55 word story: 7 Seconds of life

In those seven seconds of fall, he sees himself being cradled, mom bandaging his wound, dad pushing the bicycle, Maths tutor slapping him, peeping into Mrs Sen’s bathroom, sleeping with Sunaina, graduating, parents finding a girl, first night, he slapping her coz she is not a virgin, on honeymoon she pushing him off the cliff………..

  1. I have to say, Ritesh, this is an interesting way of putting your views into words. I am curious though, how long did it take you to write these 55 words? I am sure it's not an easy task.

  2. Great write-up! Writing is a talent, and it must not be wasted. As with everything that we had been entrusted, we should

    let it grow and share it with the world.>self

  3. Good one :)

  4. Whoaa!! Action packed seven seconds I must say.
    Hats off to the 55 words that encased them! :)
