” I’ll be late for dinner tonight”, he said as he closed the bedroom door behind him.

Bare bodies,hugging skins and wet cold eyes.
A husky voice called out, “Diana!Diana!”. The lady lying at the edge of the bed, clad in a sheer white robe, jerk opened her eyes. Her face lit up to a honey-glow in the shimmering light. She looked up into a mesmerizing and penetrating gaze. Continue reading The White Rose(part1)
“Arrrrghhhh!! Captain Yellowpants, here I come.”, cried Ayush with his plastic sword in hand and pounced on his big brother.
“Yo ho ho! Matey, bring it on!”, exclaimed the older one and grabbed his little brother by the waist as they chuckled in the back seat of the car.
The lady on the front seat seemed lost in some abstract thoughts. As the car waited in the ferry line, her husband consolated,” Don’t worry, Ayush will be happy there.Its the best boarding school in town.”
Ayush recalled a line from his Civics book, “Happiness is where family is”.

There’s a light at the end of the tunnel
There’s a light they say,
There’s a light at the end of the tunnel?
I stare in dismay.
There’s a light at the end of the tunnel!
I fear the unknown.
There’s a light at the end of the tunnel,
Hope anchors the soul!
The light at the end of this path,
Castaway the disguise,
There’s the light right at the end,
Invent and recognize!
There’s a light at the end my friend,
The wars will subside.
The light at the end you see:
An amicable world to survive.
There’s a light right there,
The evils shall perish,
A light at the end,
Victory will be ours to cherish!
So there’s a light at the end my dear,
Rise in valour!
Strive till the end,
Break the tunnel through!
But as I stand at the end of the tunnel,
I see no spark or glint,
Cause the light is eclipsed under the facade lies,
The light had always been within.

Ever wondered what the key to cracking a jigsaw puzzle is? Its getting the right piece at the right time. Life is like a jigsaw puzzle. As we proceed , we find ourselves building up a beautiful picture. For some it doesn’t click cause we fail to get the right piece at the right time.
Its 3.46 AM on the clock. My late night playlist is on shuffle. And me staring blank outside the window. The night sky slowly turns crimson red. Every night i watch the stars disappear slowly into the beaming sun rays. I observe the nights turn into days. I observe the light win over darkness.
I hope you are doing good;
good without me.
I know you wish that
you never ever see me.
I wonder did you ever
Ever love me?
I wonder what it was
When you said, go away, i set you free!
A daughter, a sister, a wife and then a mother! And the loop continues. Its a never ending job, with promotions but with no pay. We women have been doing this for ages. And most importantly, we do it for free.
