Cry of a Beheaded Girl

"Mommy, please stop crying.”

"Who's crying dear? I'm not."

Mommy, you can't hide those unshed tears from me.”

"Why cry mommy, i am really happy out here."

"What with angels and archangels singing and dancing with me all the time.”

"Really, mommy, it's so beautiful out here."

"When they snatched me away from you, I was terrified."

"My shrieks were stifled, muffled cries overlooked."

"My hunger become a source of their smiles".

"Finally when they had knife at my neck, I become paralyzed";

"Paralyzed with fear."

"I knew it would pain bad and hard."

"But once they started, I thought of you."

"And I cried out for you and you alone."

"Then it was over."

"Blood swept the floors, but my blood in their hands became a

source of their smiles."

"Yes, my stay with them was painful to the core."

"But, thankfully no more."

"Jesus and Mary along with archangels are showering happiness on me now."

"I've physical pains no more."

"But what still tugs my heart are those thousand innocents still captive and don't know what fate has in-store for them."

The Story Of A Designer Diya

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 43; the forty-third edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. 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…

7 Bloggers Who Were The Wind Beneath My Wings!

A super short post: yes, I had reserved it for the final day.
For various reasons, one being sounding sycophant, I was wary of writing this post. But after reading, “Don’t Think of the Blue Ball” by Malati Bhojwani (as part of readerscosmos review), I knew in my hearts of hearts that what I am doing was right. Yes, the book pumped me up so much!
The premise of the book is quite promising. It talks about gratitude, thankfulness and appreciation for people around you. In fact, the author suggests readers to maintain a Daily Gratitude Journal, wherein they should thank all the people who helped them during the day. (Sadly though, am yet to come up with such a journal.) 

So much for the greatness of the book. Honestly, I always wished to thank many bloggers promptly and profoundly for visiting my small space for these last seven days (well, almost), by replying to their priceless comments, but I admit, I've miserably failed to do so. Time constraints…hope you understand. So, here I a…
