Arshi FF : Hamesha ~ A heartbeat Away

Hamesha ~ A heartbeat away : Chapter 6

INDEX Chapter 6 “Ye toh kamaal hai! Aap mera naam janti hain.. But I like NK.. you know short and sweet“. NK’s arms were hurting, this old lady was too heavy. And instead of getting to her feet, she looked a bit too pleased, sitting on the floor squashing helpful NK. NK had rushed inside Khushi Kumari Gupta’s house while Arnav Singh Raizada found a place to park his SUV. Akash had mysteriously disappeared as soon as the car had…

Espresso Shots

one of those things… a short story

  his wife was not feeling well and when she felt out of sorts, he really couldn’t concentrate on anything. he had taken her to the hospital close to their hotel the moment she had complained of that nagging thing again. it was the feeling she always spoke of, a feeling that her chest was bursting, her head was tense and the roots of her hair pulled, she had to untie her hair and let it hang loose. her hair…

When it rains…

My earlier post made Indi di write poetry. Reading which made me think about rain. It might have been in my school years that I first fell in love with the rain. Heavy downpour early morning would mean kids got a reason to stay home, but I would go to school with double the enthusiasm. Walking through the uncharacteristically empty and dark corridors, I would hear the sound of my footsteps echo, intermingled with the sound of falling raindrops. It was easy to…

Arshi FF : Without You

without you: chapter 8

INDEX omoraboti, my friend farha has made that stirring banner.     “eternity is said not to be an extension of time but an absence of time, and sometimes it seemed to me that her abandonment touched that strange mathematical point of endlessness, a point with no width. occupying no space.” ~~~ graham greene, the end of the affair ~~~ she leaned over him and peered at his face intently. every plane, rise, fall, and curve of it, why was…

Arshi FF : Not Cut Out For Love

not cut out for love: chapter 9

INDEX   the ocean lay flat and endless, gleaming in the morning sun; fluffy white cumulus clouds took their place across wide blue skies, far away in the distance a thin arc invited… horizon. a squabble of seagulls rose from an unseen corner and flew past the sun. the sound of water murmured all around, and there was a touch of frangipani in the scent of the land. sand. powdery, soft, fawn coloured sand stretched far and uncluttered along the…

Arshi FF : Not Cut Out For Love

not cut out for love: chapter 8

INDEX   “khushi?” her hand went still, the toothbrush stayed in her mouth. she stared at the mirror, a little misty from the steam. he’d called her by her name the very first time. not the terse “miss gupta!” just… khushi. he had kissed her. khushi’s eyes went round in an instant, saucer like, her lips formed a perfect “o”, the toothbrush remained where it was. he had kissed her! that awful man. how dare he? she was going to……

Hamesha ~ A heartbeat away : Chapter 5

INDEX Chapter 5 His unrelenting grip on her slender wrist would leave behind a mark that would most probably remain for atleast a few days, considering the fact that the slender arm in question was prone to bruising quite easily. Arnav Singh Raizada, however, did not come to think of that as he hauled Khushi Kumari Gupta across the raizada mansion hall. Khushi took hurried steps to keep up with ASR’s long strides. They had barely made it across the…

Damon Salvatore

damon salvatore

I read this and thought of Damon Salvatore..   “Anything less than mad, passionate, extraordinary love is a waste of time. There are too many mediocre things in life to deal with and love shouldn’t be one of them.”   There is definitely nothing mediocre and everything mad, passionate and extraordinary about Damon Salvatore’s love. The love he had for a ruthless selfish vampire, and the love he has for a lovely modern day girl.   I read Vampire Dairies…

sarees tell stories

sarees tell stories… rukmini hall

should a chair wear a saree? at its own risk, i guess. but i was staring at this wonderful kanjeevaram silk i’d just fallen flat for and instantly bought in bangalore on a recent trip, when i felt the wish to write something come and disturb my peace. what i fell for in this one were those tiny checks in mustard and the ganga jamna border in two different colours and yes, also the rich maroony pink colour… the checks…

Arshi FF : Without You

without you: chapter 7

INDEX omoraboti, my friend farha has made that evocative banner.     whenever i hear old chronicles of love, its age old pain, its ancient tale of being apart or together as i stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge clad in the light of a pole star, piercing the darkness of time. ~~~ rabindranath tagore, unending love ~~~   “do you know, arnav, there are so many things i want to tell you. all…
