ഓട്ട വേലു ഞങ്ങളുടെ നാടിന്റെ അഭിമാനം അഥവാ ഓട്ടക്കാരന് വേലുവിന്റെ കഥ – A Short Story
A short story written a few years back on the pages of Philipscom ( Ariel’s Jottings/Malayalam)
I am so glad to post it here the updated version of the story summary in English too.

The story in nutshell:
It is a story of a villager named Velu, who diligently works for his family.
Though the main character in the story is a genuine person who works consistently for the family, his wife was not that cooperative with him.
But it’s interesting to note that he never showed any displeasure on such attitude of his wife, instead he very genuinely loved her.
Velu commonly known or called as Otta Velu. Infact he was literally a Running Velu (the name given by the villagers because of his disciplinary life in relation to his family as well as his work) infact , he finishes everything in running speed.
His daily life starts with a lot of morning choruses.
The sugar factory’s syron at 4 O’clock helps him to get up in the morning and his day starts from there.
His daily choruses start with that and ends in the night at 11 O’clock.
Before going to the factory he finishes all his household duties with a sportsman spirit or literally running all the time to complete his task.
Yes, most of the time to complete these choruses he literally runs and finishes.
In short, this routine running job made him a wonderful runner and ultimately that helped him to procure the highest sports award at the international level.
The story also narrates different phases he underwent to reach the highest award winner from our village.
Otta Velu’s wonderful activities made our village proud and hitherto less known village become famous by Velu’s name.
The story ends with a bit of confusion, as the village people formed a committee and decided to honor Velu for his amazing feat. They called a meeting to honor him with a trophy.
Everything arranged by the villagers and the day has come, but unfortunately, at the venue at the nick of the time, Velu was missing and the committee members of the function worried and started running towards Velu’s house and other places in search of Velu. But they couldn’t find him anywhere. But, to the surprise of all Velu landed at the venue at the right time and the award ceremony went on well.
In the end of the function, the press reporters approached Velu and enquired for the late arrival. For this he sai, dear Sirs, I am not late instead I am on time here for the function and then he narrated his daily activities.
Hearing his story the people around and the press reporters baffled and looked at each other.
And in a short span of time, he looked at his watch and moved fast from the crowd by carrying the big trophy on his shoulder.
Seeing this activity the people stunned and looked at each other. That was Otta Velu.
