With no parking slot available on the busy market street, double parking my car after turning the SOS lights on while pulling the bag and wallet from the side seat, I hurriedly stepped out to buy hot and fresh “Jalebi and Fafada” from the renowned sweet shop on the other side of the road.

At that very moment, a loud bang blanked me out momentarily so much so that it took me a while to register a cacophony of discordant sounds around that had spooked me to the core.

A moment of awakening struck me like a thunderbolt when I saw an SUV swivelling and speeding away at a distance while my body lay in the pool of blood by the side of my car, with me stooping over it puzzled as my shadow fell nowhere.

I’m always in awe of how writers can weave complex emotions with such few words. This was amazing.

Finally I discovered you…Anagha Joshi aka Anagha Yatin! Splendid take. And btw you did a pretty neat job of putting down just three sentences.
