Five Sentence Fiction: Quest

Though he had seen a lot in his decade long career as a lawyer, he had always been relentless in his quest for the truth. But this case was about to test his limits considering the fact that it involved key members of a political party.

While he pursued the case with his usual passion and ferociousness, the threats to his family were increasing by the day. The more dirt he found, the more trouble loomed on the horizon for his family and friends.

And then, on judgement day, all hell broke loose as he realized that he would suffer for his actions for the rest of his life.

“You were the first person I had trusted in my life. I will never forgive you for the way you have stabbed me in my back.”

Rohan, a serial killer, had been on the run for many years. It was during this period that he came across Esha, a senior criminal lawyer who became his close confidant and he was sure that she could help him fight his case in court.

He had always felt that the authorities had wrongly framed him. But Esha soon realized the games he was playing and handed him over in the nick of time.

Book Review – Messiah of the Scarlet Silence

“Messiah of the Scarlet Silence” is Arun Chaturvedi’s first writing attempt. Interestingly this book is available only in very select bookstores across the country. Maybe the author decided that he wanted to see the crowd reaction before printing more copies. Nonetheless, I bought it because crime thrillers are something which greatly interest me. Does it work?

The blurb goes like this –

There has always been a conflict between justice as a temporary phenomenon meted through a procedure, and the eternal conscience embedded deep within every subconscious state. Justice delayed, or even denied has had reverberating repercussions prompting individuals to mete out justice in a manner they deem as justified.

Molestation and rapes are rampant, and very few woman get their true justice. Many shy away from the courts fearing the stigma as well as the caustic remarks from the society. The trauma is intensified in court when the accused defense attorney attempt at character assassination to belittle the victim or make the incident look like a consensual act. The outdated legalities and the legal process itself are too slow, while the punitive punishments hardly serve as deterrents.

In this fictional incident based at Mumbai, a young girl is raped and murdered. And extraordinary situation demands a different remedial, and down the line, a bereaved sympathizer is created, who takes on the role as the messiah of the silent death, the scarlet silence.

While the story remains focused primarily on the police, the plot weaves into place the role of the judiciary, media, politician, underworld, and the public. It questions the role of these external elements that transform an honest person into a hardened killer. It raises hard questions on a crime that is rampant and continues unabated. It speaks of the core of the system that needs to be transformed. By including factual incidents, readers can co – relate those with this story that links the facts and fiction, to give it a realistic dimension.
