Mashal..

Electricity is a very esteemed guest where I live( if you know what I mean 😜) But yesterday it was not at my home. It was pitch dark in the entire colony and as usual I was awake. I thought of an adventure, to try to scare my Amma who usually by that time of night would be fast asleep. 

I took my flashlight and with soft steps came down the stairs towards my parents room. 

As I was reaching there, my Amma in a sarcastic tone said, ” Yeh Mashal leke kahan ghum rha hai.” And I was, ” kuch nhi Amma, pani lene aya tha.” Only if there was electricity she would have known that she had just buried her son alive. 

Why. Just why Amma…
