Memories at an unshared space..continued...

Continued from page 1 ....

We all have it in us, to take each day and relationship for granted, to be rest assured that tomorrow would be good.

Tuesday morning, 11’o clock, and I am in my car and trying to overreach the traffic light at Delhi. I was totally irritated for being stranded in traffic for over twenty minutes and finally decided to get out of the car.

Frustrated, I banged the car door and started walking. After sometime, I saw many people being gathered around something. I went ahead, to see what had happened. There was a Toyota Innova that had hit someone.

Pools of blood had been scattered everywhere and I fret at the sight. I went closer, and my breath went away for a minute. Regaining consciousness, I went right near the person and touched her face. I didn’t know what I was doing. To my surprise, it was the same person Vandana, this time pregnant and hit badly.

Passers by commented that she was a beggar somewhere; some said she had fled from the mental asylum. Only, I stood numb.

The body that fluttered her eyes and once spoke to me had now died. Ambulances and police vans clustered around a corner of a road. And I stood, deep in gaze and thought, looking at her in silence.

We leave him there.

in deep thoughts...

Love is infinite...

It is only us (human beings) who were gifted with such blessing yet we let our weaknesses and failures overcome us that lead us not to sustain it and declare it as cursed.

Your writings never fail to bring me into another dimension of thinking...Thank you.
