Incidence no. 7

I was getting late for work. All hassled up, I go to my dresser. Searching for my comb, I bend down. When I straighten up again, what I see in the mirror is astounding. It is my own reflection, but it seems different somehow. Just as I am trying to figure out the difference, this…

My door slowly opened, in the middle of the night. With silent footsteps she entered and looked at me. Her face was funny, much different than what I remember, Her eyes showed sorrow, her nose was crooked and now she stooped. Walking in sloppily, she laughed. Her hand raised towards me, she said, “I have…

It was winter, I had to pee. 3 am. My bladder was blasting. I had to, had to go. So, I got up. The position of the restroom in my house is such that you could see my grandmother’s bed. Head to toe. And I have a bad habit of looking around. And so I…

It had been just a year in the hostel. I was in my room with two other friends. All asleep. It was winter. The door was shut and the windows were closed. The fan was running at minimalistic speed. My bed was in the middle. I don’t know what time it was, but something surely…

Hostel days are fun, till funny incidences happen. Me, and a friend of mine had rented an apartment during our internship programme. It had been ages since we had watched any horror movies. Scary stuff was not on my mind. My friend was working the night that day. I was in bed, ready to sleep….

Again, it was a mid summer afternoon and I was travelling home from work. I was waiting at the railway station for my train to arrive. There was no one else with me to board the train. I got in my compartment and was looking for a place to sit. t was all empty, so I had…

It was a mid summer afternoon, sunny, I clearly remember. I was sitting in my room, studying, for my exams were nearing. As I prefer studying in natural light, I had opened up the windows. Also, I kept the door open, ventilation was needed. It was a complete dry spell. No wind at all, not a…

The Path

Standing at the crux of my life, I think, Which road should I take? Should I listen to my heart? Should I listen to my brain? Tormenting, these moments, These forked paths, They lead me no where, I stand, stagnant and defeated. Fork

Are they real?

Have you ever wondered why do you dream? What are these dreams? Story from a different lifetime? Future events? Or a mind game? A conscious effort? Or a subconscious picture? It is said that you dream what you think, but many a times we don’t dream what we think. In fact, we dreams of things we…

I don’t want my child to become a doctor

I came across this blog written almost a year ago, I suggest all of you to read it. Here is the link. To the author, Respected Sir, I was sincerely touched by your post. It took me ten years back in time, in 2006, when I was sitting with my parents and making a decision…

Pensive of Karma

Bit by bit, it fills, Deed by deed it fills, Your pensive, Your pensive of Karma. A little tilt here, A little tilt there, It floats, Balancing itself. Weighing positive at times, Weighing negative, mostly, It sways, Your pensive of Karma. You will have to answer, Oh yes you will, If you can’t keep it…

Don’t give up, yet…

I picture myself sitting on my couch with a cup of steaming coffee in my hand. The cup is so hot against my hands but everything else is so cold, so numb. I am looking out of the window, its hazy. All I see a these tiny little drops racing their way down the glass….
