The View #BlogchatterHalfMarathon

Ancient architecture is one of the most fascinating things in the world. The Great Pyramids of Giza, the advanced Harappa and Mohenjo Daro cities in India, the huge Colosseum in Rome, or the grand churches of Europe; all of them are a living tribute to the knowledge, vision, and dedication of their time. Sadly, thousands of years later, some of them face part or full destruction due to natural and other reasons. How would someone feel if they were to witness these places in both these states?

This is my eighth post for Blogchatter Half Marathon and is on the same lines. I’m writing 100-word stories with a picture prompt as part of my Blogchatter Half Marathon posts since I love creating fiction.

I’m also trying to capture one emotion in every post. Today’s emotion is: SADNESS.

The peak came into view and Lata momentarily stood gaping at it, spellbound. The next moment though, she noticed the eyesores that blocked half of its majestic structure. Shabby buildings and sand-sprayed cars could never hold a candle to its grandeur, could they? What a downfall for the Old Kingdom!

Lata’s visions were as clear as day now. She was there. Standing behind him, she had witnessed the moment history would never forget. How he prided himself on creating a unique resting place that the world would remember for centuries to come!

A royal. A visionary. Her father. The Pharoah.
