Hi readers, this is Atul once again. This time, I have a complete new incident, which I would like to narrate to all my reading fans. Once I was flying to Kerala for some official work given to me by my boss. My flight was early in the morning at 6:40 am. I reached Cochin airport around 7:30 am and then headed towards Hotel Abad, where my booking was made. I checked in to the hotel and went to my room. I refreshed there by taking bath and went to cafe to have coffee. As I already had my breakfast in the flight, I was not hungry.
Once my coffee was over, I called up our local agent in Cochin that I am already in the hotel. He told me that he will be there around 10:30 am and then will take me to his office, which was not that far and in the area named Karuvelipadi. I then went went to my room. It was 8:30 am only and there were 2 hrs more in my hand before my work starts. So I can have a little nap. I woke up suddenly and saw the watch. It was 10:10 am, which means I had a good sleep of around 1 hr 40 min. I then went to wash room and freshen myself and was waiting for our agent.
He came sharp at 10:30 am and knocked the door of my room. I opened the door and greeted him inside. I asked him about his breakfast and he told that he already had it at his home before starting. So then we proceeded towards his office. He brought his car and within 15-20 minutes, we were in his office. He told me that I need to go to the interior part of Kerala called Alleppy.
Since our agent had some appointment that day, he told me that I will be accompanied by one of his senior employee and he will guide me to various places where I have to visit. Our agent (his name was Krishnan) has made arrangements for a car with driver and around 11:30 am, myself and his person Babu left from the office to go to Alleppy.
We reached Alleppy around 1:00 pm. Since it was a lunch time, we then went to hotel to have our food. We had our food and then started working. It was a real hectic day. Since we have to visit at least 10 places, it was not possible to complete the work in 1 day. Mr. Krishnan had already made our staying arrangements for that night.
After we finished visiting 4 places, we were too tired. Since morning, I was travelling only. First from Mumbai to Cochin and thereafter all the interiors of Kerala. I was feeling too tired. Babu realised that I am too tired and after 4th visit, which we finished around 4:00 pm, he told me that we can do the balance visits tomorrow, starting early. I thanked him for that and then we headed towards the place, where our staying arrangements were made.
It was an small bungalow of a Christian person named George. He was not staying there and was a good friend of Mr. Krishnan. There was a lady care taker who used to stay in the out house and would do all the cooking and care taking of the bungalow. Since it was right at the Kerala back waters, in season, the bungalow used to be completely occupied by visitors. Since we visited during off season, myself and Babu were the only people in that bungalow.
It was a bungalow with 3 bedrooms, 2 of them with attached toilets, one big hall and a kitchen. Plus there was a huge open terrace at first floor. We went inside and Shaily, the care taker was waiting for us. She had a talk with Babu and then she opened the door of the bungalow and we went inside. I liked the bungalow and I then took the corner bedroom with western toilets attached. Babu took the another bedroom with Indian toilets. We kept our bags inside our respective rooms and came out in the hall.
Shaily in the meantime had prepared nice coffee for us. I love the Kerala filtered coffee. The aroma of it was spread in the air. Myself and Babu had our coffee and then Babu called Shaily and talked to her something in her native language Malyalam. I didn’t understand anything from it. He has given some money to her. Shaily nodded in Yes and went away from there.
Babu told me that he had told her to bring tiger prawns from the market for night as it is a speciality here. Babu briefed me that Kerala coast is the richest one in the world known for its tiger prawns and huge amount of quantity is exported from there throughout globe. I was happy and thanked Babu for ordering tiger prawns.
We then parted to our rooms and had bath and got freshened up. Once I was ready, again I came to the hall and Babu was already there. He also freshened himself up. He told me that if I wish, we will have a round nearby. I told OK since I was quite fresh by now because of the hot shower. He then spoke to Shaily and we went away for a walk.
While walking, Babu was making me aware of the various specialities of Kerala and how the local people are marketing their products in global market etc. I was also asking him some questions in between to update my knowledge. We walked around 30 minutes and then started returning back. It was 6:00 pm. While returning back, Babu asked me whether I am drinking and I told yes.
We then purchased a bottle of whisky while coming back and also some bites as well. We came home around 6:45 pm and Shaily was preparing the dinner. The aroma of tiger prawns cooking was spreaded in the air. Once we went in, Babu told Shaily to bring some soda from nearby shop and she brought it in 15 minutes. In the meantime, we changed our dresses. I had my bermuda and t-shirt and Babu had his typical lungi with shirt above. We then opened the bottle and Shaily came with soda. We filled up our glasses and started enjoying our drinks.
Whenever I go on tour, I don’t drink more. It may be because you really don’t know when the liquor will get over you and you will tell your office secrets to the people, who should not know it. Therefore, I was going very slowly. I told Babu to be comfortable and he can enjoy his drinks with his speed, since I am a slow drinker.
By the time, my 2 pegs are over, Babu was filling his 5th page. He was a bit high and started telling some shit things which I ignored. Actually, I was encouraging him to drink more so that he will lose his senses. Because the time we entered in bungalow, I had an eye on Shaily. Like a typical Kerala village girl, she was gifted by god a plenty. Her big boobs, rounded big ass and slim waist line. She was not tall, may be around 5’1″ – 5’2″, little blackish with brilliant white teeth and smiling face. She must be around 25-30 years.
By the time we finished our drinks, Babu was completely out. He lost his senses and slept like that only. I tried to wake him up but alcohol has taken the toll of him. I then kept him like that and finished my 3rd peg. I then called Shaily and requested her to help me out in taking Babu to his room. She came to my help and with great difficulty and pains, we managed to put Babu on his bed. While putting on his bed, Babu vomitted in great force and quantity on Shaily’s saree. It was completely spoiled. I told her to go to her house and change it. In the meantime, I will clean him up. She thanked me and went to the out house.
I tied a handkerchief on my nose and then cleaned Babu completely. I removed his shirt and lungi which was full of vomit and then got one towel from his bag and tied around his waist. While I was finishing this, Shaily came back changing her saree. In Kerala, the villege girls don’t ware blouse, so she was in her saree, which was insufficient to hide her treasure on her front. She managed to tell me in Malyalam and Hindi mix that Babu does it every time. Whenever he comes here, he drinks a lot and then do the sin. She also thanked me for helping her and cleaning Babu.
I asked Shaily whether she had her food and she said how can I had food before you eat. Because you are guest here and I am a care taker. I then told her to have a food with me. She was not ready as how to eat with guests. Since Shaily was studied upto 7th Standard in English medium, we started talking in English. I told her that I don’t believe in such useless things and we both are human beings and should behave like a human. There is no superior or inferior and she should come and have her food with me.
By the time, my whiskey effect was completely vanished due to the sin. Shaily brought all the food in the hall with 2 plates. I then poured one peg in my glass and started seeping it slowly and at the same time, we both started eating our food. While eating, I asked Shaily whether she drinks and she blushed and in low voice said yes, sometimes she drinks.
I then asked her to bring another glass and she went in and brought the glass. I filled up a small peg for her and the we both started seeping and eating simultaneously. Shaily finished her peg and I offered another one and she said it will be a last for her. We then completed our food. While eating, she told me that she is getting that respect for the first time from any guest. There are lot of tourists and visitors she came across but nobody had treated her the way I done. Forget about having food together, nobody had even talked to her so nice and polite.
I then asked her about her personal life and she told that she got married at the age of 16. Her husband was working for Mr. George and she was assisting her husband Unni. She told me that Unni was a nice man and she was very happy with him. Unfortunately, after 2 years of marriage, Unni died in an bus accident and since then, she is working full time with Mr. George. She told that her master is a very good man and treated her like her daughter. That’s why she is working with him for last 12 years. At present her age is 28 years.
Listening to this, I felt pity for her and I told her sorry for asking the personal question. She said not to worry and then we discussed some other topics. After food is over, Shaily took all the empty vessels and went to kitchen. Immediately, a big sound of falling vessels and then a scream of Shaily made me run towards the kitchen. She fallen down and all the vessels fallen on her. She had a very bad bruise to her left ankle and could not even stand.
I told her not to worry and put my hand to her back in support to make her stand. She stood up and tried to walk but her ankle was bruised very badly and she even could not walk. I told her that I have an ointment in my bag but she was unable to walk to my room as well. Ultimately, I lifted her in my arms and took her to the bed. I made her lay on her back and told her to rest there, in the meantime, I will put the fallen utensils in sink and come back and treat her.
She once again thanked me for that and I went to kitchen and kept all the utensils in the sink. Also there was some remains were spilled on the floor which I cleaned up and then went to my room. I opened the bag and took the ointment tube and pain killers. While on tour, I always carry my first-aid box with me. I then took some ointment on my fingers and applied it on her bruised ankle and started rubbing it slowly. She had her right leg folded in the knees was watching me massaging her bruised ankle.
While massaging, I found a blood stain on her saree near her left knee and asked her about that. She told that her knee is also paining. I with her permission, pulled the saree towards her knee and found that there was a small cut on her knee and some blood was coming out of it. I then cleaned her wound with Dettol and put the band aid on it. While putting the band aid, my left shoulder touched her pubic area. She jerked with the sudden touch and immediately I took my hand out and said sorry to her.
She told me that its all right and I have not done it intentionally. Actually, I really didn’t do it intentionally and it happened accidentally. I completed her dressing and then gave her 2 pain killing tablets and she with my help, got slanted and gulped the tablets with water. I told her that she should sleep here only and I will sleep in another empty room since she was not able to walk.
All of a sudden, Shaily started crying and her tears started rolling over her cheeks. I thought that due to the pains, she is crying and told her that she should try to sleep. Once the pain killers will start working, her pains will also be less. But still she continued to cry. I asked her whether she got any problem. She nodded in NO. Her crying was stopped but still tears were falling from her eyes. I told her that she should tell me the problem and if necessary, I can arrange a medical assistance for her. I was thinking that she is crying due to unbearable pains and in the mind, I was also bit scared, as
