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

She picked up one as she thought about its life – autumn was the time everyone loved posing for pictures, the hues of orange, yellow, green and brown made for a splendid Instagram pic. Did anyone care about this… Continue reading A new dawn #FlashFiction #TellTaleThursday

No longer a fairy tale #SundayPhotoFiction

Deep down in the woods, lay a big bad wolf who ate up little girls. So keep your eyes down, hide yourself in your cloak, do not talk to strangers and do not take a detour. Wasn’t she bored of these silly rules which applied only to girls? So she broke them one day. She… Continue reading No longer a fairy tale #SundayPhotoFiction

For the love of slippers #FFFAW #FlashFiction

Rows and Rows of slippers, different designs, colours, texture as they adorned the makeshift rack she had built. Every morning she spent a few minutes with them- just she and the shoes. Her face gleamed as she touched each one of them lovingly, caressing them and blowing a kiss. “Why on earth do you need… Continue reading For the love of slippers #FFFAW #FlashFiction
