100 word fiction: Remembrance

100 word fiction: Remembrance

He stood there looking at their photos in remembrance of the times they spent together. While she was a scalawag of some sort, their friendship hit it off.

Though they did have their fights and arguments where she ended up with a moue of disdain, they laughed it off together at the end of the day.

Whether it was the fall season or Christmas, they had always spent a lot of time with each other during festive occasions.

But once she was married, their conversations reduced drastically so much so that he was left wondering on the way life changed.

White Sands

White Sands

The white sands were a magnet for tourists,

while activities like paragliding and scuba diving were fun, hardihood was key

They loved lazing on the beach

and getting scuttlebutt from friends,

When they were bored

they acted as if all the information was recondite

Friends unfriended

Friends unfriended

A team of two dancers, a team of two friends,

they always hung out together

But punishment was an echo of her feelings,

when her friend’s actions were too much to not bother

Forgiveness meant being cordial and working in tandem

in the interim both of which weren’t acceptable to her,

And so with time, the wedge between them got wider

and wider and finally their relationship was wiped clean

Misanthrope

Misanthrope

He always loved seeing the stars from his telescope. While the others would ramble around him about anything and everything under the sun, he would zone out and think about ways to reach the stars. For him it was never about the money or the fame.

All he wanted was to be happy. There were times when he was put in a spot as people around him started calling him a misanthrope. But he didn’t bother one bit and used to mention that if it were him, he would spend few years of his life meditating in an antre.

Window

Window

As I look outside,

I see the beautiful

colours of sunset

 

As I look outside,

I see the empty roads caused

by the pandemic

 

As I look outside,

I don’t see known faces of

friends and family

 

As I look outside,

I keep wondering on when

will life be normal

Birthday

Birthday

Over the years, I have always been lucky to spend my birthday with people I care about. While I was never interested to celebrate birthdays with too many people, I remember the ones during school days when my parents used to invite a few of my good friends home. After cutting the cake and the exchange of gifts we used to have a nice meal at the restaurant of my choice. Surely not too fancy but an evening well spent nonetheless.

Birthdays with friends and

family are the ones which

are cherished always

The redolence of fresh air greeted him as

he finally stepped out and felt that he could breathe easy post

the suffering he went through and was thankful

to the simpatico relationship with friends and family.

Book Review – Just US Things

Book Review - Just US Things

I had read a few of Sushmita’s blog posts on her experiences about life in the US. What I liked was the sincerity in the way she narrated her thoughts. And so I was quite curious to download and check out her book from the Blogchatter Library.

The blurb goes like this

Irrespective of the countries, when you immigrate, you expect a cultural shock. Indian millennials are very well adapted to the American culture, thanks to television. But is that enough? Every day is different – even when you have travelled the world and have enjoyed every land and its culture. This book talks about the daily struggles and the existential battle of a new Indian immigrant in the US.

The title and the cover which has an outline of Statue of Liberty and other skyscrapers is quite interesting. Though I felt that rather than a white background, maybe some more colour could have been added.

100 word fiction: Xenization #AtoZChallenge

100 word fiction: Xenization

Though he was literally on the top of Africa, he felt a certain sense of loneliness seeing the vast tracts of emptiness all around.

He loved exploring the world and had visited more than 120 countries. While he did encounter many strangers on such trips who eventually became friends, he had started to feel the need for a travel companion.

And now as he sat on Mount Kilimanjaro, he couldn’t help but wonder how different life would have been if he had instead taken up the software job he rejected in favour of this one. Had he made the right decision?

55 word fiction: Usual

It had been months since he had visited his family. The world got locked down as things got worse. Hundreds were dying and thousands were losing their jobs each day. Months later when some of the travel restrictions were lifted and he could take off for his hometown, he finally started to feel ‘normal’ again.
