Diwali celebrations were on. Only Om’s house was dark.
Vidya paced the terrace. She didn’t have time to mourn his passing. She had other things on her mind – would the years of experimentation pay off? Had they achieved that elusive fusion of ultramodern technology and ancient mind control?
Vidya pressed the amplification button implanted in her wrist and concentrated.
Foreboding assailed her. What if they had again miscalculated? Would Om go Dev’s way?
Focus dammit focus!
Her wrist throbbed.
The button vibrated emitting waves in Om’s distinctive handwriting – Netherworld cooler than Delhi. No pollution either. Dev says Hi.
