Of love and loss #TellTaleThursday

The beach always held a special place in her heart. As kids they ran and splashed water, made sand castles and lay down under the sun as they heard the sound of waves crashing nearby. The world was their oyster. Joel and she were meant to be. As they grew up, sparks flew. It was… Continue reading Of love and loss #TellTaleThursday

An ounce of faith #TellTaleThursday

I walk into the shopping mall, hiding my face carefully in the shawl. I look around frantically- at that man sharing an ice cream cone with his toddler, the grandma immersed in her book at Crosswords, the lovey dovey couple posing for a selfie and the man leering at me. Shouldn’t I boil with anger… Continue reading An ounce of faith #TellTaleThursday

Ripple Effect #FridayFictioneers

The house was always noisy- a big family lived here. While it looked perfect from the outside, it was quite a contrasting situation within the 4 walls. Daily tiffs which blew up into major fights.

How I loved winters- the chilly days, hot cups of cocoa, going up the mountains and skiing with Jeeya. Jeeya and I- our world was complete. My daughter, friend, guide, agony… Continue reading Only If #FFFAW #FlashFiction

Not so funny #FFFAW #FlashFiction

I love long drives, racing down the highway with my favourite music barring through the speaker, as the cool breeze blows in my ears. Without a care about the world. It sets me free. I badly needed the road trip after the fiasco at work. I suddenly see a lone figure waving at me frantically.… Continue reading Not so funny #FFFAW #FlashFiction

The Proposal #FFFAW #FlashFiction

Maya looked around in awe- she was wonderstruck by the natural beauty. Birds chirped in the distance and the water glistened as the sun shone brightly. While she would have loved to sing her favourite Bollywood romantic song in such a wonderful setting, there was something that made her uneasy. It was Rahul, her childhood… Continue reading The Proposal #FFFAW #FlashFiction
