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.

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

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
