Helpless

Her helplessness reflected in her almond eyes, urging me to aid her.

I led her towards the monstrous stone-gate. Before boarding the SUV, she turned, her 

brown pupils scanning the entire facade of the isolated moss-laden fort ruins. Her clothes 

and jewellery spoke of antiquity.

Her demeanour seemed uneasy. Her body shrivelled with fright.

At the bend of civilization, she insinuated to alight.

Her fair arms bore lash-marks.

“Raja’s sentinels punish me. They are following us”.

“How long have you been wandering here?”

“Three centuries”, words spurted behind the veil.

Her silhouette pulverized to merge into the brown Rajasthan sands.
