Goodbye #FFFAW #FlashFiction

I watch Jason from the window as he briskly walks down the steps. I look at the watch on my wrist- one of my most precious gifts which Jason had brought for me last Christmas from his bonus. Seconds pass by. I wish I could turn time back- to the day we went out to… Continue reading Goodbye #FFFAW #FlashFiction

Seen, not heard? Is that you woman? #MondayMusings #FeministMondays

Picture this- an official meeting where the room is full of an enthusiastic young crowd who have just joined the organisation as interns. The ratio of men v/s women is not as skewed as it gets when you move higher up the ladder. The manager talks for the first 15 minutes and then opens up… Continue reading Seen, not heard?

YOLO- You only live once. #AtoZChallenge #BlogchatterA2Z

I was browsing the net listlessly, my mind was thinking about Suraj and our incomplete trip to Europe.

Nysa is 28 and its her wedding day today. The house is in utter mayhem as we run around making sure everything thats needed is there and we haven’t missed anything. I decided to do away with the silk saree and wore a comfortable salwar today, much to the dismay of some of the relatives.… Continue reading (Un) Empty Nest #BlogchatterA2Z #AtoZChallenge

This morning I woke up to a shocking news.  Rekha my neighbour had passed away from a sudden cardiac arrest. She had been busy wrapping up the kitchen work before she called it a night when she felt the pain in her chest. She collapsed and was rushed to the hospital where she was declared… Continue reading Stunned #AtoZChallenge #BlogchatterA2Z
