In R. K. Narayan’s short story “A Horse and Two Goats” Muni indulged in the gossip that the local postman’s wife had eloped with someone else to the city a few months ago.
 
The shopkeeper had some kind of enmity with the postman as he had once cheated him. That is why he felt intense pleasure knowing something bad happened to the postman.
