A C R O S T I C



As I was walking ,
Choosing the hues of life,
Rainclouds made an appearance
On the sunny sky above.
Scuttling through untrodden paths,
The narrow bylanes,not a soul around,
I was indeed lost - Drops of rain
Chased me - but Ahoy! a way was found.

P.S. :My first attempt on acrostic poetry.Hope my readers will like it. To know more about acrostics,click the link given.

Fake encounters and disappearances make headlines.  At times, it is a case of mistaken identity. Violence in Jammu and Kashmir has increased since implementation of AFSPA in 1990. Similar incidents are reported from the north-eastern states. 
Jeevan Reddy Commission (2005) had recommended repealing AFSPA and bringing a humanitarian law in place. However, no concrete steps have been taken by th…

77 FICTION : TEAR FILLED EYES

Nobody came.  She grew up, rimmed her eyes with kohl. But they could never hide her tears.
No one came when her soul was ripped apart. No one heard her cries. No one mourned her loss.
After  a while, she thought that tears were a part of the eyes.
