Timeless Words

Boy playing soccer gdj

‘Hema, where is Raju? We don’t see him these days. Is all okay?’

‘He is doing fine, Vidya. It’s just that he is unable to go out to play.’

‘Why so? You said he is fine.’

‘You remember three months ago, he was lost not knowing his way back home?’

‘Yes, I do. Luckily no harm was done.‘

‘Thanks to WhatsApp. We had sent out a message with his photo. A good Samaritan had seen it and finding Raju all alone in the park he was good enough to bring the kid back.’

‘Truly, technology has its advantages. And our belief in humanity vindicated. Surely Raju now knows his way to the park and back.’

‘Yes, he does now.‘

‘So why are you not letting him go out and play with other kids?

‘That’s not it.’

‘Then?’

‘Every time he goes out, some chap getting our message and spotting Raju ‘helpfully’ brings him back here, sometimes, kicking and screaming.’

‘Uh-Oh.’
