Store Full of Stories: Our Silent Conversations

Mornings have never disappointed me. Usually it’s only me sitting or strolling around. However the past few days, Shobha has been coming for a stroll with me as well. Always carrying this piece of paper, she plucks jasmine flowers, wanders around the garden seeking for any other flowers to offer the gods and before she returns to her room we exchange smiles. She hardly interacts with others....

In Conversation with Zindagi
In Conversation with Zindagi

Writer’s note: "In Conversation with Zindagi" is a tribute to the theme of Dear Zindagi”. This movie made me realize how ungrateful I have been all this while and not seen the truest beauty of life.

"She has gone. She really has gone. I checked everywhere; the hospital, the church, everywhere. I called every single colleague she ever had. All of her friends and our family friends, but none of them know about her whereabouts. What am I supposed to do? She is gone, but I'm the one lost. How do I console the kids?

The most flattering would perhaps be, answering a question in the most eloquent way; and the teacher would pass the glance of being impressed, that you couldn't admire yourself any more than that as you would....

The Story of a Book
The Story of a Book

As a bibliophile, I support the claim that a kindle could never give the same feel that a book can. For a topic to write on, I admit that it was not the most original or creative topic, the debate on it has been going on since forever. I did a little research and came across a lot of articles stating the same thing. There was this great article which covered almost all aspects behind this discussion but it missed one. The emotional aspect....

While the other passengers turned their attention to the crying child, he directed his anger towards the poor vendor. “Can’t you see properly?”, he said angrily while he cursed the services of Saurashtra Superfast. “But, Saheb…” “It wasn't his fault, he was busy pouring tea in a moving train. He couldn’t have seen the child coming.”, she said while trying to clean her kurti with a tissue paper....

“No, no, no…on the contrary, I was boring you. The book was at such a critical juncture that I couldn’t resist it. And also, who wants to go and sit with an old hag?” This time he liked and enjoyed every bit of her ‘No, no, no’. He couldn’t stop himself from smiling. This journey in Saurashtra Superfast was pleasing him beyond his expectations....

When the Saurashtra Superfast arrived on the platform, dragging his suitcase and rucksack—which had testimonies of his mom’s affections—he reached his RAC seat. He swiftly placed his luggage beneath the berth so as to occupy the maximum space and then waited for the other person who was going to share the seat with him. ...
