It began with the smallest mistake,
allowing them to stay,
along with us as our guests,
and never go away.
They spread the snakes of hatred,
in every nook and corner,
and bit us all apart,
making us easy to conquer.
Like vultures tearing meat apart,
they tore away our unity,
making sure the cut once made,
would never heal again.
When Oppression finally opened our eyes,
oceans of blood drowned us,
into the depths of darkness,
where once entered can never comeout again.
Until one day when he arrived,
bringing along the rays of freedom,
carried us up away from darkness,
and showered the glory of 'satyagraha'.
He healed the cuts of hatered,
and pulled us all together,
reminding us about who we are,
the children of the 'Golden Bird'.
When they heard the voices of freedom,
they knew they had to leave,
decided to make a final cut,
a cut that hurts even today.
But at last at the stroke of the midnight hour,
when the world lay in slumber,
the sky was filled with a sparkle of a bird,

Fill their aroma in my heart,
Envisioning such worlds apart
That more than my mind entices,
But also long hidden vices
That purge from my body with peace.
The warm air my world decreases
And makes only this world alive,
A pure land with its own pained life,
Where I can make all dark doubts cease.

"The cow is a successful animal. Also he is quadrupud, and because he is female, he give milk,but will do so when he is got child.He is same like God,sacred to Hindus and useful to man.But he has got four legs together. Two are forward and two are afterwards.
His motion is slow only because he is of asitudinious species. Also his other motion is much useful to trees, plants as well as making flat cakes in hand and drying in the sun. Cow is the only animal that extricates his feeding after eating.
His only attacking and defending organ is the horn, specially so when he is got child. This is done by knowing his head whereby he causes the weapons to be paralleled to the ground of the earth and instantly proceed with great velocity forwards."
That's how a would be IAS officer has described the Indian cow. Our beloved Indian cow. Holy cow, Hindu cow, Gau Mata, Dugdh Devi, Purveyor of the Dung in the words of Salman Rushdie, Phantom (short for phantom shitter) in mine.

Beth's heart skipped when she looked over her reflection, barely recognizing the young lady who stared back. The gown she wore, though not cut in the latest fashion, was a rich emerald green that complimented her fair skin and rich brown curls. The skirt was full, the silk flaring slightly at the hips and reaching to the floor where the hem was stitched in an ornate pattern of golden ivy. The stitching continued up the skirt to the bodice, wrapping around it in a way that complimented her narrow waist.
The bodice was cut lower than the style that Beth was used to and was trimmed in black lace, and Beth couldn't help but feel self conscious about the amount of cleavage that it revealed. Yet Fiona assured her that it was not at all inappropriate, that it barely revealed anything at all, which relieved Beth somewhat.
Fiona had also managed to style Beth's unruly tresse

What am I doing here?
Durias shifted in his seat as he looked around the small eatery, uncomfortable because he sat cramped in a booth so close to his younger brother.
It was their second day in the strange realm from which Mias had taken Elle, and still Aurelius hadn’t managed to find a young lady that held his interest for more then a passing glance or a bit of flirting.
Durias on the other hand, was content to stand by the wayside, for he had no interest nor desire to find for himself what Mias had found with Elle--because unlike his young brother, Durias knew that true love was a myth.
He hadn’t always been such a cynical bastard, but after what had happened with Angelique and Elias, Durias knew that he would never be able to trust a woman with his heart again.
Bitterness and sorrow were all he knew now--which was fine with him. As the leader of a vast army, there could be no room in his heart for anything as trivial as the idea of love. He

Right away I recognize her pet. The cloth over his mouth moves, but the blast was too close and I shake my head, pointing to my ear. He understands. He grips my arm with a hand of ice, firm and clinical, doing his job as ordered; and drags me to the side of the establishment with an urgency that has little to do with my preservation. I can't hide my amusement at that fact, dire as our situation may be. Abruptly I am thrown, shoved too hard into the shadows and against the wall, my vertebrae snapping to attention with the impact. Must remember to thank my 'hero' for that one later. He presses a forearm against my chest, leaving it there just an extra moment: stay here.
He disappears. I shudder at the cold as a wave of goose bumps rips over my skin. My eyes dart to and fro, ner

The light from the window was like a beckon in the night for him, attracting him like a moth to the flame. He huffed as he stepped out from the shadows, that covered him when he ran off into the night. He looked left, then right, then left again; the lesson his Grandfather taught him burned into the back of his mind: you could never be too careful when you are apart of the mafia. It was enough already that Antonio knew where you lived; that bastard couldn't keep a secret for the life of him...! But, just the thought of you, was enough to bring a heart fluttering smile to his lips.
Your silhouette from the window came into his views, making him halt in the middle of the street; the

There was a sudden urge about Allistor that make a sense of deja vu crawl up your spine. "You don't deserve the kingdom." His gruff voice was slow, letting the words sink in. Arthur's fair-skinned face turned red with rage. His lips were sealed in a thin line as he began to shake, like a volcano ready to explode.

Beth sat before the fireplace in her bedroom, her feet tucked beneath her and a blanket wrapped around her shoulders. She was still trembling after all that had happened, and though she tried to breath evenly, her heartbeat wouldn’t slow even a little.
Garrett had disappeared several hours before with an unconscious Fiona in his arms and a shaken, bleary eyed Mr. Gibbs close at his side.
Beth had asked to help, wanting to be close by when Fiona woke, but both men had insisted that she too needed to rest after her ordeal, and so she had been left with no other choice but to wait anxiously in her bedroom for word of Fiona’s condition.
In an effort to keep her mind off of her worry over Fiona, she busied herself by removing the bandages from her arm and leg.
“Strange,” she murmured when the bandages fell away. Not a scratch marred her pale skin, and there were no scars. To anyone else, it would appear

You walked out of the girls' dorms and crossed to the next building, on your way to the training fields. You and Sasha had been the last ones to leave the dorms and were on your way together. The girls had been singing songs all morning and Sasha and you had a new earworm...
"From here on out, I'll be your commander!" You belted out.
"I'll be your commander!" Sasha echoed.
"No, fear, no doubt, I'll provide the answer! And right now I command you to-"
"DANCE!" You both finished while giggling. You neared Commander Erwin's office and you both hushed...only to turn the corner and pick up the singing again as you passed Captain Levi's office.
You knew that he and the other squad leaders including Commander Erwin were at a meeting at that moment so you didn't fear his scolding (and subsequent punishment).

He parted the curtain to find his wife lying in bed, the sun streaming through the windows and falling gently upon her face. She cradled a small bundle to her chest, her usually emotionless eyes smiling.
"I'm so sorry I couldn't get here sooner!" Zuko told her, out of breath. "I wish I hadn't missed it, Mai." He approached the bed, his robes flowing behind him. He leaned down to press a kiss to her lips.
"It's okay," she replied, lifting the small child off of her chest, "Zuko, meet our son."
The young firelord's shaking arms extended and gently took the baby boy from his wife, holding him to his chest. He cradled his son's small form delicately, knowing that in his hands was the most precious child in the world. His son was so small, so light, and so amazingly perfect that Zuko could not tear his gaze away. Love of the purest kind filled his heart, making everything seem lighter.

After sitting through several grueling hours of their mindless blather, he had excused himself, saying that the exhaustion of his ordeal and the anxiety over his wife had given him a dreadful headache, and so he was going to retire to his room for a few hours to rest.
Edmund took the hallway towards the guest quarters, glancing back to be sure that Mr. and Mrs. Gibbs weren't following, then he turned and headed down another hall which led through the dining room and into the foyer.
He crept up the stairs, darting quickly into the darkness of the hallway for fear that he might be spotted. The wind howled outside, making the heavy windows rattle.
