A Robbery

on

With silent steps he entered the room from the terrace. “That was some climbing, I better workout regularly or I’ll be out of business.” he thought to himself. Moving inside with carefully planned steps he came across what he was looking for, a diamond ring. It lay next to the girl, the would be bride. It was her wedding ring that she had bought with the little savings she had. Slowly he picked it up and dashed out of the room, closing a chapter behind.

In the dark he left the city in search of his new ‘love’. “I’d better do a background check this time or I’ll end up with yet another broke cow. Thank God I got my hands on this ring, something is better than nothing.” he said as he began planning a ‘love at first sight’ meeting for the 48th time!

    ‘Closing a chapter behind’ tells you a lot. I have seen the photographs of hundreds of criminals kept in crime bureau. Why do we allow them to roam in our midst? From the newspaper reports, we see the same criminals following their trade only interrupted by occasional spells of short duration punishments. And they go on ‘closing chapter after chapter’
