A Day of Solidarity Subba Rao One day on April 18, a lone monkey lazily wandered into a town center in New England. In a town where a small fender bender is big news; a stray monkey jumping on the City Hall steps was sensational news. The local TV camera crew followed around the monkey to get a good footage for the evening news. The city mayor, an Irish American and his staff were all got excited in dealing with the monkey business. Sam Ram is a prosperous hotelier and also owns the only two gas stations in town. Though he is an Indian American, he was often mistaken for African American because of his dark skin and curly hair. A spokes person for town's small effluent Indian American community of mostly professionals from medical and IT business, Sam Ram is the short version of his long name Samudrala Rambhadrudu. He is known for his charity and generous donations for every cause in town. As a person he was very likable and easy going. Always wearing a flamboyant l tie loosely knot around his neck, a heavy set man in mid 60's but looks young with curly grey hair let loose over his shoulders, Sam could be seen every where all the time around the town. “I love your tie Sam,” was the common greeting he gets all the time. Though lived in US for over 3 decades, he still has a faint Indian accent. He shakes his head sideways like most Indians during a conversation as a sign of agreement often confusing people except those know him well. If there was something in Indian mannerism he could not shake off was his sidewise head shake and his accent. The word got around pretty fast on monkey sightings attracting plenty onlookers. On hearing the news on monkey, Sam Ram quickly drove to the city center to find a group of people spear headed by the Mayor watching the monkey sitting on the top of the City Hall Steps. “What we should do Sam Ram?” the mayor patted softly on Sam's shoulder. “Amazing,” said Sam Ram breathing heavy from running towards the City Hall steps to join the watching crowd. “Call l the animal control to capture the animal,” shouted the Mayor to his assistants. “No, wait a minute,” shouted back Sam Ram stretching his hands as if he was protecting the monkey from a possible harm.
