A RECURRING IMAGE
By Neel Anil Panicker

The bike by the window?
Or, is it the window by the bike?
Either ways, it is an enduring image, a most enduring image that has become embedded in my memory long after I had hidden goodbye to my rollicking albeit tumultuous teenhood.

Rollicking because the kind of roller coaster ride those seven odd years have been is sheer magical and unforgettable.

And tumultuous, for those years, each spread out into months and days and hours and minutes and seconds have been so full of ups and downs, so full of happinesses and sorrows that one would be forgiven if one were to assume that such experiences were the preserve of those who have seen at least sixty summers.

And as for what exactly is the connection between the bike and the window?
Well, suffice to say, one doesn’t discuss in public matters involving a person’s faith, his debts, if any, and of course, his love life, if any.
