Sim sim

Prompt  ….
PHOTO PROMPT © Sarah Ann Hall

The Gods toss a coin each time a new one is born in the family of Nabobs-of-Tanakpur. Heads – the madness-gene is omitted (a more virulent version of Elizabeth Kolbert’s* madness-gene). The coin flipped tales when Nabob Ameeruddin ( Full name >30 words) was born.

The Nabob was offered an extremely high price for his collection of vases but he refused. The irked agent asked him the price at which he would sell.

5m US$ each!

What is so special about them?

They are full of gold mohurs. These vases belong to the original cache of Ali Baba.

Words <100
*The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History (chapter 12) by Elizabeth Kolbert.

Thanks for the prompt Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. SHALOM.

  1. Nabob might just be very wise and lucky instead of mad… I really enjoyed your tale this week, although the thought of gods tossing a coin in relation to inheriting madness or not is a little worrying.

    • Glad you enjoyed it.
      As for the toss of a coin …… with our present understanding inheritance of genes (good or bad) is just a flip of coin – who, what and how it is decided is still a mystery. The designer babies are far far in to the future.
      Thank you. 🙂

  2. We loved Ali Baba tales and hoped for getting one cave full of gold ourselves. Childhood revisited. There is so much, history, mythology fables in your box and also horror and mysteries. Love all stories.

I love arguments
