Standing alone in the park Animesh was feeling more chilly than it actually was . He was lost in his thoughts. He still couldn’t believe the way Raka behaved with him . It all seemed like a traumatic nightmare and every moment he was expecting that he would get up to discover that he was actually sleeping . But it was harsh reality and Animesh was feeling as gloomy as the approaching evening. The fog was enveloping his mind along with the surrounding. Suddenly he heard crisp , steady footsteps behind him and in no time four policemen stopped his way..a lady officer being their leader.
” Get him” she shouted .
Animesh stood perplexed. One of the men brought out a shabby photograph from his pocket and murmured ” Aquiline nose , big gloomy eyes and an unclean stubble . HE is our man ”
” What’s going on ?” Animesh realized its time to act or it would be too late .
” Nothing. Only that we are here to bring you back to where you belong..the asylum ”
Animesh gaped ! ” me !!! asylum ? lu..lu..”
The lady officer cut him short , ” you can go to loo once we return to the asylum..understood..you moron ? ”
“Uhh ! not loo ma’am , I’m trying to say that I’m not a lunatic ..”
” Yes , we know… every lunatic claims the same . Your unshaven and unclean stubble is speaking for you ! It seems you’ve not taken a bath for days .. I hate that unclean stubble “. She hissed .
” Look , I’m Animesh Gupta , I work for a reputed IT company. Here’s my ID card and driving license”
The officer looked puzzled. She examined the papers and said ” I see, sorry for the inconvenience caused but you’re responsible for that also. Go and have a clean shave otherwise you look exactly like this runaway lunatic we’re searching for. ”
Animesh understood . Stubble was the source of all his troubles.
