THE WAITING GAME
By Neel Anil Panicker
He had stepped out of his one room second floor hideout off the dingy lanes bordering Outram Lines wearing a crispy white shirt topped with a greyish black suit, a maroon tie and a pair of black shoes adding to the sartorial finnesse.
Then, he had walked towards the tube and taken the 11: 53 from Barakhamba Station and alighted at Connaught Place. Threafter, he had checked out of Gate No. 8 and proceeded towards Starbucks, outside which he now waited, seated on a green coloured wooden bench, the third from the right, the one that looked towards the imposing façade of the Royal Bank of Scotland across the busy street. From behind dark Ray Ban glasses, his hawkish eyes bored into the inside pages of the day’s city edition of The Financial Express.
So far he had followed all instructions to a T.
Soon it would be time to pull off the largest bank heist of the century.
