    By Vaidehi Sharma   It has been fifty four days since I saw you, and just in case you think that I have forgotten the formation of your face, then you are wrong. If you think that I haven’t even tried that, you’re wrong again. You should have warned me that it’s our last meeting, […]

  • Entering The Dark
    Posted in: Stories

    A few streaks of light emanating from the moon, entering the dark and somber room alighted on my face as I sat at my usual corner, the corner which has been my bed since the past seven months. I was probably the only one awake at this hour of the night while the rest of […]

  • Excerpt from a book I will never write.

    I watched him as the life of sand escaped his fingers. He seemed to be soliciting in the back of his mind. I called out his name once. Twice. Wondered if the sand leaving his fingers knew what it was passing through, the fingers that were bound by a salad of love and distress, touching […]

  • Last Leaf
    Posted in: Stories

    Everyday seemed like a new hope, a new dream, a new adventure but it wasn’t! I never lived a life of happiness. Everybody was living but I kept dreaming. Dreaming about a single desire. It almost had only branches. I had a mind-made time table which helped me in getting up early. After cleaning the […]

  • It all Happened in a Prison Cell

    The sun was up, I could hear the voices of children laughing, playing and dancing. Some were crying because they were losing money, some were playing football. Everybody seemed energetic. I could hear the voices of women, girls soaking in sun, sitting on those mats with their husbands. The waves kept coming and the kids […]

  • Not Every Puzzle Is Meant To Be Solved
    Posted in: Stories

    You want to know her, understand her thoughts but she seems like a book full of puzzles, doesn’t she? The closer you think you have come to solving her, the farther you get from deciphering her. The harder you try, the more you become tangled in her shades, just like while trying to untie the […]

    It was still dawn when I stepped out of the cab and walked towards the entry gate of the Delhi airport. The early morning air of February was pleasantly cold.

    Strange want of unfolding tattered stories of my life, as I am, redirected to another and another part, ultimately ending into an unlimited loop.I sat there, staring at the vastness of great skies, recalling all the occurrences of my life, (surely nothing to cherish) in no particular order. They were arriving through the slots of […]

  • Without You Our Garden Will Be Empty
    Posted in: Stories

    Whenever a loved one leaves, their memory eats away your heart. The air around you becomes so dense that the memories within it start to choke you. In the silence you hear their voices whispering around your ears. You hear the voices of the history inscribed on the decaying pages of your wit. Just like […]

  • A Fly

    Finally its the day when I am waiting outside the operation theatre, sitting on the last corner of that bench, dying to hear that first cry, Oh she is my angel, my baby angel. 9 months of excitement finally ending into the biggest celebration. All I wanted is her. Its the evening time, Meera hugged […]

He -My Splitting Desire
Posted in: Poetry

The mountains and the rivers were both besides us that day We held our hands and thus the winters arrived His lips were then shaped like a snow canopy Upon which my holy lips trekked That day He became the first chapter I read in years What better devastation was he! Every ladder he took […]
