Waterballoon expert Terror is confident that he’s the best in his colony till he is challenged to target the mysterious Pagla Miyan. Terror takes the challenge, but how do you hit an old man who is never seen in daylight and is rumoured to be a vampire who eats kids?
Terror Strikes Back is a short story in Celebrate! Holi, an anthology of fiction, activities and legends about the colourful festival of Holi by Hachette India. When the editor of the series contacted me to write a story, I warned her that I couldn’t write something without a supernatural angle to it. She was open to the idea and this story is a result of two weeks of wondering what could happen when one combines supernatural elements and the festival of Holi. I laughed in its creation and hope you do too.
