By Neel Anil Panicker

It was his road map. Without it he was lost; like a duck out of water.
With one by his side, he felt like a king, almost empowered.

Books served as his enrichment; his intellectual succor that is.

A life without books he coudn’t fathom.

For this very reason he was chided too, even shouted at___by all, especially those who he knew, and that were quite a small number.

One was Ashni; his girlfriend, the girl he’d been living with for the past year.

Also, the one he’d decided to kill.

Sarthak felt no remorse when he thought about this.
