One day…

Things appear to be falling in place for me as of now. I have a job that I’ll be joining soon, the first step to the fulfilment of pretty much all my responsibilities towards my family.

The house looks completely dark from outside. They’ve all probably slept. It is quite late into the night. Aditi, he thinks, would’ve dozed off in the hall itself, waiting for him. He needs to be careful. He hasn’t eaten a single ounce of food since morning; only coffee has been serving his purpose. Anyway, he... Continue Reading →

No Abnormal Stuff

I've spent the last few months of my life looking at all the negatives it has offered and can have in store for me. I've been frustrated, confused, befuddled, angry, complaining, disgusted, exasperated and finally gained nothing out of all this. No wait, there's one thing that all this has made me realize, and that's... Continue Reading →
