The Mystery

Blog a Ton


Misnomers kept coming in. Thermal precursors added to the chaos. Spectral disturbances caused more psychological harm than actual damage.
Shut schools, deserted roads, silent trees, gave an eerie feel. Country heads urged the citizens to maintain calm. People tried to use their associative intelligence to comprehend the warnings. They longed for some God-Father assurance to suggest everything was fine. Nothing seemed coming around, but hopes remained…..

And so, did the mystery……

82 year old, Simon tucked himself inside the cave. With eyes tight shut, he silently vented his anger. He cursed the masses for their ignorance. He shunned the leaders for their slack. He growled at the wise for their silence. For none realized, that the seeds of global warming had begun to sprout!!!

Good Morning Viyoma,
I got to say this. From my point of view this power packed post brings in brevity, a social message and some good semantics together.

It is a total winner.
Good Job Vi :):)

What a powerful way of creating the atmosphere of mystery with apt words. Right from the beginning , a suspense atmosphere is imminent. One needs a lot of talent, conception and hold of the language to covey such a message in brief description. A very different take. All the best.
