A Mother Knows It All

He hated his new mom..she was caring, pretty and soft spoken yet he hated her… "Home work time…write the alphabets from A-F today and show me", she said taking out his books from the school bag… He sat down reluctantly knowing there is no escape… Half an hour later…he placed the note book before her and ran away to play with his mates. In the evening, when three of them sat down to have their dinner..she spoke..," honey, we must look for a good art teacher who could teach him drawing and painting….." "What….drawing?" "He is a boy…he would...

Create Something Meaningful

So while we were on a short getaway to Goa.., I became quite an adventurous woman….Allowing the sun to kiss every part of my body…almost all..(hold your horses)walking around bare feet on the beach early morning with the camera in my hand….

It had become a ritual to stop by and have my quota of coconut water from this lad. I didn't even know his name, so that day I decided to ask his name after I finished the chilled coconut he served me…. He flashed his majestic smile and suddenly there was a regal poise in his demeanor when he uttered his name- SULTAN.
