Solitary

Solitary

Being the solitary one left near the neighbourhood after the week long tree-cutting drive, it felt lost. The city had burgeoned so much so that whatever was left of the greenery was being cut to make way for the giant new apartment complexes. Amidst all this, the tree felt like a lamb to the slaughter. Seeing the apartment complexes on one side and the solitary tree on the other was like seeing opposite worlds.

Din of screaming voices

The day was a disappointing experience. It all began downhill from the time he moved into the new place. While he knew that shifting to a new city was going to be tough, he had made peace with the fact that this would help him rise higher in his career based on how capable he was.

But his new neighbours didn’t make things any easier. They always seemed hysterical. From yelling at their house help to fighting with each other, it was a din of screaming voices.

He found that there is nothing behind the wall except a space where the wind whistles. And so he decided to ensure that the doors and windows are made soundproof. Once done, he was able to live a much calmer life free from the stream of noise he was forced to handle day in and day out.

The couple had finally decided to leave the city after dilly-dallying for months. While going to a smaller city meant lesser pay, they knew that the benefits outweighed the negatives.

Over the years, they had accumulated many things which had worn out and needed to be thrown away. But now the movers and packers weren’t doing a great job leaving the stuff lying on the road rather than in the bin.

They were looking forward to a life far away from the din of city life amidst the forests and next to the lake with the zephyr hitting their faces.

100 word fiction: City goes dark

100 word fiction: City goes dark

One by one the lights of the city block winked out, the dark coming ever closer. The cyclone had been barreling towards the city for the last couple of days and now that it was almost on the doorstep, the electricity had been cut off to avoid any unforeseen incidents.

The people had been exhausted as there had been one tragedy after another so much so that their being stuck home felt like being in a cage. While help was on the way, they felt that their lives were in a constant state of flux from one disaster to another.

He loved using coloured smoke as a background for his pictures. Once a month, he set out for his shoots to locations far away from the hustle and bustle of city life so that he got his space. But one day, after a brief interlude during the shoot, he noticed paranormal occurrences on his camera.

The aeroplane window is the perfect spot to see the world go by.

There’s so much you can see from the clouds to the lights of a magical city; from an aeroplane far away if you are lucky to even the sea.

It’s the perfect place on a plane if you want to go on a journey like no other.

“This city looks so beautiful from our balcony, doesn’t it? Look at the lovely cloud formations. Living at such a height definitely has it’s perks.”

Ronald had arrived in the city more than 2 years ago. But only now did he finally begin to admire the city he was living in. He had been so caught up in the rat race to achieve something that he never bothered to appreciate whatever life had to offer.

It was all about earning as much as you could in the shortest possible time. But now he had got another chance to cherish life’s gifts.

“How can they make you work such long hours under the scorching sun? This is totally inhumane.”

Raj had come over to the city with dreams of giving his family a better life in the village considering the salary he was being offered would help him enroll his children in the best of schools. But over the last year or two, the long hours under the extreme heat had taken a huge toll on his body and mind. Had he made the right choice?

A day to explore the town..

“All the streets are so empty and lonely. It seems as though the residents of this town have disappeared somewhere.” She exclaimed to her besties.

It was that time of the year when the people of Lanning, a town of just 400 people went to the nearby fair for a few days of fun and games. Sarah had kept this in mind while planning her backpacking trip to this quaint little town.

For her, such a day without any crowd was a day to freely explore the squares and the streets. She made it a point to keep her DSLR handy.

Do you have the ability to take up risks? Are you ready to face challenges of any kind head on? Are you courageous enough to take control of your life by not being dependent on others to take decisions for you? Being bold is all about taking the right decisions at the right time by thinking of the pros and cons. Some of these decisions may be perceived as risks by a lot many people. But if we are confident about what we are doing, we needn’t bother about the comments the others tend to pass at us. As a matter of fact, people around love to discourage those who have actually succeeded at what they aim for.
