ECHOES OF SILENCE




Ever since you went,
Choosing roses has been painful.
Hustling into an empty room,
Overcoming you is impossible.
Every evening I feel you’re
Singing me the tunes I so loved.

Often I see the bird you tamed,
Filling the air with rancour, just like you did.

Shadows of night soothe my wounds;
I still catch your glimpse in my dreams.
Loving you all over again,
Enraptured by your sweet nothings.
Nebulous memories keep me afloat,
Crushing all realities, I lie
Enamoured , smitten by our brief encounters
.

Military force is synonymous with fear, brutality and suspicion. The main reason behind this contradictory public image is the “draconian” law, Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act. It has vested the armed forces with absolute power mainly to aid fight against terrorism and insurgency. Several unprovoked arrests, tortures, rapes and deaths go unnoticed under the wraps of AFSPA.Unmarked graves have been found in the valley. 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

The eyes searched someone. The one she could run to at times of need. In someone’s lap, she would pour out all her troubles.
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.
