THE POISONOUS CASE Detective Roligue D'souza was pacing up and down in his office. His mind was deeply indulged in the case he had most recently ‘earned'- yeh – he believed that cases are to be earned and money to be collected. His assistant, Kumar was sitting on his chair, his head keeping up with the pace of D'souza – moving left, then right, and then left. Kumar was just opposite of D'souza who was a well-built man, callous, wise, and a ‘deep thinker and a quick actor'. On the other hand, Kumar was a simple young man with still an attitude of a teenager, very sensitive, ‘a simple body, simple mind' person who cannot think beyond his limits. Besides this, he had an intense appreciation for his biology teacher. D'souza had to explain him everything in detail, which made him a victim of his short temper. There was no match between them, if D'souza was the mighty sky who believed in ruling the world, then Kumar was the simple earth, too emotional – who would blossom several beautiful flowers when happy and would bring in calamities when angry. However, if they were sky and earth then, there must be a horizon, and in fact, there was a horizon – it was their understanding, love and care for each other. D'souza could have easily appointed a wiser person instead of Kumar. But, he was very much fascinated by Kumar's enthusiasm – he found that his honey coloured eyes had something very different. He believed that Kumar had the potential but needs an opportunity to express it. He found a sense of trust and faithfulness in him. Kumar was not strong but he would never run away leaving him in trouble. And, that made a strong bond, which held them together till date. D'souza wore no emotions on his face but he had deep affection for Kumar. He thought him to be his younger brother and that was the reason why in spite of Kumar's mistakes and foolish acts, he never turned him out. A man, who would shoot anyone without any thoughts arising in his mind, would regret even after scolding his assistant, such was the intensity of his love. Meanwhile Roligue had stopped with his ‘walkthinking' as Kumar described it, and stood beside Kumar leaning over the case file – “so, Mrs Sheela Ranawat, found dead in her residence. A suicide note found beside the body. It read – ‘I am fully contended with my life. I didn't want any more. I have a loving and caring husband, money and all that one can dream of. I always wanted to die in peace, with all these luxuries. Life is unpredictable, I would not tolerate if life takes a turn and we will be left with nothing. Therefore, I have decided to die now, with no complain in my heart and no desires left to be fulfilled. It's solely my own decision; no one is responsible for it in any possible way.' What a reason to die? Was that woman's heart in right place?” snorted D'souza Suddenly Kumar turned to D'souza as if to say something but then shook his head and looked back at the file. “What? ...Out with it,” said D'souza knowing very well that it was not worth use. “Sir, the post mortem report shows that she died of poisoning – arsenic poisoning...” “So?” asked D'souza annoyed. “but there is no information about her heart ,I think it was in the middle of chest inclined towards left as I have studied ...my biology teacher declared it the appropriate place...” said Kumar trying to explain himself as clearly as possible. “Oh shut up you fool. It's just a proverb,” said D'souza who was used to his lack of knowledge about proverbs. Then he looked at the details of the body. Suddenly something stuck to his mind. “Look Kumar, this lady's right hand is slightly bigger than the left one...” “But sir... my biology teacher said that...” Kumar started giving his own reasons when D'souza interrupted him.
