Just For A Kiss…

(A Mini Story)

 A Mini Story by Sandeep Aikkara written in Malayalam

Translated by Philip V Ariel



Yes, he was not a Man prostitute…

​But still he bargained for a kiss!

“No, this much amount we can’t give you!”

 They firmly said!

“No, don’t say it like that, I may not be able to continue my job hereafter!”

​“If I do this, sometimes I may even go into deep poverty!”

“You must give the money I asked for!”

Oh, this much money just for a kiss?

 There was no other way, but they agreed!

Everything went according to his plan.

That Kiss, in fact, for them is a priceless one!

A​t last they succumbed to his demand.




​“Not now!​”

After supper come to the front courtyard,  just outside the dinning hall.


“Not now, not because we don’t believe you, but at present we don’t have it!”

Gently rubbing his beard, he said

“Give me the money in the night itself.”​

He is not a man prostitute…

But, still he may be the first person who  charged such a huge price just for a kiss.

He just counted the money in the moonlight.

Yes, exactly the full amount.

Thirty pieces of silver!!!

The Price Of A Kiss!

    You made an interesting twist to the short story. In the beginning reader’s don’t get an idea of what you are mentioning there. Hoping to see more and more good works from Sandeep soon.

    • Hi Reji,
      Thanks a lot for your valuable time and the insightful feedback.
      Yes, in the beginning, surely the readers will think the writer is going to tell yet another love story, :-) but only in the concluding part the readers will get the clear picture. :-)
      Though it’s a mini story that is the ability of the writer to pull on his readers to stay on the page to read the full story. :-)
      Sandeep did that wonderfully in this story.
      Thanks again for dropping by.
      Have Happy weekend
      ~ Philip

    Hi Philip,

    You have translated quite a deep story. On the surface, the story appears quite superficial but when it takes an unexpected turn, I had to respect the literary genius of the writer.

    Nice work you’ve done with the translation… though I do not understand the original language, I can clearly see that the English here flows perfectly.

    Do enjoy the day.
