As a school bell I’ve shared so many events, good, bad, enjoyable or despicable.

I regret that I cannot express myself when I’m happy; give rewards, or give evidence when watch a crime being committed, like the last time when the eve teasers forced their way to a girl’s class, ousted everyone, poured kerosene on her and set her on fire and ran away, just because her father dared to report against them to the police. Whole school watched with horror but no one had the courage to testify against the scoundrels.

Alas! I just hanged there as a mute spectator.

(Based on a true incident)


About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing thought, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  1. Good story but very sad. It’s all too true that such sickening things are happening in the world.

  2. Eerie story, interesting perspective. One question: You are talking about the murder of a little girl, I think, but you mention “his” father. This confused me a little.

    All my best,

    • I’m so sorry if this is confusing. Actually i tried to sum up every thing in 100 words. Its a real incident happened in my town in India. The eve teasers were miffed because girl’s father reported to police, police gave them some threshing and warning. They took revenge in this manner. So much atrocities are going against women in some parts all are not even reported.

      • I was just confused by “his father.” I thought it might have just been a typo. 🙂 Thanks for clarifying.

        Yes, crimes against women that aren’t prosecuted need to have a bright light shined upon them.


    • Thanks a lot for pointing out the mistake, it’s ‘ her father’


  3. Good story but I’m saddened to hear it was based on a true story. People can be so terrible.



  4. Every People have evil spirits sprinkled in with the good. I was raised in the South, and saw a lot of injustice growing up. Your story was very sad but if it isn’t said, then people will forget and the memory of the horror will fade. Great story! Thanks, Nan


  5. Dear Indira,

    I hated to click the like button. This story is horrible in its truth. Well done. Lest we forget or turn our heads pretending we don’t see.




    • I can understand Rochelle dear. Things are changing but women still suffer discrimination in some countries.
      Thanks for visit and comment. Shalom.


  6. I loved the idea that you used the pov of the bell-an inanimate object to highlight the plight of women -wonderful idea Indira-well done!


  7. Sad story. Well written from the bell’s perspective.
    How sad that it is based on a true incident…


  8. This is a very powerful story. I agree with Atreyee, writing from the POV of the bell is very clever.


    • Thanks dear. The saddest part is that its true and the whole city watched just like the bell. Nowadays its different people are raising voice thankfully.



I would love to hear from you
