with all good intentions, i was awake a bit late last night. around 1.30 am i heard a slight noise, and few seconds later, between the closed curtains, saw a hand clasing my windowpane. ah! thats a robber, or its ravi ( the child labourer who works for my uncle) or it is my cousins trying to scare/fool me, or one of the drivers/workers from a nearby travel agency trying to get lucky with me. there is just me and my friend's laptop at home. well, the last one feaked me out of my skin, more than the robber stealing the laptop.
the series of events that followed-
-i called my aunt who lives downstairs
-she didnt even pick up the call
-she calls back after 2 minutes
-i tell her about the robber
-she panics... "are you scared, baby?" " you want to come and sleep with me, child?"
-finally... uncle comes out
-flashes his torch all over the building
-nobody found for obvious reasons
-he tells me to go to sleep, because i can see he felt sleepy
-i turn on all the lights at home
- i go back to studies and actually do stuff for another hours before turning off the lights
- i wake up this morning, bright and fresh, to see me and the laptop as safe as ever. :)
PS: i label this post "bangalore police" to say that there a lack of adequate security in my neighbourhood. what are the police doing, when people are getting robbed?????
