We stayed at Sheila for a week. Daily we set out early in the morning to visit beauty spots around Sheila. We welcomed drizzling, but when it rained heavily, we had to stay indoors. Then we played some indoor games and enjoyed the dainty dishes prepared by the cook we had arranged. After the rain, everything looked fresh. When the weather was fine, we sometimes, especially in the evenings, went to the Mall or the Ridge. There we saw people from different parts of the world. They were all in a hilarious mood. There were some vendors who sold some gift articles at exorbitant rates. We already knew that most of them were cheats. So, we kept our purchases at the minimum. But we did bring at least one dainty gift for each member of our families.
