Walking around his native village, Akhilesh was surprised to see the triangular structure. He was reminded of Egyptian pyramid. Who will build a pyramid like structure, in this day and age, in this part of the world and why?

 “What is that structure, made of loose stone, all about?” Akhilesh asked his father during eveining tea, “Why in our village?

Oh that! Old Choudhary has gone senile!” answered his father smiling, “ He watched a program on pyramids in the Discovery Channel. His desire to enjoy his afterlife was encouraged by his third wife; who advised him to go on his final journey with all his favorite things, including his television.

What nonsense!” commented Akhilesh, “Choudhury will be cremated won’t he?

He is discussing terms of conversion with a cleric and a padre,” answered his father, “he would settle for the best offer.”

Village council allowing, this bizarre thing to happen?

If you have money, things can be arranged,” answered his father, “beside the head of village council is having an affair with Choudhury’s wife; critics say, television, discovery channel, and pyramid were all her idea. Embalming of body is also being contracted out to her brother.
