55 Flash Fiction Friday #32: Chapter 24 - Das Phere



Some stories are the same in any language.
She'd scarcely had time to consider what his last words to her meant when the door opened again. Another shadow fell on her, tearing and grunting. And the import of what he'd said burst on her consciousness. Nine times more the door opened. Nine more faceless monsters ravaged her to cries of "Vandhe Mataram!" outside.

Notes:
das phere: ten times

its a shame that they would chant Vande Matram while performing such a heinous crime!

but they are doing it here all the while...as if they were led by patriotism or God himself to act like this....

Ironically my 55ve is a somewhat similar theme...

I recently watched a movie called "Hey Ram" with similar scene. This time they were a gang of Muslims raping a Hindu neighbor's wife. One of them was her tailor she always went to get her blouses stitched and called him "bhaiyya" (brother)! It is never ending! Now we can't go to Pubs or have a romantic dinner with our partners on V day in India. What is going on? SAD!!

Well... have a wonderful weekend.

Glad my daughter is growing up here in US, safely! :)

Yeah, thanks for the heads-up!

VERY INTENSE STUFF.

Maybe you can turn this into a screenplay one day.

And we can all say we knew you when...

This knocked the wind clean out of me. What a horror. I wonder if it's possible to think at all after such a nightmare.

This is too sad... but, for some sick reason I feel compelled to come back every week and read more...you are so bad!! :D
Enjoy your V-DAy!

I think you wrote about the gang rape really well. With respect to the victim. In light of the discussions on my thread on Adult Content regarding my art posts, I agree with you that this did not need to be flagged. Thanks for all the input on that subject.
