RAY OF HOPE (genre: realistic fiction)
By Neel Anil Panicker
The shining black limousine skidded to a halt.
Out emerged the man the world knew as one having restored the soul back to music.
As the legend stepped out, a voice broke through the cacophony, “You shouldn’t play here”.
Stunned, the man shuffled his legs, rubbing long fingers over his silken red tie.
“Shouldn’t perform where Blacks aren’t allowed.”
A deafening silence followed.
Then, the maestro did the unthinkable.
He gingerly walked towards the crowd.
The next moment the masses had lifted him on their shoulders.
That night emerged a ‘Ray’ of bright light in a world coloured by hatred.
