I left my home for an interview in a hired taxi. Unfortunately, it broke down on the way. The driver could not restart it.

The fear of missing the interview tormented me. It was a hot June afternoon and beads of perspiration appeared on my face and my throat dried up. It was difficult to find a vacant auto during that rush hour. But luckily I managed to hail an auto within ten minutes and managed to reach just in time.

Ass. A good movie is my weakness. I went to see a new release ‘Morgan the Pirate’. I covered a distance of 5 km to reach the hall. As I reached the ticket window the ‘House Full’ notices greeted my eyes. Many like me were strolling around trying to buy a ticket through some other source. I could not muster up enough guts to approach a black marketeer as I had seen some policemen on duty. I felt crestfallen and did not know what to do. I had been very excited to watch that movie. But now the show had started and I felt like one condemned. In utter despair, I left but I had learnt a lesson—always get the advance booking done.
