The Jail Term

KM Habiba Naaz

17 year old KM Habiba Naaz lives in Sambhal, Uttar Pradesh. Born to truck driver, Mohd. Usman and Majda Nasreen, she aspires to be a teacher and help poor children have access to education. Currently she studies in Ishrat Group of Institutes.

It was the second Sunday of January 2008. I was enjoying my holiday with my friends at home. We all were playing indoor games. Every Sunday my friends used to come to my house to play Hide and Seek. We used to enjoy our day together. My friend Anam was hiding in the kitchen where my Mum was busy making aloo paratha for us. That was when my mother’s phone started to ring.

She picked up the call and after a few moments of patient hearing, said “Oh God how did this happen?” It was my father on the other side of the call. We all gathered near the kitchen waiting for my parent’s conversation to be over. When the call was disconnected my mum said grimly, “Your father got arrested by Assam police.”
