BELOW THE BELT

Manickam, where are we going?

Down below, Sir. Please watch your step.

How did you find this place?

Actually, by fluke. I stopped my bike here. The wheel was wobbling. After setting it, just stood near the parapet to catch my breath. I glanced down and saw the darkness below. Thought it a likely place to investigate.

You did right. Let’s see.

Sir, I dread what we may find. Can’t face them.

True. But we have to do our duty!
