Watch Woman!

Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers
"Oh! Where's all the milk?
What about my bar of Cadburys Silk?

Where has my gold bangle gone?
I can't seem to find my old phone!

I'm sure there was a full packet of mithai*
It's halved; did it catch someone's evil eye?!

This is so strange! I can't fathom!
Is it the handiwork of some phantom?

Very surprising! I am shocked as can be!
Sherlock Holmes should have the key!

Wait! Why not I be detective?
Catch who's behind these acts furtive!"

I pretended to leave for office that day...
Checked in at the neighbourhood cyber-cafe! 

Entered the website and saw the 'live' coverage!
My home looked so sweet in the webpage!

Then I saw my main-door opened & shut
The culprit was now committing crime fataphat*!

One thing she didn’t know-
that she was being watched now!

It was my watchman's daughter!
Home-Security CCTV Technology enabled me to nab her!

I changed my watchman & my apartment's keys!
My lesson- Never hand over the keys, please!


*Mithai- Hindi word for 'Sweets'
*Fataphat- Hindi word for 'Fast'

  12. Really ?? Omg scary .. But did she just take the food?? or anything else ??

    1. Sangeeta, We never know that things are missing, till we look for them & can't find them even in the places they are supposed to be...
      Food going missing is ok in a way that we can get a substitute, but certainly not for unique items like Gold etc. Many of my Mom's precious belongings- Silk-sarees, cash, jewellery, watches etc went missing...Sadly no Technology's help was taken, but the she knew who the culprit was as only one person had the keys!
