The Blind Truth

There she laid at the autopsy table of a medical college. Her beautiful black curly hair flowing to her neck. Her eyes closed, in a blissed eternal sleep. Green glass bangles twinkled in her arms which were decorated with henna, a newly married bride with a departed soul.

Her lifeless limp body lay nude at the cold metal autopsy table with a dirty white cloth to maintain the honor of her body, which was about to go through postmortem examination.

A rifle wound adored with soot was burned into her lower abdomen at front and a shower of pallets etched the numerous exit wounds on her waist, hips and thighs.

Her innocent features screamed for justice, while her husband kept saying "It was a suicide! She didn't brought enough dowry!"

Dowry is a bane, and so many innocent lives have been lost in course of the blind greed of Man.

Nice post.

More like the NAKED TRUTH?

Life is pretty bad. And the more you get to see it , the more you realize it. Too bad you get numb from seeing it so much that you end up not caring about it anymore.

Don't stop caring.

@ Lost soul..
i do care, thats why i wrote it down. Thank God am not that numb yet.
However, i quite agree with you, being doctors we go half numb to pain because if u have to treat it, u have to overcome it first..

demands of dowry are so stupid. i can't believe that people can't get past that! especially in this day and age. chalo forget that..dowry is not even part of Islam. Not sure what people like these are trying to prove to themselves. are their sons not man enough to provide for themselves?
anywho, this was really well written. great stuff! :)
