The Truth - II

Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers
Thanks to all for the amazing feedback for my Post - The Truth
Thanks for the heart-touching encouragement, inspiration & support! 

Based on popular demand, here's the sequel. Do hope it meets your expectations!

Read Part-I - The Truth

Part-II follows:

In her writing-career, an established-writer X started stalking her.
Amongst her site’s 1st readers, X posted the same ideas some hours later!
Worse, X slapped charges on her- Plagiarism & Cyber-Harassment unfair… 
Baseless malicious public-allegations & private hate-mails put her integrity under glare.

(About X) She wished she knew then what she knew now
X is mentally unstable & Schizophrenic anyhow!

People had heard only (X’s) one side of the story.
No one knew her story & the reality so gory!

Will sharing the truth make her character cleaner?
At the other side of the fence, is the grass greener?

    1. You have a valid point, Bikram.
      Unless she speaks, people won't know her side of the story and they will continue to feel she is guilty! :)

  18. First let me grab this moment to thank you for gracing my blog with ur kind words. Now honestly i feel i wish i had ur talent. i have been grappling with this serious flaw of mine...how to say so much by saying so little. You have said it so well that there's nothing that needs to be said. True talent always remains...ideas get copied...words get copied but thoughts i get these days people listen to your thoughts too and start copying that too...and they won't ever give you credits and as you say will do worse. But in the end i believe truth prevails. As you said it yourself so beautifully, " At the other side of the fence, is the grass greener." Makes me think of something else on similar lines though which was something like this...blowing out someones candle will not mke yours shine any brighter and the best one by Hellen Keller " Keep your face to the sunshine and the shadows will fall behind you."

    1. Welcome to my Blog, Shivani :) Lovely that you have shared such kind & inspiring words & support :) Thanks!
      I agree with your views. In this age of Social Media, ideas get easily copied & original proponents do not earn their due as the 'inspired' folks don't give them any credit.
      The Hindi movie- Akele Hum Akele Tum shows the struggle of a Newbie whose work is copied by a famous Music-Director duo, who even win Awards! What point is an Award that's based on another's hard-work/idea/talent?
      May the shadows fall behind & let there be light :)

      One is poor if one indulges in falsehood just like X has done...

  22. Anita, Good story. I read the first half and this was a fitting sequal. I hope your narrator is found to be innocent of all the lies told about her and the guilty person gets the needed help. Well written. : ) ---Susan
