The old man wakes up at the day break, finishes off his morning routine and goes to the nearby bus depot.
The security guard at the bus depot gives him a knowing smile and sits by him to have a small chat. The old man starts narrating enthusiastically about his son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren, whom he is expecting to arrive then. He tells the guard that he has travelled all the way to receive them.
The guard who looks like he is expecting someone himself, gives him nods at regular intervals. After all, he has been hearing the same story for the past six months.
There has never been a day, where the old man didn’t arrive to receive his family. Six months back, he had lost his entire family in a terrible bus accident. The old man, who couldn’t comprehend the whole incident, lost his sanity. He still thought everyday to be the day, his family arrived.
The guard looks at the entrance for, he knows that the old man’s wife would come to take him back anytime now.
