The Morning Scene At A Water – Tap In A Street

All houses in a town have not water taps. The municipality of the town make arrangements to supply water for those who have no private taps. For this purpose every street has one or two taps. They are generally at the ends of the street. They are meant for those who need them. They are not private property.

Long before the taps are turned to run, men, women and children come to them with pails, pitchers and buckets in their hands. They place their  pots about the tap. Those who come first place their pots about the tap. Those who come first place their pots near to the tap. Some of them go back to finish work in  their houses. Others remain sitting there. They fear they will lose their turn.

Here is a description of scene at the tap in a street. On hearing the hissing sound of the tap everybody becomes active. Some of them who remain sitting push others to get water. This leads to exchange of hot words. After few minutes of hot words are followed by blow and elbows. These municipal taps are means of creating bad blood between neighbours.

When some were fighting and breaking one another’s head the tap ran uselessly. Others dared not to put their pots under taps. They got angry but they are helpless. An old man cried “Stop fighting, you foolish people.” But none hears his words. Everybody thinks that the tap will run out   after some time and they will have to go without water. People, therefore, separate the men who are fighting. They request them to fill their pots with water. At last the quarrel come to an end.

During the quarrel some people fill their buckets with water for drinking , washing and bathing. As the time of the running of the tap is very short, some persons have to return home without a drop of water. They wish to crush the heads of quarrelsome  people. But they can do nothing.

Besides the men and women. There comes a group of young men to the tap. They need no water. They come there with bad motives every morning and evening. They sit on the platform of the houses near the tap. They indulge in loose talk. They pass unbecoming remarks. Sometimes they address the lady by name. They tease young in very insulting way. Who can check them? They are goondas. They can threat everybody. Ladies bear their remarks.
