A Rising Sun's Promise
[Winner of The Eminence Awards 2017]
[Winner of The Realist Awards Summer edition]
Born into a reputable family of Pakistan, Ziya Khan was like the rising Sun that woke her up every morning - young and radiant, she had her soft rays filling the cosmos with warmth, all her shades blended together like an unfinished piece of art. And like the Sun she traveled, swimming her way through the peaks and valleys, finally she drowned. Like a ball of fire, sinking into the blue paleness of a half lived life, catching one last breath. In between she died a little, the echo of her laughter once so clear fading away by the minute. From dawn till sundown, she wandered alone, not a soul concerned about her. Yet, uncountable battles later, each one marveled at the ethereal beauty of the Sun's birth and death. The woman, Ziya Khan realized, like the Sun, is only noticed when she is beautiful.
A story of how a girl as pure as one of the rising Sun's promises fights to become a woman as strong as the setting Sun's blazing, dying glow.
