This summer he had planned to take a vacation. Inspector Aditya Sharma was looking intently at the brochure of the holiday resort. “Price looks affordable, I wish I could go” thought Sharma, “but this job with police department is like a boa constrictor, it does not let you go once it has you in her embrace.”
This case of Shyam’s suicide has landed on his desk. “Aditya this is your age to work. Vacation can happen,” his boss had tried to reason with a reluctant Aditya, “now is time to work hard and move up the career ladder.” Aditya Sharma knew better than to show his disagreement. “Certainly sir,” cursing under his breath Aditya said, “I shall be on the job, sir.”
First item on his day’s agenda was to talk to spritual leader, guru ji. He was not sure what was he to achieve by the meeting. So far inspector Sharma did not make much headway. He wanted to close the case as suicide and take his vacation. But something in his mind prodded, there may be more to the case.
Heaving a sigh of relief, Sharma pulled the case file.
