Just A Thought

Little Mickie was with his best friend, Chickie. It was evening time and instead of playing cricket outside they were in his room playing Scotland Yard (a detective board game).

“Hey,” Mickie said, “yesterday I saw my dad shouting at grandpa.”

“Really? Your grandpa means your dad’s dad, right?

“Ya.”

“God! I don’t think I’ll ever be able to shout at my dad.”

“Same here. I couldn’t believe it.”

They continued with their game. Outside the room Mickie’s dad, sitting idly on the couch, happened to overhear the conversation. As a child even he used to shudder in front of his dad. Perhaps more than his own son did in front of him.

Looking out pensively at the evening Sun, through the window, he realized: nobody dares to eye a noon Sun. But when the Sun is half into the lap of horizon

A shadow of remorse, soon, blanketed his conscience.

Beautiful! You have so easily penned down a deep meaning. You have conveyed so much in between the lines. Good job! Your novel, A thing beyond forever' is really good. Esp. the last half of it was just beyond imagination.

Novoneel, I am currently reading your book 'A Thing Beyond Forever' and it is one of the most beautiful novels I possess. From Prologue to the Epilogue, every word is captivating & flawlessly crafted. I feel as though 'Section 3' has been penned down for me.
"What two people try to achieve in a marriage I have done that simply being in love with someone."
The book reminds me of Salman Rushdie's 'The Enchantress of Florence'; it is written in the same grand and mesmerizing style.

A Big Thank You for sharing your words :)

God Bless!!!

But when the Sun is half gone into the lap of horizon, only then it provides a soothing effect to the eyes, heart and mind. Isn't it??

P.S. I heard the reply I have posted above on some TV program a few years back.
