#AtoZChallenge : Phosphenes

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 […]

Dusk till dawn

Dusk till dawn

I walk towards the lake as the sky breaks into colours of dusk. I stand mesmerized yet again. Memories of you come rushing to my mind – of the day we met, the day you knelt down with the ring. We’d spent so many nights here, watching the lovely skies from dusk till dawn. Though I was scared of darkness, your presence gave me courage. […]

The Runaway

The Runaway

Tears trickled down from her eyes.   “How can you do this to us after all we’ve done for you?” “Because I’ve my dreams to achieve”   Until then, she was so¬†accustomed to living the life that she’d been living so far, that she never thought about living it any other way. But all this time, she’d known. Even in the comfort that she had […]

With bated breath, I wait

With bated breath, I wait

From the time I knew you, you meant the world to me. As I now wait with bated breath, I go down the memory lane thinking about all the times you made me wait.   All those times when you were late, my heart would beat faster and I’d hope that you were okay. You didn’t understand why I was so anxious and often made […]

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 […]
