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 […]

The bubbles

The bubbles

Image Source She kept blowing bubbles into the air as if she was a kid. That was what I liked about her- her innocence, her childlike ways and the manner in which she found happiness in the little joys of life and she kept spreading positive vibes around her. As I kept admiring her from a distance like I always did, I remembered the time […]

The reunion

The reunion

Life is precious!

Life is precious!

Image source As the waves crashed on the shore and withdrew to sea, I felt the sea calling out to me and drawing me into its depths and I kept walking deeper into the sea.

Sands of time

Sands of time

Image source Walking by the seaside, I couldn’t help but notice how much the surroundings had changed, yet, I was happy to see that my favourite corner on the beach remained unchanged by time.

Sky is the limit

Sky is the limit

Image source The luggage was all packed and arranged neatly in front of her. As the time of her departure drew closer, she kept asking herself if she really wanted to go.

Your loss, not mine

Your loss, not mine

Source Years of friendship was forgotten in a matter of a few moments and the reason for it was nothing but a misunderstanding. I was ignored and I was dropped from the group without even getting a chance to explain my side of the story.

Gone but not forgotten

Gone but not forgotten

Image Source As she was cleaning her cupboard she found a few photographs and couldn’t stop staring at them. They were the reminders of all the happy memories that they had together and made her miss him all the more. Life became difficult and they drifted apart as the spark they once shared was lost.
