Compassion

Rioters burned the tailor’s shop. It was opposite to our house.

When the curfew was lifted, he came and sat down in despair on seeing the ramshackle shop.

Mother called him and offered him our old singer machine for the time he could buy his own.

He was thankful and offered to stitch our clothes for free.

 The mother strongly rejected the idea.

‘You need money to buy a new machine. So start your business first and save money.’

Mother was a conservative Hindu and the tailor was a Muslim. 

Mother sowed a seed of compassion, for everyone, in me that day.

SCHOOL BELL

Non fiction

Word count – 107

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)

Five Sentence Fiction – Clutch

Five Sentence Fiction – Clutch

 

  First Encounter

My six years old brother clutched my hand tightly and pleaded ‘ don’t go to office princess’, he was fourteen years younger than I, born with Down ’s syndrome was, he has the wisdom of a three-year-old child, he always wanted me to stay at home.

He was very affectionate, loving and caring, always called me a princess, I do not know why and I always agreed to stay in spite of my boss getting angry with me, sometimes he even taunted me to leave the job and stay at home, I knew he was right but have no heart to say no to my brother.

I agreed, spent the day with him, took him for a walk in the evening, then told him a story at bedtime and he slept.

 After few days he met with an accident, though it was just a mild push by his elder brother’s bicycle he became very uneasy, we rushed him to the hospital where doctors said it is a brain hemorrhage and he cannot survive and had only 48 hours to live.

Sitting by his bedside, I watched him slowly succumbing to his injury, second by second lights going out of his eyes, skin becoming dull every minute, next day he was gone, without giving us time to do something for him,  this was my first encounter with death, which is embedded in my mind till now.
