monday 55 – road rage
one of the fastest spreading memes in the desi blogosphere is the genre of microfiction commonly referred to as 55 fiction. this is basically a type of story which is written in exactly 55 words. though the concept itself was introduced in the eighties and is copyrighted, it has spread like wildfire since the popularisation of blogging.
as you all know, kmb isn’t exactly the type of blog which misses the train at fad station. so we’ve decided to create a sort of weekly diversion where we (and this includes you, constant reader) will try to give our creative cells a workout and come up with some karachi related 55ers. if we get some positive feedback, this can be made a regular feature.
the title of this post mentions the theme of this week’s 55 fiction entries – road rage, practically a trademark of karachi’s streets. here are my two cents:
as far as he could make out, the cg-125 had forced the big 5c to stop in the middle of the road. five seconds later, the driver and the biker were exchanging blows while the onlookers managed to block the remaining tracks.
typical monday morning on m a jinnah road.
“shit”, thought fareed. “late again.”
let’s see your entries in the comments area. all of you have seen road rage in karachi. now its time to write about it!
