Colorful Earthlings from a Women’s College

Everyday, The scene is monotonous. There are buses, cars and bikes passing by on the road. Then, there are weary women and men from offices, having a cup of their favorite beverage from tea stalls, and children making their way through the footpath ridden with shops.

However, there is uneasy (read comfortable) silence surrounding it. It is break time for me and my friends. It is also the time when a women’s college shuts its doors and instantly activates a flurry of activity in the outside world.

Firstly, there are a set of devoted boyfriends in their bikes, patiently waiting for their girlfriends. One guy holds the bag while she loosens her hair and swift ties it into a bun while the other with a wayfarer is concerned to show off the bike’s roar and is ready to take off as soon as his girlfriend is on board.

Remember the devoted tea and coffee lovers who are involved in serious office discussions (read gossip). Like a lighthouse light, limited to a 180° angle, their shifting gaze and their side sliding heads are focused on the exiting earthlings who are dressed colorful apparel.

Third, the sudden influx of buses, share autos, cars and bikes creates a flutter of activity. There is a congestion. There is a screaming policeman in the center of the road, trying to smooth things on the road. Oblivious to the events surrounding him, It just another day for the policeman, who brings backs the calm after the chaos.
