....and the world was silent again

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 35; the thirty-fifth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for the month is "...and the world was silent again"



She could hear the continuous honking , the rush and commotion at the station, the noise at the market place. She could hear people screaming for help.

She woke up with a start and looked around to see her husband gesturing with his hands. She smiled back at him … and the world was silent again.

  5. I read the 55-er, and I read your About Me. If this is how you share your thoughts, then I've to say, you are making it tough to understand the myriad dimensions to your self! :O
    LOL.

    Anyway, I like this story, really like it. For the simple reason that you let the reader's imagination 'play' itself 'out'.

  11. A very paradoxical expression of life in such crisp, forceful sentences. Needs a lot of thought. Excellent.

  12. I read thrice and came up with multiple versions, none that I am confident of.
    -she was sleeping?
    -she was in a crowded market place?
    -she was in a small accident.. but her husband was there to comfort her?
    -there was some sort of panic.. but she felt good on seeing her husband.

    OMG. I feel stupid ;p But I know you will pardon me. but kindly direct me.

  17. It was 'As You Like It' kind of write up. But you managed to surprise your readers.

  18. Read it twice. But not sure whether I have 'understood' it! The story remains 'silent' for me! :-)

  19. oh! That was a sad but unexpected ending. Actually it was very emotional too. Sometimes, few written words make more impact than an essay.
