THE STORY OF RAEES
By Neel Anil Panicker
Through the fascinating station of life, two kinds of people whiz past__the ones who live on ground and the ones who lives underground.
Though polar opposites, each, ironically, feeds on the other for survival.
Those on the above forever strive to rise further above, driven as they are by a pathological fear of falling off and getting crushed into the underground by the crazy wheels of fate.
Those on the underground are desperate to crawl out of the dirty bowels of earth’s underbelly; to somehow shake off the debilitating stench of their squalid existences.
Raees belonged to this category. As early as when ten years old, he knew he had to somehow, anyhow, be a part of the above.
Two years later he committed his first murder; his first step towards realisation of that dream.
