“Gautham , stop that! It’s scaring her!”
“Here i come , the scary Mask Master to kidnap you ”
“Daddy Daddy i am scared ”
“Here i come , here i come”
She got up suddenly , my daughter. There was no terror in her eyes , only curiosity.
“Daddy isn’t it April 17th?”
“Yes honey! ”
“Why haven’t you gone to work?”
“Because today it’s a holiday , we have to vote!”
She smiled. Her big smile coming from her small face always left a pride in me.
“Go lazy Daddy , go vote for a better ( she pronounced it bitter 😛 ) India!” she nudged me and ran past.
I miss Innocence.
