An ephemeral flash back
The tranquil 'main beach' (name of the locality) area took me nine years back as the memories of the ferocious Bay of Bengal at Konark in Orissa flashed by...from left to right, Unmukt (cousin), Myself, Tanmay (cousin) and Sudhanshu (bro)...Tanmay, who had just appeared for his 12th Board Exams then, has a job in Texas today...Unmukt and Sudhanshu are in Pune gearing up for probable management/media careers (God willing)...That kid in the background was a 'footwear fetcher'.Actually, the sea there is quite violent and if one is not careful enough, footwear is the first thing he or she looses. And these kids charged Rs.10 for getting it back!
I was conscious of the job at hand and headed back soon to get organized for the competition.
