The sound of a horn was a call of warning. Nevertheless, it charged the riders.
Snorting of horses was heard. The next moment, earth shook under the clatter of their hooves and the two armies collided with each other. The clanking of swords brought the smell of horror and the ground became red with the blood.
I was still under the charm of that place when the voice of my teacher brought me back to reality.
“Time to go back students”, she was saying.
While sitting in the bus, I recalled my history lesson. For, a long time the fort remained unconquered. Then a force of gallant soldiers raided it. It’s considered as a bloodiest chapter in the history of war.
The number of casualties was large but at last, the fort was conquered. I looked back upon that symbol of glory.
The sun was bright and its worn out walls were shining. Perhaps, they were smiling at the bravery of soldiers who were resting in a mass grave behind it.
