Pugazhendhi said, “Because, yesterday only I attended a case”


Somanathan asked, “Is it a theft?”

Pugazhendhi said, “No, another variety”


Somanathan said, “can I know about it?”

Pugazhendhi said, “I am not to tell details at this stage”


Pugazhendhi added, “But I am confident that you got attacked by the group of business thieves only”

Somanathan said,”aH! Business thieves! Business thieves! I hate those guys”


Pugazhendhi said, “They are even a big headache to us, sir”

Somanathan said,”mmm…”


Pugazhendhi said,”Ok, sir I need do some more inspection around your bungalow”

Somanathan said,”mmm…please do it, feel free”


Pugazhendhi said,”mmm I am hungry now, it is already lunch time”

Somanathan said,”mmm, If you go to town and have lunch, it will take time”

Pugazhendhi said, “Yes”


Somanathan said, “Can I ask my servants to bring lunch for you here”

Pugazhendhi said,”Ok sir”


Somanathan said, “Then please sit and relax sir”

Pugazhendhi sat on the sofa.


Somanathan said to Suresh, “Go and buy lunch for us and come back soon”

Suresh said, “Yes sir”


Suresh went out to buy lunch for them.

Somanathan sat in front of Pugazhendhi.


Somanathan asked, “What is the aim of these business thieves, sir?”

Pugazhendhi said, “They will attack businessmen”


Somanathan asked, “Why sir, what did we do to them?”

Pugazhendhi laughed, “a! Ha! Ha! what do I know sir; I am attending to the case and doing my best”


Somanathan said, “now, my fear is that, will they attack again on me or not?”

Pugazhendhi said,”mmm…they attack a person one time only”


Somanathan asked, “Why so?”

Pugazhendhi said, “That is how it happened in Chennai”


Pugazhendhi added, “it is a usual mentality of any kind of thief”

Somanathan asked,”Oh! Is it so?”


Pugazhendhi said, “but they choose their targets”

Somanathan said, “You mean that I got chosen?”


Pugazhendhi said, “Yes, of course”

Somanathan said, “Still I don’t believe this because this is my secret hideout”


Pugazhendhi asked, “What about your watch keepers?”

Somanathan said, “They are not strangers to me”


Pugazhendhi asked, “What?”

Somanathan said, “Suresh is my distant relative”


Pugazhendhi said,”Oh! I see”

Somanathan said, “He got educated only up to 8th standard, and did not have any job”


Pugazhendhi said, “So, you made him the watch keeper”

Somanathan said, “I am giving Rs.30000/- salary for him per month sir”


Pugazhendhi exclaimed,”Oh! My god, a watch keeper salary Rs.30000/-“

Somanathan said,”mmm…we are keeping money right?”

Pugazhendhi said, “Now your watch keeper has lost your confidence”


Somanathan said, “what to do, This is something which is powerful than us”

Pugazhendhi said,”mmm…I agree”


Somanathan asked, “So, you mean to say that there is the involvement of robots here”

Pugazhendhi said, “Yes, the front door got cut open”


Somanathan said, “Welding machine can cut it right?”

Pugazhendhi said,”mmm… I accept it, But it could have got programmed to cut”


Somanathan asked, “what do you mean by programmed to cut?”

Pugazhendhi said, “One of our inspectors got killed by a monkey robot”


Somanathan said,”Oh!”

Pugazhendhi said, “The monkey robot took out a sword from its body”


Pugazhendhi added, “And it pounced over him”

Somanathan said,”Oh! My god”


Pugazhendhi said, “at first it slashed him across”

Somanathan said,”Oh!”


Pugazhendhi said, “And at last, it stabbed him to ensure that he dies”

Somanathan said,”Oh! My god, I am not able to digest this”


Pugazhendhi said, “When compared to that case, your case is nothing sir”

Somanathan asked, “What? I have lost 1 crore sir”


Pugazhendhi said, “I mean to say, that they have spared your men alive”
