Innocence was Sharmila Tagore in Kashmir Ki Kali. But then sometimes that’s fiction. Life offers far more interesting examples. For example, innocence was her humming to herself as we sat together doing nothing. That was a time when even doing nothing meant a lot. Innocent were our smiles when we unknowingly made the false promises. Innocence, sometimes it let itself lose its own significance.
And as I stood alone, the veil of hypocrisy took over.
