have expected that, he, of all people, would
be the target of baddies. The toughies appeared
from nowhere, did some rough talk and scooted
off with his auto. Arya, boiling with anger,

time you some kerfuffle going on in the
auto-stands, road sides, slums etc., do
look around for a suave looking ‘auto’
guy, Arya is bound to be there!
