The flashes created a spool of memories too painful for him to speak out. The 

psychiatrist prodded him to open up gingerly taking care of his still raw wounds.

It was a quotidian affair for Aditya and his younger sibling to ride on the tandem bike 

deep into the woods. They enjoyed the verdant quiet surroundings and indulged in 

persiflage. They bonded over mundane matters as well as matters of the heart. The 

younger sibling just stepped into the threshold of teen-hood. The leaves changed colour, 

sunshine melted away and the brothers pledged to keep this bonding till the autumn of 

their lives.

The terrain was rough and so was the time. Aditya came back riding minus his sibling. His 

wails reverberated through the woods.


Would Aditya be able to swim to the shore and absolve himself from the guilt of 

helplessness of the accidental drowning of his sibling or would he torment himself for 

life? Time will the healing factor as the medical world elucidated or will Aditya learn to 

survive with the pain?
