Green Grass Curtain



“This green grass is blocking my view,” Protested Sunder.

“You are here to work. You are not paid to look outside. Number of mistakes per day are creeping up. I want your full concentration on work,” announced his manager.

Sunder’s desk is in the ground floor of the imposing red brick building. He was lucky to have a window seat. Monotony of working on spreadsheets used to be broken, when he looked out of the window. Not any more. Sunder can hear but cannot see outside. Like a curtain, green grass has blocked his view, his sense of freedom.

    1. Thank you for reading. True the idea of obstruction stuck me when I saw the picture. I guess there lies the beauty. We all see same object differently.


  1. Good description of how our surroundings can affect our mood. And interesting concept, that the presence of the plants equals and absence of variety for the worker. I guess no one asked him, before the change was made.

  2. Welcome to Friday Fictioneers. Very good first one, to boot! Too bad managers don’t realise the importance of seeing something else besides their paperwork to keep them stimulated…
