The Journey Begins

“Soan, you write well! Write, we’ll get it published.” This used to be Abhay’s statement whenever I read out something new that I’d written. “But what do I write about? There has to be something, I can’t just start writing and what do I write?” used to be my standard reply. “Write a book on…

Piece on Peace…published!

In 2008, I was the class teacher of 2A, don’t remember whether I used to teach English, Math or EVS but that doesn’t matter. It was the day of Parent Teacher Meeting. As is my habit, I was a quarter of an hour early in the class. Even as I was settling a lady asked…

How I wish wants, feelings, dreams and desires were tangible objects… Would have kept them locked or thrown them away. Maybe broken into little pieces and crushed to powder. And mixed with soil to sow the seeds of happiness and grow trees of satisfaction on the debris of desires.

A Slice of My Past!

I got my house redone and painted in the month of March and most of the redundant things have been gotten rid of. But then, there are things which have nothing more than sentimental value and we tend to keep them for the simple reason that we cannot think of parting with them or throwing…

Stay good, stay happy! Wherever you are…. Waking up to the darkness within where the sun cannot reach. Breathing the same stale air, disappointing and sad. The goodness around, the joys of life fall on a mind that’s dumb. No warmth, no feelings, a sensation so numb; she doesn’t feel even the burden of living.

Windows opened the doors for me!

Windows and I go back a long time, and I have been using it since my marriage in 1999. I started with Windows 97. I would go with my father in law and both of us would learn it together as Abhay had earned some training vouchers. Then we upgraded to Windows2000, then to Windows…

And there’s nothing to write again.

I am truly in awe of the people who can write regularly or challenge themselves to write every day and succeed. It takes a lot of creativity, imagination and dedication to come up with a write-up worth sharing on a regular basis. My last post on the blog was almost a fortnight ago and that…

Yes we need all the people but sometimes you need only that one person, the most special one. There’s so much to say, all thoughts but no words. Wish you were here to know and understand or do you? Deep thoughts, strong feelingsbut no words to say.Wish you were hereto see that look, feel that…

She was ready to disintegrate into particles to merge with him. Yet he had to break her bit by bit.
