Roshan was posted in an export company in Ahmedabad as Finance Head. He was to visit his company branch at Mathura and stay there for about one month. His parents advised him to stay with his uncle there.
Roshan reached his uncle’s residence at Mathura two days later. He was given a hearty welcome. Apart from his uncle, his cousin and sister in law were also there. Everything was normal for a few days until one day, his uncle chided him for buying some article from an unapproved shop. He failed to understand. His sister in law, Sarita, explained that they were devotees of ‘Huzoor Maharaj’ and living in the community of the sect headed by him. They could neither buy anything from others nor play loud music. They could also not eat non veg food or drink.
However, Roshan did not take this seriously. Roshan was only intending to stay for a month he decided and so there was little point in paying any heed to the advice he had been given.
Two days, later, his cousin left on a business tour and so he was left with his uncle and sister in law Sarita whom he believed to be but a simple Hindu housewife there to take care of his poorly uncle who was in need of personal care even for going to the bathroom. Roshan was particularly surprised when one day his uncle became sick with fever how Sarita helped her father in law to move to the bathroom where she could wash him without any of the shyness he had expected from his uncles Hindu daughter in law.
One evening Roshan came home drunk and was rebuked severely the following morning by Sarita for his breaking of the rules by which he was bound by customs of the sect. Roshan however trivialised the complain by stating the sect consisted of fools and that their leader Huzmoor Maharj was a cheat. This sufficed to anger Sarita who told him to behave himself or quit. As her point was made Sarita left the house to pick up needed supplies . Roshans uncle had told him not to underestimate Sarita and that any disobedience of the rules or disrespect would cause trouble but Roshan was determined to behave as he wished regardless.
As time went on, Roshan continued to disobey all rules. Constantly returning home drunk and aggressive the situation came to a head when a complaint was received by a neighbour. Sarita was extremely annoyed. She had decided to punish and publicly humiliate Roshan for his behaviour. Inviting some of her friends, all of which were young women in their thirties to her home, she asked Roshan to remove his clothes. Roshan was excited at the prospect of exposing his nudity to the ladies but soon found himself tied. Roshan was standing nude to the waist with his hands tied when Sarita asked one of her friends to remove Roshans trousers. Roshan was anxious. So far, this had been but a joke to him but now he was helpless. His trousers removed, he stood nude before the ladies who abusively mocked, teased and insulted him. Sarita decided that he should be spanked and so spanked him with her bare hands before her friends each took a turn spanking his bottom. One woman had brought a wooden paddle from her home and Roshan realised he was now going to be spanked with a wooden paddle.
For every offence, Sarita told Roshan, he would be receiving a spanking. The offences were listed and began to stack up ranging from insulting Huzoor Maharaj, buying from unauthorized shops, drinking and other misconduct. They would never spare anyone who insulted their religion. Sarita bagan spanking with paddle stopping only when tired to hand the paddle on to the next lady in the line. Roshan’s bottom became swollen and crimson red but his cries were in vain. The women were in no mood to spare him.
There were drops of blood on Roshan;’s buttocks when Sarita decided to stop spanking. But his requests for clothes were refused. He was instead to lie nude and would wear clothes only when called upon to fulfil his duty. Sarita also refused him permission to leave their house or to stay elsewhere. She would not let him off so easily.
Roshan had not yet understood his predicament. The next day when he left the house arranging to stay at a local hotel, he had not realised that this would cause him yet more trouble. He had still one week more at Mathura and had not been given permission to leave early.
Roshan had made some local friends. They all drank. Whilst drunk one evening, Roshan boasted that Huzoor Maharaj Sect was a corrupt cheat, that his sister in law, Sarita was an unchaste woman and that all in that sect fools. Unfortunately for Roshan however, an employee at the hotel who had overheard him was a member of the sect and reported his whereabouts and behaviour to his strict sister in law.
The sect was very powerful and the next morning, Roshan was still in an inebriated state. A few young persons appeared and asked him to accompany them. Who the hell are you he asked aggressively but received a hard slap to his face for his insolence. Soon he would meet the leader who simply greeted him with the words “Bastard! you will know” and he was dragged and forced into a vehicle which would carry him to the Huzoor Mahraj sect community hall. Soon, his uncle and sister in law also came. Sarita rebuked- Did I not tell you to mend your way? your blasphemy, misconduct and insult to his holiness Huzoor Maharaj will be severely punished. I cannot help even if I wish. Now you are culprit of the Community.
Roshan was captivated in a dark room. Next day, he was taken to a big hall. The head priest narrated misdeeds and sins of Roshan. He also announced that Roshan was to be spanked severely. The rule of the sect were that spanking and whipping would be administered by family members of the culprit. His uncle was sickly. His cousin was away and even if present would hesitate. Sarita came forward and said- I will spank Roshan and teach him lesson. Normally, only men could whip another man but Sarita was determined to use the whip herself. She also said that she wanted to teach the lesson as best as she could. There could be no way other than to spank his bare bottom in the room now filling with more men and women. The community head agreed. Roshan was made to undress fully. He was tied to a pillar. Sarita spanked his bottom with leather strap. When she was tired, next person spanked Roshan. Roshan cried bitterly but nobody sympathised. Even teenager girls spanked him. The gathering would laugh at his screams. His bottom was swollen and crimson red. The gathering were happy to give him an exemplary punishment.
