A Date To Remember…: #WriteBravely #WriteTribeProBlogger #FridayFictioneers

  "I love opal sunsets. Especially the ones that come, right after a heavy downpour," smiled Samantha gazing across the horizon. The sky embellished with dark-amber clouds, looked gorgeous. Vihaan and she were out on their second date. A perfect setting to get some romance started. "What's the big deal about sunsets? They come and [...]

Criminal: #MicroMondays

  The strawberries went disappearing each night. Some one was definitely having a field day, thought Nathan. Whodunit? The neighbourhood kids? But there was a criminal. Unsuspected, unbeknownst. Mr. Rabbit and his little clan.     @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@           Written as part of #MicroMondays, hosted by the gorgeous couple Varad of Loose [...]

Beyond Our Fears, Lies Fun: #WriteBravely #WriteTribeProBlogger #MondayMusings

  I spent all of last week in the pristine lap of the Havelock, in the Anadaman & Nicobar Islands; away from choking habitation and non-stop hum-drum of the city life. This vacation was a welcome respite from Wi-Fi and phone connectivity, cradled in the arms of nature, sun, sea, sand and occasional downpours. We [...]

MysTree: #WriteBravely #WriteTribeProBlogger #FridayFictioneers

      The ancient tree towers among the tropical vegetation of the Sands resort. It canopies the wooden benches, giving the guests a respite from the sunny days. A pair of woodpeckers nest here every spring. But each time the fledglings die, leaving a trail of blood. Also, what remains a mystery are the [...]

Breaking Bad: #WriteBravely #WriteTribeProblogger #MondayMusings

"I'm going out with my friends this evening for the Jazz festival", Mayra announced, nonchalantly. "But, Myra the doctors have asked you to rest it out for a while, before you can actually start going out. Else you'll fall sick again and have to miss school." "The doctors always over-dramatise the sickness and you believe [...]

The Unannounced Guest: #WriteTribeProblogger #WriteBravely #FridayFictioneers

"We found him on the porch. It's broken a wing," said the DH, almost thrusting a Mynah on my face. The nine-year-old piped in, "Mamma, isn't he handsome as hell? Can we keep him, pleaseeeee.” “I'd love to darling, but you know Gran is Orinthophobic, don't you!" “Orintho...what?" “She has a fear of birds.” “But [...]

Terminal? : #WriteBravely #WriteTribeProBlogger #MondayMusings

"She has a terminal illness which is in the last stages." The earth shattering news was broken to us with much aplomb by our family doctor. At that very moment I felt as though shards of glasses had pierced through my tough exterior, bruising me beyond repair. I badly wanted to rewind back to the [...]

A Night of Nostalgic Nebula: #WriteTribeProblogger #WriteBravely #FridayFictioneers

  Saturday, 5:46 A.M.: I haven't slept a wink. The receding moon is gaping at me blankly. Well, it was a decadent night of drinking and dancing, on the River Mandovi.     A night that also brought back memories from the yesteryears: of Rahul and I. When we had chatted on the same deck; [...]

Fourth time in a row!!   "I have struggled with the same issue for the last six years," she said to me with much angst in her voice. "Just when I think everything is going well and life's looking up for me, I'm given the same set of challenges. Challenges that I thought I had [...]

Walk a mile in my shoes And I will teach you a lesson or two; Of taking life in your stride When the hooded snake of challenge strikes.   Walk a mile in my shoes And I will teach you a lesson or two; Of forging ahead with a smile, Even though you may stumble [...]
