captain of our team but we found out he has been secretly playing for the team across the road”
“Has he no sense of loyalty or does he only care about maximising his profit making opportunities”. said Rex’s dad.
“My son bullied your son and I’m proud of it.”. Rex stood up at this point, beaming.
The rest of the parents yelled “Amen to that !!”.
Kumar and Mahela clung to each other, sobbing uncontrollably, snot and drool wetting their tight fitted t-shirts.
“Please just leave us alone…we just want to play cricket….sob…we only wanted to make some money…is that so wrong..sob..sob…”.
“It was Arjuna who told us we could play for the other team”.
It was then that, Jabba the hut, Arjuna’s dad, said “My son said no such thing ! How dare you little rich rascals accuse my son !”
Someone throws a chair at Jabba the hut, which bounces off his belly and hits Rex square in the face. Who throws a rotten tomato at Kumar and Mahela.
A fight break out…
Thus ends another day at SLC Junior High.
