Dear Diary,

While walking to the office from my bus stop, I was shivering like anything. As I entered, the guard bhaiyya greeted me with his usual ‘good morning’. Instantly, he figured out that I was deathly cold. Since the office’s centralised air-conditioned system was still switched off, the guard bhaiyya immediately offered me his seat near his heater. He then gave me a cup of hot tea that he had made for himself. The tea helped me to get back to my senses. Soon colleagues started coming and it was time to get back to work. I did not forget to thank the guard bhaiyya. Good people are there in this city.

Dear Diary,

Last week, I went to a bookstore in Janakpuri. There I saw a beautiful young woman relaxing on a chair. Piles of books were arranged haphazardly about her. When I looked at her for the first time, she was busy reading. At my second glance, she was still deep in the book. I went on browsing around the shelves when suddenly I saw her popping a book into the front pocket of her overcoat. She saw me! Smilingly weakly, she got up and was out of the store in a jiffy. And I stood there wondering how many books and novels she was loaded with. — Shagun Suhail
