Finding me without ticket, he imposed a heavy fine on me. On my telling him that I had no money on me, he handed me over to the duty magistrate. All my pleadings failed to convince the duty magistrate that I was not a habitual traveler without ticket but were under the stress of circumstances.
I was sent behind the bars for a fortnight and as I came out, I learnt that my poor mother had expired in the meantime. What a tragedy I do not exactly know what I did was right or wrong but the loss of my mother to me will ever remain unforgettable and irreparable.
