Shankar is a school drop-out who's left the village, drifted to the city and into petty crime. He has been picked up by the police on occasion which has led to an aversion for uniforms and bureaucracy. He escapes a police raid and goes back to the village to avoid the lock-up, but ends up in a different cell anyways.
Btw, a Daffadar is a rank in the Indian Army, equivalent to Sergeant.

And so closes 2017 - and what a year! Worldwide natural disasters, gratuitous manmade crises, and my own personal ones - boy, am I glad to see it's back! BUT... in every end is a new beginning. I'm sure things will either get better, or I'll get used to the chaos :)
Seriously though, 2018 has a whole new set of adventures as well as prompts, see you there people!
I am away travelling from the 15th and most probably won't have Wifi, so I will catch up with you once I am back. With best wishes for a Merry Christmas and/or festive season, and for a superblessed and fun 2018,
