Suddenly, he saw something shimmering at a distance and a wise old man stepped in the temple. “Dear child, why are you disturbing God for such trivial matters? Tell me what is your problem and I shall see what I can do”
Chintu was in tears as he ran to the nearest temple and bowed his head in front of the almighty. “I am fed up of life God. I give up; I cannot change these stinking people. Please help me”, he cried. “These people are incorrigible.”
Chintu turned towards the old man and said, “I have tried everything. There’s nothing that you or anyone else can do. I need a miracle.”
“Humour me. Tell me what are your problems at least. God is right here.” he said pointing towards the idol, “He will listen to whatever you tell me.”
Chintu just sighed, “I hope you are patient enough to listen to my story”
The old man just smiled and Chintu poured his heart out.
“I live with 5 species of animals. Yes, you hear me right, they are animals, nobody who lives in such a filthy condition can be called human beings. The first day when I walked into the college, I remember wondering, “What’s that smell boss?”, but I ignored it. That was the first warning I ignored. After that there were many more, but I was too naïve to realize it back then. But now I am stuck with Smelly Sapiens, who are present in large numbers in the hostel I live….”
The old man just nodded and Chintu continued.
“I am going to tell you about them”

With this Chintu stopped speaking and looked up at the wise old man.
The old man stared at him for a while and finally spoke, “This is your problem?”
“Yes”, said Chintu bitterly, “This is the problem that I have had to live with for the past one year.”
The old man threw his head back and laughed and laughed and then laughed some more.
Finally, wiping tears off his face, he said one word, “Racold” and clicked his fingers twice. And lo and behold, there appeared a shiny white gadget with Racold inscribed on it.
“Do you know what this is?” The old man asked and Chintu just shook his head.
“This is Racold,” he replied as if that explained everything. Seeing the confused look on Chintu’s face he just flicked his hand and a giant screen appeared with…

The wise old man clapped twice and a small clip started playing
“You may leave Chintu,” the wise old man said and just vanished. Chintu looked around, rubbing his eyes checking if it was a dream, but he saw a shiny new Racold heater lying in front of him. He picked it up, vowing, to get rid of the Smelly Sapiens in the campus.
A fragrant breeze was blowing in the campus, even as the flowers swayed merrily. The birds had returned to their nests and were tweeting and chirping their heart out. The sun was shining brightly and small squirrels playing their own little game of Hide and Seek. And what about our hero, Chintu? Well, he was living happily ever after with Racold and his new found friends, Smelly Sapiens turned Homo Sapiens.
