A Hope

The alarm woke her up at 7am as usual. A bit confused she opened her eyes. It would still be a few months before she would get used to it. She put her bare feet on the ground & immediately withdrew, the morning chill kissing her feet & sending shivers down her spine. Hastily she looked for her slippers, and still shivering walked off to the bathroom.
Waking up, going to the bathroom & looking at the mirror, staring at herself, wishing, hoping,  this would feel better…one day, she said to herself…everyday.

Its an ordinary story, something many of us have felt at some point in life-the need to be with someone than being alone often drives us to compromise in life. And even if we do break the routine, we get drawn back to it again.

A Short Mail Story

First things first-Happy New Year to all my readers! This is the first post of 2013 & I like the fact that it's for Blogadda's WOW(Write Over The Weekend)

‘You go home and check your Emails. You read the second mail and freeze…’. There it is again! You keep staring at the screen; the day's frustration making its presence felt. Not everything can be made sense of. Not every question has an answer. 
And yet...my mind cries out Why the hell do I get mails saying "Get V**gra at an amazing discount!" ???
