100 word fiction: The wax figures..

The wax figures

PHOTO PROMPT © Liz Young

A wax museum in the sleepy town of Troddle had risen to prominence courtesy George, one of it’s residents. His museum had figures of famous people from around the town and the cities nearby.

His work was so good that almost all the wax figures actually seemed like real people.

But no one ever knew the secret of his work until the death of his fiancee opened a can of worms.

The police who were already on the search for a number of abductions found that George killed people for money and then turned their dead bodies into wax figures.

100 word fiction

“You need to have the courage to follow your dreams and climb the steps to your goal. You can crib all day long about what you don’t have. Or instead, you can pursue your dream and live life on your own terms. It’s your choice.”

In a country without a history of fencing, Malti had carved out a niche for herself by winning numerous tournaments. And now, she had to move out of India for a few years to train and realize her dream of representing the country.

She knew that it was time to take the leap of faith.

Stockholm Diaries: Landing at Arlanda Airport

Landing at the Arlanda Airport

The Nordics (Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Denmark) have been in my bucket list since the time I can remember. The quality of life, the natural beauty, the helpful people have for long attracted millions of tourists as well as immigrants for years.

Landing at the Arlanda Airport

One would usually expect a lot of snow while landing in Stockholm in the peak of winter. But as is the case with the rest of the planet these days, (global warming et all), the day we landed it was just 0 degrees. From high up above, we could see patches of snow, but there was nothing to be too alarmed about.

Skywatch Friday – View from Helgeandsholmen Island, Stockholm

Helgeandsholmen Island in Stockholm

Dusk falls over Stockholm on a cold winter day..

“The light is amber, the air still; the daylilies have folded in on themselves. Soon, the hooded blue of dusk will fall, followed by the darkness of night and the sky writing of the stars, indecipherable to us mortals, despite our attempts to force narrative upon them.”

New Year 2014 in Singapore

New Year 2014 Singapore

Singapore is regarded as one of the most dynamic cities on the planet. It is at the crossroads between Asia and Europe. Despite its small size, Singapore has for long been a strong business and tourist hub. And so when I got a chance to experience the feeling of ringing in the New Year 2014 in Singapore with a lot of fireworks and celebrations, I was quite excited.

Skywatch Friday – Nightfall at Kite Beach

Skywatch Friday - Nightfall at Kite Beach

“As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight when everything remains seemingly unchanged. And it is in such twilight that we all must be most aware of change in the air – however slight – lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness.”

Ayodhya Day Trip

Ayodhya Day Trip: On National Highway 28

On National Highway 28 from Lucknow to Ayodhya

Ayodhya is regarded one of the holiest towns for Hindus. It is the birthplace of Lord Rama and the epic Ramayana was also based here. Though I had visited the town more than 20 years back, I didn’t really remember much And so, when another chance for a day trip to Ayodhya came along, I was quite excited.

Ayodhya is about 134km from Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh (one of India’s largest states) and can be reached in around 2.5 hours by the National Highway 28. Though its a highway, the roads have a lot of patchwork in many places and that’s quite a disappointment to be honest. While potholes in cities are the norm, I wasn’t expecting a bit of a rough ride on the National Highway of all the places.

Our first stop was the Hanuman Garhi which is a temple of Lord Hanuman. You need to climb about 70 steps to reach the top and so I am sure this may not be everyone’s cup of tea. The temple’s architecture and the different colours used are wonderful.

The darkest day of her life…

Sexual Assault: Darkest day of her life

That had to be the darkest day of her life.

That was the day when she was told that she needed to dress in a certain way to protect herself.

That was the day when she felt naked despite being fully clothed.

That was the day when she saw a mob of hungry men on the prowl for their prey.

That was the day when she saw people recording videos of assaults rather than helping the victims.

That was the day when she wished every mother had taught her son to respect women.

That was the day when she realized that we have regressed as a society.
