That Unkindly Stammer

The shivery utterance was all he had, the words would play hide and seek with his mouth, the excitement to deliver his ideas would be blocked by that unkindly stammer, as if he was banged by a hammer, no, he isn’t a handicapped, neither he is a loser, he is just a bit more edgy […]

A life will be left behind!

A life will be left behind! The house you called your home for long, the people whom you made your own. The words you sang to share your heart, a few of them were once your part. They all will go, forgotten to mind A life will be left behind… Some you’ll forget and some […]

Life in The Limbo It was a hot day in May. A magical afternoon. Air shimmered, leaves floated in the air eddies as the sun beat down on the dusty streets of my village. I was free like a dog: a dog with no mistress and no chain. I sniffed. I snuffled. My nose turned […]

Silence of lambs – a parable..

Srishti was a little girl. She was full of questions, inexhaustible energy and a lot of spontaneous ideas and little girls usually are. Her family was proud of her.

A little lie

P { margin-bottom: 0.21cm; } Ankit stood in the center of the room. Principal ma’am took a step towards him and hissed: where do you learn such evil things from? Ankit looked up – then lowered his moist eyes- and kept wriggling his toes in his cheap canvas shoes. He wanted to say many things, […]

The child- A story..

Brahma, the creator. His one day equals our one million years. Brahma’s one cycle- Kalpa- equals our one thousand cycles. But each Kalpa begins with a day of healing and wholeness.
