The Detached Soul
Roar of incessant shelling from big guns. Boom – boom –boom passed high over our position to distant targets behind us. Maybe they were giving cover to the advancing infantry solders. Bullets from small guns clinked on the stones and sometimes whistled past continuously. And rat-tat-tat-boom everywhere around me. At a time, I deafened out. Darkness descended before my eyes. And I didn’t know when I passed out.’
‘A young boy’s voice stammered, intelligible to none but himself. He was at a loss how to explain. He feared lest he was held responsible.’
‘I spent several sleepless nights brooding over it and finalised the modus operandi to wipe him off the surface of the earth and make it a better place with one evil less.’
“Very beautiful and heartwarming read. Totally loved going through this wonderful book. I liked the way the protagonist relayed the whole story. There is a flow in the writing which keeps the readers hooked to it!”
– Elteza Jahir.
