The sea always enchanted me…the unending wide sheet of blue water creased by the waves and life…fastened to the clouds at the other end…
The golden sand , the fuzzy foam stitched at the ends of the waves , and the ‘keep’ of the sea ..Sun..spending each night in it’s mighty embrace… I loved ‘em all…It was near the sea where I grew up…frolicked around…lived a LIFE

But now things have not been the same for the last three months. Many of our neighbors started to disappear suspiciously…most of them were last seen in the sea ppl say…but How can a sea as serene as this , engulf it’s own children ; that was my point…Our family moved to some other beach side locality as several others did…The ones who disappeared never returned to tell their tale…

I continued to play with the waves and smell the sand…..

Now I know where all those neighbors ended up , As I recollect these golden memories being caught in a net myself. I’ll also be served dead on a platter with spices in some oriental restaurant.
Life’s not too good being a crab , seriously.


15 Mirch lagi kya?? paani piyo yaha..

I din't leave any comments on your earlier posts coz i don't think am worthy enough to comment on your writing.
But i can't stop maself further. So, here goes my first official comment on your work.
The deception till the end and a dextreously crafted ending:
"being caught in a net myself. I’ll also be served dead on a platter with spices in some oriental restaurant".
Thatz ur real metier. Thatz something which keeps every reader glued till the end. you have a huge talent buddy. Juz try implementing it on a wider spectrum. Am sure u gonna make it big in this field. All the best.

Very nicely expressed. My wife's sister and her family live by the Juhu beach in Bombay and are always apprehensive during high tides. There is a saying,"Those who live by the sword ....." similar for sea?
