After all the fuss, he didn’t budge. He didn’t want to create a scene there. He was still adamant. Tuffy looked notoriously at the cops for not taking any action against the beggars pushing him at the signal.
The signal was a long 180 seconds one. He was on his bike. It was 8 am. He reached the signal just when it turned red. He was immediately surrounded by 2 kids and a lady. They started pushing and asking him for money from either sides. He kept calling the policemen to check on his plight. They kept ignoring.
He broke the signal and went over to the cops who dutifully stopped him. They saw him pulling out his mobile phone. He moved away and called up Tantra who lived near the signal. She came running to the spot. The policemen kept asking for the fine. After hearing the entire story Tantra went towards a policeman and started patting him on his forearm. He moved away.
She kept doing the same. He yelled. She stared at him.
He assured of some sort of clarity on the issue. He informed that these beggars keep changing signals and are replaced by a set of new ones every week.
Tuffy left for office and Tantra went home. All of today seemed way too incomplete.
Look out. Let us not make a fool of ourselves. Money out of hard work should not be distributed freely when there is no point in the first place. Let the beggars not signal you. After all let’s not forget what happened to the baby which smoked.
