Like any story starts.. 😇
Once upon a time, there was an old woman who was running a home business of selling rice crackers. She was drying the crackers at her backyard but she needed more space due to increase in sales! “Supply on Demand” 🥳 So, she was relying on her terrace where she usually dries her clothes. She cleared up needed space and was ready to roll over the rice crackers! She was super excited about her project and was looking on ways to meet her business needs. She was quite satisfied with the number of rice crackers she made on day 1. Good performance! 🤷🏻♀️
She went down for her other chores. At lunch, She heard crows cawing, she felt it quite unusual, still didn’t mind and went on with her afternoon nap. 😴Around 3, she went upstairs to check and was shell shocked. There were only very few crackers remaining. She then connected it with the cawing.
She felt awful still she knew this is the best for her business, so Day 2, she decided to watch for crows and sat along but she was finding it difficult. The minute she went to attend nature’s call 🚽, she lost the battle! 😭
She was thinking about asking for some help, but was worried about their employment, commission etc. Typical business personality! 🤬
She was very determined to fix this issue though 😠
Day 3, She thought hard and decided to carry a stick and was holding it throughout the day. Again, “Nature’s call is something you cannot miss!”. When she had to take a break, she just left the stick and went down. She did hear lots of Caw Caw’s, still she had to complete her compelling tasks! When she was back, she realised none of the rice crackers were eaten. 😂
Whoa!! She was surprised, more than that, she was relieved 😌She was unsure what made the crows not eat? She looked around and there the stick caught her attention! It had one of her cloths (a Saree) swirled around it. Looked like the wind wanted to help her 💨
Ahh! It stuck her hard and realisation / idea arose 🧠To test if her idea works, she just left the same stick next day (Day 4) and waited until evening, she did hear lots of usual cawing, she wanted rush back to terrace but was strongly holding back!!
Yes, You guessed it right, Crows had just flown pass her terrace! They were scared and didn’t dare to eat. Hurray! She did it!! 👏 She started happily napping when the crackers were drying! Sooooooon…..
She decided to… start another business! 😉 She designed the stick to look more like a human that represented her. She draped her saree around and stuffed some cotton to give it a figure. Called it Project Scarecrow!
