    Manju’s entry into the world was perniciously timed with her mothers exit. Post the tumultuous delivery of daughter number 3; Manju’s father and his family had stormed out of the village Mission hospital, leaving behind the few minutes old, scrawny Manju to be welcomed with nothing but a frail and wailing grandmother.    Manju’s grandmother worked hard to make ends meet with the additional burden bestowed upon her by God.Manju grew up to be a quiet and responsible child.Although her granny took good care of her,Manju felt a sense disgust about her self.She often wished to feel beautiful, but neither her appearance nor her circumstances, gave her any reason.The only time Manju’s heart would flutter was when she watched their next door neighbour, Laxmi akka at the village chowk eating Pani puris!Something about her face would change with every burst of the crunchy puri in her mouth.Even the mogra strings in AKKA’s glistening,oil braided hair looked more beautiful while sh

    After being neck deep in completing her presentation for 32hours without a wink, Riddhi decided to head straight to Nook; a nearby Restobar. She definitely needed a stiff one, before hitting the sack.Meandering through the packed restaurant to her usual bar stool, her eye caught a couple of familiar faces.It was a mother- daughter duo from her building, probably waiting for the man of the house to join them for dinner.As soon as Riddhi waved across to them, the young mother distracted her little daughter to look away in another direction.Riddhi was fully aware that within the conservative walls of her building compound, her care a damn lifestyle and reckless ways were frowned upon.Not being rattled at all, she ordered her Taslisker double on the rocks and munched away on the accompanying soya chips and almonds. Deciding to forgo dinner, she called for an Uber and moved into the open patio for a quick smoke.Vandana and her very sleepy six year old were looking for a rickshaw to get back home. Riddhi offered th

  • Maid of Honour.
    Asmita Javdekar | 20-Feb-2019
    Divya was turning 17.This was her first year away from her family.Back home, birthdays meant a fragrant string of jasmine flowers, snugly perched over her tightly oiled bun of thick black hair.She would visit the local deity to seek blessings and her mother would prepare rice and jaggery kheer; a staple at all family celebrations.Besides this, her birthday was like any other day of her life.This year however, there was a vibe of uncertainty.Divya was in Banglore, a big city.She was not with her own family.Clearly, the local deity or the kheer was not even in the picture.In fact, no body around her was even aware of her birthday.She had gotten used to sweeping away these emotional nudges.She woke up, had her bath, prepared dabba for the kids of the household, made tea for the family, pulled out the eggs, bread, cereals, peanut butter for everybody’s breakfast and went to wake the kids up for school.Never before was their bedroom door locked!She gently knocked on it and called out to the older kid, Risha.

  • The perfect mistake
    Diyaa | 11-Feb-2019
    Sara was a charming twenty-one years young lady who recently stepped into her newly wedded life. Couple of months into this wedlock, she was still trying to adjust to the new life. It was a novel experience for her, from changing homes to cities to friends and now families. Everything was different. Since she was young, she fitted herself very easily into her new space. Rahul, her husband worked with the Indian navy, because of which he had to shift his home base near the port. He had left his family soon after he joined work. His parents lived in a city which was three hours away from his.   He was used to living alone many months of the year while the other months he sailed to far off places. He took good care of Sara now that he had her around. He made her feel very comfortable in his world. Clubbing, dinners, movies had filled their days. They even did groceries together. She remembered their honeymoon to snowcapped mountains in the Swiss. That one week had really bought them close to each other.

  • A short love story
    Jyoti | 09-Sep-2018
    She came to know about him through a common writer friend on FB. She checked his profile and started reading his blogs. He was doing very well in his field but his passion was writing and that reflected through his blogs. She got hooked to his easy to read, simple yet heart touching writing and couldn’t wait for his new article to appear on the blog. It was as if she was in a competition to see who read that blog first! It continued for a couple of months and she started to know him through his writings. She clinged to whatever little information she could get about him through the blogs. She could say that he was a sincere, loyal and intelligent person with a zest for life. Most of her free time was spent reading his blogs and wondering what excuse she could make to meet him! And one fine day an opportunity knocked on her door and she was on cloud 9. He was mentoring a workshop for newbie writers and this was a perfect chance to meet him. Initially she was very excited about going to the workshop and

    When you want to talk to someone and you can't is the worst feeling ever..... 'Sometimes it can be dangerous to respect and trust someone' Here is a small story of a boy and was badly restricted to talk to her....... One day a true boy confessed one thing to her and was refused. And she started making him feel that he is guilty and done wrong and a start judging him like a bad person.......... but he was not at all. He respect her very much and cared but still......... And he was restricted to talk to her forever even when he saw her 4-5 times in a week but he can't do nothing because 'he was not a shameless boy and not a misbehaving boy'. 'So never go too deep because it is very hard to come out when you have not done anything wrong with a special person' . Be careful and try not be restricted to talk because once you restricted you cannot do nothing....

    Like coffee on a cold winter night, Like the morning sunrise after a dark stormy night, he walked into her life, her Mr. RIGHT !   No it wasn’t the cliched love at first sight, nor was it the typical conventional love story; meet, date, repeat! NOOOO, this was absofuckinglutelyexceptional.   They saw each other everyday, but rarely even said ‘Hi’. Their paths crossed several times a day, but every time they’d just walk away. Then one beautiful morning, he sat beside her talking about some random shit, (probably the first time they ever spoke) and she was totally amused by his non-stop talking, coordinated hand gestures and timely expressions. Something about him piqued her interest, she had no idea what. Maybe his non-stop talking and expressions :p   He hadn’t intrigued her enough for her to be attracted to him. She enjoyed his company but his absence didn’t really matter, when he spoke, she’d laugh and giggle but she’d be ok
