    1. Thank you, T.Lee. I was hesitating before posting this video because it is just for an entertaining purpose and it has nothing to do with the English Language. Now you showed me a path. Let me try!!!

      The story starts from a prison where a policeman approached a prisoner who is on a death row and asked him what was his last wish. He gestured that he wants to put a clown make-up and die with a smile.

      Here the story starts…

      A Joker. A clown. I assume he is a speech-impaired (I was about to write dumb at first) and lost his parents in his childhood. He was raised by a circus owner. The boy loves to make people happy and smile especially the circus owner’s daughter who happened to be his childhood crush.

      One day, the circus owner sent her to abroad for her higher education. Years rolled on one by one, both of them grown up, he became a notable clown in that circus and she did her graduation and returned to India along with her love/fiancee.

      He got to know the fact that she forgot him totally. But he didn’t express anything and kept his love inside him.

      One day, he noticed that her boyfriend possessed a handgun. He tried to tell the circus owner, (the boss never paid attention to his sign language. He might have thought that he is crazy/the language is hard to follow.) But as usual, he didn’t listen to him and reminded him that the next show was going to be performed soon. So the clown decided to explain it later.

      The show went well, It was a rainy night, he tried to explain it to the girl, but she misunderstood him and slapped him. With that contrast reply, he went to that circus owner’s tent where he witnessed her boyfriend shot him dead.

      With a shock, the clown scuffled with him and tried to grab the gun away from him. By hearing the gun shot, the girl entered her father’s tent. When she stepped in, the gun explodes and the bullet went through her boyfriend’s body.

      Sadly, she thought that the clown killed both her father and boyfriend in order to get her. The police arrested the clown and sentenced his life to death.

      That country has a tit for tat judiciary system, so they make him sit in front of the girl and shoot him to death. :'(

      The END.

  1. Now I understand the video much better, Vasanth. You re-told the story very well. That is indeed a very sad tale of a “love from afar”.

    If someone can’t speak, we can call them “dumb” or “mute”. “Mute” is probably a better choice. So he was wrongly accused due to circumstantial evidence (appearances only; no eye-witness). I am surprised that they granted him his last wish. There is some consolation (slight joy) in that.

    Good use of “tit for tat”. For justice, we normally use “an eye for an eye”. But “tit for tat” has the same meaning. Good use of “scuffle”. For “notable”, we would say “renowned” or “famous”. Good use of “childhood crush”.

  2. Very nice story-telling, Vasanth.
    I enjoyed reading it even more than watching the video.
    Some corrections from me:

    the circus owner sent her to abroad for her higher education

    Years rolled on one by one, both of them grown up grew up…

    Thank you for a lovely story!
