Beyond Death and Other Stories
I felt rage which was unusual in my world and I wanted to come to teach lesson to perpetrators of crime not only against me but also my mother who was not taken care of and who died as beggar. When I told my community leader he was annoyed and said that I may never come back. But I was insistent and so I got transported here when in sleep. I have no idea how to go back or whether I will ever go back to meet my family. Now, I realise my mistake in taking revenge. I can?t live here as I remember everything and I can?t go there as I am clueless in that. He stood to move out of room. Mukesh finally asked, ?But your name sounded Hindu, Anand.? Smilingly was answer given ?we have no names as we don?t need them either. That was only for you so that we can communicate.? Off he went leaving behind a visibly shaken and new Avatar of Mukesh. He was never heard of again.
