77 FICTION : A GIFT CALLED LIFE


She woke up. He was not in bed.The sheets were crumpled though.She could hear some noise from the kitchen.
As she got into her slippers, she remembered the last night.They read the book together and then laughed about it.He was all she thought of since the last three years.

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.
