Dec 31st night: 9:00pm.
Loud music was blasting from the speakers. Men were enjoying their drinks .Women were setting up the table for dinner. Four children under 5 years of age were screaming and running.
C:Child W:Woman M:Man
C1: “Mommy, I want the brown thingy that Dad is drinking”
W1(yelling): “Ravi, don’t put your toy truck in the chicken gravy”
W2:“Saritha, Should I add spice to this dish?”
C2(crying) :“Mommy, Usha pinched me”
M1: “Geetha, Where are the ice cubes?”
Every one spoke but no one listened.
Madness ruled the house. New year began in the midst of that chaos.
