ME,THE BHOPALI POLICE AND MY FRIENDS
Last evening i had a get together with one of my best friends of my college life. we planned to go to a dam near by our city so that we could relish some old moments and share whats new happening in our lives.As we were hungry,We visited a roadside chinese stall and filled our stomach with tasty and yummy veg noodles and manchurian.We then started our journey and within 20 minutes, we reached our destination.The sky was going dark, we could see the beautiful sight of the sunset.The waters around us was so still,so peaceful.We could sense that our beautiful city was going to take rest.
We searched and found a suitable place for ourselves, so that we could sit and talk at peace.Our talks begin and we talked about marijuana, our college life, girls and our Future plans.Peaceful water around and the company of friends, the evening was getting quite beautiful. After a long time, i felt free of stress.One of my friend said, guys we are lacking something. We asked,"What". He said, don't you think," we should have some beer".As the Lent season was going on, i said a straightforward no. No guys,not now. we will plan some other day. They just nodded and then once again, we continued our talks.
And then the unexpected happen, we saw two policemen coming towards us. We thought, they won't bother us. We were wrong, they came towards us and asked how you guys are sitting here. We said, sir just came here to talk. He said oh, just to talk. He ordered his subordinate, Search them and search them thoroughly. He searched and smelled us, if in case we were drunk.after a thorough search, He asked us, you 3 must come with me to the police station, right now. Shocked and puzzled, we asked, why what did we do ? Neither we are drunk nor do we have something illegal. He said, "you guys are sitting at the wrong place at the wrong time and as the Election code of conduct is going on, people cannot roam around in groups and this place is restricted". So you guys, move on, don't waste time. We understood what he actually needed was money, nothing else. We quickly acted innocent, and with decency in our voice, oh sir we were not knowing, this place is restricted. actually we are not localites sir.
He looked at us with a puzzled look. In the meanwhile, his subordinate caught hold of a couple, finally they caught someone from whom they could earn something. We were of no use to them as we were neither drunk nor were we carrying something illegal, there was not a slight chance of robbing us. So we politely asked, Sir can we go. He just nodded and we went our way.
THE LENT SEASON SAVED US. Thanks be to the LORD.Amen
