It all stopped at once…

As the hands moved on it’s own orbit, the minutes were passing one by one. Although, a week long was left, yet with every second, a storm was evolving. 

Something untouched, unfelt, unheard to be said….
And then it was, a whole span of 168 hours was on its last round, a catastrophic eruption was awaiting, 

the clock did hit it’s last minute.
And yes,




The clock is showing 1:47 now.

It is Diwali today, 

they say it is the festival of lights, yeah… maybe.. it is. The sky beyond that window is enlightenment with sky lanterns and the sparks of light every where.

    But… but how shall I celebrate diwali ?

Should I burn myself in the blazing flame of the diyas, or should I burst myself with the crackers tonight ?


I can do something too, I can fly away with the sky lanterns, in the high sky, unknown to the destination where it would land or just disappear silently. Atleast with it, I will be carried away with a gleam and not the darkness of the night.
When the world would be celebrating it’s festival, I will live my escape.
                                                 Good Night

Dark Night

Pressing them together, she strived to close. Suddenly the last night flung in front of her eyes being the worst nightmare she had ever seen.

She hurled down the bed, reaching up to the drawer, took out the hand written note.

Coming back to her bed, once again she struggled to sleep. Going through that wrinkled paper, she tried to close her eyes. Soon her vision blurred with tears.

“ And Tonight,

Finally she slept…. and never woke up again.”
