LONELINESS It was 10'o clock. Rahul was alone at home. His parents had gone to a party, leaving the young alone. He was trying to sleep, but all attempts were in vain. He didn't know how to pass time. He connected the video game to the TV and began to play. But no sooner power failed. It was dark all around. Nothing was visible in this darkness. If his mother would be here, he would cry; but now he could do nothing. He just laid on the bed. At once it came a sound from the direction of kitchen. Rahul didn't know the reason for this sound. So he frightened. \"What is that\", he shouted. Then it came a loud scream. It seemed to be of a girl. But how could it be possible. There was no girl in the house. Of course there was a sister of Rahul but she was not at home. So what it could be? Eventually he observed light coming through window. It was a bulb glowing in neighboring house. At once he knew, “light hasn't gone, but somebody has turned the power switch off\". \"Oh great, there are thieves at home. For a long time I've not eaten any thief. Today I'll finish all my hunger\". This was a stratagem of a five year old boy fond of childish and meaningless action shows. This was thing what Rahulhad seen in cartoon shows. Rahul went towards the kitchen in darkness. There was no light to see anything. He heard a horrible sound which made Rahul to turn to the store room. He ran as faster as he could. When reached, he closed the door. As he tried to walk, he stepped over a rat. That noise made Rahul frightened. He involuntarily caught the axe placed at his right and attacked the rat with it to cut it down into two pieces. He opened the gate of the room gently and got out. In the darkness he saw a light in front of him. He went nearer to the light to survey what there was. In light he saw a bleeding face laughing, 'hain hain hain' and coming towards him. At once he got out of sleep he was having and shouted. He found himself in his own room. His mom and dad, hearing his scream, came to him. His mother asked him, ‘What happened son.\" Now he had gotten his consciousness. \"Nothing, ah......,nothing.\" “Were you having any dream.” “Yes, I think I was.” His father said, “Don’t worry son we are with you. Okay! Now you sleep with ease. Sweet dreams.”
