A whiff of nostalgia

A whiff of nostalgia

I look outside my window. It is a bright and beautiful day with the lovely blue sky and the giant white fluffy clouds, the trees all green and the beautiful blooming flowers. I want to keep staring outside or better still I am tempted to go for a walk. But I look around me and reality strikes me. Ten huge cardboard boxes stare at me. […]

Moving on

Moving on

“Dad, can we just camp at this place?”, the little boy tried asking again while they dismantled the tent. It was his first hike. “No son, we can’t” “But why? This is such a nice place, it is comfortable and I’ve been a good boy all along” “That’s where you are wrong. You musn’t get too comfortable. Get out of your comfort zone. Don’t stop […]

The secret hideout

The secret hideout

I grabbed the things that I thought I would need and got into the car. I’d no destination in mind but I knew that I had to go away from the madness of the city. I needed peace to write my book. The mad rush of my daily routine didn’t let me concentrate on what I wanted to do. How wonderful it was during my […]

The dream job

The dream job

“What do you want to be when you grow up?” “A musician”. “That’s not even a job! Study well!”   She remembered this memory from her childhood. She’d studied hard, topped her class and had landed a dream job. Everyone around her thought she was happy and were even envious of her. The long hours at work left her with no time for anything. The […]

The wait

The wait

He had to find her. He hadn’t slept a wink all night for he couldn’t wait for the day to dawn. Separated from his beloved for no fault of his and detained in this hellhole, there wasn’t a single when he didn’t cry. They had dreamed of a life together and the war had crushed those dreams. That was so long ago. Would she still […]

The afternoon break

The afternoon break

“There she goes again!” “I wonder what she does there every afternoon. I know the view from her balcony is great, but it is weird” “Yeah, why does she have to close the door behind her? Does she smoke?” “It doesn’t seem like that” *************** “Finally some time to myself! Phew! I’ve waited for this time since morning”, she thought to herself as she settled […]

Who?

Who?

We kept walking along the isolated parts of the shore and an ancient house welcomed us. It looked spooky and I just wanted to return. But Tom wouldn’t agree. The house though old looked strong. There was a cabinet which had a lot of strange stuff. While Tom was still busy inspecting the items, I turned around and saw a man. “Finally you are back!”, […]

The girl outside the train

The girl outside the train

It was the best part of my daily routine. I used to wait eagerly to see you for that one glimpse of yours would make my day. You looked beautiful and the early morning rays of the sun only made it better. The only part of the hour long journey that I liked was when the train stopped near your station. You wouldn’t get into […]

It is urgent

It is urgent

“Can you meet me now? It is urgent.” “But what is the matter? Are you okay?” “Just meet me now, will you?” He rushed to meet her. “Something is wrong”, he thought. “Was she sick? What had happened? Wait, does she want to break up with me?”, he wondered. She was there waiting for him and he ran to her. “What is the matter?” “There […]

Home coming

Home coming

She lit the lamps though it wasn’t dark. She’d prepared all his favourite dishes and had meticulously arranged them on the table the way he liked it. Tonight was special. She was going to see him after so long! She waited patiently while pouring more oil into the lamps to keep them burning. Eventually, the food went cold, the wind blew off the lamps. She […]
