The View...

He never had such a view of the city.

So bright even at midnight.

There was a certain charm - the sea, the high-rises, even the stray dogs.

All very peculiar to Mumbai, he thought.

Suddenly he heard the sirens and sighed... cavalry had arrived.

He knew it was time to get down the pipe.








This is a part of the 55-word story tag passed on by Apoo

This post has nothing to do with Bird or The Piping… but then there are traces of it here… now I tag myself to read this… and try and make sense…


Anyone can take this up... its fun :)

Lol Iyer...putting down a real life incident is a narrative, not a story...write another one!!!

Jokes apart, there was something nearly poetic here. Nice change from your humourous posts.

i am not a thief... it is bird who does the climbing on pipes... thank you for recognizing the non humour inside that... i also had written another one... here it is...

All that he ever wanted was to be understood…
And he got just that…
He stood under everyone who passed by him;
Stamping him – crushing him – smashing him…
Now he wants to be miss-conceived ;)
