Excerpt from the story, Mangoes at Midnight:

Come ye, Red Warriors! The monster of boredom grows stronger. Adventure is our only weapon. Tonight as the clock strikes 12, we shall embark on an adventure . . .” Thus continued the red letter from the red warriors and Krishna couldn’t resist his curiosity. Honey Valley Public School had a lush 200-acre mango grove. But the students were strictly banned from entering the groves and never got a single slice of the heavenly aromatic mangoes. Ever since the scorching summer began, Krishna relished the memories of the juicy mangoes from his granny’s village. He couldn’t wait for midnight anymore, to set off for the escapade to the mango groves.
