Manickam, where are we going?
Down below, Sir. Please watch your step.
How did you find this place?
Actually, by fluke. I stopped my bike here. The wheel was wobbling. After setting it, just stood near the parapet to catch my breath. I glanced down and saw the darkness below. Thought it a likely place to investigate.
So what did you find?
I saw the ground disturbed. Closer look yielded some anomalies. I called to inform you.
You did right. Let’s see.
Sir, I dread what we may find. Can’t face them.
True. But we have to do our duty!

Writing is a catharsis for me and helps deal with strong emotions.
Evil.seems to literally walk the streets these days.
May be they are out to find something startling. May be some unmarked grave that may solve unsolved mystery.
That’s a great input. So positive!
I view of the inspiration for your story, I found it even more disturbing. We live in a sad world sometimes. Powerfully done!

Well told story inspired by an awful one.
A sad tale, sadder still that it is inspired by such terrible truths. It’s shocking what some women have to face. The world has a long way to go…
Yes, they do. However, recent attacks have been on children.
