बचपन

सामने जो एक नाला है ना, गिर नहीं जाना उसमें, ठीक?

गिरने से क्या होगा?

अरे! गिरने से क्या होगा? एक हज़ार नौ सौ छिपकलियाँ एक के बाद एक नाले के कीचड़ से निकलेंगी, फिर पानी में तैरकर तुम्हारे ऊपर चढ़कर आस्ते आस्ते तुम्हारे मुंह तक पहुंचकर अपने तेज़ नुकीले दाँतों से ... चीखो मत!

मुझे घर जाना है।

क्या? क्यूँ?

मुझे घर जाना है!

पर घर तो नाले के उस पार है।






From ever so long ago. Horrible kid I must've been.

P.S.- Give both me and yourself credit. I just read through a Hindi post.

I'm shocked to realise that I have nearly forgotten how to read Hindi. And to think 10 years of that torture would have at least some sort of scarring after-effect...

Actuallt, now I am convinced you're the sinister monster watching ever so gently over the Tinies.
