A Silver Lining
By Neel Anil Panicker
An exasperated Raghav stomped out of the room, slamming the door shut, striding like a raging bull towards the balcony.
There, as the cold blast of the nightly air blew in from the sea, he arched his head upwards towards the sky.
Something that he always did; the sky being his blanket, his guardian angel, omniscient and ever protective.
He needed its solace, especially now, when his mind was a maze, fast spiralling into the dark dungeons of uncertainty.
His eyes scanned the blue swathe above him. The cold grey sky seemed un-obliging; a tumultuous, ragged cloud that bellowed and thundered; a precursor to dust storms, lightning and torrential rains.
Unfazed, Raghav kept the faith amidst the howling of the winds, the flashes of forked lightning and the persistent claps of thunder.
His efforts paid off, as miraculously the skies changed hue, the clouds bid adieu, and as if on cue, the stratosphere lit up a bright red.
And with that realisation dawned__Sheena was right, he was wrong.
He turned back, pledging to make amends.
