Ship of Theseus

Shankar was an auto rickshaw driver. Orphaned at a very young age, he was pulled into odd jobs early in his life for his survival. Every morning he would take his auto out and carried on his job honestly till night. He would always strike a conversation with the passengers he ferried and in this... Continue Reading →


Unrequited Love

He was so excited about his upcoming trip. The trip came amidst dull work as a breather and he couldn’t stop looking forward to it. He literally marked his calendar doing a countdown just like prisoners do when their day of redemption is near. He hoped to return with a fresh vigor from this travel.... Continue Reading →

Unfulfilled Wishes

As a kid; he would pick the toy gun over all other toys. As a teen, he loved watching war movies; movies on covert operations. He grew up to be a fine soldier.

The Blue Planet

A blue dot appears in the horizon. On coming closer, it is revealed to be a planet moving slowly about its axis in the cold, dark, silent space. The blue color is the color of the huge bodies of water called oceans; the white snowy patches at the poles are water in frozen form; the... Continue Reading →

Choice & Compulsion

The rattle of keyboard was accompanied by letters of different hues appearing on a digital screen. But he wasn’t happy. In fact, he hated it. He was filled with disgust looking at those words. The keys on the keyboard rattled again, this time mere black letters appeared on a white background. This time he was... Continue Reading →
