II – Flying Away

We had met four years ago on a rainy day. Maybe that was an omen. Even the gods cried at our encounter knowing what was in store for us. No, there was no singing and dancing in the rain nor was there romantic music in the air, just the howling of the wind and the rain dancing on my car. Read more »

Can I Sing for You?

In the middle of night when I was lonely in my room and when everything was silent under shadow of dim light, my phone started ringing. With tensed and nightmare still lingering; I squinted in my watch. It was 1 a.m. Highly dazed, I picked the phone. “Hello?” “I am looking for you,” woman’s voice Read more »

Late Night Visitor

I drew the shades of my 2 feet window apart trying to lend my ears to the patter of rain that was playing pleasant tunes in my ear one wintry night. Thick droplets of rain were battering the ground, excavating lumps of loosely embedded earth out. Attired in my night gown, I placed my coffee cup on the window Read more »

Apparition of a granny

It was a weary climb uphill to my hamlet. The path led through scrubs of thorny boughs overhanging undulating route that abutted against barley field on both sides with copiously grown red crowns nearing harvest.
