The rain came as a saving grace to hide my tears.
Surprisingly tears stopped.
I started enjoying the rain instead.
‘Life shouldn’t change with someone’s rejection.’
I phoned him,
“Go to hell.”
Some of you may die, but that’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make.
“Some of you may die, but that’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make in the name of almighty God, for a great cause.
”Words reverberated in the big underground room full of unhealthy-looking guys.
Their eyes as if under the influence of drugs, showed no emotions, almost vacant eyes.
Their mentor with well-oiled mane peeping out from the headgear, well-groomed beard, rosy fully nourished skin and checks, eyes full of greed, lust and arrogance, and protruding belly, was looking fully content with life.
He barked again-
“You are the chosen ones by the great almighty to spread his message in this world. You are to eliminate those impudent non-believers of our faith by sacrificing yourself. I understand you have no regret in selecting this path. Your families will be fully compensated. I hope everything is clear about what is expected of you all.”
There were murmurs of meek acknowledgment.
They knew death was awaiting them either way.
What more can the poor kids do?
Though sometimes, when sober, they thought of asking their mentors, why they or their relatives did not accomplish the mission themselves and go to heaven.
They lack the guts to ask when a hefty sum was given to their parents to buy their loyalty.
They summoned all their courage to trigger the invisible explosive device wrapped around their waist when the time comes.
I’m taking a slight detour from the usual method of concocting prompts.
I used an online prompt generator, and found four interesting sentences.
- I’m going to defeat you with the power of friendship! … And this knife I found.

- Some of you may die, but that’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make.

Jhoothi shan ke dam per jeene wale,
Jindagy ki sadgi ko Kaise samjhenge!
Jhuthi taaliyon per khush hone wale,
Dil se nikli duaon ko kya samjhenge!!
Jinki jindagy kat gai dikhawa Karne me,
Vo dil ki gehraiyon ko kya samjhenge!
Koi samjhana chah ke bhi na smajha paega,
Vo rishton ki názakat ko kya samjhenge!!
People living on false pride,
Can’t understand the simplicity of life!
Those who rejoice in false bottoms,
Can’t understand the prayers coming from the heart!!
Those who spent life in show off,
They can’t understand the depth of heart!
No one will be able to explain them,
They can’t understand the fragility of relations!!
As an adult, we lack the excitement we felt in childhood
Whatever we collected on the sea beach was our treasure
With age comes the wisdom of valuing everything by its cost
