Getting a haircut and shopping never felt so good! #CoronaDays

Yes its non essential no second thoughts about that. This is the reason this was one of the last services to open up and why most of us stayed away despite malls opening up their doors, saloons starting and fine dining rolling up its sleeve. Some of the things I loved doing before the pandemic… Continue reading Getting a haircut and shopping never felt so good! #CoronaDays

A letter from “Hope” #FictionMondays

As the new postmaster of this quaint little sleepy village of Dorfli, I had little to look forward to. I braced myself up for a sleepy day ahead. An old lady walked into the post office, hunched, frail, trembling- what stood out were her glistening eyes. She looked at me eagerly as I searched for… Continue reading A letter from “Hope” #FictionMondays

He won her over… Continue reading A dash of colour #Fiction Monday

Count your blessings- here is what the pandemic taught me

Marriages in times of Corona- a happy beginning (or ending)

Rita banged the tray on the dining table, she couldn’t take it anymore. The lockdown had made things really messy in an already troubled house. Rita and Alok with their 2 kids looked like a perfectly happy family on the outside but it was quite the opposite in reality. 12 years of marriage, 2 kids,… Continue reading Marriages in times of Corona- a happy beginning (or ending)

Coping mechanisms- A life beyond Dalgona

Social media flooded with coffee, chicken and cakes. Of course we no longer have that “so perfectly plated, surrounded by this scenic ambience” of the new fine dining restaurant in town, but no one’s leaving a stone unturned in making these gastronomical delights virtually available to for all to see. I quite enjoy the memes… Continue reading Coping mechanisms- A life beyond Dalgona
