VT railway platform Reminiscent of flight of populations From one geography to another During a famine or a pandemic A "surrendered" crowd...

My seat is already occupied... I'm allowed to sit somewhere... People are leaving Mumbai... The young man opposite me Abruptly Started a conversation He was talking my language "Look...look..." said he Pointing to a boy of 6 or 7 And his young mother Quickly, I could stop his further comments! Lest the jhagada escalates.. Fear... Attention focused on the 7 year old Cute...In new dress... But, a scared look... After feeding the boy Some bread and biscuits Mother settled down...

The same way we kill, A goat? Mom had no ready answer. She said: "Tomorrow, we'll go to Kerala" Batchmates* One day a Colonel Saab from the Army, fell into a well. The soldiers would throw a rope into the well and pull the Colonel Saab out. The moment the Colonel would come up, the soldiers would leave the rope snap to attention and salute. The Colonel Saab would fall back into the well. This happened many times. Someone suggested that a Brigadier be requested for help-because HE wouldn't have to salute the Colonel. So one Brigadier Saab arrived. He threw the rope into the well and the Colonel Saab gabbed it. The Brigadier Saab began pulling the rope. As soon as the Colonel Saab reached the top of the well, he spotted the Brigadier Saab. He immediately left the rope and saluted. And he fell back once more, into the well. There was total silence. Then everyone heard the desperate Colonel Saab's voice from down below *"You idiots - get hold of a batch mate !!"* MORAL OF THE STORY: Batchmates ARE important ! They can save your life! (Dedicated to all batchmates) *Forward received from Dr T V Surendran, Mananthavady
