Punishment

Punishment

Drooped neck coiled behind the iron bars, Danish was down like an inert stack. His limbs like his bald head were portraying nothing__Nothing momentous.  A monotonous look of his bald head held between those frail arms appeared cemented and controlled.  His neck was naked like a freshly ravished hilltop after a bombardment to yield minerals […]

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.

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.

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 […]
