Sleeping place

The migrant labour decides to rest for the night. His bed is not cozy and comfortable big cot with a soothing mattress. He makes his simple bed in the hard cement floor of the car shed. An old and torn sheet made from a packing carton forms the first layer. The second layer is an old lungi. His pillow is solid. It is a hard octagon shaped stone. Mosquitoes sing lullaby. Rats freely roam around him and occasionally cats come wish him a good night’s sleep.  Last but not the least; an ant hill is located close by. It is also witnessing an active troop movement. Few members might desert the troop and might come to taste his skin. Bright tube lights also drive away the darkness.
