Calling King Solomon

Hey re kanhaiya
Kisko kahega tu maiya
Ek ne tujhko janam diya re
Ek ne tujhko paala
I remembered these lines when I heard of the interesting tussle now panning out in our housing complex.
TK, an Udipi restauranter and a neighbour, had planted a few coconut samplings in our compound some time back.
The trees are now bearing fruit.
“Nobody will touch the coconuts,” TK has spread the word around. “I will offer the first nuts to our family deity.”
But GS, our head of security, does not agree.
“I agree that he planted the trees but it was I who watered them daily and looked after them,” he argues. “So I have the first right to the first crop.”
Who will play King Solomon?
