#AtoZChallenge – Letter Z – The Zamindar


The old man looked surprisingly at the letter. He hadn’t received one in more than 40 years. It was from England.

Zamindar Sahib, hope you are old like me. I can hardly walk. Guess this is punishment for the sins inflicted on the farmers in your land. I feel sorry for what happened,” the letter said.

A dark cloud now lined the old man’s face. Tears rolled down his sunken cheeks as he thought about the cruel deeds he had done to appease the British officer responsible for his district. He had been paralyzed from the waist down for years now.

Zamindar – a feudal landlord

This is my third year of participating in the A-to-Z blogging challenge and like last year, I’m glad I could complete the challenge this year too. This post is written in response to the letter Z.



I'm an avid reader and writer. Reading gets me a feeling of understanding the world through different perspectives and writing helps me outline my thoughts from the cobwebs that the mind has trapped it in!
