An extract from OV Vijayan’s Khasakkinte Ithihasam (The Legends
of Khasak)

Scribbled in tar across the red was this legend: “Koomankavu Beedi
Workers‟ Union”. Seven of Attar‟s -workmen joined the Union. These
men gathered at odd places, secretive and wise; partisans from Palghat
town came to them and read out dim prophecies.
They said “__ X __ _______ ________ .”
„Do you know what a X is?” the ideologues asked the beedi-rollers.
„We know, comrades,‟ Koomankavu‟s new proletarians replied. „We
have djinns and poothams here.‟
Fill in the blanks to get a famous opening line that would
resonate well with the group above?
“They said „A Spectre was haunting Europe‟”
  opening lines of the Communist Manifesto
