Mistake.

He had no inkling of what he’d done. He’d prised her apart, promising to always guard her, and had at the end, left her open, wounds fresh and bleeding. She couldn’t see how heavy a burden she was for him, how hard he’d been dragging her before he succumbed to his own magnanimous promises. SheContinue reading “Mistake.”

Of angels and demons.

Jacob walked away one fine sunny morning. No explanations, no answers, no smile and no acknowledgment of her existence in his life! Sarah was left baffled and groping at the blank expanse her life had become without him. But in that tough lesson which life gave to her to learn, she exceeded expectations. She became excited about learning –Continue reading “Of angels and demons.”

Still looking…

Silently he stood, wrinkled eyes wide, mouth pursed, Putting together the world piece by piece. The trees had grown up only to be sheared, The jungles turned into concrete. The view from his window of nesting birds, Had been replaced by hoardings of beautiful girls. The balcony of the next house never opened, The childrenContinue reading “Still looking…”

1 day to go!

Facebook wants to tell me how my year has been. If I go by that, all I did in 2014 was sketch a few portraits, go to a few restaurants with a bunch of people, and get pictures clicked for my sister’s #100happydays! Well, that’s not how it was, Facebook. Exactly a year ago, my fatherContinue reading “1 day to go!”

2 days to go.

With 2 days to go in 2014, here’s one of my most important life lessons: People will come and people will go. Good times won’t last as long as you want them to. Forevers don’t exist in reality. A relationship, any relationship, takes work. Sometimes the other person will feel your love to be constrictiveContinue reading “2 days to go.”

As he cleared his bed, to retire for the night, he coaxedContinue reading “Longing to love.”

The Night of the Wedding.

“That is a beautiful wedding dress you’re wearing! Do you need any help?” Sweta came in, asking cheerfully. “No, you’ve done so much already. Thank you so much! Your entire hotel staff has been very helpful,” gushed the bride, Payal. “That’s the job, you know,” pat came the reply, knowing fully well that she always gave in moreContinue reading “The Night of the Wedding.”

Courage does not come with age.

She sat quietly in the corner of the class. At the edge of the seat. She was staring at the blackboard in front of her, thoughts wandering elsewhere. The teacher was writing in white. Her classmates were copying. Her partner nudged her out of her reverie, beckoned her to scribble along.

Where the heart speaks more than the mind…

Writing has always been a passion for me… Playing with words, delving into thoughts, exploring new waves of emotions… that’s more of my style! My happier times have probably been spent penning down those happy memories… This blog will see it all — happiness, dejection, anger, love, friendship, frustration, elation, success, failure, joys, dreams, inspirations…Continue reading “Where the heart speaks more than the mind…”
