Diwali is a festival of lights, of hope, of life, of togetherness. A national holiday is proclaimed not for no reason. Amidst all the blare and the buzz of the crackers bursting in the country outside her window, Sanjani managed a sneak into her pursuits.
She could be helping her mother prepare for the big Pooja , or cheering her younger siblings while they lit their bottle rockets and fire flowers. But she had an escape planned to the place where her dreams looked real.
She retired NOT because she wanted to escape, but because she had tried before and our world had failed to amuse her.
Another lovely photo prompt from Friday Fictioners. How we love writing for these prompts, Rochelle.
