Read : Police Calling

The yellow kerosene canister was distracting Shalini.

Why is this can in a police station?”

She was aware that the inspector was waiting for an answer. But she was not sure why the inspector had called her into the station.

Something happened to Shyam? Why Sailen is not here? It was his party! Shalini was not even ther!


Shyam, Shyam, are you up?

Sailen, hush! Everyone will wake up” Shalini, cautioned, “I will also come.”

Shyam and Sailen and sixteen year old Shalini were friends. Summer mornings were for aimless loitering, stealing fruits and watching the morning train pass by.

Shalini ji, I am waiting for your answer,” inspector’s voice brought Shalini back to present. She was not sure, if Sailen, Shyam and herself were still friends or simply wearing masks of friendship! Not after what happened recently. Should she reveal her personal life to a police officer? Why? Should she not have a lawyer?
