It was raining very heavily. I got into a bus & found it deserted. I had a shower bath experience in the old government bus. The roof of the bus spit the rain water which it harvested.
Since it became too cold, I had to wear my sweaters. The conductor wiped out a three seat and asked me to shift there if I need to avoid the shower.
I wondered why a conductor would help me like this. I shifted to the seat which the conductor pointed. After some time, he arrived from his allotted seat at the back of the bus and sat next to me. He began a conversation and started talking about cinema.
Since I had to kill some time, I too answered him reluctantly. After 5 minutes, his hands were crawling in my thigh. I got really shocked and scolded him. He left the seat and never came to the front side of the bus.
This is alarming; there is not safety for male passengers too. The conductor did not have a clean conduct.
I was 6 years old.
My Grandma was preparing the eggs, laid by my country hen for hatching. She kept the eggs on a basket full of mud and top layer covered with husk. I was not aware that it would take 20+ days to hatch and was keenly watching the basket for the egg to hatch. Laughing at my ignorance on this, my grandma told that it would take 20 days & asked me to wait until that!
After 20 days when the eggs hatched, I was convinced on the subject how chick came out of the egg. Even though I did not understand how it went in. To solve the doubt I went to my mom and asked
How children are born?
I got the standard answer what parents give. “God will give to every married lady!” Mom replied.
“How will god know who is getting married“, I asked.
I got a tight slap from her. Crying and confused I left the place.
I am now not sure, how I would educate my kid if he/she asks the same at that age. Is Sex education required at that age?
