the god of fire

The God of fire It took him twenty years to write his novel. Twenty refusals later he gave the manuscript to the fire which greedily absorbed it. A phone call from nowhere, send us another novel. It took twenty more years to write a new book and the god Agni burnt his hands. As a thank you. Success at last he cried to a man with a yellow helmet carrying an axe.
