Letter Z- Azure Blue

When Arjun reached the place, the Honda City was pulling out of the parking of the building.  Any vehicle repeatedly found on the premises of a building robbed cannot escape suspicion in the investigative mind of a police officer.  The same car is found the second time in the same place. 

The scene continues from the previous one.

 

Sir, that Azur blue Honda City is parked in the same place.” Dev alerted Arjun.  He watched the CCTC footage in the building where a robbery happened the previous week.

The same car, the same registration number.

When Arjun reached the place, the Honda City was pulling out of the parking of the building.  Any vehicle repeatedly found on the premises of a building robbed cannot escape suspicion in the investigative mind of a police officer.  The same car is found the second time in the same place. 

The car owner is someone he has seen before or has a sort of an appreciation in his mind is no reason for not questioning her.  That is a simple procedure.  That helps to clear the air of doubts too.

He stopped his car to prevent Malavika from backing out of the parking.  He got out of his vehicle- Malavika was behind the wheel. 

He moved to the driver’s side.  “Miss Malavika, can I have a word with you.”

“Sure.” He noticed his address to her Miss didn’t produce any surprise in her eyes.

“I saw your car last week parked here,” he chatted informally.

“Any problem.”

“Not at all, there was a robbery last week in the building.”

“Heard about it.”

“I just came to warn you about that.” He made it mildly taking away the formalities of a police questioning.  

“Oh!  Thank you.  I came to attend a meeting.  We met on the top floor as writers.”

She is a writer--last time an IT specialist working with Infosys.

"I thought you were employed at..."

"This is my interest.  Also meeting with an editor.  My book is getting published next month." 

Arjun swallowed hard.  

"Will you be attending my book lounge?"

"Please let me know the detail."

Spend a day with my favourite author

 Spending a day With My Favourite Author The Image is taken from Blog Chatter      I can include a list of authors on my favourites, filter them down to five and then screen them to a final three. The finalists are J M Coetzee, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Trevour Noah.       JM Coetzee is the two times Booker Prize winner for his novels, Life &Times of Michael K (1983) and Disgrace in 1999. The theme of Life and Times of Michael K hadn't made sense to me when I read it for the first time. It was a time when I couldn't analyse creative writing beyond the book's pages and that of a great writer like Coetzee.   The novel unfolds the concerns and the dilemma of Michael K, ugly to look at, beset by life conditions he never comprehends and can't control during the times of a fictional civil war in South Africa. Another reason to be fascinated by the two books is the story settings are places I am living or lived.       Disgrace is a suggestive story about post-apartheid

Things I would Like to Work on in the Month of August

  4Things I would like to work on in August Images from my file using Canva.com Failing to plan things is planning to fail. During my teaching years, I crammed the idea into my learner's minds and mine. Once I retired, I lapsed into not caring about planning things.   The call to write about four things I like to work on in August came as a wake-up call to renew the habit, and I jumped for it. August, in a biblical sense, is the month of beginning things. In South Africa, August celebrates 'women's Month,' to commemorate a historic march of women of all races made on 9 August 1956 against apartheid.  The month of July got stuffed up with book reviews and Insta Reel creations, things I enjoyed much. The beautiful themes and plot developments of the books reviewed afforded me new perspectives, and I have more queued in my reading list. The IG Reels were a thing of technical adventure, a challenge that made me feel stupid in the initial days, and when I called out 'Eu

Arjun Madhavan - the Protagonist of my up-Coming Thriller-Murder at Thampuran Kotta

A 'no' uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a 'yes' merely uttered to please, or worse to avoid trouble -- Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi A-For Arjun #BlogChatterA2Z The image was taken from Pexels.com Thoroughly excited to reveal the protagonist of my upcoming thriller -Murder at Thampuran Kotta, as part of this year's A2Z marathon-the first of its kind I have ever undertaken. His name is Arjun Madhavan--a familiar name among Malayalam speakers. The first post would suffice to present him before you, not a hectic introduction. Then the remaining twenty-five posts to complete the rest of my novel or up to where they take me. This is my second author endeavour- the first is an e-book titled, Under the Bakula Tree, published on Amazon.com-- a contemporary woman story and a short read--a sisterhood taking root under the patriarchy is the subtitle.   Three-fourths of the thriller I have covered.  It was a group expedition, I reckon, sailing through unfamili
