JUST A BIT OF FICTION

NOTE: Well this post just came to my mind, it is not an issue related to India. It is first in the series, which I will continue in my posts from time to time. The series is called Just A Bit of Fiction. Here it goes............

DELIVERED:

There was a long journey.............................. And then there was life.................


I have been here for so many long and dark uncomfortable days that I have lost count. I have been trying to break through this place for a long time. Nothing seems to work.

Since I came to my senses I have been trapped here, have nothing else to do but think. I have no idea what is happening to me. Off late things are getting really uncomfortable here it just seems that this place is getting smaller and smaller and the walls are closing in..................

I have been hearing a lot of noise outside there seems to be a lot of movement going on. Things are really getting stuffy here now. This torture is just going on and on and I do not know why. But I am sure of one thing, something is going to happen soon......

There is a lot of shouting and crying outside I do not know what is in store for me next......

I just started slipping, I do not know what is going on, It feels as if some force is pushing me, I don't know what is going to happen to me now, I do not know where I am going. This is terrible, people are shouting outside. They must have found a new way to torture me. There seems to be some small light coming at some distance. I am very scared............

I do not have any covering on me. There is a shortage of air and I am not able to breathe properly. There is a blinding light, its just too bright here, I am not able to open my eyes. Last when I opened my eyes I saw a large green man shouting something in a different language, I was unable to understand it.......

I cannot talk to these people, I tried but they do not understand. I am still not able to breathe properly, this is terrible. This is really tough I feel like crying and shouting just to make them understand that I am in pain............

They have already cut a body part of mine, I seem to be getting numb........

I have been tied upside down and I feel as if someone is hitting me on my rear, it pains, I do not understand what these people are up to, I am still not able to breathe....

I cannot bear it any longer I am going to shout and cry may be then they will be able to understand what I am going through and then may be they will stop this torture and this screaming..........

I am getting used to this light, I am able to open my eyes slightly now.................


Such might be the thoughts of a new born just before birth.........

All the people seem to be really happy, there are people covered in green around me. A big guy is coming towards me. He just picked me up and is now taking me towards another person with longer hair. They both seem to be really happy. I cannot decipher what they are talking but they seem to be pointing at each other and saying something. They are repeating the words "mom" and "dad" again and again, may be their names are mom and dad, these are weird people with weird names. The person with the longer hair is holding me really nicely, I almost feel comfortable with her. This might not be as bad as I thought but I will give it a little more time. They both are now looking at me and again and again saying a word, its difficult to make out. The word is girl.................

May be my name is girl. My name seems to be as weird as their's. May be I am one of them only.......................

Wow! Amazing concept really! I got caught up in the cord... they had to operate to free me... 15 days premature! I'm told I'd turned all blue & had almost suffocated to death! Wonder what went on in my mind back then...

You know what kaddu I love this post of mine I think it is one of the most creative things that I ever thought of.
Wow! that must have been some experience... Though you might have thought that you got oxidized or something or felt like you were jaddu... (hazam nahin hua na, me neither)
Well its great that you din't suffocate though :)...
