Deserted at the altar

“I guess this is it. We were meant to be together only till this point.”

“Are you out of your mind? All the preparations are done. Everything is finalized. The marriage takes place in 2 hours. And now you say that its over?”

“Yes, you heard it right. There’s someone else in my life.” And saying this, she walked away with tears in her eyes even before he could ask the questions swirling in his head.

Despite their numerous attempts, her parents hadn’t agreed to their relationship. And she feared that if they got together, their lives would be at stake.

7 people I am thankful for..

There are so many individuals or groups of them who make a difference in our lives in various ways. While we genuinely feel for some of them, there are many others who we detest and would never like to meet again.

Moreover, it’s not necessary that you have to meet people for them to make a difference in your lives. I see that your surprised. So let’s quickly get down to penning the list.

Family: 

We are what we are because of our family. They are the ones who bring us up, teach us the values of good and bad, bear our tantrums and help in moulding us into good human beings.

100 word fiction – Storm clouds..

The storm clouds moving in...

The storm clouds moving in…

PHOTO PROMPT © Lucy Fridkin

“The rain is starting to get heavier as we speak. It’s better we head back as soon as possible lest we get stuck in the storm. The clouds seem to be coming in quicker than we had imagined.”

Rennie always loved to take his Cessna every weekend for a joy ride over the coast. The views of the evening skyline from the cockpit were astonishing.

Though there was the danger of the storm approaching, his son also wanted to experience the city from up above the clouds. But as soon as they took off, they ran into some turbulent weather.

Skywatch Friday – Muscat International Airport

Another day about to come to a close in Muscat

Another day about to come to a close in Muscat

It was refreshing to see those clear skies with the barren hills in the background. Having lived in Muscat for about 17 years, it was a delight to be back even if it was just for a few hours.

In conversation with Ram Sivasankaran – Author of The Peshwa

It's always great to see your work in print isn't it?

Ram Sivasankaran was born in Madras, India, but has spent most of his life abroad largely in the Middle East and the United States of America. He was brought up with stories from Hindu legend and the great epics and classics of both India and the West. In addition to being a passionate student of history in school, Ram built keen interest in stories of valor, heroism, chivalry, beauty and romance.

A day-dreamer of sorts, Ram believes deeply in the power of imagination – the mind being the canvas on which even the seemingly talent-less can create new universes, resurrect eras long gone, bring the gods to life and even resurrect heroes and damsels of yore. As such, Ram makes his debut with a historical novel on one of the greatest and yet, to an extent, less-known warrior from Indian history – Bajirao Bhat, Peshwa of the Maratha Confederacy.

He joins us for a quick tete-a-tete.

Aseem: When did you first feel that you had it in you to become an author?

Ram: I have always written tiny blog posts across many topics such as politics, religion and ancient science and received decent feedback among close friend and family circles. Many have encouraged me to write in a form that ups the scale of both words communicated and audience reached so I decided to give professional writing a try.

The earliest though when I fell in love with writing and recognized any innate ability to do so was in third grade, when my teacher appreciated me for a little story of Winnie the Pooh I had written in the form of a couple of paragraphs.

When it came to eating out, food wasn’t her most important criterion. She made sure to choose the restaurant which offered the best ambience.

And so, when it came to her birthday, her friends thought of nothing but the best. The view from the restaurant down to the valley below was majestic. It felt as though the clouds had come down. The lighting was just right and the tables had been separated far apart so as to give everyone their space.

This was the perfect atmosphere to have a nice meal amidst the clinking of glasses of wine and cutlery.

A tough day at work

A tough day at work

We all have seen tough days at work. They happen every now and then. Sometimes it is the presentation you worked very hard on that gets rejected or learning that you are not getting the promotion that was promised. Tough days simply can’t be avoided. While it is not always in our hands to stop a day from turning bad at work, it is totally in our control to sail through the day without letting it hamper our daily work and productivity. Though it is difficult to keep our motivation levels high on tough days, putting a little bit of effort to stay positive can really do wonders for you even when everything seems to be going against you.

Here are a few ways in which you can convince yourself to work through tough days even if you have run out of motivation:

Movie Review – Dear Zindagi

Dear Zindagi

Dear Zindagi

Starring Alia Bhatt, Shahrukh Khan, Kunal Kapoor, Ali Zafar and Angad Bedi, Dear Zindagi is Gauri Shinde’s second directorial venture after the Sridevi starrer – English Vinglish. Her first flick had an excellent story and some fantastic acting by Sridevi. It was a movie that had soul and appealed strongly to the heart. Does this one work the same way?

The story goes like this –

Kaira (Alia Bhatt) is a cinematographer who is trying to work her way towards directing a feature film. She seems like a determined and career oriented woman who is doing all it takes to succeed starting from ads and short films. But as life goes on, she meets a lot of different men like Angad Bedi, Kunal Kapoor, Ali Zafar and Aditya Roy Kapur each of whom make a mark in her life in a different way. 

A chance encounter with Dr Jehangir Khan (Shahrukh Khan) turns her life upside down. She starts seeing life from a different lens. The rest of the story deals with what all she does to get her meandering life back on track.
