a candle


Mohan's wife Sheela  was down with dengue. She was admitted  in a government hospital. She was discharged  after a week's stay Mohan hired an auto to take her  home, which  was thirty kilometres from the hospital. They travelled hardly ten kms. when the auto broke down. inspite of great efforts  the auto did not start. There was  no alternative except to walk. The couple walked but their house was quite far. Sheela could hardly walk.  He made Sheela lie down. Suddenly Mohan could see a dim light at a distance. It raised some hope in his mind. As he came nearer he knew it was a candle. He kept moving till he reached the place from where the candle was burning. He stood outside for a few minutes, before seeking help. There seemed to be four people inside. Perhaps they were dacoits and had also kidnapped a   person.  He saw three motor bikes .  All the three had the keys hanging. Mohan did not start the bike but pushed it to some distance, before he drove it. He made his sick wife sit on the bike and vanished.  After reaching home, he surrendered the bike at the police station and also   informed them about the men in the jungle.  A valid proof was available in the  bike.
