55 Flash Fiction Friday #33: Chapter 25 - Golaa pooraa huaa hai


Some stories are the same in any language.
She had considered staying, considered hunting down the others and delivering them to their maker as she had Vinay. But she had no way to know who they were, and no one was going to aid her in finding out. She was tarnished now, damaged, and for all practical purposes dead to all but herself.

Notes:
golaa pooraa huaa hai: the circle is complete

Did you hear about the Irani woman who got her face burned, blinded by acid by a guy who wanted to marry her and she said no to him?
He is going to be blinded by acid by law too in few weeks but he will be unconscious while they pour acid in his eyes!! She didn't have that luxury when he threw acid on her. I guess in a way her gola is complete too. Only in Iran!

Anyway, we have Shiva Ratri on Monday, will be cooking yet another vegetarian thali. My kids are not very happy, they are really tired veg platter now! :D

Oh well..can't help it, can't cook meat on festivals, may be later in the week, I will please them!

Have a great weekend.

Asha writes about the Irani woman... Here close by in Delhi we had a boyfriend sending MMS of her doing a striptease for him, when the girl refused to marry him, yesterday!
