It could have been Me!It could have been You!

I was just 15 then. It had already got dark so as soon as the class finished, I rushed back home. Somewhere I felt, I was being followed. I quickened my pace. He too matched my steps. Just before my house, there was a turn which was not well lit. That was crossroads. He didn't … Continue reading It could have been Me!It could have been You!

That one gift !!!

Ria and Vishal sat in the balcony, sipping their morning tea and surfing through the morning news. The newspaper was full of sale advertisments.

This Diwali – Gift someone love.

Diwali is around the corner. What I like about Diwali are the lights. Even in Dubai I have never missed that. Beautiful lights adoring the balconies in the night sky.
