Life in a Metro.

Life in a Metro

 

Maa tells me this when ever she reads a news item about someone getting mugged and beaten to death on lonely Bangalore road at night

Avoid going outside late nights and in lonely places.

Maa tells me this when ever there is a terrorist attack anywhere:

Avoid going to crowded places.

When I point this out to her or when she reads about horrowing house theft stories in paper she tells:

It’s nowhere safe anymore. Only way out is to return to our village to live peacefully again.

 

I think she is right. But we are not returning to our village either.
