Although everyone was skeptical about the entire trip plan for our romantic vacation which included countryside stay, local cuisine, gadget-free life and many other exciting yet purportedly dangerous adventures, the forest crossing at night on horseback was the one they found the most bizarre but we, per contra, were most excited for. All night he…

The Beach Life Diaries #4

  “Harder a wave hit the rocks, The higher it rises afterwards!” – Aishah Naaz ~Evenings are breathtakingly beautiful a scene here.

The Beach Life Diaries #3

Melt the Rock Heart 💓 “How many waves for how long it might’ve taken for the sea to finally melt the rock down in the middle to meet the sandy shore? Who might’ve convinced the sea to try harder despite all the pain of hitting the rock over and over again, that someday the rock…

Life in a Golden Cage

There was a strange uniformity in everything; the energy drained faces, the dresses, the rooms, routines, the walls, caretakers; well, that’s about literally every boarding school. Though we had a well defined time table for our life there – reminding constantly about it by the ear splitting sound of that bell – I liked to…

Tiniest of Love Stories

​”It’s time to go, dear!” Kissed every wave, left my shore; A beach penned her tale… ~My first try on haiku. I never thought I could write something so short, cuz I always rant and I care about the descriptions and detailing way too much.

Daydream

​”No issues mate, good work.”  Said the tester. “Tling”  He woke up from his catnap to the list of issues just came by mail. ~Simply the life of a developer. I always wonder, whether these testing people are given special training on torturing a developer. How does they manage to show up with an issue…

The Ant Story

A tiny black ant in the sugar, I found strolling by That daddy just brought from the shop nearby. Mom took a tin and poured in the sugar, I waited as the ant came out like a skilled digger. Scared he seemed, as faster he strolled; Up, to the lid then back down he patrolled….
