River Ganges




And she tried desperately to hold his deliberate loosening grip, the diamond

ring slipped off and remained in his cupped palm, as she saw his sinister smile

before the foaming Ganges sucked the bride into the river-bed.


After the last rites, he sat, staring at the diamond ring.


Horror was largely writ on his face as he saw a hand with the wedding ring, 

rising above the rapid Ganges water-current. His feet gave away as he 

couldn't resist her strong grip dragging him.


"In life and in death together", the wedding vow, he remembered.


                                 A watery grave they had.
