"What an absolute mess, this morning has been. It started with me being rudely woken up by the harsh sound of metal clanging against metal. Each clanging sound seemed to resonate with my throbbing head, as I struggled to open my eyes. Already things seemed very strange. For one, I wasn't on my usual, soft bed. I groped around for my glasses, but all that my hands picked up, was the dirt from an unfamiliar, cold, stony floor. I tried another direction, and to my horror, discovered that I had grabbed some body's foot. No sooner had I retracted my hands in alarm, than a brusque voice rang out, 'behind you.' That was enough to jolt me awake, this time fully. As I put on my glasses, I began to take in my surroundings, completely and utterly bewildered. That same horrendous, metallic sound, and this time I traced the source. An impatient figure, rod in hand, commanded 'You, coat wale. Up. Inspector saab is waiting.' What the. I racked my brains, frantically trying to find an answer to my predicament, but none was forthcoming. I wasn't at my fastest, either. I did remember taking a couple of drinks at the party last night, which wasn't is any way unusual, but, other than this and the head-splitting techno music, I couldn't remember much else. 'You are lucky that I am letting you go. Take your belongings and get out of my sight.' Thankfully, I had enough of my wits about me to not open my mouth. I just nodded along, signed where I was told to, collected my wallet (which, except for a ten rupee note, had been emptied), and stumbled outside, into the blinding sun.
