    HOLI : The Festival of Colours

    That morning was full of excitements; and that day, surprisingly I woke up early. Hurriedly I got fresh and wore some comfortable clothes. I went to the kitchen to get a glimpse of what everyone else was upto. Mum was preparing breakfast and father was arranging the snacks that we would distribute to the people who would come to our house that day. My sisters and I started our own preparations. We oiled our hairs and organised the packets of colours. Mom called us to get our tummy’s full as we were to move ourselves out of the house for the whole day. We then poured the dry colours on…

    Organ Donation : A Help for A Cause

      I walked through the main entrance to the hallway; there was a long endless queue on the counter. Everywhere around me I could see people, of all sorts. An old woman crossed me walking with a stick and her granddaughter helping her to walk out of the doorway. I had no idea where to go and whom to ask. So, I went near the enquiry desk, but there was nobody. I waited there for a few minutes. A security officer came near the desk, I asked him about the enquiry staff but he was clueless. I decided to move inside the hall and search the destination by myself. A…

    Burning Trails

    During my college days, one of our professors arranged an exposure tour of our class to nearby Pine jungles. We were overjoyed as we didn’t have to study that day. Excitedly we all gathered up in our college bus, which within no time landed near our destination, the Pine Jungle. The Professor took us on a small hike through the hill to the stand. That was our very first excursion into the forest and being a forestry student each one of us was filled with enthusiasm and curiosity to observe everything and learn whatever our teacher wanted us to catch upon. So, through a narrow trail we entered the jungle.…

    Mission Infinity

      ‘Sometimes while sitting in a void all alone I feel like I am not of this world or any zone Why I’m here I have to find out soon But how? And nobody’s helping the ugly moon I am confident of his presence all around But need to explore the proofs in the ground The soul is searching everywhere so deep But couldn’t find a space even to weep’ Prakriti Singh (2006) The space is so deep, dark and a mysterious world. Being an earthy thing, we can only observe it as a wide blanket of darkness spread all over our heads touching the ground from every corner. Tiny…

    The Woman Next Door

    I was happy that day as I met with some of my close friends from school. They came to meet me in my college. I entoured them through the college and showed them everything and every place that was worth watching. We discussed so many things about our lives, the people around us and the old memories that we spent together. The whole day we roamed and ate a lot. In the evening they decided to head back to the main city to board a bus from there to their final destinations. I wanted to spend few more moments with them so I accompanied them to the city from my…

    An Absolute Vantage

    I opened my eyes and saw the daylight. I was in a big subtle ground filled with people. I didn’t remember anything, about the place, why I was there and even who I am. All I could understand was that I might be sleeping from a long time and after waking up I felt refresh like I never felt before. I stood up and moved towards the stalls that were spread all around the ground. People were talking to each other, some laughing aloud and some sat under the stalls sad and tired. There were many faces that I didn’t recognize. I tried to recall my past but no picture…

    That Unusual Day

    Like every day, that day too Arman boarded the TATA Mori Train from the station to get back to his home from the office. As usual the train was already loaded and he started the quest for a seat. Literally climbing and gliding through the gallery he scanned all the possibilities in almost every compartment. Atlast he landed over with two Sikh boys sitting near w window seat. He hurriedly adjusted himself with them and took a sigh as a sign of satisfaction. The whistle of the train blew and finally it started moving. He was watching the outside view, people walking here and there, chaiwalas shouting to sell their…
