Radha gets some vegetables and puts them in the fridge. The next day when she opens the fridge, she screams ‘GHOST’. Listening to Radha’s scream, her husband enquires what happened. On being asked, she tells him that the ghost is in the fridge. She explains that the gourd has been possessed by a ghost seeing the little gourd she had bought became much bigger in size. By now, the neighbours also enquire and while she explains, one of the neighbours laughs and tells her nowadays the vegetables are adulterated and are being injected with oxytocin to make them bigger and that this gourd had reached the market much earlier.
