SECTION : C RAPID READING AND COMPOSITION.

Q. 5. A. Read the following extract and rewrite it from the point of view of O.W. Harrison:

[You may begin with: My appeal was dismissed by the Chief Justice and Mr. Justice Scoope ..............]

The Chief Justice and Mr Justice Scoope have dismissed the appeal of O W Harrison, who was charged with the murder of Mr W P Elder in July and confirmed the sentence of death passed on him by the Sessions Judge of Manbhun.

"Nothing to do with our skeleton, of course, because Mr Elder was buried at Jamshedpur, while Harrison occupies an unknown grave. And in any case our skeleton is a woman's. But I remember the case. Harrison was having an affair with Mr Elder's wife. When confronted by the outraged husband, Harrison took out his revolver and shot the poor man. All very sordid. No mystery there for you. Concentrate on your studies. Second term exams must be near. I am sending you a parcel of socks. I know they don't last very long on you."

Two weeks later, I wrote: "Dear Mum, Thanks for the socks. But I wish you had sent me a food parcel instead. How about some guava cheese? And some mango pickle. They don't give us pickle in school. Headmaster's wife says it heats the blood.

"About that skeleton. If a dead body was hidden in that cupboard after 1930 - must have been, if the newspapers of that year were under the skeleton - it must have been someone who disappeared around that time or a little later. Must have been before Tirloki joined the hotel, or he'd remember. What about the hotel registers - would they give us a clue?"

Ans. My appeal was dismissed by the Chief Justice and Mr. Justice Scoope. I was charged with the murder of Mr. W.P. Elder in July and death sentence passed by the Session Judge of Manbhun was confirmed.

My story was being discussed by a lady and her son. She told him that the Skeleton found in the unknown cupboard could not be that of Mr. Elder as he was buried in Jamshedpur, while I was occupying an unknown grave. Furthermore: she said that their Skeleton was that of a woman. However, she remembered my case and told her son that I was having an affair with Mr. Elder’s wife and when I was confronted by the outraged husband I took out my revolver and shot the poor man. What a memory she had!

Two weeks later the boy wrote to his mother thanking her for the socks as his didn’t last very long. She had sent him a food parcel instead. Young boys, I know are always hungry. He asked her to sent some guava cheese or mango pickle since they didn’t get pickle at the school. The headmaster’s wife thought it added  heat  to the body.

The boy was always fond of mystery and went back to the story of the skeleton and had his own theories. He told his mother that if a dead body was hidden in that cupboard after 1930 - for the newspapers under the skeleton were of that year, then it must have been of someone who had disappeared around that time. In fact, he added, it must have been before Triloki joined the hotel or he would have remembered. He inquired about the hotel registers and if they would provide a clue. To my mind, he seemed determined to solve the case of the nameless skeleton.
