As we sat watching , one night , a mouse called Stuart driving a car on the screen of the television , the T.V. went phut suddenly , all blank – kaput!
The March Hare by now had taught me the art of getting a faulty remote controller to work py pressing the buttons harder.


चादर पलट कर देखा तो करवटें उड़ गईं
आज माँ के चेहरे से सलवटें उड़ गईं ।
एक चटनी वो खट्टी सी माँ के हाथों की , (और)
शाही दस्तरख़ानों की लज़्ज़तें उड़ गईं ।
