Legacy ( Flash Fiction)

Image
The thunderous applause in the hall refused to die long after she had reached the center stage. She had recently won the Booker Prize for her recent book, one of the many that she kept winning on and off. The emcee asked her suddenly, “You are going to celebrate your 55th birthday next month. We are happy to have witnessed you but are sad that your legacy will end with you.”

The Guilt ( Flash Fiction)

Image
Jagdish returns from work early that day. He sits on the cot unlike his daily habit of going for a bath. His wife Santosh looks at him inquiringly if he is unwell or something. He replies, “I am just tired, need some rest.” He lies down on the bed and tries to close his eyes but the happenings of the day don't leave his mind. The faint image of that woman clutching his feet, begging him to not do it is still so clearly etched in his mind. He had never felt so helpless. There was nothing he could do except just execute his duty.

The world could never understand a word of what she said. Her lisp camouflaging her expressions every single time.

Unanswered (55 fiction)

Though she had answers to almost every stupid question of his, “Some questions in life are better left unanswered!” was her favourite answer. It always managed to bring a twinkle to her eyes. Till one day he asked her, “Would you believe me if I were to say I love you?” and she never answered.

The Delay (55 fiction)

She re-read the letter before collapsing on the floor. After decades she had finally managed to write a letter to her father seeking forgiveness and accepting that running away from home was her worst mistake. The letter had come back, unopened. With only one change in it, late had been added before the addressee’s name.

Drought (55 Fiction)

Image
A single tear hung on her eye lashes, unaware about the avalanche that was about to follow. It hurt but it was better to be raped every night and still be alive rather than be hungry and dead. She suppressed her sobs, the drought that had hit her village had to reach her eyes too.

Q & A ( 55 fiction)

Image
You + Me = Forever!” he would say and kiss my forehead. I would blush dreaming of the beautiful tomorrows and nod. Holding hands, madly in love the world seemed perfect. Perfectly eternal forever we still are but whether he meant together or apart is a question I am still looking for an answer to.
