100 word fiction: The experiment

The experiment

PHOTO PROMPT © Rochelle Wisoff-Fields

“God knows what do you do sitting in that bloody stone house all day long. I am tired of you not having any time for us.”

“Whatever I am doing is only to see you guys happy.”

“Oh really? So why don’t you tell me? Why are you so secretive?”

“I have told you numerous times that you will get to know when you have to. Why do you keep nagging me all the time.”

And she walked off in a huff. Little did Karen know that Rick was planning an experiment that was going to change their lives forever.

TheBlindList - A blind date with the world

Who doesn’t love the unknown? Who doesn’t love the mystery of travelling and exploring a new place? Who doesn’t love the delight in meeting people from different and trying out a variety of cuisines? What if I tell you, that you are going on a blind date with the world to some far off place which may or may not be in your bucket list, how would you react? Nervous? Scared? Apprehensive? Excited?

If someone were to take me to a place I haven’t even researched one bit, I would initially be nervous for sure wondering where am I going. But once I reach there, it would be a delight to explore by going with the flow. For many of us, its important to research all the hotspots of any location before we visit. It ensures that there are no surprises. But for others like me, while some research is fine, I like to keep my agenda fairly open. I feel that it’s important to get in the mood to see the sights and sounds. In my view if one just sticks to a specific planned itinerary, then the real fun of a trip is lost. It feels more like a course which needs to get done with rather than a trip to explore the unknown.

Why is sexual harassment an important issue?

Sexual Harassment

Since the last couple of years, the #MeToo movement has been gaining momentum across the planet. Tarana Burke, an African American women activist had coined the term when she failed to respond and comfort a 13 yr old sexual assault victim. Tarana hoped that she could have just said “MeToo” when the victim confided in her.

While it’s taken a long time coming, the movement has finally reached India and exploded at breakneck speed through Twitter and other social media platforms. It seems as though everyone has some or the other skeleton in their closet which seems to be tumbling out day by day. Obviously this has given rise to the fact that there could be fake allegations amidst the real victims as well.
