Journey to the world

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 19; the nineteenth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.

I don’t remember who I am. I gained consciousness only a few days back. My past is still a mystery to me. I try and try to remember something, anything, about my past but I keep on drawing a blank.

At times I hear voices around me… But when I try to see, I don’t find anyone around me.

Food and water mysteriously appears in my small room.

Okay, room is a slight exaggeration. It is a dark, dank, round kind of room. Humidity is very perceptible in the very air.

Days have been passing just like that. With each passing day, it seems that the room is getting a bit smaller… Or perhaps I am getting bigger. I can’t think straight. Don’t know what reality is and what is dream. I kind of feel like I am in a trance like state.

I can feel perceptible changes in my body too. My hair has grown longer. I have harder bits on my fingertips.

Of lately, I have been feeling kind of restless. All of a sudden, I feel an urge to move. I don’t know the direction but some primal instinct is making me move one way. Gradually, what seems like rays of light began to appear at one end.

Suddenly, I was lifted from my feet and I heard the person say “Congratulations. You have a healthy baby boy”.

  4. I second Enchanta in saying that this was one of the best I've read in this BATON. I loved the thoughts of the unborn child the most. You brought them like they were they were exact ones you had thought of and that's saying something!
    Lovely post.
    All the best for BAT.

  5. beautiful. this was indeed one of the best! the ending was given away before the ending, but the thought was truly unique! all the best!

  6. Aashish a different but still a good one..... You have used the analogy of an unborn child beautifully.... I liked it...... Keep it up..Best wishes,

  7. Mystery of Birth! I have a small suggestion. The second picture (of a pregnant woman) reveals the secret even before one reaches the last line. Mabybe, if you could just remove that one or replace it at the end! Just a suggestion - you know it best of course!
