Flash Fiction

The Fate #FridayFotoFiction


Vani was finally at her dream destination. She could hear them, hear the cheer, hear the applause. She closed her eyes and breathed in heavily. Vani wanted to take as much as she can from here.

This ruined arena was once a most desired venue for some great artists across the globe. The day Vani heard about its renovation, the dream of performing here became her only aim.



That fateful fever. Which left but took her hearing power. She saw her life, her dream crumble like a house of cards. Bereft of hearing her own voice, music could now only be seen, touched, and smelled, but never heard.


But, today, standing at the amphitheater, Vani could hear everything.

‘Vanii.. Vanii…’

Vani became determined to change her destiny.


Vani will sing, again!

Despite being deaf.

I saw a video on Facebook of I think America’s Got Talent where a girl who was left deaf in her teenage years owing to a deadly fever, sang fantabulously beautiful. She left me in tears. I dedicate this post to her. And to every person who might have gotten bitter experiences from life but never lost faith and their willpower.

I marvel at the dedication and determination of these people to achieve their dreams and defeat what destiny has in store for them. I salute them for what they do with what little they have.

I am taking part in the #FridayFotoFiction – Weekly Flash Fiction Writing Challenge hosted by Tina and Mayuri

  1. Destiny can be so cruel! A physical handicap has never deterred people from their creative pursuits. Rather, I think losing one sense makes the other ones sharper and more receptive.
    Great take on the prompt, Rashi.

  2. Loved this post! Here’s to everyone trying to gain back their courage to doing what they are passionate about … Even after stumbling at all the stones life throes at them!

  3. I have watched this ” America Got Talent” video on YouTube, Rashi. And have cried all the while watching it. At the same time have marveled at the confidence and grace with which the young girl sang!
    More power to Vani. Appreciate your choice of the name for the protagonist.
