DREAM OR NIGHTMARE?

three line tales week 96: an Iceland pony in the snow

By Neel Anil Panicker

Liza woke up in a daze, her mind unable to shake off the bizarre visions of a snowy white pony left out in the frosty high hills, its eyes frightened to death and weeping copious tears.

It was D-Day, the day when Ali would be in court, the day when all that she had worked towards must come to fruition, the day that would change her destiny __ hers and Ali’s .

Getting out of the bed, she walked towards the bathroom wondering whether the half formed dream was some sort of a subtle indicator,  an apocalyptic vision of how things would pan out in the hours to follow? Hunter, prey, or bait? What was it? And who was whom?

SIMPLY HORSING AROUND 

three line tales week 95: cowboys down under because the first Ashes test starts today

By Neel Anil Panicker 

Dawn’s misty air languorously gave way as the sun made its presence felt through the dense foliage lighting up the zigzagged path ahead as the three outlaws rode astride their fine horses, blissfully unaware of the danger that lurked ahead.

Within no time they were out of the woods but before they could ferret out the speedboat from its usual hiding place behind the jagged creek, a spatter of gunshots sprang all around them.

“It’s over,” hissed Steve to his fellow brigands as he made out the silhouette of the police chief forming shape from among the jacaranda tree branches.

SINKING IN

By Neel Anil Panicker

I wake up groggy eyed; last night’s indulgences stare down at me, half mocking, half pitying, unspooling in slow motion the debauchery of soiled existences.

 

The passion soaked proclamations of undying love; the neatly worded trope of cast iron truths; the early morning endlessly long surreal walks along barrens beaches; the midnight wanderings into the other’s heart and soul__all these and then some more eventually turn into deathly tombstones of that eternal falsehood called first love.

 

It takes time to sink in; by the time reality hits, you and everything around you has turned into a flotilla of orphaned memories.

A MILLIONS CRIES IN THE DARK

3LineTales

Neel Anil Panicker

There they stood, lighted candles in their hands, alongside a million others of their ilk, all standing up for once and voicing their opinions, speaking out against what they thought and felt was wrong and went against the tenets of natural order and justice.

All night long they kept vigil, shouting themselves hoarse, alternatively pleaded, cajoled, harangued, insinuated, hurled invectives, threatened, begged…did everything that was in their command to try and convince the powers that be to step down from their high horses, to peep out of their ivory towers and cast a sympathetic eye towards the havoc their life threatening policies have wrecked.

Alas! It was not to be. Centuries of flapping around in the rarefied waters of omnipotent power had made them all expert swimmers, drunk to their gills as the heady waves of unbridled power swept them higher and higher, far away from the very toiling masses whose dreams and wishes they had not very long vowed to fulfill but now so cruelly roughshod over.

BIG GAME HUNTING

(part 27 of ‘A Dangerous Love’)

By Neel Anil Panicker

As the paperweight swirled around the table top, Inspector Sharma went over his meeting with Lisa. She had disclosed to him her apprehensions. “Sir, I’m dead sure they are planning to kill both Ali and me. And it’s going to happen tomorrow__either within or around the court premises.”

The wily cop closed his eyes; a visual from a National Geographic episode that he had watched not so long ago came alive. A falcon swooped down on a hapless pigeon. The bird hunter smiled from a distance as his prey flapped her wings around desperately inside an unseen netted cage.

Afzal Guru, the mafia don; Lisa, his daughter; Ali, her lover; Sharma, the cop; the characters were in place, their props hunter, prey, bait in place. It was only a matter of figuring out who was playing what role.

three line tales week 90: New York subway

By Neel Anil Panicker

They move back and forth, in and out, carrying life’s myriad baggages, the flotsam and jetsam of life; their jagged expressions betraying the mundaneness of their non-existent lives.

Dragging my heavily strapped feet, I slither past them, wearing my usual smug smile that today betrays a slight tinge of arrogance, for a change, basking in the reflected glory that my self deprecating anonymity provides.

I sight them, perennially anxious men, women, children and the not yet borns, skirting, jostling, nudging, heckling and hacking their way through life’s parallel tracks, the sound systems above the din and the roar proclaiming their impending status simply as arrivals and departures, unknowing to the omnipotent reality that their fates have long been sealed inside the small little button that awaits my command.

NAILING IT

three line tales week 89: this is the sign you've been looking for

By Neel Anil Panicker

The lone occupant inside the white Ambassador car that was trailing the unmarked police jeep as it entered the bylanes of Mayapuri Industrial Area was no ordinary man_ seated behind the wheel, his hands drumming into the velvety cushions was none other than Afzal Guru, the most feared mafia don of Old Delhi himself.

The jeep cruised to a halt near an abandoned factory wall; within seconds a figure slipped out of the shadows, and walked towards the driver’s seat.

A mere fifty metres away, peering through the windshield, Afzal Guru watched the woman as she, first nodded and then shook hands with his bete noire Inspector Sharma, Special Crime Branch, Delhi Police. It was all the proof he ever needed against Liza, his own daughter.
