I am Snoopy. I have been living with Ria for 8 months. I love my family, they care for me a lot. I think today was a Special day. Everyone was wearing shiny things. I got good things to eat and new toys to play. Ria was also smiling a lot today. Even that lady who lives next door came with big gifts and sweets. The house was dazzling with lights and colour. As everyone started to go out, Ria was telling me something. I couldn’t understand what she was saying and I was nervously waiting to be released but Ria told that she will return soon and left. I got scared. I was getting a bad feeling. Then, I heard a loud screeching sound. I started calling Ria. But no one could hear me. I looked out from window and saw fire was filling the sky. I thought maybe everything will be destroyed. I curled in a ball in the ground crying, waiting for Ria to come back and the sounds to stop. Instead, the fire and sounds Increased.
After l very long time, Ria came home. I quickly ran to her wanting to be held but she was smelling weird. She looked at me smiling but started coughing. I was confused. Mom Dad took Ria away, and I was left alone again. Now the sound had reduced but I was feeling hard to breathe and was very scared. Next some days were hard for me to overcome my fear. I was not feeling well. Even when I went out for walk, the roads were very dirty, and it was difficult to breathe. Dad asked me not to touch anything in park and brought me home early. Ria was ill and was always coughing. Everyone was wearing something on the face . Dad told me everything will be back to normal in some days and I will be able to go back to the park again. As I was sitting, waiting for everything to go back to as it was, I remembered what Ria was telling before leaving that day, “Snoopy today is Diwali. We are going to burn firecrackers to celebrate the win of good over bad. I will come back soon”. But isn’t fire and loud noises scary? Isn’t not able to breathe and dirty road a bad thing. I tried to ask, as no one could understand me, I never got my answers.
