Short Story “Ahmad”
I felt the chill coming out of my skin through my sweat glands.
In the dead darkness of the wintry night, I felt the chill coming out of my skin through my sweat glands. Most possibly I was feeling, rather than witnessing the awe of the dead darkness, said Ahmad. The wickedness of my thoughts was roaming between the two lobes of my brain. I was flying high up in the sky like a Genii looking down on earth. Short Story
On God’s creation. —the worthless and mean, sucking the blood of each other. The imagination I described above, may seem weightless to you for the time being. But as I go further deep into the matter you might get enough experience to appreciate my courage. The furious event that took a short while after I found myself in Hell. Said Ahmad, an ambitious but pious youth of 29 years. Though he has got piousness as a gift from God. But still he is not satisfied. Short Story
The Master of All Things
Ahmad the master of all things, of trades, of manners, of politics, of morality. Neither his heart nor his soul craves for worldly gratifications. His pulse never palpitates for anything, but still, he lacks satisfaction. At this moment, I cannot tell what type of satisfaction he is seeking. But of one thing I am certain that he is suffering from some kind of mental anguish. People say that he is ill-omened and wretched, but I never entertained that thought. And now I too think he is ill-omened despite his piousness. At times he even has no food to eat—which the Sustainer has promised. With hunger pangs, the killing chill and with no source to overcome these, he lives like a dog. Sometimes he wonders why he is not a dog. The wretched of wretches’ is that he does not even have’ a friend. Short Story
Ahmad Saw Four Moons.
“I saw four moons hovering in all four directions a few hundred meters above my head. and when I gathered my senses; for they lost in awe and amazement. I rotated my eyeballs in search of a way out”. Said Ahmad to Owaisi- a priest, the religious head of the place where Ahmad lives. Owaisi, revered and respected, has attained this status in inheritance. His immediate ancestors never admonished their followers and general population. Short Story
What I am suggesting here about Owaisi is not based on my findings. But instead determined by the present state of affairs of our society. The title assigned the name of Owaisi suggests preacher. In fact there are many men who have assigned “Head Preacher” before their names. The greed for money, gluttony is the motive for which they are surviving. “You have seen a meaningful dream whose end is disastrous but gratifying if you wish”. answered Owaisi. “Oh God, what you have forbidden will be bounty. And what I have read from your book mentions the forbiddance of these things. Said Ahmad in a sense to address almighty God. Short Story
