On the night of 2nd or 3rd Nov ( I was in class 9)…I don’t remember what was the date, it was 1 am in the night, I was standing on the 2nd floor balcony with my uncle & dad and I could see fire and white smoke around 300 metres away. Also the rioters were banging lathis on the ground and making raucous noises. My view was blocked by building and trees…this went on for 20 minutes, I was scared and thought that I will not live through the night. It was so scary that I couldn’t take any more of it and I went and sat on my bed, thinking that today is the last night of my life….I don’t remember when I slept, but when I got up in the morning, I could see sunrays streaming down on my bed sheet….for a moment I thought I had died and was in heaven, it touched myself and shouted for my mom to check if I was alive. After 25 years I still remember the bright sunlight shining on my bed sheet. Later I came to know that shop in the nearby market was partially burnt and no one was hurt as the owner was not around.
