Event of the Year

Event of the Year

It was an Annual Event but was it to celebrate over, he wasn’t sure.  In the beginning of the year, a lot of promises had been made which eventually turned out to be false. The employees had been taken for a ride to the extent that most believed that they would be rewarded and this had helped build sublime confidence in the team. But that wasn’t to be.

The peccadillos started piling up for the team month after month as the frustration began billowing up all around. The top two performers started to hammer tornillos into the wall to get rid of their anger. Finally they just walked out and ended up taking the willow medicine and using the pillow for a good night’s rest.

I’m taking my blog to the next level with Blogchatter’s My Friend Alexa

100 word fiction: Pandemic fatigue

100 word fiction: Pandemic fatigue

As the days kept passing by and the seasons kept changing, they started to feel that the juice they had in the society had no value. Everyone irrespective of their social status was equally at the mercy of the virus. While initially, they were very eager to know more about the pandemic, fatigue started to set in over time making them incurious.

They were tired of all the negativity. But despite this, though there were days when it was bright and sunny outside, they didn’t deem it fit to enjoy themselves when everyone around was struggling to make ends meet.

Moonlight

Moonlight

It came as no surprise to anyone when she entered the shop and found it inhabited by fluffy cuddly creatures. She had always seen a lot of people bringing their pets or kids coming to the shop to play with them time and time again. In presence of these creatures, the kids seemed full of verve. On full moon nights, the shop used to organize pet friendly events for people to play and bond with these creatures. Their aim was to move thoughts of animal lovers away from the froth in the name of animal protection by other groups. Though the shop’s owner knew that his shop was in imminent danger from these groups, it didn’t stop him one bit. He was more than happy working in the shadows of others to do his bit in taking care of these creatures.

Summer was at its

peak though without power, he

slept beneath the moon

He made them proud..

He made them proud..

He had only seen poverty. While his father was a daily wage labourer, his mother worked from house to house washing dishes. But despite their struggles, they tried to ensure that they could educate him so that he had a better life. They always felt that – In their dreams they sleep with the moon.

As luck would have it, their son got a scholarship. Post his education, within the first year of joining an MNC, he made sure that his parents were out of the misery they had lived in. He had made them proud after all. While others did a lot of yada, yada, yada about taking care of parents, he made sure he actually did.

When he was a child he couldn’t ever dream of having a debit card. But now he was making sure that anyone could access the banking system.

Dine-in in the post pandemic world

Dine-in in a post pandemic world

I had the oddest feeling of fear as I entered the restaurant for the first time after the pandemic struck. It had been months since dine-in had been shut and now when things were starting back again, it just felt weird to start all over. While I didn’t have to really encounter anyone as the place was mostly unoccupied, I did irritate everyone around me with one of my idiosyncrasies which was to ask as many questions as possible about how clean things were.

Bibliophile

Bibliophile

Untouched books crowded his shelves, shiny leather spines and faded first editions, meticulously dusted and never read.

Or so it seemed. All his life, he had been immersed in books as far as he could remember. He felt that with every book he read, he made a new discovery of something so important that it could change the world.

Over the years, he felt that he had covered so much of what one could learn in their lifetime just by reading books. He kept these books as neatly as one could have imagined. If anyone picked them up, they wouldn’t have realized that the books were actually read even once.

Grocery shopping during a pandemic

Grocery shopping during a pandemic

The strangest thing happened as I went into the supermarket. I saw a customer who was very curt with the staff about not wearing a mask despite the strict rules. While he did nod indicating that he understood what the staff was telling him, he still went on in and began to carve his way through the store one step at a time. He also made a faint attempt at a laugh apparently mocking the staff.

Meanwhile, what started out as thunder had given way to a downpour so much so that the city seemed underwater and whirlpools were forming up as well. Almost on cue, things started getting heated up inside as well. Despite the fact that the customer was well built with a broad chest to boot, the staff didn’t waste any time in telling him to leave the store until he followed the health guidelines.

The customer protested saying it was his sovereign right to do what he felt. But the supermarket wasn’t about to sway from the defined rules which would affect their credibility. The staff didn’t have any inanition in following the defined rules. They had kept cherry blossoms around their store as a symbol of hope and they weren’t about to let a random customer spoil it all.

100 word fiction: Inevitable

100 word fiction: Inevitable

As the number of coronavirus cases and deaths passed one grim milestone after another, he felt that God had only been delaying the inevitable as far as his and his family’s health was concerned.

While he always adhered to all the regulations as specified by the health authorities, he also knew that life couldn’t be locked down forever. Humans are social animals after all.

Even after things opened up, he avoided the busy areas like restaurants, theaters and malls. But he did eventually go to open spaces like parks and beaches to get his moiety of happiness and fresh air.

Lockdown

Lockdown

As the lockdown began, they ideated and designed a project to aid the needy. While being unsure of its efficacy, they knew that just a cheque for the poor wouldn’t work. Instead, a more nuanced approach was needed.
