Beyond Every Border: Chapter 50: Only Once

Manasvi took a leave from the women she had met and returned to sit in the cab she had hired from the hotel. Once she was inside the cab, she started making calls once after the other, to Krish, to Anshuman’s father, RajSingh Shekhawat, to the Chief. The Chief’s phone was out of the coverage area. Krish informed her that […]

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 49: In All Fairness

Anshuman was kept in a dark cell, where only a small window almost touching the ceiling, allowed faint light from the street lamp. The police headquarters located in the central part of Karachi had four such cells. All were full of criminals nabbed for different crimes. Thankfully, Anshuman was not kept with any other culprit. He was kept separately. And […]

The Size of Love: Chapter 4

He might have said that he was going to love the baby more but deep in his heart, he knew that he could love nothing and nobody more than he loved Nandini. She was the centre of his Universe. Sole axis on which his life revolved. His happiness, his dreams, his ambitions began and ended with his desires to provide […]

The Tanishq Ad Controversy – My Take

An advertisement made by a jewellery company was boycotted. Not just any dubious company, but its Tanishq – a Tata enterprise – a group who is known for its patriotism, values, culture, and loyalty to India, who have donated hundreds of crores of money in every tragedy or pain the nation has faced. Their intentions can never be doubted. Never. […]

The Size of Love: Chapter 3

Manik couldn’t concentrate on the TV even when his favourite soccer team was playing. He found himself pressing his lips together, biting his nails often, pacing around the room every few minutes, and then trying to concentrate on the TV but nothing seemed to work. Now, as an afterthought, he regretted not accompanying Nandu in the labour room. When the […]

The Size of Love: Short Story: Chapter 2

Nandini was admitted to one of the best maternity rooms. They had planned everything in advance. They had already paid for the package of the delivery, the room, the services required – both doctors, maternity nurses, neonatologists etc. Manik didn’t want to leave anything for a later stage so he had prepared for the hospital facilities. He settled Nandini on […]

A MaNan Short Story

I’ve been editing Spark & Spice, these days. It’s a big responsibility to weed out the grammar, spelling errors, repetitions & blunders from a longggg story without messing with the storyline, deleting dialogues, or playing around with the characters. Only I know how I control the writer in me to stop writing it all over again 😃 Because, every writer […]

You Matter

Hello dear people, It’s Saturday. Time for my Saturday ‘My Corner’ post. I won’t try to write any experiences or thoughtful posts today. Nothing fancy. Nothing exceptional.

Hello Dearies, I’m late for this week’s ‘My Corner’ post, supposed to be posted on Saturday. But this Saturday, 3rd, was my birthday and so I didn’t get time to write a post. I make a lot of resolutions, every now and then – on New Year’s eve, on Diwali, during Ganpati festival, on random occasions, etc. So, doing that […]

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 48: Everything I had

The ACP kept looking at Anshuman while he finished his call within the time limit set for him. 60 seconds. Anshuman handed back his phone to the officer and muttered a humble – ‘Shukriya!’ The officer didn’t reply to him and walked away with his phone. Anshuman walked back to pace around the cell, hoping for Manasvi to get in […]

  It’s a Saturday. And as promised, here I am. To be with all of you, to speak to you and listen to you. Covid19 pandemic is still living with us.

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 47: For Each Other

Apologies for posting late. love you all. Take care. Stay blessed.  ………………………………………. Anshuman was escorted to the nearest police station in the central old city of Karachi under a stringent security arrangement. He could feel the tension in the atmosphere. But speaking anything felt useless. They were not going to believe him, he knew by instinct. He was made to […]

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 44: New Emotions

‘Oh, God! How will she go back to India? She doesn’t have a passport!’ Anshuman buried his face in his hands and heaved a deep sigh. He now knew what had been so troublesome for so long and had made him restless. The rest of the journey passed counting minutes until they landed at Abu Dhabi airport. Anshuman informed his […]

The Masquerade: Sample Chapter 4

4 ‘I was being stalked. Who was he? Rudra? Was he following me? But why? Rudra appeared genuine and he left the clinic gracefully. Why would he do so?’ ‘Then, who if not him? An admirer? A psychologically unstable patient? A serial killer? Should I tell di and dadababu about it? No, they’ll be worried.’ Mrinalini was quiet for a […]

The Masquerade: Sample Chapter 3

  3   Twelve years is too long a time when spent away from people you care about. Too short, when asked how well you remember them. ‘Was he even there? In flesh and blood?’ Mrinalini wondered. He could very well be another hallucination of hers. She had been getting them more frequently these days. The frown on his face, […]

The Masquerade: Sample Chapter 2

  2   October 2017 Cremona, Italy Cremona, one of the most beautiful cities in Italy, boasting of an enormous cultural heritage and a socially rich legacy, woke up to a lazy winter morning to witness the sunshine tearing through the darkness of the receding cold night. The ancient Gothic architecture, the unique pattern of similar-looking buildings, and the deserted […]

The Masquerade: Sample Chapter 1

  1   February 2016 New York   It is always difficult to judge what deceives a human being the most. The heart that believes all instincts, devoid of any logic. Or the mind that is mighty enough to create any logic that justifies its fancy beliefs. Mrinalini stopped writing. Not because she was short of words. No. In fact, […]

Update tomorrow!

I know I had said that I will update today but a lot of time got spent today in talking to people who were facing an issue while commenting and logging in the blog. Some even thought that I had purposefully left them out. If any of you is thinking like that, please rest assured that it is nothing like […]

Starting from few paragraphs of last update – “If you think that I will not be able to understand your responsibilities, commitments, your dreams for your life… if you think that the life-threatening nature of your work will come between us… I want to tell you…” She started speaking in a confident voice. He left her hand and touched her […]

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 40: Love

He had tried hard, not to fall in love with her. And he had been successful. Until now… And now, he didn’t even know if it was any worth to try harder, anymore! …………………… Anshuman knew that there was no point in trying to fight with himself anymore. It wasn’t worth it. He knew that he had fallen in love […]

I have no words to thank you for your support, for standing by me when I need time, for being understanding with me, and bearing with me through my deadlines.

Hello everyone, I hope all of you are doing fine. I strongly believe that we manifest our destiny by positive or negative thinking. I have always, always believed in this. Not just thinking, but speaking and believing in something manifests it in its extreme form. So, by consistently saying that 2020 is the worse year, we are making it worst. […]

RIP Sushant Singh Rajput

I didn’t post anything in the last two days as I am deeply disturbed by the tragic news of Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise. We have lost another young life today. So promising. So bright.

Give It Time

  Hard times are those storms that shower endlessly and leave only when they either break a person or find him too tough to be broken. Blessed are those who know how to deal with changing circumstances, difficult situations, harsh times, and tough people. Rest of us, learn with time, as we get hurt, take steps to deal with the […]

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 36: A Formality

She could palpate his raging emotions troubling him that he couldn’t control. To add fuel to his fire, she added in a cautious tone, “I don’t care.

Beyond Every Border: Chapter 34: Trust Me

He had never expected that she would say ‘this’. Not even in his dreams. Neither did she ever imagine that she would speak like this with anyone. With him! But such words are not planned and articulated. They just spill out. Like emotions. Like tears. Like an overwhelming surge of a deeply felt pain. The way she didn’t think even […]
