 As they walked towards the hut, thinking how to help amma, Aditya suddenly stopped and took a back step. “Wait,” he said. Aira stopped and looked in the direction he was looking. “Do you see..” he said and Aira interrupted saying “yes, that place is where we met them yesterday. It looks like people have started coming already.” Aditya took a few steps ahead and climbed a tree. “That’s where they are. I see...about a dozen of them,” he said straining to see through the distance. “I have given the time for the evening. They have started coming by afternoon!” she gasped anxiously. “How much time do we have,” he asked. She quickly checked and said “nearly two hours.” “But we cannot just ignore them” she added.

She went closer to him, as he jumped down the tree saying “yes, we cannot ignore.” “If we leave this place without addressing them, I am sure they will get after amma.” she said pressingly. “I see that we need to address them,” he said shrugging off his clothes. "But...we cannot wait until evening. We need to leave in two hours. We need to leave exactly at the time that was preset for us to leave,” she said anxiously. “Yes, we cannot wait until evening. I think we are better off making an early address.” he said. “You saw just a dozen there, there were hundreds of them yesterday,” she said, thinking. “We could wait for an hour for more people to gather. Just think of it. A bunch of kids was after us in the beginning. Looking at your projector, we saw they pooled in hundreds of adults yesterday. These hundreds have been mesmerized by your act. There would be thousands in the evening. I don't think the owl thing will work again. We are better off addressing a smaller crowd,” he said.


“But... We were not going to address them at all. what will we say to them,” she mumbled. “We had realized that not addressing them would get amma into trouble. Now that they are gathering, we actually can address them. Had they not started coming early, we would have left with the regret of not addressing them,” he said encouragingly. “Hm...we need to prepare then, right now,” she said. “Yes, but not here, someone could run into us,” he said. “Where do we go,” she said. “Home,” he said. “No! Amma would put us to all those chores again...” she said. “She dare not,” he said with a half-smile. “Hmm...” she said and they started walking towards the hut.


“She must have gone to get wood,” Aditya said, opening the latch on the hut when they reached. “We have exactly ninety-five minutes,” Aira said, hurriedly pulling out a mat in a corner. “Let us say we address them for fifteen minutes. We need twenty minutes to walk up there. We have exactly one hour to prepare.” she said, sitting down on the mat.

“Let's begin with the expectations you had set for them. You had displayed the gold coins and told them that you will tell them how to get them,” he said, kneeling down beside her and suppressing a chuckle. Aira gasped as she noticed his chuckle. “Now, what we want, is to ensure they give no trouble to amma once we are gone,” he said thoughtfully. “That means we need to address them satisfactorily. But there is no way I can lead them to any gold coins treasure!” she said worriedly. They thought for a long while. “I think we need to give them something abstract,” Aira said. “Abstract...yeah that would be Godly,” Aditya said nodding.


 “Okay, then... should we talk about some entrepreneurship ideas....and say that can lead them to riches,” said Aira. “Hmm....okay...but I am unsure we can think of anything that would be relevant here. We don't have the time to study this place,” he said. “Agree... let's make it a little more abstract then,” she said thinking.

They continued to brainstorm. Aira prepared a short clip to play, based on what they had finalized. “Perfect!” Aditya said as they did a run-through of what they had finalized. Aira sighed relief and stood up “We are just in time, let's make a move.” “I am sure this will work. This is abstract. This is convincingly Godly. This is meaningful. Whoever follows this would walk up to a great life. Excellent!” Aditya said visualizing as they walked towards the pond.
