A reason to smile

Someone decided today’s is best friends day.. We wish you celebrate friendship every day.. Reposting.. I must writeFor I must capture this feelingWill it do, to put it on blog?While my head is still reeling..Shall what I put in words,Typed with my hand shakingMake sense to meWhen I re-read it in the morning?The strong sweet memory,Of friendship and night long talking.A decade has passed since we metAnd yet, in happiness, my heart is gushing. Have you had that one friend…

Everyday is a lil life!

everyday is a lil life

Nowadays my heart has become like a mixed bag of emotions, one moment I am happy for no reason and the very next moment I get reminded of something sad & my heart starts to cry. I am not sure which one of it to write about. The happy stuff- coz c’mon lets accept it, that’s what everyone likes to read. Sad, depressing stuff, no one cares about. Everyone has enough of it in their own lives. But, the sad…

Little girl

Something in the giggles of a little girl Sends all worries into a twirl Something in her wonderful smile Soothes the tempers raging awhile Her colourful frills do the jig Swiveling around in the form of a fig Innocence and delight in her dance Heart turns buoyant, watching her prance Cute and cuddly, a little girl can be Forgetting the world in her company Spending time with her is a blessing Her non-stop chatter is the topping…

Let’s Start at the Very Beginning..

Starting Online Magazine

P.G. Wodehouse would often say it’s damn difficult to know where to begin a story from. Go too far behind and your readers are twiddling their thumbs, bored by the old, irrelevant or repetitive information they already know, and love or hate or found uninteresting enough to forget in the first place. Start too far into the action, and your reader is probably scratching his head struggling to make sense of what is who and who is what, or making up…

pickle

“what’s that smell?” ena said with a grimace and looked around. rosy paused in her tracks and sniffed. “where? what smell?” she said, not being able to detect any odour, good or bad. ena shook her head and looked around, then she exclaimed impatiently, “that horrible smell! don’t tell me you can’t get it… where is it coming from?” rosy brought the plate full of pickle up to her nose and sniffed, “nah, it’s not from here!” she said. “of course,…

Did Einstein Say Ghosts Exist?

Einstein say ghosts exist

  Curiosity always pops out when we talk about the mystical powers of the universe. Speak about those cold vampires of Twilight Saga or those adorable witches of Harry Potter or the nerve-racking demon of The Omen, the unresolved saga remains just as a single question – Do ghosts exist? Though there is a separate field of psychology called anomalistic psychology that digs deep into the human deportment associated with paranormal activity and tries to interpret the so-called ghost, the…

The Happy Endings – Stories by Rabindranath Tagore (10)

Happy Endings Stories Rabindranath Tagore

Most of Rabindranath Tagore’s popular stories drift towards sad endings like separation and sometimes death. One might get the feeling that all his stories are tragic. But the fact is, that he has written in every genre, from the complex to the eerie, from tragedy to hilarious comedy. Shesh rokkha is one such comedy which I already wrote about. Here are some more of the stories from the series on the Epic channel that have happy endings.   Samapti (The conclusion) Mrinmoyee is…

An Afghani Pathan, Rehman had come from his trouble stricken country to earn a decent income by trading dry fruits, shawls, etc. He befriends a little…

nimbus

  looks like it’s going to rain you say nimbus grows dense between the spaces between the cells and rills and dales and planes and membranes   within in between and in places unseen where i am not countable measurable comprehensible not skin nor bone nor sinew nor muscle nor node nor synapse in those places not yet named where I am…   you know   me?   dark black sometimes grey whorls of water in array silently gathering filling…
