I always found my solace in silence. Talking to people wasn’t my thing and I would shudder at the thought of talking to anyone. I spoke the bare minimum that was required to get by at work. Spending time alone was my usual thing. Books were the only company that I needed. Lunch breaks were reading time for me. It helped me spend my time […]

When I decided to move to the city, nothing prepared me for all the changes that were coming my way. Life had changed in ways I had never imagined. The big city with its many people never ceases to surprise me. Though it has been a while, I still gape in awe when I see the tall buildings that seem to reach for the sky. […]

The cool breeze blowing on an otherwise hot summer day, brought along with it some relief. The sound of our easy conversation drowned the noise of our surroundings. We kept walking for a while for we had no destination in mind. The friendliness and warmth that your words had put me at ease. No, I wasn’t supposed to be so comfortable. But it all seemed […]

The clock struck 7 and the Church bells rang too. I was kneeling down, with my arms folded in prayer. Though my knees hurt, I kept on praying for I knew you needed my prayers. I was led into another room. There was sorrow written on everyone’s face and it had been so for a few days now. Silence. And more silence. No one spoke […]

She walked, slowly dragging herself bearing the burden of disappointment of yet another day at work. It had been the same routine for some time now and she went about it everything with no zeal or enthusiasm. The day began often with a sleepless night spent questioning the decisions she’d made. All her life couldn’t have been a mistake, but so it seemed.   All […]

My usual Saturday routine of waking up late in the morning had been missed. I woke up irritated for I hadn’t slept well last night. I picked a few things that I needed and put them into my bag as I had to travel. It was just a matter of a couple of days. But I liked the peace and quiet that Saturdays had to […]

Nothing seemed right and everything that I did seemed to go the wrong way. Life was a mess. It often happens that you try to keep yourself strong, you tell yourself that everything is going to be alright. But whatever happens, every single thing that happens seems to tell you otherwise. My life had become like that. There seemed to be no order. It was […]

It had been a long day and I knew that I had to leave. The ringing of my phone shattered the silence of the place. I stared it wasn’t a number that I recognized. When I answered the call, a calm voice greeted me. “Good evening Ma’am. You have a cab waiting for you at the gate. Could you please get into it?” “But I […]

The chatter of the birds wakes me up and I try to open my eyes as the rays of the morning sun greet me. The smell of the freshly bloomed jasmine wafts in the air with the cool morning breeze that brings with it the goodness of a new day. Today feels like a good day, like everyday should be. I get out of my […]

I fidget with the keys as I wonder if I can do this. It has been a while now and I know that I should have gotten used to it. But it is hard and I know that it will always be hard. I make up my mind and I tell myself that I can do this. I fidget with the keys some more before […]
