The Terminal Incident

“Sir, there is an emergency at terminal 4. One of the cranes….” Madhav did not wait to hear the rest.

Grabbing his bright orange safety helmet, he darted out. He was a captain who believed in going down with his ship if it came to that.

Many employees were rushing towards terminal 4 and Madhav quickly joined them.

His eyes took a moment to understand the situation; workers in blue uniforms were thronging near a table, their expressions very sober.

On the table, he saw a cake with the words, Happy Birthday Madhav Sir.

A lone tear escaped his eyes.

Writing to me is therapy, it frightens and comforts at the same time. Liberates like nothing else. A book in my own name is a dream, but a bigger dream would be to write something that haunts the reader even after the last page is turned and the book is shut. I enjoy reading and music, spending time with family whilst battling my social awkwardness.
