Today is moonlit night. One of the dearest matters to me in thr world. I have been walking on the road from evening. I like walking. I am a walker, I am a would be saint, I am nobody. I don't have wrist watch, so I don't have any idea about the time. But I can easily guess it's around 1 a.m. If I haf a watch then I could match the time if I was right or wrong. People say I have magical power. I don't believe it, Rupa also doesn't. But I know Rupa believes that I have some unusual power, I am very special to her. Once she gifted me a wristwatch, a costly rolex watch; silver colored with metal chain. I liked the gift very much, wore it whole day. Then suddenly I felt this watch isn't for me. Himus don't have any attraction for expensive things, they are simple. That night I was drinking tea at a tea stall. I don't had any cash with me, so I gave the watch to the shopkeeper and said, "Please keep it, I don't have money." The man of the stall was so astonished that he couldn't say a single word, just stared at me, making his eyes big and round. Oh, good idea! I can go to that tea stall now and demand for another cup of tea. The watch was so expensive that it's value is more than the total capital of the tea-stall. Umm, not now, I should take some rest now. At this moment I am at Ramna park. sitting in a bench. Oh God! I totally forgot about the moonlight for which I came here. Tonight I won't go anywhere, will just enjoy the moonlight. The surrounding is very calm and it should be. I decided to sleep on the bench. I lied down straigt and looked at the sky. How beautiful it is! Oh, I forgot to give you the identity of Rupa. What is her identity? Ok, she is a girl, I think the most beautiful girl in the world. She is the only daughter of her rich father abd she lost her mother at early age. The most surprising matter is that the girl cares about me? Why does she? Am I her boyfriend? Is she my girlfriend? I don't know, I really don't know. But I must say that I she is the only girl in the world that I feel sonetimes I should marry her and make a wonderful family. But I can't, because Himus don't have family. oh, the mild light of the moon touching my whole body.What a peace! You must be curious about my name. Ok, lets tell you about that. My full name is Himalaya. My father named me. My father was more strange than me I think.He was my only teacher. I never went to school. My father taught me reading and writing and many other things at home. He wanted to make me a superhuman. In fact he tried to be so, but he failed as he told me. So it was his wish that his son would fulfill his dream. From childhood, I wad raised in a very tough context. There were only two members in the family, me and father. My mother? Well, she died at my early age. My maternal uncle told me that my father killed her. I don't know the truth. My father never liked me to ask about mother.I don't even remember her face.Even my father burned all the photographs of my mother. When I was 13 my father died suddenly.He was alcoholic and was suffering from tuberculosis. After his death, I spent some days at my maternal uncle's house.They tried to admit me I. school, but I didnt like it.I ran away one day. I shortened my name as Himu. Now I wander here and there, sometimes visit my relative's place. They say me to stay with them but I don't. I like to help people.
