Chapter 6 Arnav and Khushi came into the living room to see Nani and Di, both fuming and waiting to unleash their anger on them. ‘Nani!’, called Arnav worried, looking at the annoyed faces of his loved ones. ‘Chotey, I never thought you would do this to us’, Nani complained ‘Me? What did I do? What are you talking about, Nani?’, asked Arnav ‘Don’t pretend as if you don’t know what I’m talking about. How could you do this, Chotey?…

who wrote “the zing thing”?

goldspot add - zing thing

i think i need a sleuth on the job. would mr poirot like to step in or maybe mr holmes? they say, and they obviously haven’t a clue, that you can find anything (read everything) on the net. alas, not true. for the most part of my morning today i have searched, at first confidently, then impatiently, finally desperately… for something you’d think was pretty simple to find: the name of the advertising agency or the copywriter who wrote a…

Arshi FF : Not Cut Out For Love

not cut out for love: chapter 20

INDEX   khushi sat, distracted, at the dining table. buaji huddled on the sofa, fanning herself with a palm leaf fan and looking at sanka devi with an arch look. behind the visible and familiar exaggerated air of impatience lurked a worry, a concern. something was not alright with her niece madhumati ji was absolutely sure. she had come back looking dejected the night before last after dinner at the raizadas. payaliya looked somewhat down too. but she had recovered…

Any Body Can Dance(2) but ‘Not anybody can act’

Any Body Can Dance 2 movie review

  This is a story of a famous and a highly loved dance troupe that suddenly faces failure, tries hard to gain back its reputation and eventually succeeds! But trust me, the journey to regain their lost glory is not at all heroic! This movie fails at so many places that it’s not even funny! 2 and a half hours of non-stop torture! Very poorly acted and directed! Inspite of casting fresh talent (Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor) and inspite…

road to singapore

alive and dead in lim chu kang

i think i’ll always remember the moment when i looked up and saw the tree. it was breathtaking. no exaggeration or worry about using a cliche here, i felt something rushing through me while my eyes stayed glued to the tall dark one, slightly shocked. where do they make such unspeakably beautiful trees? who made it? how terribly majestic as if it owned this planet. i think i thought of the little prince and his capricious rose. if i had…

Hamesha ~ A heartbeat away : Chapter 16

arshi ss Hamesha A heartbeat away chapter 16

INDEX Chapter 16 The rain continued to pour down heavily, fogging the glass. Inside the SUV, in the little ambient light that shone, Khushi Kumari Gupta stared in shock at Arnav Singh Raizada. “shaadi? Marry now? Arnavji we can’t marry now. Nobody else is here…” “Shut up Khushi”. His face was inches away from hers. Breath still hot and unsteady from the heady kiss they had shared. In a languorous movement he moved back straightening himself. “I did not say..…

you fold the covers

you fold the covers and swish the hour away as you walk to the door not once do you turn back and smile the smile that you gave me as you’d pulled the cover and spread it out like the stars above only hours before dark and dancing are your tresses how they fall to your unconquered waist across your invincible back oh that slight sway in your walk your smooth articulate hips won’t you turn just once and look…

A Song of Love

song of love poetry

Vivid dreams, seethe tenderly A lore of love, for you and me Blades of grass, that branch with a swing Fluttering fireflies, their promise of spring Drizzle of rain, rumbling thunder Dash of snow, our blissful surrender Fire from woods, smolder of lips Your sultry touch, my heart that skips Tranquil moonlight, tempestuous gale Flickering candlelight, that hidden trail Words and thoughts, smile and a sigh Our steady gaze, under a clear night sky Shower of stars, a drop of dew This dance of…

The Dilemma – A short story – Chapter 5

The Dilemma - A short story

Chapter 5 Khushi looked upwards towards the stairs to see if Arnav was coming back or not. ‘Laad Governer kahin ke!’ she thought and continued ‘Said we would tell this together. Now he has left me alone with Nani and Di and escaped from here. And this Aman too, every time he manages to intrude with his phone calls. Wonder how he does that? Some telepathy I guess. Got to do something about him. But, later. Meanwhile, I have to…
