The Footprint

Fresh news! Find out what scientists have to say about the mysterious big foot, shouted the newspaper boy. The little village had become a hotbed of bustling activity with the discovery of a huge footprint at the nearby deserted island, attracting both- tourists as well as scientists who pitched various theories about its existence.

Whose footprint was it? No one knew. It all started when a group of bewildered picnickers found it and spread the news. Soon, there was a scramble with packed boats going to and fro.


At the other end of the island, an illegal woodcutter sighed, he never wanted such a crowd. Now he couldn’t cut trees on the island, he picked up his weird-shaped  toolbox and went searching for another job.
