1. I hadn’t decided whether I liked Afghanistan or not. I knew my father did, though he had been here for only four months, working as an engineer at the Irrigation Project. My brother and I had stayed back in Delhi with my uncle and aunt. We had come to spend our holidays with my parents in the small town of Kunduz, not far from the Russian border. We had visited the historical place of Balk over the weekend, and were on our way back when everything began to oppress me: the stillness of the wild rocky mountainside, bare of any vegetation; the ghostly craters of rocks and stones; the dust and the heat. I felt uncomfortable. I looked at my brother, sitting next to me in the car. Suddenly he said, “Look at this side. Isn’t it a perfect hiding place for dacoits?”
2. Without taking his eyes off the road before him, father said, “I haven’t been long enough in Afghanistan but I think that the people of Afghanistan are rather friendly and hospitable.” I met his eyes in the rear view mirror. He smiled at me and added “Oh, don’t look so frightened, Puja.” My father slowed down and brought the car to a halt on the right. “Nothing to worry about,” he assured us. “I’m checking the rear wheels.” He got out of the car.
3. “Do you want some water, Puja?” asked Mother. I nodded and extended my hand, while my eyes travelled past her, up the road. What I saw made me drop the cup. I continued to stare past my mother’s surprised face at two men rushing towards our car. They were coming straight at us. I shrieked and pointed at them. “Dacoits! Dacoits!” My mother turned around to stare at them. They were shouting, “Advia!” My mother shrieked too. “Papa, dacoits! They’re coming straight at us. Come back. We have to leave. Start the car, Papa. Hurry! Please!” My brother said. Sudhir banged the door and shouted at us, “Shut the doors. Wind up the window glass, fast.”
4. The taller of the two had already reached the bonnet. His left hand slid over the metal and touched my mother’s window. He shouted something. “Lock the door, Ma. You must lock the door. Bring your window up, Puja. Do you hear?” my brother shouted. I wanted to move, wind up the window, but I couldn’t. By that time, I had realized my mistake and started raising the window glass. The hands were caught by the upward moving glass. He grabbed it, and clung to it, trying to push it down with great force.
5. The glass inched up slowly, painfully. The man yelled and withdrew his hands. He shouted at my mother. His words sounded like’ Advia’. Then from behind him, the other one emerged. Then grabbing my arm, he pushed himself forward and he roared, “Advia, Advia, Advia!” As the car gathered speed he fell into a run beside it, still holding onto the window frame with his left hand. And then his hands were gone, his hands were gone, his hands, his face and his voice. I did not turn to look back. But Sudhir did. He cried excitedly, “We licked them. I was on the verge of crying as I fought the voice still running through my head, “Advia, Advia.” “Pa,” I said finally, “I would like to look up the word ‘Advia’. I wonder what it means.” My father returned from the bedroom with a thick dictionary. It did not take him long to find the word, but it took him almost a minute to read it. His face was pale and his eyes looked troubled as he said in a flat voice “Advia means ‘medicine’.”
