The walk.

She looked at her watch, it wasn’t too late. Evening fell with its usual camaraderie. Prayers being offered in rows at a mosque, always a fascination. An eagerness to peep in and observe the activities. A stray child walking around. Traffic on the streets, cars in a hurry to reach their destination. Kids from the nearby slum running around on the path. The paanwala playing his radio, the tea shop owner frying singharas., the puchkawala doing brisk business. A burst of activity everywhere. People returning home from work, duties and responsibilities. A few short steps, towards the crossing and home would be here. She quickened her pace knowing its all but a short distance now, two buildings to cross. An empty taxi parked halfway on the footpath.
‘Tu hi meri shab hai…’ suddenly he crooned. Best to ignore, she told herself. Walking further, crossing through the narrow space between the taxi and the building wall..she heard steps behind her quicken. Turned around slightly, but kept walking. Her lane was empty, very few people,some cars passing by. Dressed in black and and fake denims, she didn’t see his face. She quickened her pace suddeny, to avoid anymore crooning. He quickened his pace too. Another building..and then you’re home-she said to herself. She walked even more faster, knowing that she was almost being followed, stalked. There! its here, she rushed into the building. The steps behind her waiting in front of the building. She turned around while climbing the stairs, to briefly see a pair of eyes staring at her. Its not the stare that scared her. Its the intentions.

  2. It sounded scary sups! These kinda ppl are all around.. can\’t do anything abt it.. can jst be a bit more careful and alert!

  3. ok here comes the most idiotic question from who else….
    "was tat u????" or again one of the \’may-be\’ cases?? but eitherways .. i agree, they are dangerous…
    pepper spray, stunner, or plain ol mirchi.. watever.. be safe!
    and btw… pls don ask for AC… we already have a power crisis!!! 😛

  4. Hey Sups….
    U dont seem like the daunted kind, if something goes wrong, which it wont i am sure, just pack tht punch or scream bloody murder! ofcourse the pepper sprays always help…..get a brother or a guy friend and flaunt him as boyfriend type for a few days…..things will calm down……Some men put the pigs to shame too……creeps.
    And then ofcourse The Falcon has graciously escapes fro the maximum security prison just to kick this bottom dweller\’s arse, eh? ; ) You should be alright.
    Take care…..head up, alert……….look up young person… = )
    So glad u like the song so much……..will pakka send it to you today…. = )
    as the pixie is missing, take a couple of hershey kisses from me…..everyone needs em, right? ; ): ) mwah\’s
    take cares now…..

  5. ppl all around are frustrated, and as someone rightly said – losers. These are nothing but loser\’s plight. The best thing that I feel is not be scared. Take evasive action – alright, but dont show that u r scared. A mind game? If the hunter feels the hunted is afraid, its confidence increases; on the other hand if it knows that the supposedly hunted can standup and has courage to fight back, they are the one who usually becomes afraid. Be in your safe zone and then stand back… dont worry about those cowards!

    Umrikka? Are its not only there… it will soon be canda and lots of other places too!
    about being womaniser – I too didnt knew, but thts what some ppl feels I am… so may be from the neutral perspective, I am! Scary? really?

  6. sorry for what happend . . . .
    keep those things wid u na . . . red mirchi powder . . . and tear spray . . .   can be usefull . .. . . .  !!
    be carefull . . .
    read sum comments by gals . .  "men are losers" . . " guys are all cheats" . . . . .
    and sum one  once told me . .  ( a gal ofcourse )
    "Life is a bitch and men are dogs . .. "
    but if there is one to harm ur dignity . .  there will be many willing to fight to save you . . . .
    Take Care God Bless YOu
