it was dark, very dark, they peeped out… the only ray of hope they could see was straining through the banana tree..Moon shone even when it wasn’t a full moon day.
Children were happy.. at least they won’t have to study for a few hours now.. they knew the timing- it was load shedding.
They conspired of sneaking out.. just then mom came in with a few candles in her hands.. ‘Two for every room, she said, and two each on your tables.. finish what you started’. They were not very happy hearing this as the planning had begun long before the scheduled power cut. But they seemed determined. Not much of home work was left and with the duration of light out they will still have enough time to play hide and seek( playing it in the dark was even more fun)…
