It happened one night....the classic movie clicks immediately to our minds when we read this...but in my case nothing romantic about it!
I am never ever going to forget the horrid night of 17th February 2009.
It was 1 am and I was returning from office with my colleague on his bike. On the way, this particular street which is called as "Hollywood" for all the wrong reasons, over there, some 5-6 dogs started barking at us and encircled us in gangs.
I was scared to death. The street was deserted and out of nowhere the dogs followed us. We stopped for a moment to calm them down but they became even more aggressive and ultimately it led to one of my topsy-turvy moments of life!
One of those dogs just pounced on my leg (actually, above ankle) and I struggled hard to drift it away...counter-aggression did not help as shock had already gripped me.
Somehow, my colleague managed to make a way and at full speed we ran away from the scene.
Those hounds kept chasing us and after some moments were gone, I breathed a sigh of relief when I could no longer hear their barks...Bow Woo..Bow woo...and believe me there is nothing cute in this noise at night!
Finally, I landed up at home and went to the doctor ...got injections...and this dose will be complete in April!
The next day I had an official trip to Surat which eventually got cancelled because of this sorry state of mine...How much I had wanted to be a part of this, anyway will have more chances soon...Was at home for 2 days...Back to routine stuff
Even now when I think of that night it sends jitters in my body.....
p.s. - street dog menace is a matter of social concern....Are Municipal Corporation Officials listening???
