The sound of the earth shaking was still vivid in his memory. He only had seconds to react and take his family along with himself out to safety. The 6.5 magnitude temblor at 2:57am had jolted the entire city out from it’s slumber.

The continuous aftershocks in the next few days ensured that almost everyone was forced to sleep under the open sky.

On returning back after a couple of weeks, he burst into tears seeing his once beautiful house.

“I spent my entire life’s earning to build this abode only for it to be destroyed by an act of God!”

How to deal with criticism?

We all face criticism at various stages in our lives. Whether at home, at work, at school or anywhere outside, positive or negative criticism is part and parcel of our daily lives. But then, how does one deal with it?

What’s most important is to hear the person out. He or she may actually be saying things without any proof or example whatsoever. But one shouldn’t get angry without even listening to the person completely. Getting angry can only lead to further negative criticism.

“It’s difficult to even imagine the gamut of emotions she must be going through.”

Linda was on the way to meet her parents when her plane plunged towards the ocean at a rate of knots. She distinctly remembered the screams and cries for help ringing out and about the cabin only to black out when things unravelled.

While she was thankful to be alive, she was reminded of the screams and cries of the others every night. She always wondered what God had in mind for her for keeping her alive amidst such a horrific tragedy.

What brings a tear to our eyes?

Tears

Tears

Tears are secretions from the lacrimal glands in the eye. They are generated due to a variety of mental or physical issues which may or may not be controllable by the individuals themselves.

From a mental standpoint, we cry either when we are distressed about something or our happiness knows no bounds. Loosing your girlfriend, getting your dream job, failing in the exam, losing an important deal, meeting your parents after many years and so on and so forth are the kind of situations which we all go through day in and day out.

“You were the first person I had trusted in my life. I will never forgive you for the way you have stabbed me in my back.”

Rohan, a serial killer, had been on the run for many years. It was during this period that he came across Esha, a senior criminal lawyer who became his close confidant and he was sure that she could help him fight his case in court.

He had always felt that the authorities had wrongly framed him. But Esha soon realized the games he was playing and handed him over in the nick of time.

Does moral policing actually work?

These days, everyone wants to control the content we watch, the things we do, the sweet nothings we talk to our partners, the food we eat and so on and so forth. It seems as though every individual is trying to act like the moral guardian who aims to protect society from all the evils. But does this really work?

We keep reading about things being banned left right and center. There’s one school of thought which says that banning something ensures that people don’t get exposed to the wrong things in life. But the other school of thought asks “Who decides what is wrong or right?” Shouldn’t it be an individual’s perspective to decide on what is right and what is wrong? Banning instead may have the opposite affect.

Love is an emotion which makes us do a variety of things which we may not always do. From surprising them with gifts to taking them out to an expensive restaurant; from doing things that evoke nostalgic memories of the times gone by to just giving them a call to express how much they are missed and loved, all of us do all this and more to keep our loved ones happy and smiling.

“You don’t know the feeling of writing letters to the person you love. There are emotions interspersed in every word.”

In the age of social media, she was almost an exception with her love for penning down letters. Over the last few months, she had written a letter every day and kept it in an envelope to give it to him.

But there was always that unseen fear which held her back from mailing them across.

Five Sentence Fiction – Bidding Goodbye

She had always heard that meeting and bidding goodbye to anyone was part and parcel of life. But she could have never imagined that she would have to bid goodbye to the person she loved the most in this world.

Though she knew that they would meet again sooner rather than later, the fact that there was no precise date or month on the horizon was what made her feel really uneasy.

“Why do you have to leave me and go all the time?”

As they hugged and parted, tears rolled down her eyes while he looked the other way to keep a check on his emotions.
