Knock knock. Who’s there? Death.

Fire brigades.

Sirens. Smoke.

They are breaking glass.

Fire. Water. Splash. Life. Death.
Death. Fire. Splash. Water. Life.





‘I don’t want you so near me, death. I lied when I said that I liked you.’
Pass me the juice please.

      Thankyou so much!
      You wonder how I make it, I wonder how well you see it. Beauty lies in beholder’s eyes for sure. πŸ˜‰
      About the fire, I will never forget that day. Everyone but us had gathered on the roadside, just in case the flames might wrap up the entire place. Guess what I did, I wrote this blog.

    Oh My heart missed a beat reading about fire ! You are fine na ? How did that happen ? And be safe okay meri nanhi philosopher ko kuch nae hona chaye πŸ™‚ I love your words here….So less words and yet so vast meanings.

      Hahah ‘nanhi philospher’: I just so love this khitaab. :p
      Yar hojata tou maza ta, though I know nhi ata shayad, but we people are the kind ke death ko bulaaty rehty haen, aur jab itni nazdeed hoti hae to kaanpne lag jaty haen!
      I am fine, so is everybody else Alhamdulillah πŸ™‚ Siwaae that 15 lac ka furniture jo nechay shop me jal gya 😦 πŸ˜€

      Glad you liked my words. Getting such meaningful feedbacks on such random words that I use, feels great! πŸ˜‰

        Haan sahi keh rae ho….we forget death and we don’t even bother remembering it ever…..Aagay jaa k jutay khanay pertay hain tabi aqal thikanay ati ho gi 😦
        Aww It must be a huge loss for the shop owner….I am happy there was no human loss of any kind.
        Those words were not random…they had a deep meaning like you have inside you nanhi philosopher πŸ™‚ xx

          ‘Agay ja ke jotay khany partay haen tab aqal ati hae.’ ye jumla kaheen suna hae πŸ˜‰
          huge loss, yup i think so too. Aglay din sara jala hua furniture van me load ho ke gaya..
          Thank you again, for interpreting my words. πŸ™‚

    Sad to hear about the earthquake there. Sorrt for being so late. Been busy with life.Could relate to it totally. Lost a loved one to death recently unexpectedly. It taught me about His power and will.
    Duas for him and his family please πŸ™‚
    Hope everythings good at your end. Insha’Allah πŸ™‚

    • randomlyabstract says:

      Oh I am so sorry to know that Miss M. May Allah bless him Jannah and may his family earn sabar e jamil.
      I didn’t know somebody could relate like that, but I’ve been writing death stuff lately, in my personal blog.
      A lot of duas, and best wishes for you. And hey, you were actually missed! Really! 😦

    this reminded me of something i read in Annie Dillard’s book “For the Time Being’ – ‘The Mahabharata says, “Of all the world’s wonders, which is the most wonderful?
    “That no man, though he sees others dying all around him, believes that he himself believes that he himself will die.”

    i guess it is our job in life to make peace and get comfortable with death.
