The sweltering summer of Delhi was becoming overbearing. Commuting to and from my workplace was becoming a menacing task. Making dinner seemed like the most dreaded task of the day. In our attempt to escape the torrid weather, albeit only for a weekend, my friends and I decided to travel and lose ourselves in the hills of Himachal. The trip was nothing short of exhilarating. It was the ideal break I had been waiting for. As I boarded the return train, I was positive that I am going to get back to work with a renewed zeal from the next day. But, what happened the next day took me by surprise.
