Time was up

​”It is a boy ,right”?


Celebrations begun in the village with the fireworks glaring the dusk and drum beats piercing the sky,the fragrance of laddoos hijacked the surroundings.


Then the nurse came and whispered in a low voice-“it is a girl “.
Only the new born child recognised her cover a shroud,and knew her time was up.
