Kiran said: “There must have been someone. Perhaps the workers renovating the toilet day and night”
I said: “And that someone vanished in thin air in a jiffy. It can’t be!”
Bidisha said: “But madam, it is strange. The corridor was well lit. How could he see the reflection on the mirror from so far?”
Kiran said:”Where is Sompal? Why is he scaring us?”
Sompal said:” Kya madam! It really happened. Although I sit late I have never experienced such things. But my friend was new here and it happened to him.”
Life is not a canvas with black and white strokes alone. There are certain shady, shadowy zones of grey, the unknown and the uncharted ones. Choice is ours whether we believe in them or not, but what we cannot surely overlook is the fact that they are intriguing, mind boggling and sometimes nerve racking too. In this entire episode wherein the unknown fenced with the known, I and Bidisha were the worst hit who had to seek each other’s company to visit the washrooms or the dark and deserted nooks and corners of the office even during the busy work hours.
