Arshi FF : Without You

without you: chapter 10

tengo hambre de tu boca, de tu voz, de tu pelo i crave your mouth, your voice, your hair. y por las calles, voy sin nutrirme, callado, silent and starving, i prowl through the streets. no me sostiene el pan, el alba me descuicia, bread does not nourish me, dawn disrupts me, all day busco el sonido liquido de tus pies en el dia i hunt for the liquid measure of your step. ~~~pablo neruda, love sonnet xi~~~ she still…

Arshi FF : Not Cut Out For Love

not cut out for love: chapter 10

INDEX   the train was about to pull away from the platform, the coolie ran in front of her with her huge suitcases, both precariously balanced on his head. as he ran, he kept looking back and calling out  desperately, “jaldi kariye, train miss ho jayga!” (hurry up, you’ll miss the train!) khushi trudged behind him, on slow leaden feet. she didn’t want to go. why did she have to leave? why couldn’t she stay in delhi? and why did…

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…

without you: chapter 8

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 it so…

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…

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…

Arshi FF : Without You

without you: chapter 7

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 the things i can’t…
