Take 1 – Year 2001

He relaxed once he had boarded Flight 77. 5 years back he had arrived in Washington, with the hope of having a decent job. But destiny awaited something else. He was now a classified thief but had no regrets. Soon he will be faraway from the clutches of the law. He was heading off to Los Angeles from where he will catch a flight to India. The DC Police will never find him in a random village of India. He will assume a new identity, buy land in partnership with landlords he had heard of and live a life of ease. He will soon be faraway from them all.

September 11, 2001 would be the day of his freedom.

Take 2 – Year 2008

He landed at the airport. Freedom at last. Soon he will be faraway from the clutches of law. In three days he will leave Mumbai and the DC police will never find him in a random village of India. His friend will meet him in a high-class hotel, ready with the dollars he had stolen converted in Indian rupees. It was a tough scam, but success was achieved. He was rich and faraway from law. A new life awaited him ahead. He caught a cab and reached his hotel. So far so good. “Welcome Sir, your room is ready, please sign here.” The fake passport worked. He signed the register.
