It was a pleasant summer afternoon sunshine but was dreary,
All the inhabitants of that locality were tired after a tiring day,
All of us their got into a undersized “saadak” to go to our desired path,
It was like so so scorching hot that we would all jump into a swimming pool,
if we were given a chance at that occasion , as we were stuck in a traffic jam;
We all were at a place that was worse than hell, at that time due to the ambiance,
In all that confusion their was a small boy who was inside a huge animal sort of a thing,
that was like a huge elephant which required a huge space to move around,
It was like a matriarch of an elephant herd, which would not budge aside to allow the younger members of its herd to move ahead of it,
The traffic was a mess; at once it would seem to me that I was in a stampede of wild animals waiting to be crushed,
I pity the unfortunate lad who was caught in this traffic jam!
But we all have to witness what our fate has store for us,
And it was my misfortune that I was the boy caught in that stampede.
