My wish?- To be a mother to hundreds!

There was a time when I had wished for not having even one of them. Then there came a point in my life when I realized- “Okay! It wouldn’t be bad to have a few. Say, three or four.” And finally a stage where I couldn’t wait to have hundreds of them to be playing,…

A woman behind the veil

Mahira always used to wear a black, plain veil; even at her workplace. Nobody ever asked her to not to wear it. She was from Kashmir and had recently shifted to Chennai for her work. But she didn’t shift alone; her husband- what he seemed to, at least, people around- did too. Nobody ever saw…

My one-sided love affair!

It was love at first sight, for me. It was one-sided love too, from my end. You don’t happen to believe in something like this, unless you experience it. One-sided love- this never was a concept I didn’t believe in- I knew of its existence and so never wanted to experience it either. But life…

A ‘Perfect’ moment. What is it?

“Every moment is the paradox of now or never.” ― Simon Van Booy The atmosphere of her house was bright in that dark night. Her friends were grooving with the music. She was not looking her best in that skater dress of dull Olive color with flat sandals. It’s not that she didn’t have the…
