Literature was not born the day when a boy crying “wolf, wolf” came running out of the Neanderthal valley with a big gray wolf at his heels: literature was born the day when a boy came crying “wolf, wolf” and there was no wolf behind him.

I Am Afraid To Write

FREE WRITING

//Writing, the sacred ritual of words, could awake a terror of wondering pen.
 -of binding its dreadful black ink into a splash of flawed work.
 -of breathing in the cold space of a defeated mind.

//Writing, the incomplete vocabulary of the world, has become heavier and stronger than my hands could lift.
  -has poisoned my meaning.
  -has crippled my courage-I made the world with.
 (The stable lands of my written-ruins are shrinking.)

//Writing, not the trembling wind that...

She Returns

PROMPT: Lens Change

She gazed around and saw the light beams gracefully melting on her

A Broken Toe

PROMPT: Sports Writing Competition 2021

Very expectedly, I got selected for the Taekwondo nationals. During my past two years of breaking down the wall of blood and sweat, I saw people worthy of being called a 'Guru' but who were rejected from even being accepted as a 'vidyarthi.' 
Why, I asked.
