Void

Void - Anukriti Sharma Photography
In the midst of loneliness and desperation lies a feeling called, 'void'
That is what she felt that day...
Not just that day, but for many days thereafter.
For months... for years...
The feeling remained stagnant.. as stagnant as the eyes of her little baby.

In a windowless apartment... she was all alone.
The area had been abandoned... only sooty clouds had been spared... spared of being burnt down to ashes.
After two days of incessant violence, they had left.

The rioters had left...
Had they? Really?

The stains of life had ignited a riot within... The fire wouldn't die down so easily...
Burnt - Anukriti Sharma Photography
She had lost her husband... He had been hacked to pieces in front of her very own eyes...
Her child lay naked in her arms like a piece of rag - dirty, deformed, dead.
She lay naked within the inner folds of herself...
Her clothes besmirched... Her hollow eyes devoid of tears...

Raped
Once, twice, thrice...
Over and over again...

By unknown faces,
Unknown objects,
Unknown men...

Benumbed,
Silent,
Void...
Why?
Do you know?

Nicely executed. But I found the choice of words at some places inappropriate. Please don't mind. It's just my viewpoint.

it's very painful when someone has to go through this phase,

the rioters had left...
had they? really?

very true, even though they leave after raping her, those reminiscences would always follow as shadows.

i pray god give the courage to forget that unforgettable phase & confidence to move forward in life.

The feeling of 'Void' is well expressed in this story!...She is mentally raped too :(....Sadly beautiful!!

Anupam Patra said...

This post that you've written is so poignant that it hangs long after you've read the words.

And this is not just about this particular post, which by the way is absolutely moving, but goes for most of your works. Your photos are a visual treat combined with another powerful medium of expression 'words'. So the resultant effect is breathtaking.

Its like I'm in a dream - serene, subtle and recluse. Things that we often miss out on , in the cacophony of life, are innocently portrayed in your blog.

Glad I stumbled upon it.

Keep it up

Another good one from you Anukriti.
The use of photos to link the written was apt and helped in raising some really uncomfortable questions.
Keep it up :)
