TOP 4 STORIES

Drowning

Anuraag Lakshmanan

There was no sign of him. Later, they found an empty bottle of his preferred choice of alcohol on the beach. They surmised he had drowned himself, tired of trying to drown his sorrows in alcohol. Saved them the trouble of organising his funeral. Who would've bothered coming?

The Ultimate Desolation

Shruti Rao

Lying alone, on the golden grains of the land, he looked up at the vibrant colors that had filled the canvas of the sky. The pale glow of the moon had begun to show, leaving him in a state of melancholy. ''Happy anniversary, love!!'' ''See, I kept my promise of celebrating our 1st anniversary at the seashore," exclaimed Hari, looking at the picture of his deceased wife, Lata. (''I wished you had listened to me and driven slow on that unfortunate night.") The jukebox played, ''An empty bottle, a broken heart, and you're still on my mind..."

Father

Mohan Subramaniam

Same spot. Same time. Same rag-tag khaki trousers and white shirt. Dripping nose. Intent face. Gazing straight ahead at the ocean, he could see a few catamarans riding the waves and struggling to cross over to the placid deep. No returning boat. Two hours passed. He turned back and started walking away. He knew that his father would return some day. Till then, the brandy bottle he emptied and threw away before he sailed off would remain on the same spot. No wave would touch it, nor would any beach urchin. That day would come. He would wait.

Imagination 101

Sumaiya Hossain Lia

"Imagine we are not on our honeymoon, we are Jack and Rose, and both of us were saved from the Titanic," said Nihal. Nitu laughed hard and said, "You have taken your imagination to another level!" Nihal said, “Come on, I love you more than Jack, okay my Rose?" Nitu looked into his eyes that were telling the truth. Nihal held Nitu's hand and ran to the seashore. "What's this?" Nitu said. "Wait," Nihal said and opened the bottle. "THERE’S A MESSAGE!" they screamed! They started to read. “Help! we are stuck on an Island. From Jack and Rose.”
