It is a story of this winter night of my hostel. It was heavily raining that day, so it was really very cold .
As I am an engineering student, so I was in habit of sleeping late at nights. So, on that night, when I was going to sleep at 3 a.m., I heard sound of a dog howling . At first, I ignored that sound & pulled my quilt over my face to minimise the sound. But after some time it increased continuosly. In my state, the crying of dog is believed as a something of a bad prediction, so with great courage in that cold night, I removed my quilt to chase her away. When I opened my door, I saw the dog was running from one corner to the another corner of the hostel. As I got near to her, and tried she started howling more . I followed her and ended to a place where her pups were getting wet in the rain. I looked at them & then her, which was mother of those puppys, which were crying at that moment. I was just dumbstrucked, what to do now.
After that, I went to the store of the hostel and found some broken tables. I placed and arranged those tables in such a way for them, such that rain couldn’t reach under the tables. But the floor was still wet. So, after that I came to my room & searched the clothes which I haven’t worn for past months. Then I found one of my t-shirt, which I laid under the table so that they can feel warm. After that I gave some biscuits to that mother. She was so obliged for this, that she was trying to rub her head on my legs & started licking my hands, I think it was her way to express thanks.
PS : I GOT BEST SLEEP OF MY WHOLE LIFE ON THAT NIGHT .
