I was polishing shoes.
He called me from his car.
“Drop this box in the garbage bin yonder and take these 100 rupees,” he said
”I will break your head. Do it now,” he threatened.
I stealthily dropped it in his car even as I proceeded towards garbage bin
“BOOM”. The car was ablaze.
My family was away.
I found her when strolling in the mall. Tall, shapely and attractive, she was.
I took her home. What a pleasant surprise it would be I thought even as I laid her on bed.
I gingerly caressed her soft hair.
It’s my first gift of Barbie doll for my young daughter.
I was sitting on the bench at the park.
When a small dog snuggled my feet, I patted it gently
Wagging its tail, it romped on the side walk happily.
A man on cycle foolishly crushed the puppy.
Struck with remorse, he thrust 500 rupees.
I genuinely pitied the street dog.
4.A night at a motel
It was midnight
“No vacancy” said the motel clerk.
I pointed to hanging key at the corner.
“Give me the key, I have no place to go”
“You will regret”
As I inserted key, I heard “It is my room. I live here for ages”
An icy cold hand tapped me from behind.
“I have unbearable pain below right abdomen ”.
After examination the physician asked “Have you made your will?”
Shocked, I asked “Is it life threatening?”
“It is minor surgery,” I said
Yes, minor for most but not for Dr Rajan, the only surgeon available”
“He failed in anatomy thrice scoring single digit marks"
