brother type rescues 2 females from top floor flat of shady boy. has to climb up the building over complicated roofs and parapets (india, shabby flats..built really close together) and walk on top of compound walls like a tightrope walker. weird that he didnt just climp up the stairs like a normal person. because after he rescued them, they walk down like normal people. but the building is buzzing with the story of his superhero like climb.
boy (me) finds old comic book in the library with an old map of the city inside it. pornographic comic book? anyway it has some warped element. and a message to go to this place and show it to them and get it exchanged. the spot is an old hospital, now being used as an examination centre. the person in charge is ranjini miss (ergh why am i still dreaming about her?) and i show her the book and she studies it, then steps behind curtain and gives me a brand new asterix instead (hardbound, asterix and the gauls or something?)
somehow the comic quest is linked to finding a tiger... somehow get tiger to trust me in battle against a mangy yak, then take tiger and progress up this building... and the people who already live there are all, who are you? and im being all arrogant and la la la.. and just go prancing to the top floor where theres this old circus lion and its keeper..and they're all laughing, because they think the lion's going to eat me (the tiger is invisible for the moment?) so yeah..the lion lunges at me and i knife it...and then the tiger (a nice well fed tiger, so almost double the size of the lion) takes a big bite into the neck of the lion to immobilise it and then swallows it whole.
and im the king of the building. *shrug*
