Here’s the IFW link for my story – http://indifictionworkshop.blogspot.in/2013/08/in-place-between-right-and-wrong.html Sunday 4 pm in a club “Hey Pooja! What a pleasant surprise! “ “Puneet!

    A Dark Tale – A Story – Part II

    This is the concluding part. You can read the first part of the story here. Rani woke up from the splashes of rain on her skin and the sound of loud thundering. She didn’t know what time it was but judging by how little rested she felt it shouldn’t be dawn yet. The room was dark; the power was out. She sat up and looked outside the open window. A tropical storm was blowing in full force. She had always liked storms but something didn’t feel right about this one. The lightning was so frequent that the sky looked a…

    A Dark Tale – A story – Part I

    This time I am back to wearing the judge’s hat for the Indifiction Workshop once again with Leo and Jaish. And we decided: why not use our power to make people write some spooky stories? After all it’s also the season’s preference, isn’t it? Who doesn’t like a good ghost story on a rainy evening, stretching on a couch or a comfy floor mat and munching hot pakodas? The kind of stories that makes your hairs stand straight on the back of your neck? Source: Web             The ideal situation for such storytelling, as preached by…

    Holding On and Letting Go!

    I The aroma of the cake baking was invigorating. It told me that Sandhya had finally come to terms with the moving. Though she had never complained and kept perfectly enthusiastic about the move and attended my party-men and the visitors tirelessly, I knew it was never easy for her to move back here. Not only because this place bore the memories of the devastating earthquake that took away her puppy but also because she had to take a transfer to the local rural branch of her bank from the head office in Delhi. She was often complaining about fat…

    Every Tiger has it’s day!

    A little something for kids. My story in http://www.dimdima.com There was a little tigress named Tigress who lived in a jungle with her twin brother Tiger and beautiful mother Sherni. Since Tigress and Tiger were very small they could not hunt yet. Sherni hunted and brought back the food for them. Tigress and Tiger were newly enrolled into the jungle-school where Hati and Buffalo studied too. They were big according to their age and often teased Tigress and Tiger about their size. They would show off their muscle and would laugh at Tigress and Tiger’s lanky limbs.   One morning, when…
