Sitting in his balcony overlooking valleys of Kumaun, he fondly caresses the fading pictures in the albums; he can almost feel the velvety touch of tresses and warmth of her cheeks.

He was supposed to forget her in these four decades, yet he fails to remember a day when she didn’t peek from the crowd of thoughts, responsibilities and work.

Only if you have checked- it was not my handwriting that was there on the letter bidding you adieu.

“Catching the glint of winter sunrise in your eyes

Waking up to a desolate monsoon night

Still lost in maze of what if”

  1. I wonder how many who have that feeling of what if.. so many options in life, could we have done it differently?.. Love the tone of this tale.


  2. ahh. regret. it is always our undoing.


  3. Loved your ending.. Good one


  4. Our forboding hearts, will they never cease? Someday someday the what-if’s will finally cease and, on that day we will finally find our peace.


  5. Dear Horus,

    In the maze of what if. I like that.




  6. This runs so smoothly.


  7. This has a very smooth, sad feeling to it. Just the way “What ifs” do. Well done
