Dread: My first solo e-book of short stories

I have always been very observant about whatever happens around us. A lot of my short stories and other forms of micro fiction over the years have always been based on what I have seen and what I feel may happen. The ability of humans to survive all odds and come up trumps is what keeps me going.

Each of the five stories in this e-book is based on my thoughts and experiences of the way humans survive in difficult situations.

There are so many of us who work late at night, don’t we? Haven’t we ever felt nervous on what could happen? A safari sounds like an experience of a lifetime. But what if things go awry? If you are on the way home and suddenly run into a tragedy happening around you, how would you react? Do you just run away? We all wait for that perfect holiday with our family. But what if the perfect holiday turns into a perfect nightmare?

100 word fiction: The locked room..

The purple door

PHOTO PROMPT © CEayr

The room had been locked for years. Rachel had heard stories about her aunt’s ghost lurking behind those doors. This aunt had failed in love and out of despair, she committed suicide.

Rachel didn’t believe all this until one evening when she heard footsteps from the room. They got louder and louder and finally someone began banging the door from inside amidst cries for help. Even before she could react, the door was thrown open.

Almost immediately, Rachel got up sweating profusely. It was 3am and she looked out only to see the room locked as before. Was she dreaming?

Guest Post: A visit to the Bhangarh Fort

Bhangarh Fort

Bhangarh Fort

My whole body has been shaking for an hour now. It’s as if all my body parts have been jumbled up aching every bit every inch. My car can’t find a patch to smooth the tyres and give my bones some relaxation. Before making the trip to Bhangarh Fort, I googled about the place and read about the spooky stories related to the fort paying little attention to one of the comments that gave the exact picture of the journey as I had experienced.

My sudden holidays had forced me to make a short trip to the Sariska Tiger Reserve. But the main attraction of the trip was to visit the horror fort that I had read about so many times.

The D-Day had finally come and I started for the fort early in the morning. Due to the crowded roads, I reached my destination at around 11am. It is not allowed to enter the fort past 5pm as it is said that at night there are ghosts flying all around.

“There is always the fear of the unknown. We are all wary of taking risks lest we fail and fall down by the wayside. But a life without challenges isn’t really a life worth living.

While success is always welcome, only when you fall do you truly realize what it takes to rise and shine all the way.”

Rakesh had failed to clear a number of job interviews in succession due to one reason or another. And when he finally did, the first thing which came to his mind was his father’s words which had shaped his approach in life.

He always made it a point to switch on the lights before stepping out of his room to go to the washroom in the middle of the night. He had a queer feeling that a pair of eyes was watching over him.

“I just want you to know that I love you.” And he held her hand tight as they knew that they were in this together.

It had only been 25 minutes since they had taken off for a trip of a lifetime to the beaches of Krabi when things started to go wrong.

What started as mild turbulence turned into a full blown emergency as the aircraft suddenly banked right and started descending rapidly causing mayhem all around with passengers who weren’t strapped up, food in the plates and even luggage all being thrown around as cries for help flooded the cabin.

Just when most thought that it was all about to end, things became normal as suddenly as they had started.

Microblog Mondays: The spirit of Neerja Bhanot

I can’t really get over the experience of watching the Bollywood flick – ‘Neerja‘. It’s the story of Neerja Bhanot, a 22 year old senior flight purser who died but not until she had saved more than 340 lives when 4 terrorists hijacked Pan Am Flight 73 in Karachi way back in 1986.

Though she was young, she taught all of us so much about humanity and love that even the oldies could have learnt a lesson or two. The courage and thinking which she displayed in the time of despair was unmatched.

Rather than differentiating passengers based on their caste, creed, religion, region, gender and so on, she went all out to save each and everyone. It was as though even fear got scared looking her in the eye. She could have been the first one to escape but instead chose to stay on until every passenger had been evacuated safely.

While she was awarded by India, Pakistan and USA, her legacy lives on with the Neerja Bhanot Award which is given to a woman who has fought injustice in society with determination.

Do your choices reflect your hopes or fears?

Do your choices reflect your hopes or fears?

At every step in life, we have to make choices. Choices for our career, choices for the one we want to marry, choices like going out or not, choices on the movie we want to watch or the food we want to eat and the likes. Some of these choices need to be made everyday while others are those that need to be made over a period of time.

Many individuals make their choices based on fear. The fear of the unknown, the fear of not succeeding, the fear of not being accepted, the fear of being ridiculed and so on and so forth.
