Afternoon while crossing the bridge…
Inside school premises (there is a school next to hostel compound)
- A bunch of students here and there discussing about the question paper
- Few students weeping, some dull faces, some bright and smiling
Outside school premises
- A bunch of parents waiting in front of the main gate
As I walked on watching the anxious-looking fathers, a precious memory trickled through me, of my father doing the same action 6 years ago. I was taking 12th Public exam then and he used to wait for me in front of the gate. In the future, I might take up the role of my father. Indeed, in the end, life comes around to a neat circle, no matter how zig-zag it seems.
