Radha gripped the handle of the contraption as she held her six year old with the other hand.

‘Seat belts?’ Radha asked the attendant.  He pretended to not hear.

Once full,  he flicked a switch to start the roundabout.  Slowly, it came to life.  But,  as it gained momentum,  Radha realized the chair car had no fixed route.  It moved back and forth and sideways and jerked randomly.  She screamed in fear.
