“There is a lot of fog on the way. Still I shall try.” Said I.
I had no choice. If I didn’t reach my office before 10 o’clock, I would lose a day’s salary. I turned my bike around and started back to inform the check post. I could not go far. I had to turn back as the fog was too much that I could not see the road.
The Innova vala asked seeing me back, “Did you inform them?”
“No. I could not go. I have no fog light on my bike.” I showed my irritation.
Another half-an-hour passed. Now many have come out and started passing comments on what to do next.
‘It is better I try going once more. I can have a cup of hot tea too, which will warm me up.’ I thought. I turned my bike around for a second time and headed towards the check post.
The Sun was up and the fog had subsided. On the way I saw some vehicles hurrying past me. “Go, go. Go fast and wait there.” I told them in my mind.
There is a tea shop before the check post. I had started to shiver. "Better have the tea first." I thought and entered the tea shop.
