This blog is written as a submission to the prompt “TRULY ALIVE”  by WriteTribe for their 100 Words on Saturday – 4  . The idea for the write up originated accidentally during one of my conversations with my dear friend J. This write up is a purely fictional one. Hope all of you like it.


Shammi, a great blogger, had done the impossible. A hundred bloggers rushed to his little sister’s wedding a day after he had submitted his hundred worded post on WriteTribe.  All of them had read only the first seventy words as requested by Shammi in his post. They gathered around the newly wedded couple and read out the last thirty. “I had promised you that I will be TRULY ALIVE at your wedding. I am alive through this post and in the voices of these hundred fellow bloggers. Have a great life sister.”

Shammi had died a week before, due to cancer.
