Two pairs of hands hoisted a white cloth. It wasn't a white cloth, it was a woman dressed in white.They were hanging a woman. Marimuthu and another man. The body shook violently all of a sudden. After a few moments, the body lay limp.
Anil watched, numbed from the horror. He crouched into the dirt-stained corner and sat there for the rest of the night. A little boy, clutching his mouth with both hands and silencing the sobs that wracked his little body.
