100 word fiction: Lovestruck

100 word fiction: Lovestruck

I want to forget those days but I can’t seem to get over her. It seems that she is still here with me walking hand in hand by the beach.

We happened to meet by chance in a restaurant where she had come for a business meeting. When we got talking, we realized that we had so much in common and a friendship quickly bloomed. Soon enough, we were besotted with each other so much so that I had surrendered myself to her charms.

But when she suddenly passed away, I was only left with our photographs and my loneliness.

Microblog Mondays: 2020 – The decade of hope?

2020 - A decade of hope
Every year we all proclaim our New Year resolutions only to break them after a couple of days or weeks. But as the new decade begins, can we hope for the world to be a better place than before?

Could this be the decade of peaceful coexistence?

Could this be the decade when we start reversing the effects of global warming?

Could this be the decade when we forget our differences and work together for the greater good of humanity?

100 word fiction: Her specs

Her specs

“I feel as though I have got a new life with these specs post my surgery. There was a time when I struggled to open my eyes under normal light. My eyes watered excessively due to the dryness in the atmosphere.”

Despite having a caring family and achieving a lot in her career, Sarah seemed perennially unhappy. Her eye condition had deteriorated so much so that it had started affecting her daily life.

The ophthalmologist suggested that an urgent surgery was the only option followed by getting the right kind of specs. And the rest as they say is history.

The obsession over 10,000 steps

The Obsession over 10,000 steps

With the advent of smartwatches, the obsession over the ‘no of steps’ one has completed in a day has hit the roof. More and more people are looking to the “Fitbit’s” and the “iWatch’s” in the hope of ensuring they reach the magic ‘10,000’ step mark. It seems as though fitness and having an active lifestyle is now being defined by the number of steps one completes in a day.

Devices like these have definitely ensured that fitness has probably become more mainstream than it ever was. What started from pedometers has moved on to smart devices, apps and even competitions for fitness. All of it has further emphasized that a good fitness regimen is the secret of a happy life.

Thursday Tree Love – Greenery at the Königsallee

Greenery at the Königsallee

Königsallee in Dusseldorf with its extensive list of fashion stores and retail chains is one of the most upscale districts in Europe. It has a canal running through its center with a lot many trees on either side.

This pic was taken in the Summer of 2018 when the drought in Europe was still at its peak. So you can imagine even after that, how green this place looks.

Microblog Mondays: Global Warming

Global Warming

It’s the same story every year and things seem to be just getting worse as the years pass by. Flooding in India, Nepal and Bangladesh have killed more than a 1000 people already in 2017. With rainfall of 300mm on 29th August 2017, Mumbai, India’s financial capital had its wettest August day in 2 decades. With a recovery cost of more than $ 180bn, Hurricane Harvey is expected to surpass Hurricane Katrina as the worst storm on record in United States.

The carbon dioxide levels are at an all time high. The global sea temperatures are breaking records like never before thus creating even stronger storm events. The extent of ice in Antartica is lower than it has ever been. There have been record heatwaves across Europe and US leading to multiple wildfires.
