I usually come late at night from work.
My job is such that it requires me to stay late at night . and I often reach home by 1 am or 2 am at night . when everybody sleeps I work and when I reach home , it becomes so quiet that you hear the sound of insects from the nearby ground. well , its not only me who works night shifts , there are so many different professions that do night shifts , but I am one of them .
When I started doing night shifts it was difficult for me to cope with it only coz it was night shift. at first it becomes very difficult for ones body to adjust , to stay awake and to keep its eyes open all night , its against the natural body schedule. but work is work and duty calls. so job needs to be done.
Anyway , I am not here to tell you about night shifts , I am here to tell you what happens at night when I reach home and it happens frequently.
I took this picture recently , which you see above. I took this coz its home to little one. I call it little one coz it is little and its my secret friend.
One morning I was doing jogging in this ground which is in my apartment next to my flat. in the morning at 4 when its still dark and quiet , one can come across number of dark creatures , some known and some unknown.
Animals like cats and dogs are regular visitors to my apartment and they do no harm to anyone. so its fine with us. on this fateful day when I was jogging I heard a noise , like a scream , it was like a modified cat sound. like cats do me ew . it was anywhere in between me aa uuu eww. I knew it was not a cat but it did sound like a cat. I stopped and kept on hearing this sound from the corner where we see lights , right underneath this light she lives. behind the pole.
I stopped and tried to reach closer to the light , I saw wo eyes, glowing eyes, and then I noticed it had no four legs like cats. it had two legs and it was standing in upright position.
I was perplexed . I had courage to reach closer but as I stepped closer its roar increased it became more challenging . it was like its warning me to stay away and not to come any closer .
Luckily I had my smart phone with me and I took no time in clicking this pic.
Its there , I know you cant see but its right there , behind the pole , when I took this picture I knew this thing was watching me , was watching my every move and it was there.
I decided to stay away from it and respect its presence.
Now every time I reach home at night , little ones know my presence and tries to call me down from distance and sometime I do visit little one.
But from safe distance.
