THE CABBAGE STORY | Priyanka Bhandarkar

She fell in love with an Author.It was the edge of infatuation but maybe with his newly published novel which is an account of his fierce Romance. And a few ardent readers would dare to cotinue this ANODYNE QUEST. One fateful afternoon she mustered the courage to talk to him hoping to spend the day with him.She found him sitting in the front yard of his house.He was meditating pulnged into Buddhist philosophy.So,began a romance that lasted many years. "I HAVE FALLEN IN LOVE" As i look back this memory captured in a photograph with him holding his first book, it seems to me an adventure.It is to remain a mystery to the fact that nothing good could come out of it. I HAVE LONG BACK REALISED THE POWERS OF MODERN ENGLISH. It is the most unusual kind of love titled to the works of English literature far more better in every way than the story of Romeo and Juliet. But the relationship continued in the more explicit of manners.We made merry and shared some of the most wonderful stories of this world that everybody would be jealous of.Then there was the hangover to deal with each morning. Writing was the only thing that brought us together and marriage was not something either of us desired. I felt his pain.I donot know why he wanted to hide his feelings even in front of me.And then he lost his brother who was in the Army. Late one afternoon a letter had arrived bringing in the sad news.With this man where trouble co-existed,this was completely devastating. AND HE BEGAN TO DRINK MORE.

Eventually we parted ways.And then many years later,something unusual happened. I was dusting the house.A piece of paper came to my importance. It was an Autograph. It read---To Jack.

Life is complicated.It is all about Love,Kindness and Birth of the Universe. And this is what i think about Jack. And i wonder what innocence kept me guessing.... JENNY IS THE NAME OF AN ADULT FEMALE DONKEY.AN ADULT MALE DONKEY IS CALLED A JACK. (The Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code or IPC is an act that criminalises homosexuality and was introduced in the year 1861 during the British rule of India.referred to 'unnatural offences' and says whoever voluntarily has carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any man,woman or animal,shall be punished with imprisonment for life. However,in an historic verdict,the Supreme Court of India on September 6,2018,decriminalised the Section 377 of the IPC and allowed gay sex among consenting adults in private.The SC ruled that consensual adult gay sex is not a crime saying sexual orientation is natural and people have no control over it.)
