Scream!

Scream!

Her screams carry the echo of merciless pain to every corner of the ward. In general wards thin curtains only separate the patience yet they are connected, connected through tribulations, plight and fear of losing the battle.

Smile Please…it Matters

Smile Please…it Matters

He was there like a rock, ready to give tough time to one and all. Even the splashes from the open lane after the rubber and rubble rumbled with filth hardly hampered his hanging around. His shoulders like his broad forehead had a verse of old bard well preserved. Between those lanes of the past, […]

Graves too speak

Graves too speak

Graves too speak; all you need is to appreciate the metaphor of death. These graves are homes-eternal couches on which our malevolence, mundanity and acquisitiveness are operated upon to feed micro populace not easy to detect by naked eye.  Just after the invasion, one enters into a micro phase of life. A phase one never […]

Khaliq Kaka

Khaliq Kaka

As usual he banged the door so early to deliver the morning bread. Birds by the farthest casualness might forget to chirrup, but Khaliq Kaka would never fail to remember knocking at the doors early morning. At times his banging serves like morning news authenticating that the rest is alright outside.  The day he knocks […]

State of gloom

State of gloom

Hope is a gateway to contentment

From the clouds who shall come to life you up, waiting for the shadow better than breaking it. Nothing was apt to create excitement, no innovative joke, no thrill to surprise, no gesture to lure, nothing at all was working to make my colleagues to laugh, even lifeless chairs and boring tables couldn’t help to […]
