#Day8of100 #SnapItSundays The confessions that need no names In countdowns towards a rushed future With buildings half-formed, bricks unlaid The memories came forth, fresh as dew What is love? If not hatred? The power to hurt the soul, misabused In the penance for the communion, Shattered dreams venture forth Incepted into my mind, are… Continue reading Day 8: Thoughts At A Broken Bridge
#Day7of100 #SongbirdSaturdays Some songs are for beginnings, and some for the finish line. A few songs are for inspiration, the bursts of creativity, and a few others are for the calming happiness as the hand races to complete what the mind envisions. But it so rarely happens that a song fits almost all moods and… Continue reading Day 7: Song That Sways My Heart!
#Day6of100 #FictionFridays Note: This story initially began as a response to a prompt but took its own form halfway through, deviating from the crux of the picture. Therefore it has become the fiction post for the day. ~~~~~~~~~~ The local train hugged the curb of the platform, looking like it would tilt with the crowd inside.… Continue reading Day 6: The Stained Platform
#Day5of100 #ThrowOffThursday If you are a religious, practicing Hindu (bonus points if you are placed in South India / Tamil Nadu) it is not surprising to you that of all the animals we have domesticated (or at least tried to) the most venomous, the snake, also happens to be fed the most ‘satvik’ food group… Continue reading Day 5: Charmed With Milk
#Day4of100 #WordyWednesdays Inspired by: the picture above. This is not a prompt, but something someone shared with me. I loved the picture immediately because the surreal looking beach is a place I personally know and have visited. It is at once familiar and unfamiliar, bringing with it a sense of uncertain footing on a flat floor,… Continue reading Day 4: The Moon’s Song

#Day2of100 #MotivationalMondays Motivation comes from the strangest places. Sometimes even those you least expect it from. Life as I know it has always been about the little things that made a big impact, and are mostly missed in the busy flow of activities toward a bigger goal. Experiences that matter come from people we have… Continue reading Day 2: The Couple Who Care
#Day1of100 #SnapItSundays Special thanks to the friend who sent me this, and is going to be a huge part of my blogging journey! ~~~~~~~~~~ Maria Russo did not imagine even for a moment that she would succeed. But still, she had worn her best – and only – grey pantsuit for her 19th consecutive job… Continue reading Day 1: The Colourful Canvas: A Short Story
One of the best descriptions I have ever heard about writing – it is a solitary process. My personal writing habit started with using the blog to put up my thoughts in a digital form, soon developed into writing reviews and commentary, and then branching out to fiction and poetry.
