by Anushka Ravishankar and Kanyika Kini

"Pandurang, the fruit-seller, is so dour that he can make milk turn sour. One day he coughs up a feather. As the story of Pandurang's feather is passed from one person to another, it grows and grows until it can hardly be recognized. And that's when the story weaves its magic on the ill-tempered Pandurang. An international verson of 'broken telephone, ' The Rumor is a funny cautionary tale about the nature of rumors"--Publisher description
