Kashmir is a creation of nature. When the winter starts, nature automatically changes into the winds, rain, snowfall, etc. There was a time when my grandparents told me stories in winter about wild animals that came into the villages in search of food.
When I was growing up and was sleeping in my room, I was busy with my dream world. Once, I opened my eyes in the morning and saw that everywhere was covered with a white blanket, i.e., snow. I left my room, and went to the washroom, and washed my face. I suddenly saw a bear outside my house and I remembered the stories of my grandparents.
I was continuously watching the very hungry bear, and his eyes were red. My heart started beating very fast, but I didn’t move an inch from my washroom. I was standing there. The bear was slowly walking on the road. I got terrified, but I was safe.
My neighbours also got scared, they were locking their gates and watching what the bear was doing on the road! But I was definitely sure that the bear is searching for food and suddenly I saw an old man walking on the road. The bear was also watching him, but the man was unaware of the bear and didn’t listen to anything because his ears were damaged.
He was walking towards the market. I loudly asked him to stop and said that there is a bear on the road, and he is hungry, but he didn’t listen. Suddenly I remembered that this man is deaf, so I start gesturing. After 2-4 minutes, the man saw my gestures and understood that there is something wrong.
I also threw a piece of paper at him on which I wrote about the bear, and finally, the man saw the page and read that. He quickly turned back to the neighbour’s house, and relaxed. The bear was still waiting on the road, and now everyone was aware of the bear.
All the neighbours were in their houses. Finally, the bear started walking towards the forest, and on seeing the bear leaving towards the forest, we all were so relaxed and happy. After the bear was gone, everyone came out of their houses and started working happily and fearlessly.
