one friday afternoon, bahadurabad chowrangi

 one friday afternoon, bahadurabad chowrangi

a four-year-old child 
curled under the shade
asleep by the shutters of a shop
a topi wearing shopkeeper
fiddling with the keys
kicked the sleeping child away
and told him to get lost 
in impolite language
the child still dazed
rubbed his eyes 
and looked around
finding his mother
begging in the sunlight 
at the passing cars 
he ran to her 
and hugged her
my mind wandered off
to our son, the same age
and wondered 
about cosmic justice
