Be what you want to be #FFFAW #FlashFiction

Saroj looked in awe at the box full of brightly coloured threads. Blue, Pink, Red, Green- how beautiful they would look when blended into a shimmery sweater for little Prisha or a scarf for Ma. When Saroj was young and visited Grandma in summer holidays, they sat for hours in the little room as Grandma… Continue reading Be what you want to be #FFFAW #FlashFiction

My Wish #TellTaleThursday

Fairy Lights shone on the porch and a beautiful rangoli adorned the front door. The aroma of karanji and chaklis wafted through the air. The lamps shone bright but Suhas and Saroja’s world was dark as usual. Today was like any other day for them. The decked up house and the lights did little to… Continue reading My Wish #TellTaleThursday

Amy looked at Sweeny as she contentedly swam in her fancy little aquarium. “Are you truly happy little fish? In this aquarium?

Did anyone care about this… Continue reading A new dawn #FlashFiction #TellTaleThursday

With the birth of my daughter, “me time” became scarce and I wanted to optimise the limited time I have by making the experience worthwhile. I deliberately stayed… Continue reading The Good Wife- Here is why this series is a must watch #MyFriendAlexa

Do you have a Plan B? #MyFriendAlexa

I recently came across a “Humans of Bombay” post which covered actor Rajkumar Rao. He spoke about his dreams, his struggles to gain recognition in tinsel town. One thing that stood out was his raw passion and his sticking to Plan A- that is making it big as an actor in Bollywood. He never had… Continue reading Do you have a Plan B? #MyFriendAlexa
