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

6 months post Corona- Does this really feel normal?

My friend and I were talking a few days back that its been 6 whole months since we last stepped into office- March 16th it was. It seems unbelievable the things each one of us have gone through.

And Raj loved his bread with a generous helping of jam or sauce. “We are like chalk and cheese” she exclaimed, “this ain’t working”. Raj was not one to give up.

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)

Week 1 of Self isolation- Not all is dark

It came like a typhoon and made us realise we are human, we are vulnerable. It takes a few moments to turn life topsy turvy.

Leap of faith #TellTaleThursday

I stood at the station waving her goodbye till I could see her silhouette disappear as the train moved farther on. At this odd hour, the station was empty. I looked at my watch, 5 days to go before I see her again, touch her, share a meal , hold hands, take her in my… Continue reading Leap 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. Thats’ when Grand Dada decided he had to bring in change. He started a new ritual. Every member of the… Continue reading Ripple Effect #FridayFictioneers

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
