Baby on the road

Gul and I were on our way to the bank.

I was lost for an instant as the car braked suddenly near Mantralaya as a little baby came out of nowhere and ran onto to the road. Cars honked from behind. A raggedy young girl ran to pick up the baby and ran back to plonk the baby on the edge of the footpath. 

A narrow shave. For the baby. For Gul's driver. For us. Who is responsible in such a case? There is legal responsibility! Then there is moral responsibility.

'What is the solution, Tara?' Gul burst out, exaperated.
