Ek Kissa..


Here I am completing the fourth task of the ‘Incredible Blogger Marathon Challenge’ called Hunt a Haiku. For this, I have written a reminiscential episode in Hindi based on the haiku I chose.

The challenge goes like this:

Given to you are five haiku’s. Pick any one and write your interpretation to it. You can build a story and make the haiku part of it. You can continue the haiku and make another poem out of it. Let the creativity wander and hunt it down the way you want.

I chose Haiku 02, which is: 

the sun will set slow
people go home for shelter
sun will rise again

Interpretation: To me, the haiku suggests how monotonous and mechanical our lives have become today. Each morning we get up, sprint to our work places and then after another hectic day, retreat to our homes, complete many house hold tasks, eat and sleep only to get up the next day, and repeat the same routine like a clockwork mouse. The zeal with which the work and life was earlier lived is lost somewhere in this race against time. This way of life has become so deeply rooted in our minds that we do not even notice how far we keep sinking into this rut, ignoring our body, health and relationships. 

My story for this challenge is based in the above theme, poignantly highlighting the eye-opening meet of the protagonist with herself and her relationships. Hope you will be able to relate with the emotions and experiences she goes through, in my first writeup in Hindi 🙂 Read More
