Something Strange but Still Familiar

I was sitting with a water bucket on the tenth floor of my apartment in Delhi. The idea being if any kind of crackers does make it to my balcony, I can extinguish it with a cool shower of Delhi water. None turned up eventually...for a change this was strange.


As I was not that busy, I thought, let me look at this smoky Diwali city. I did. I found that there was traffic on road, all around people were busy either lighting up candles or having Diwali fun burning crackers. But it was quite in a non-familiar way. There were more crackers this year than the last, so I thought Delhi had more money to spare. I did ... simply because the city had just successfully concluded the Commonwealth Games.

In a still familiar way, the crackers took to some spirits as the clock moved towards midnight. I thought that as the Diwali gambling was coming to an end...it was time for businessmen to get on with their crackling ways. It continued well-passed mid-night. I was cosy in my bed by then ...but the so…
