The bride

As he approached the Dias, her heart almost skipped one beat. She lowered her gaze to avoid meeting his eyes.  A bizarre fear alarmed her. She felt very week, and tired.  

She could feel him advancing towards her. She silently wished to escape from the place, However that was the last thing a bride could imagine to happen at her wedding reception.

She heard him speak to her father, His giggle resonated a ruthless guffaw in her ears. She could feel his presence nearing her. 

He congratulated the bridegroom; she still refused to lift her gaze.  She had assassinated him countless times in her thoughts. She dreaded of his touch. 

The last time he had touched her, she remembered being tied to the edge of the bed. Every time he would play this strange game with her that meant exploring the diamond that every kid has hidden between their legs. 

Even though it hurt her, she never told her parents about this game. Only when she grew up, did she recognize the demon in her maternal uncle who was now settled in the USA.

 Every time he visited, she excused to escape from the vicinity.
But today, she was helpless. For a moment she almost stepped to walk out of the stage, when a tight grasp held her back. 

That is when she raised her gaze to look at her husband. He blinked his eyes in assurance. She could feel her dread and anxiety vaporize. 
Bless the moment she decided to speak about it to her fiancé .

She stopped to Smile at the cameras for the last photograph of her wedding alongside the biggest fear of her life on her left and the strength to fight against it on her right.

Suggestions Welcome !

There is this idea in my mind from a long time !
Since few months I have been talking about this to multiple friends of mine, the result of which has been futile.
All that they could reply was, it is indeed a good idea. But it will take a lot of effort to volunteer.

And thus it remains an orphaned idea, still wandering in my mind searching ways to implement it

A couple of us were enjoying our regular weekend evening gupshup when we spotted kids aged around four to five years old begging for alms.

It didn't matter to them at all when we bought a plate of samosas and gave them, infact in few seconds many other kids of the same age gathered together and shared that single plate of samosas . This alarmed us that these were the kids deprived of proper food, perhaps the money that they earned out of begging is snatched by their leaders, leaving them deprived of food. That is when this idea struck me.

For instance, if we take an example of a small scale office. If each employee of the office bring one chapati extra,(which doesn't involve any effort from their side) , perhaps we can accumulate all the extra chapati and give to these people at traffic signals or public places . Agreed, it is easy to collect the food, however the question is in distributing it. I need suggestions for this . If at all you have any idea of  any such existing groups, who can be of help in implementing it, please forward it to them .

We can also implement such ideas in a Housing society. Making a chapati extra, is not an hard task at home, we could collect this from each apartment in the society and distribute to the needy  I am totally unaware as to how to start implementing this and so one of my brain cell suggested why not put in on your blog .And so here it is !

And the comment box is open below ! If at all this idea strikes you any good way , please  pull that hand of the mouse and reach to the key board and let me know about it !
