It was an unusual experience. One night, some friends and I decided to go for a movie. We came out of the theater just past midnight. We were waiting to catch an auto when suddenly it began raining heavily. After waiting for sometime we decided to walk home though it would be a long walk. We had hardly walked a few hundred yards when the street lights went off and it was pitch dark. We were walking through knee deep water. We had anxious moments as we were afraid that we might fall into a manhole. The darkness added to our woes and the rain god seemed to be against us that night. Just then we saw a light at a distance. A car stopped in front of us and to our pleasant surprise a kind gentleman asked us to get inside the car and he dropped us home. He was none other than my neighbor who was returning home from work!
