A daydreamer. An innocent fool. A simpleton.A fakir. Sheikh was all this and more. So whether it was believing that a watermelon was a horse’s egg, dreaming that he was a mouse and was being chased all over the village by a cat, or tricking the miserly kazi into paying him a year’s salary, Sheikh Chilli’s sometimes foolish and often laughable antics have made him a favourite with generations of children.
