I wish

If wishes were horses;

I wish life had a F5 button to refresh when things just seem to be stuck without any movement!!!

Value & Recognise ~ This week

Ek aur ek Gyarah!

'Ask and you shall Recieve' goes a saying. Last week I had prayed to God for some reasons to feel good and celebrate as there seems to be so much of a stagnancy in my life. . Aha! Some of those wishes when He was surely listening to Me. He said AMEN and Lo!! It seems to be raining awards for Me, giving me so many reasons every day to smile, feel good, bask in the love & attention showered and write sweet reflective posts here;


Ahem...Ahem...

Last when I wrote a feel-good post I was badly looking for reasons to write one such post again to continue the trend. It was not long before I got the chance.

I wish

If wishes were horses;

I would wish LIFE came with a remote control. I could rewind and replay the moments I loved, fast forward the ones I hated and pause whenever I am tired or everything around Me.

He, She & It (Flash Fiction)

Ramaiyya lit the lantern and looked around the house. The emptiness of the house seemed to haunt him every moment as he thought about her. He missed her presence each day after he returned from a daylong work at the fields. The way she waited for him at the door, made all this favourite dishes for dinner, heard him as he shared the day’s happenings with her, pressed his head in case it ached, held him tightly as she slept – he missed everything. Many times he would almost decide to bring her back from her parents’ house but would stop himself. 
He loved her a lot but could not forgive her for it. No...He could not forget what she had done. How could she….he thought. Everything was going well in their lives except for the fact that she was not able to conceive since a long a time. They tried all possible ways to find a solution but to no avail. As the sarcasm of people around them increased one day in a fit of rage she blamed him for it. How dare she….He cannot have a problem. It had to…

7 months already gone in this year and the 8th month running…. Phew!! This year has been like some running race where I am simply clueless how fast the times seem to have flown away.

The Lucky Day (Flash Fiction)

Every day was a challenge for Santo as she struggled to make two ends meet. Collecting garbage from people’s homes, sorting useless things out from the useful items was a daunting task. It meant hours of scanning each and every garbage bag she received. Moreover her fragile 74 year old body refused to accommodate beyond a point.  She would have to strain her eyes till they started watering just to ensure she did not miss out anything valuable in the garbage.
The pastiwala paid her peanuts compared to the efforts she put in. She would argue endlessly with him to get an extra 5 rupees. But today she would not do that. She smiled as she walked towards her hut. There was a sense of achievement in her eyes. 'No garbage collection...' today she thought as she ran her hand over her blouse and silently thanked the Almighty.  Neatly tucked inside was a ten rupee note she had found near the garbage can today morning. Today was her lucky day.....

On the eve of Rakshabandhan I cannot help but miss my dearest brother as he is away from all of us in a different country trying to carve a niche for himself. This post is specially dedicated to him, just to let him know what he means to me. I know most of the times it is all understood, but sometimes it just needs to be told and expressed.
