It was the month of December last year. It was the coldest day of the winter season. The sky was overcast with clouds and chilly winds were blowing. The temperature went down to minus zero degrees.

Everybody was shivering due to cold. Water froze in pipes. Nobody dared to peep out. Blankets and quilts gave no warmth. Then it rained heavily. The sun appeared in the afternoon but gave no comfort.

It was very dull I was at my house. My mother called me to leave the quilt and get ready to go out to buy some items in the market. Leaving the quilt was very difficult. However, I did it and put on my dress.

Outside it was extremely cold and foggy Nothing was visible clearly. Sunlight looked like a moonlight. With difficulty, I boarded a bus, but the driver also found it difficult to drive.

I found people sitting around the fire to get some warmth. I spent little time in the market and rushed back home. Once there, I again took shelter inside the quilt.
