That hand appeared in front of him suddenly.It was not a request, nor a plea. it was just a hand which expected him to hold it and help. Bhavesh looked at the face of the lady who lent her hand to him. she was around 40-45. There was a childlike expression and weird eye motion. Bhavesh kept guessing if she were blind. He kept thinking while another person took the lady's hand and made her sit on a nearby bench. To bhavesh's surprise, there was no complain for his seemingly rude behaviour.
Bhavesh used to come for jog every morning to shivaji park. Today it was raining heavily and for the first time he took shelter in a gym, located in a corner of the shivaji park. Normally, he loves to get drenched in Mumbai rains. But today, he just didn't want to get wet for no obvious reasons.That lady probably came there as well to avoid rain. He gave a look at the lady again. She was not blind, but looked like mentally challanged now. Bhavesh also noticed the addidas shoes she was wearing along with her Saree.
It was still raining really heavily and Bhavesh just wanted this rain to get over.Suddenly a boy around 7-8 yrs old came there shouting, probably for the lady. Lady got up and started waving at him furiously, again in a very childlike manner. The boy had a white Maruti Omni behind him. It was around 20meters away. That lady was in a hurry and took the hand of the person who helped her earlier and almost ran towards the boy. Bhavesh started moving to give way to that lady, suddenly the hand appeared again and this time Bhavesh couldn't refuse. Soon he was holding the other hand of the lady and was taking her to the boy. Once he reached near the Omni, other person took control and made the lady sit in the car while bhavesh kept looking from a distance. The Man also had a chat with person who was driving the Omni. After having a brief chat, The Omni started moving and in a minute it disappeared.
That man walked towards the gym again where he noticed that Bhavesh was still there. He came near Bhavesh and before he could utter a word, his eyes and expression said that these ladies need our pity and we have to help them, they are so dependent. Before he could speak the same words from his lips, Bhavesh's eyes gave him an angry look and person left without saying a word.
Soon, Bhavesh was moving back his home as he realized he was too drenched now.
