Mr. Sen is my next door neighbour. He has a blue-coloured “small car” that he wishes to change.
I know so many details about his car! You must be wondering- how do I know? Well, each time we meet in our building's premises, Mr.Sen never fails to mention about his “small car”. Over the years, I have learnt the history about Mr. Sen's car- when he bought it, how he bought it, why he bought it...
Mr.Sen had bought a second-hand car, the first car of his life, a decade ago so that he and his daughter, MunMun, who was in college then, could learn how to drive together. The plan was that both of them would learn driving using a second-hand “small car” and then once they were confident drivers, he would upgrade his car. I had been hearing this story ever since I shifted to our apartment-complex. Being a software professional, I travel often and my car, parked under the cover, gathers layers of dust. Back from yet another official trip, I was cleaning my car in the garage when I saw Mr.Sen.
He said, "You know, Sid, I really have to change my car! My retirement is next year and I am still using a small car!”
“I have been hearing about your plans for so many years now, Mr.Sen! It’s high time you implement your plans!” I remarked.
