Coping mechanisms- A life beyond Dalgona

Social media flooded with coffee, chicken and cakes. Of course we no longer have that “so perfectly plated, surrounded by this scenic ambience” of the new fine dining restaurant in town, but no one’s leaving a stone unturned in making these gastronomical delights virtually available to for all to see. I quite enjoy the memes… Continue reading Coping mechanisms- A life beyond Dalgona

Adu never knew a life without his friends, Mommy and Daddy were always busy with work and his empty life was filled up with the boys gang and his Ipad. How cool was that! And then came Corona- Mommy Daddy at home with Adu but no friends and no playground.

When life comes full circle #SundayPhotoFiction

I looked at the bookshelf that Rohan had bought, the books neatly lined up.-varied colours, sizes, each carrying stories of diverse people and their journeys, happy and sad ones, funny ones and scary ones. Once upon a time I would have devoured them all, without a tea break , such was my love for books.… Continue reading When life comes full circle #SundayPhotoFiction

And then I found my happily ever after #TellTaleThursday

I shut my eyes hoping that sleep would come, but it continued to elude me. My eyes were puffy from crying the whole night. What do I do? How do I get over Josh? The one whom I thought I want to spend the rest of my life with, get married, have babies, grow old… Continue reading And then I found my happily ever after #TellTaleThursday

In pursuit of a miracle #WriteBravely

I stood in front of the mirror, my eyes shut tightly. My heart was beating so loudly, the thumping could be heard all around the room, my palm was moist with sweat, my throat parched. My life passed before my eyes like a blur. Every time I stood before this mirror and looked at myself,… Continue reading In pursuit of a miracle #WriteBravely

This New Year is going to be different. I am going to find someone worthwhile to date, my clock is ticking, I need to hurry up. What are the chances of conceiving at 37?

Small Great Things-here is why as a dusky woman, I could relate to this book so much.

I have always been a die hard fan of Jodi Picoult. I started off with “My Sister’s Keeper” and I knew I had found an author whose books I can truly treasure. They are not the fairytale, romantic books, but talk of death, disease, court cases, despair, grief but at the same time, there is… Continue reading Small Great Things-here is why as a dusky woman, I could relate to this book so much.

A new dawn #FlashFiction #TellTaleThursday

Smriti rubbed her palms together as a cool breeze blew. Dried leaves lay around her feet. 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

Finding my rainbow #SundayPhotoFiction #MyFriendAlexa

Baby Ocotillo looked at his Mumma, tears trickling down his eyes as he asked her the same question he had been asking since the day he was born. Why am I so barren? When will I bloom like other flowers? Is my life destined to be this plain and ugly? Why me? Mumma Ocotillo smiled… Continue reading Finding my rainbow #SundayPhotoFiction #MyFriendAlexa
