Howrah Bridge - 55 Fiction

"My exams are going on...and i am thoroughly frustrated.So due to lack of time, decided to write my first 55 Fiction(itz a form of micro fiction to be limited under 55 words)....bear wid me "



Sweaty feet made railing sloppy.I looked back to life, saw traffic jam.

I jumped.

The blades of wind ripped my skin.My flesh bare.


Death promised more than life.

Suddenly ropes of life tightened over my chest.


A jerk!!

I was flying back to life.Death disappointed.


My first Bungee Jump from Howrah Bridge.

Madhu said...

YO! BAck again to fight!!! lol..:P Well tell u what..u have quite clearly played with words here.
death promised more than life
Suddenly ropes of life tightened my chest...

trust me it gave a bare inkling of what was to be expected.And u know what i thought! suicide..lol..the "chest" word ruined my thoughts though!

Nice work..:)

buckingfastard said...

@Madhu: boxing Gloves check!!...mask check!!...red boxer underwear check!!..yea am ready!!

and i was wondering fr 3 days hav u gone gandhigiri or wat!! silly me!!

blame it on my parents dey gave me dictionary to play wid rather dan toys..hence i end up playin wid words!! :P

well da "inkling" was not given by me..its always dere...y u think ppl luvs bungee jumpin or for dat matter para gliding and stuff...only fr da matter dat dey can show da birdie to death on its face!!

but da fact is ppl thinks abt suicide more dan adventure sports...so u made da obvious guess gal!!

btw call me chauvinist!! but da protagonist was me and i checkd twice in mirror!! its chest fr me!! :P :D

gkam said...

"Death Promised more than life"

that was a fantastic line.

Cool. Well written! :)

Nikki said...

Very vivid. Nice :)

buckingfastard said...

@Gkam: hey thnkx!!! and welcome 2 my blog!! :)

buckingfastard said...

@Nikki:yea...it was hard to limit it widin 55 words and still keep it metaphorical!! :)

Vishnu said...

nice one mahn.. btw do they allow bungee jumpin from howrah?? isnt bungee jumpin more about fear rather than death.. n its not abt fera of death either..

Shanu said...

Nice :)

buckingfastard said...

@Vishnu: nah!! dey arrest u if u try to bungee jump...or even suicide...sad na!!

wat i felt is ppls liking wid such adventure sport is coz dey can go close to death...show death da birdie...and come back....its our eternal quest to conquer death dat makes it an adventure...

buckingfastard said...

@Shanu- thnk u vry much!!
