Sun and his son's Midnight Redlight operationWord Selected 'Halt'(of Mr.Partha). Synonym 'Stop''
"Stop" shouted Raja. Mr Sun brought his good old Padmini to a screeching halt. Sun asked his son,"What happened, Raja?" Raja said,"Dad, just reverse the vehicle. I have seen something." Sun reversed his vehicle and parked it on the left side of the road. Raja said,"Dad, Can you see a red lamp flickering there?" Sun said,"Yes. I can see." "Dad, I think, someone is waving a red light seeking for help." Raja said. Sun said,"May be. It is 12 O'clock midnight. It could be some ghost, I think." "Stop it dad. You always think about ghosts. Very bad is your negative thinking. I think, someone is in emergency and needs a help or something is wrong there. That's the reason they have selected a red lamp. Let us go and see what's there." Raja said.
Sun steered his Padmini towards the building from where the red light appeared. As the car reached the building, the red light disappeared. Sun and his son were wondering to see no red light in that area. The area was fully dark and silent with no movement of personnel. Sun said,"I already told you that it could be a ghost. See, the light is missing. Let us return."Raja said,"come on dad, Don't be in a virtual world. We are in a real world." He asked his dad to park and hide the vehicle in a dark place with no lights on. Suddenly they could see a white light flashing from a bush.
After few minutes, they could see a lady coming out of the building and reaching the bush. Sun and his son quietly followed the lady. There they saw a gentleman handing over a suitcase to the lady. The gentleman said,"Keep it safe until 31st March. You can take your 40 percent share." They parted after kissing each other.
Sun and his son rested in the car for one hour. They quietly drove down to the nearby police station and narrated the events. At 0300 hrs, the police along with IT officials raided the lady's house and found the suitcase containing new 2000 rupee currency notes(100 bundles) worth 2 crores. The police arrested the lady and started their investigation. This was informed to the Prime Minister. The news flashed in the newspapers and TV channels.
Sun and his son were awarded by the Prime Minister of India for their red light action.
