Invitation that served but none

Invitation that served but none

How implausible! A Dove gets incitement from the Jungle Crows.  Colours matter not! Maybe and may not be. I cannot judge for being colour blind for few reasons. To me, all the birds on the soil look alike. But under the canopy of azure vast, they bring into being their bona fide facade.  Truly so, […]

By All Appearances

By All Appearances

Chalk is poles apart from cheese, so is a politician from a polite man. The finesse of a politician is no match with tosh polite man. His politeness is just a bogey that drags him out to face the polished politician. Prudent is a politician for his electoral subjects. But his blood brimmed goblets serve […]

ALICE IN WASTELAND 

ALICE IN WASTELAND 

Alice put on a brave face after she was shaken by recent development in the Wonderland, where politics and religion are forcibly married in a Church governed by atrocities, aided with irrational and monotonous monologues.  This new vanguard in disguise promotes nationalism in its galvanized form.  This development to Alice seems a pulsating irritation.

Graves have no grievances

Graves have no grievances

In this Part of the world where silence is a common narrative and unidentified graves, the hotcakes for the foreign media to sell, where shoulders of brave fathers shall never be aided for they carried on them their future. Our graveyards are no more scary but little shrines were parents offer roses to their sleeping […]

The Pomegranate Grains

The Pomegranate Grains

Out-of-the-way and decomposed, making the plate to […]

Approval

Approval

In that decent pretence in comity, he offered her a mug of coffee. Her tacit finesse by some reason in good-will her hand reached for the mug. Nothing, surely nothing like verbal exchange save a rudimentary smile bothered the quiet of the waiting room. Cutting all the excuses short, she passed a prudent smile just […]

Burden

Burden

The morning sun invited one and all, for its face was slowly pushing the long veils of mist beyond the mountain tops. The appeal of the vast Blue was afar to be described in words. It was an unadulterated sensation of enchantment. “Get up boy”, the shepherd shouted. Rubbing his dreamy eyes, the boy half-heartedly […]

Might is right

Might is right

Counsel me this time if I am wrong which in most of the cases oblige me to be a part of the boring witness box. Not as a criminal, but as a victim of variations. I often make out that I might land in trouble, but often my disagreement with the masses salt away my […]

From Ayesha’s Diary

The eagles up above the world of men were whirling. No, not in the manner a dervish circumambulates. The whirl was massive. All the eagles following the instructions were creating the ferocious circle in the backyard were on the beds of Gillsar dwellers usually dump their filth. Ayesha lifted her head from the pillow and […]

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 […]
