TICKING BOMB

By Neel Anil Panicker

There he is, head straight, shoulders erect, legs parted, draped in olive green body suit, a bullet proof jacket wrapped his six foot frame taking over a third of his entire body weight.

He gazes at the rooftop building opposite the street; his fingers on the trigger of his Insas rifle.

It’s been six hours; there’s no sight of the bad guys.

Time ticks by. The body cries out for rest; the mind refuses to wilt, the senses dulled by the diktats of the job.

His superior’s words act as a tonic: “Pride and honour is what a soldier fights for”.
