Trust-Devil dressed as an Angel

How do you trust someone?

This is one question that nags most of us sometime or the other. However for Miny, this was the wrong question. Reason was pretty simple; she chose never to trust anyone. For her the question was, “why to trust at all?” Her life was good, she was happy so there was no reason to give control of that happiness to another person by trusting them.

“How was your date?” Smita, Miny’s roommate asked her.

“Oh, it was fun, he was nice.”

“So, when is the fun happening again?”

“Oh you know me, fun never repeats with the same person. He was nice but that was it.”

Just friends…enough to brighten a dull day

“It is so peaceful out here; I wish I could just sit here all day.”

“Yeah, I agree…but that’s what it is…just a wish.”

“Yeah…I know that too well…we have to go back to our messy lives two hours from now.”

Tanisha was sitting behind the auditorium overlooking the massive lake with her school friend Anika. They had known each other for more than ten years from school through college and so forth. They were not best friends, they had conflicting personalities, they didn’t even got along that much, but somehow they reached out for each other when life gave them both lemons. So like a lot of such times they were just sitting there by the lake, introspecting their own lives, choices, etc in their minds. Tanisha knew Anika was upset, so she subtly tried to raise the subject. Keep on reading!!

Emotional Waves of Love

“We are going home, right??… or should I turn elsewhere?”

“Yes, you are going home in the other car, I have some work.”

“No ways bhai, I am not allowed to leave you alone today of all days…Mom will kill me!”

“If you don’t do as I say, you will prefer mom’s wrath to mine!!”

Nishant urgently needed to get some peace and quiet, which was impossible to ask in all the festivities surrounding him, more so with him being the center of attention. His younger brother Sahil was a gem of a person with a big heart. But, lately he was acting like an inseparable tail of a dog. Dog being himself. He loved Sahil, however it was all starting to get the better of him, besides he needed some time to ease out. Keep on reading!!

Justice League of friends

“Be careful sweetie; don’t go too close to the railing.”

“Okay, Papa.”

“What’s wrong? Why are you crying?”

“I am afraid the teacher will scold me in school tomorrow, my homework is not complete.”

Taking her in his arms, hugging her close, he assured her, “Don’t worry sweetie, I will help you finish it.”

Between tears, she replied, “But, she will still scold me, she favours other students over me.”

He assured her again, “Don’t worry, I will have a word with her, so this doesn’t happen again.”

Tanya was sitting by the railing of the hill top, lost in memories of 6 year old Tanya with her Superman.

One Trip – New Beginnings

“Do whatever your hearts wants you to do”

Aditya suggested to Kshitija.

Aditya and Kshitija were lying on the little grassy area atop the cliff they trekked that day with the rest of their trekking group. They were gazing at the stars in the clear night sky, feeling the wind blowing against their cheeks, gently swaying away their hair. They were a little distance away from their camp site. They had lit up a small fire and they were now feeling cosy lying there gazing at the stars in the cosy warmth of the fire.

Passion Marathon

“I don’t know what the hell it is that I am doing”.

Saloni told her roommate Kavya, who asked her, “What are you talking about?” Saloni told her, “I wake up every morning with certain negativity, feeling I am going to spend one more day doing everything which is not making me feel satisfied.”  Kavya didn’t really know where this was coming from but she knew she should support her friend, so she told her, “You should do some introspection, and find out what makes you happy, what is your passion and then follow that through with a new plan.”

Dilemmas of heart

 “I will miss you.”

These were the last words Sachin heard when he was at the door of Meera’s house, to which he replied, “I love you too.” It was almost after two months Sachin had come to visit Meera after she had left for her home town. Lately things have not been fine between them, but they had patched it all up for fresh start before she had left. After that each and every passing day without her was like burning in fire for Sachin.
