Weaving thoughts into words

Dread: My first solo e-book of short stories

I have always been very observant about whatever happens around us. A lot of my short stories and other forms of micro fiction over the years have always been based on what I have seen and what I feel may happen. The ability of humans to survive all odds and come up trumps is what keeps me going.

Each of the five stories in this e-book is based on my thoughts and experiences of the way humans survive in difficult situations.

There are so many of us who work late at night, don’t we? Haven’t we ever felt nervous on what could happen? A safari sounds like an experience of a lifetime. But what if things go awry? If you are on the way home and suddenly run into a tragedy happening around you, how would you react? Do you just run away? We all wait for that perfect holiday with our family. But what if the perfect holiday turns into a perfect nightmare?

Birthday

Birthday

Over the years, I have always been lucky to spend my birthday with people I care about. While I was never interested to celebrate birthdays with too many people, I remember the ones during school days when my parents used to invite a few of my good friends home. After cutting the cake and the exchange of gifts we used to have a nice meal at the restaurant of my choice. Surely not too fancy but an evening well spent nonetheless.

Birthdays with friends and

family are the ones which

are cherished always

If only

If only

He had forever been on the fringes of selection but could never quite capture the imagination of the selectors to make it to the team. With each passing day, his patience was wearing thin as he wasn’t able to bring in the energy to soldier on till he finally got selected.

His friends wrapped their arms around him and told to keep the faith and never be verecund. But he felt lost and could feel himself being crushed under the weight of expectations from his family and friends. If something wasn’t done soon enough, he knew that his skills would become evanescent.

As he lay underneath the stars and the hours ticked by one by one, he could hear a voice say something softly in his head. This was more than enough to obfuscate his thinking. But he couldn’t think beyond what that voice had said.

And so as it began to rain the next morning, by the end of it he had committed a felony. While he did think that he could escape, the law caught up with him quite quickly. For someone who came with dreams in his eyes to the city, this was a dramatic fall from grace. If only, he could have waited for a some more time.

100 word fiction: Glass painting

100 word fiction: Glass painting

She always wanted to design the interiors of her house. And so she made sure that she got all the right furniture, showpieces and more. Playing with different colours came to her quite naturally and she wanted to give the house a bright outlook.

Once she was done, she began thinking about the windows. While glass painting had been a hobby, she hadn’t done it in more than a decade. But her husband encouraged her saying that there was no better time to revisit it again.

And so she got to work. Within days, her labour of love was ready.

I have always been a big fan of eating different kinds of fruits. And I guess over the past few years I have been incorporating even more fruits than ever before as and when I come across them.

Honcho

Honcho

Lush melodies drew her to the door of the lounge, the friendly smiles enticed her inside. The people were smoking shisha and chit-chatting while the melodies filled the air. She was happy to see this after ages especially considering the fact that everyone had been working from home for almost half of the year.

That morning a funny thing happened on the way to the kitchen when she realized that she had forgotten her shoes in the laundry thus causing her clothes to get dirty. Being the head honcho of a multi-million dollar organization, she always carried himself with pizzazz wherever she went but not this time.

She had arrived as an analyst but with time she had grown professionally and would eventually depart as the leader of an excellent team of individuals. It was if she had transformed the life of her employees and brought them from darkness into light.

While she was a workaholic during the day, she ensured that she let her down in the evening with friends and some music to go along.

Photography: Relaxation

We all have our favourite places where we feel that sense of relaxation and peace which we long for especially to escape our busy day-to-day lives.

Photography: Relaxation

Don’t we always long to escape from all the pollution and excessive traffic?

Photography: Relaxation

Don’t we dream of breathing fresh air and getting a chance to introspect especially in a quiet surrounding?

Photography: Relaxation

Don’t we dream of the days when we don’t have to actually breathe carbon monoxide and all the other noxious gases out there?

Peristeronic

Peristeronic

More than anything, he was definitely peristeronic. His ability to multi-task and the speed at which he accomplished tasks meant that he could easily navigate his way through any maze without breaking a sweat. Over time, he had grown into a very precious resource and his superiors ensured that he was frequently exalted.

Seasons of the year

Seasons of the year

The summer consisted

of hot and humid days which

were full of torture

 

Winter was harsh as

the cold penetrated the skin

with scary effects

 

Spring and autumn came

and went by without any kind

of noise whatsoever

Sunrise

Sunrise

Being the intrepid

person she was, she made sure

to climb to the top.

The sunrise there was

breathtaking and had in it

to mesmerize all.

He had this dogma

that watching the sunrise would

be good for his happiness.
