Wrong Place #SundayPhotoFiction


Let us go hiking in the mountains,” Raj and Madhu, avid hiker friends, were eager to try out their new tent they had acquired paying almost two months salary, “yes we must find out how does it feel to carry this feather weight tent.”

Remember our last trek, when our tent got wet in rain?” commented Madhu, “I had to carry weight of extra ten kilos on my gear?

It was getting dark. Friends were tired. They had trekked almost ten kilo meters that day. Pitching their tent on a ground outside the village, friends went to sleep.

““This place smells funny!” commented Madhu eager to make an early start, “Let us sleep it out,  we are tired and it is a matter of one night.

Friends woke up to muffled sound of human voices coming from around their tent. Coming out of their tent, they encountered a group of curious villagers with container of water.

Who are you?” asked one person, who appeared to be the leader, “why are you sleeping here?

Sahab, you spent the night here?” asked the surprised man after hearing the hikers, “this ground is used for disposing human waste!”
