SNAKES AND LADDERS
Donut feet, swaying to the tune of " snakes and ladders", gliding along the rainbow wall, admired by wind chimes of neighbours - sun and rain alike.. The tales shared by four little eyes and the charming tricks played by those little fingers , create a musical fountain of a child's mood swings.. The feeble gaps between fencing poles in farms are like black holes, they suck me in and spit me out... out of the various worlds I created..
My fingers relive the texture of my school bench, the fragrance of my college mess and the sensitivity of her belly....
Reclining in the theatre of life, I reflect upon the nest i wove, the strings i broke, the dams I made and the hearts I stole.. A sneaky but bold voice, reverberates the chandeliers of my self reflectance.."lets play the game again, and this time play to win!" The battle horns ignite the missing spark and infuses new fire to the game and the radio plays "cham cham jhilmil raatein...ye sitaaron waale"..Spectacles blinded by the vapours of kadak chaii and the magic fingers hit the bull's eye..100 it is.! I look back..And She took my snakes away.But now, i search for a ladder to drop back to '0' to play the 'Game' again.! -Darpan Chandalia
