Behind the mall
Reminds me of Tarkovsky's Stalker... with a Gurgaon twist.
Wandering about the half finished mall, I was transfixed
by the unexpected sight of tall reeds
I moved closer to the window and wondered about the
reeds growing in this arid landscape... Don't they
need water and soggy land?
On a higher floor, I peer through another window and
catch sight of a mongoose scampering through the tall
grass. When I click, I am gratified to see the
reflection of my cellphone emerging from the grass in
the middle distance, a ghost amid the 'real' buildings.
