My Mom and Dad

“Anjali, do your homework”, shouted Meena at the top of her voice as she hurried along to prepare dinner after a long day at work. Usually it took a lot of effort to get Anjali to do her homework, but today was different. Smiling, Anjali took out her box of colour pencils and drawing book and began her drawing assignment. After she’d finished cooking, Meena […]

Over a cuppa

Over a cuppa

“If we were having coffee on that first date, we wouldn’t have been together! I still remember that day distinctly. Those were wonderful times! “, she said as she sipped some tea. The tea was the way she’d liked except for the sugar that had disappeared over time.   She sat there for a while, slowly sipping the tea, as memories kept coming back. She […]

Red Herring

“So you don’t remember me? Let me remind you something about your first day college. Weren’t you wearing a violet top?” “Yes and how do you know that?”, she tried respond pretending to appear calm despite wondering how did he even remember that. “Because I was one of the persons who tried talking to you when you just cried and ran away. And yeah that […]

Clockwork Orange

Clockwork Orange

Much to my disappointment, I couldn’t get an answer to my question. The anchor proceeded to announce the next part of the program but I was no longer interested. I don’t know why but I had this urge of finding out more about this girl and I wouldn’t give up. I began thinking what to do next. The next thing on the agenda for the […]

The Yellow Brick Road

The Yellow Brick Road

Was it my story? I wished it was! It had a lot less pain than my life. No one knew the extent to which I was hurt. Though I was crying each day from within I had to put on a “I’m okay” face and go about doing my job. I wish I had someone to talk to, but I had none. All those memories […]

The grass looks greener on the other side

The grass looks greener on the other side

I took out my camera and clicked a few pictures just to ensure that my camera was working fine. Lily had managed to find us seats quite close to the stage. And the shrinking violet arrived and I was obligated to click some pictures of her. It felt weird though. Back in college, I was supposed to be her senior and here I was clicking […]

Out of the blue

Out of the blue

The more I thought about it, the feeling of having made my worst mistake by agreeing to get this book published grew. I was nervous and I really didn’t know what I was going to speak. The event manager of the publishing house had briefed me about what was going to happen. An introduction about the book and about me, reading a few paragraphs from […]

Mood Indigo

Mood Indigo

“I always get that mood indigo, Since my baby said goodbye. And in the evenin’ when the lights are low,  I’m so lonely I could cry.” The song was played on the radio as I was sitting in the car, waiting for the signal to turn green. Ah! That song! It was one of my favourites a few years ago. But it had an air of […]

Shrinking Violet

Shrinking Violet

I was late again and this wasn’t even an early morning appointment. I was supposed to cover a book launch this evening and that was all I knew about it. Oh that and and the venue. As I sat in the cab waiting for the signal to turn green, I decided to have a look at the invite so that I’d know what to look […]

Will you be my sunshine?

Will you be my sunshine?

He liked the outdoors. I preferred staying indoors with a book in my hand. But we were good together. “Meet me at 8 am near the Gardens” he’d said. We’d never met that early! It was a lovely day, with the sun shining and a gentle breeze. He walked into the garden with that never fading smile. Before I could even say “Hi” he was kneeling […]
