I can hear a voice. Calling out to me from a distance. The voice seems familiar. I recognize it. The unbridled passion. The unadulterated happiness. The absolute contentment. The distance. That is something I cannot judge. It seems easy to reach out to. But nearly impossible to cross that distance. A few years probably. A … More The Lost Voice
There have been a million times I have felt guilty for letting this blog stay dormant, for the pages to stay barren, for my thoughts – yearning for a chance to be penned down- die a slow, painful, silent death. What’s my excuse to be away from the one thing that truly drives me? Busyness. … More Earth, calling Lucille!
I’d just clocked in 30 working hours, back to back. Working overnight to meet another impossible Friday deadline. Advertising. That’s all I needed to say, and that sympathetic look would come my way, where people wonder what kind of a lunatic I am to indulge in self-torture of this kind. (I mean, aren’t there other … More A different time!
I didn’t think there was any truth in the belief that ‘a girl and a guy can never be JUST friends’. We were inseparable. We always had something to talk about. The incessant chatter, the never ending gossip sessions… that zoned out the entire group. Only we understood each other jokes, completed each other’s sentences. … More BF: do we have to pick between best friend or boyfriend?
It was Sunday. He wanted to cook his favourite Chicken Lonvas (an East Indian preparation). There, in the sweltering heat, he stood shirtless in his favourite nylon shorts, sweat trickling down his huge belly. Crushed garlic turning brown, onions turning translucent. His senses were indulging in the sights and scents of his culinary skills, it … More An ounce of innocence!
Your soft kisses left a delicate trail against my skin, and my mind. When I brush my hand against those spots, I can vividly relive those tender moments. Especially that balmy afternoon, that showed me a side of you I’ll never forget! I loved the way you looked at my neck longingly, like as if … More A kiss to build a dream on!
I love Secret Santa. And when Vinita Bahl announced a blogger version of this popular Christmas game, I was even more excited. But yes, my only regret is that I could not send in my entry before Christmas, and I deeply apologize for not keeping up with the rest of the group. (I am the … More Secret Blog Review for Janaki Nagaraj
Blood is not thicker than water. She was not related to us, but she related to everything connected with our lives. She was not a family member, thrust upon us by default. She was someone my dad worked with, and someone we chose to get close to. She was much more than a family friend, … More Goodbye & Hello
This post has been selected as a Blogadda WOW post (Dated 15th September). The waves were lashing against the wall they were seated on. The sun had just set, and the dusky amber sky created the perfect backdrop for a romantic evening. She was twiddling her fingers, nervously playing with the diamond ring he’d gotten … More The hues of romance…
She began working at the age of 17. She is turning 30 this year. And this journey of 13 years has defined her in ways that even she did not imagine.

So this post is looooooooooooooooong overdue… in fact, blogwatig bestowed the honour of the Liebster Award on me exactly a year ago (23rd August, 2012 to be precise). And I have been such a lazy ass. It has taken me about 3 blogger meets, and over a 30 posts to get to this one. And I’m glad … More L for Liebster, L for Lucille, L for Love!
At the stroke of midnight, Esha woke up to strange noises. They were strained voices, singing happy birthday. She leaned over to her side table, checked the clock. It showed 12.00 am. 13th August. With quivering hands, she turned on the table lamp. 13th August. It was definitely not her birthday today. Nor anyone else … More Midnight Wishes
I’ve known quite a few relationships that resemble this one. Some people come into your life to become a part of it, others remain in them as memories. But whatever it may be, each of them bring along a lesson, a learning, acting out their part in the grandest stage act ever witnessed – LIFE! … More The Pencil & the Eraser!
“The ideal conditions that you are looking for don’t exist. We shall never be able to get rid of certain defects. The trick is to know that despite all your flaws you are an extraordinary person!

A boy was watching his grandmother write a letter. At one point he asked: ‘Are you writing a story about what we’ve done?

Buddha was walking into the city market one day and near the city entrance an old bitter man was sitting on a box glaring at Buddha, who carried a bright smile on his face. At the sight of him this old man started cursing Buddha up and down, left right and center, telling him how … More Not accepting the anger of others
Dedicated to all the avid book lovers I’ve ever known ~ Thank you Rosemary :) “Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes.
