The Mystery of Maya


Short story “The Mystery of Maya” is written for the Mondays Finish the Story Challenge – July 20, 2015The task is, given the image and starting line, to complete the story in 100 to 150 words.


The petroglyphs told the story of an unusual event.  All the college friends who had come for weekend trip were deeply looking at petroglyphs and trying to decode what it meant. Just then, Maya hoped ahead and exclaimed, “I somehow feel related to it!”.
One of the friends replied, “Yeah, there is a picture of monkey over there”. There were giggles.

2000 years ago,
Little Maya had coined her own symbolic language. It had become traditional and household. She had a very strong belief that she in her next rebirth will come and read the story about herself.

How will Maya ever know that she was the one who had written it along with a secret message? The symbolic language was now extinct.

Life is such a mystery! Who knows?? The untold story associated with us!

  2. Excellent short story Prakash!
    Maya reading Mayan language…..
    I feel like her when I watch documentaries about Australia & India. I ‘remember’ things from both places yet have never been to either place…
    I also remembered a lot of Ojibway (Native Canadian) heritage over the years which baffled a lot of people. I DO believe I was an Ojibway many many years ago!
    Truth is stranger than fiction right? 😉
