Lingering - Volume One
At the entrance gate to a Central Govt Colony, there was a spacious cabin with all the latest technology to identify visitors so the residents could allow them access. However, the guards were still mandated to check the identity of each entrant unless they had a permanent pass or were known by the guards.
In this setup, a simple, sincere, sensitive, and sentimental young man named Brijendra was assigned to duty at the entry gate. He was specifically ordered to check the identity of everyone till he could recognise them fully. He had joined to help his family to raise their standards of living, therefore he was cautious about fulfilling his duties.
One day, he was traumatised by the rejection from a young lady whom he was attracted to. The statement was so powerful that it awakened his conscience and challenged him, leading to this story.
About the Author: Satish Chandra Saxena is a retired Education Officer of the Air Force. He completed his M. A. in English Literature from Allahabad University (Uttar Pradesh) way back in 1958. He had a keen interest in reading all types of social and political literature, with an inclination towards expressing himself through his writing in university days, where he had published a magazine named Chillies Times, narrating news, views and comments. After his retirement, his pastime has been reading novels and writing stories, decluttering his brain of feelings about people and personalities, situations, and services, as a hobby and for his health and humour. During long meetings and interacting with people, he started writing this fictional tale, in which he named cities, people and places just to give credibility to his descriptions. Everything in the book is pure fiction dealing with only one thing: the lingering of the dark side of human beings.
