The Son of Gupta
For all the competition in Mumbai's media circles, only Mid Day could have carried a headline that read: "46-yr-old demands ripe fruit, is punched". So what actually happened? The article says:
Manjula Katudia (46) was beaten up yesterday for something that every one of us routinely do. Insisting that a vendor sell her some ripe fruit.Outstandingly entertaining, even if inadvertently so.
The fruit seller who punched her, is the son of Gupta, president of the Vegetable and Fruit Seller’s Association, and is currently absconding. [Sic, sic, sic!]
