The Finger

I spot her in the crowd…run to her.
“Kitni umar hain bacche ki?”
No reply….she just showed me the finger.

I spot him in the crowd. His eyes meet mine…he nods…and shows me the finger.

Ahh….thats how the days are in the life of a “Pulse Polio” intern.

[For the uninitiated, any kid who has recieved the Polio vaccine on the immunisation day gets a mark on his little finger, to identify the unvaccinated ones.]
