Rakhi

A thread so pure your heart knows for sure.. This bond is everlasting, there is absolutely no flabergasting! He’s naughty and naive, he’s rolled annoyance up his sleeve.. Despite all the facade, he’ll never fail in leaving you awed! A brother, a friend rolled all up in one, a combination so lethal he can definitely…

Beware, Gap ahead!

Scooting through those adolescent high-school years, how often have each of us come across the term “Generation Gap“. If you haven’t, then clearly you have grown up in a totally different world from mine and definitely not in India for sure. Aunties raising eyebrows if your skirt were a couple of inches above your knee…

Decoding “Lakshmi Bomb”!

The better half claims I am his lucky charm, so be it filling up forms to apply for that superb rental apartment or ordering a coffee, apparently if I do it, it’s always better!! Initially I thought “How sweet is that!” only to realise this is all a faux. Smart ass is just being lazy….

The art of letting GO!

They say it’s easier said than done. I say is it really?! Let’s get to the basics questions: Had a heartbreak? Was it a terrible breakup or even worst – a divorce? Lost someone really close? A pet, your close friend or family? Did you get fired? Almost got a promotion but lost it to…

Short Stories Series (The flying bride – Part1)

Short Stories Series (A Bond from Beyond – Part 1)

She ran with all her might, like there was no tomorrow. Her green studded lehenga was now well above her ankles, her bare feet scraped against the cement roads as she charged behind the speeding car. She wasn’t sure if her feet were bleeding, but she felt no pain. None whatsoever. All she saw was…

Two to None!

If you have lived in India for a few years, you would reckon the love Indians have for a cup of tea – Chai as we call it. Be it kick starting your morning or refreshing your evening. Burning the midnight oil studying for exams or chit chatting with friends making weird plans. Breaking awkward silences…

Brissy Blues

My weekends are pretty much spent in making this Australian Airlines more wealthier, not that they need any of my money but the better half is insistent I do so. Getting to the airport from work is a task, I change two and a half trains before I can get there. Half? Yeah the walk…

New Girl in the City

Tak Tak Tak, the streets are bustling with sounds of high heels and rushing footsteps. Everyone is running around here… some to the office, some to drop off the kids, some to school and some are literally running…fitness I assume. Making way between them I try to make sense of the Platform numbers at the…
