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 […]

#AtoZChallenge : Unwritten

Not all days are the same. There are some days when you feel all pumped up, with energy oozing out from your body that you want to conquer the world. Things seem to be going your way and you are very happy about it. And then there are some days when you are depressed. Nothing seems to be going right and everything seems like a […]

#AtoZChallenge : Online

I’m back after a tiring day at work and while I wait for dinner to be prepared, I pick up my cellphone and I go to have a check on my online life. I begin by checking for social media updates!   I scroll through the endless pictures on Instagram, double tapping the ones that I like. There are pictures of beautiful travel destinations, yummy […]

#AtoZChallenge : Empty

#AtoZChallenge : Empty

From the always enthusiastic Alana, I’ve now become a lost Alana!   Our lives mostly flow on a fixed course. Yes, there are little diversions that we need to take occasionally but even then it usually follows the same old path. Birth, Education, Job, Marriage, Old Age and then Death. The stages are the same.  We have our dreams, our hopes and our aspirations. But […]

#AtoZChallenge :Dear Future Husband

I looked at myself in the mirror and I liked the way I looked. In fact, for a moment I couldn’t believe that it was my reflection in the mirror. The gown was a beautiful one and it suited me well.  I got into the nicely decorated car and we drove to the church.   “Congratulations!”   That is what you want to say right? […]

#AtoZChallenge : Cheap Thrills

I look at my bank balance and worry lines begin to form on my forehead. It is just the 15th of the month and there is barely any money left. Bank balance reads Rs. 1000. I search or rather hunt in the pockets of all my old jeans, open all bags and purses with the hope of finding some money. But what do I find […]

“Take a deep breath. Breathe in, breathe out!” “It is going to be okay”   No, that isn’t any of my friends or a family member consoling me. Its me, Alana talking to myself like I always do! I’ve a job interview and I’m freaking out.   I stayed up all night to prepare for the interview and I felt pretty confident or so I […]

#AtoZChallenge : Anything but Ordinary

I feel that I’m on top of the world. The dazzling lights, the beautiful floral arrangements, the stage and not to forget the large number of people who are here today. They are all here for me. I hear my name being called out and I stand up to walk towards the stage. I’m wearing a beautiful designer dress. A diamond necklace and matching earrings […]
