I knew it was my last day there

I knew it was my last day there.
I had enough of this office.
Damn with the paper work, damn with the boss, damn with the colleagues, damn with the place;
There’s was no sense of right and wrong here.

My lost faith restored; my self-worth resurrected.

The theme for the month is "LIGHT" (Today, fifteen-years ago, Roshini had first lighted this antique designer diya at her dilapidated shanty. Today, fifteen-years after, Roshini is still excited about this old designer diya; and she’d once again light it up with all the energy and enthusiasm; but no, not at her shabby shanty.)                                         -----------------------------------

The designer diya was old, dull, dim and dinted. It lay there in the corner of the kitchen store room unwanted, uncared for amidst other regular diyas, half-burnt candles, unused rangoli colors, plastic thorans: all tightly tied-up and stored in a thick polythene bag.
Deepawali cleaning was going on in full swing; and for best reasons known to Reshma, my mai…
