Coping with a crisis

Coping with a crisis

If possible,

we would emerge out of this pandemic by switching it off,

If possible,

we would fume less and smile more as the pandemic taught us that life is short,

Maybe this is just an aberration

for learning to cope with a crisis.

Din of screaming voices

Din of screaming voices

The day was a disappointing experience. It all began downhill from the time he moved into the new place. While he knew that shifting to a new city was going to be tough, he had made peace with the fact that this would help him rise higher in his career based on how capable he was.

But his new neighbours didn’t make things any easier. They always seemed hysterical. From yelling at their house help to fighting with each other, it was a din of screaming voices.

He found that there is nothing behind the wall except a space where the wind whistles. And so he decided to ensure that the doors and windows are made soundproof. Once done, he was able to live a much calmer life free from the stream of noise he was forced to handle day in and day out.

Wooden spoon

Wooden spoon

He may have meant it as a joke but she felt that other teams ominous performances were an augury of the danger that lay ahead. She felt that a wooden spoon was all she would be left with.

100 word fiction: Edge of Universe

Edge of Universe

There’s a planet at the edge of the universe not unlike the earth in landscape and atmosphere. But its inhabitants are not.

They are robots who have been programmed to act and respond as per certain scenarios. While they are also programmed to emote like humans, their emotions seem anything but natural. Over the years, the amount of goods consumed on this planet has increased ten times.

There is speculation that the merchandise there is carried across the vast swath of their planet by planes just like on Earth. People remember to label it correctly so that its not lost.

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.

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.
