Tears streamed down my cheeks, I kept wiping them away and blinked my eyes focussing on the road ahead. The last thing I wanted was to cause an accident. The sky was grey, clouds hovered all around as thunder rumbled – it felt like the weather perfectly summed up my inner turmoil. The heated conversation… Continue reading Epiphany #FictionMondays
I looked at myself in the mirror for the 20th time, “do I look good? Have I overdone my make up? My hair- when was the last time I left it open, it was always tied in a messy bun with strands falling down my face which I brushed aside” This feels good, the hair… Continue reading Date night #FictionMonday
The last trip we took as a family was in September 2019, a 4 generation all women trip to Rajasthan. I had many plans for 2020, but life had something else in store for all of us. Post the outbreak of Covid, we haven’t travelled anywhere, though we do step out of the house to… Continue reading A day trip to Bhigwan Bird Sanctuary

A storm sometimes takes you by surprise, a perfectly pleasant day , sunny and warm and all of a sudden you see dark clouds looming overhead. Thunder rumbles, a flash of lightning and before you realise, its a full fledged storm. You scramble to take shelter nearby, any place that seems remotely safe.
