We were about half way from Gaurmukh. It was evening and rather dark. It was a small town. We enquired mode of transport for Gaurmukh. There was none. We went to the ticket counter. This time we asked very politely if there was any train scheduled now for Gaurmukh. Yes, the train was scheduled in next half an hour. But the seat was not available. We had to go for Tatkal booking. The ticket was for Rs 800 each. We could not afford it since the wallet was stolen that…

Dead Cat digging into the plant

I woke up at 8.00 in the morning and saw my father panting in the drawing room. He called all family members and said, “I am going to tell you something. Please listen carefully.” We all were surprised as generally father does not come panting inside drawing room.

Visit http://www.abhirajgupta.in/taking-kailashs-ashes-to-kailash-part1.html for Part-1   We met in the evening at 5. Piyush asked me, “Why don’t we steal ashes that must have been kept in the Urn. Otherwise ashes will be taken to Haridwar the next day”. I did not like the idea. I asked what would happen if we were caught stealing the urn. We would be ashamed in front of everyone- our parents, relatives, our neighbours. I just could not digest this idea. Now Piyush started. Obviously he was angry. One of his best friends was not present…

But his teacher and rather our teacher Mr. Mehra always bullied him. Not because he competed in story telling but he was not as good in studies as…
