GALLERY OF GHOSTS
Very few of us write on a blank page,
Or eat off an empty plate.
Try not to think and you are thinking
Ignore the moment and you dream.
Rudra adapted many a strategy over the years to achieve emptiness.
He thought he had identified the enemy and began to encircle it.
A full frontal attack was followed by the infiltration of undercover agents.
Locking horns prolongs the conflict.
Strategic retreat earns respite.
But he was not looking for either of these.
Sixty years passed before he realised he was in a gallery of ghosts.
