The conversation

‘Mom, where is papa?’ she asked in her happy, excited voice. ‘In the guest room’, her mother replied shaking her head in disapproval and she rushed towards the guest room. She entered the room to find her father sitting quietly on the sofa and looking blankly at the wall. The room was dimly lit. He wore no expressions on his face. However, his face was calm. She walked towards him, sit beside him and hugged his arm affectionately. He didn’t notice her coming, he was too involved in his thoughts. ‘Come beta’ He hugged her affectionately. ‘Are you fine dad?’ She asked, concerned about her father sitting lonely. ‘I am so happy for you beta’ he assured her. ‘You look stressed’ ‘oh no no no, I am not stressed at all. In fact my stress has been washed out. You were my biggest stress, and you’ll be gone soon.’ Tears rolled down his cheeks. There were myriad expressions on his face. He had a smile of happiness. His face sparkled with pride, the pride of being a father of such amazing da…

The Reunion

The Reunion I parked the car and walked past by the big cage-like rustediron gates which we would cross every day fifteen years back. And the lush green lawns welcomed us. I could smell the roses, the daisies and the lilies amongst many other beautiful flowers. The aroma of the lush green garden took me back in times. We would sing morning prayer here. We would eat our lunch and then play some games here. I spend the best years of my life on these lawns. Past the lawn stood the main 3-storey building. The main building housed office of the principal and the cafeteria and the junior section. Behind the main building there was the tall 5 storeybuilding which housed primary and high school classes. I spent most of my childhood in this building. And to the left of it, stood a new 5 storey building  on the land where once was a big play garden. We used to play kho-kho & kabbadi and football &cricket. We would play other random games which have no specific names, they aren’t any real…

I Love Social Media

The impact of social networking sites on the lives of people is just incredible. While the benefits of social networking mediums can’t be argued however it’s interesting to see how these platforms have transformed people’s life. Let’s take a look on what these social media platforms have turned people into: Passion-followers: Surprisingly no one was living their “Passion” before the social media sites evolved. People were living too dreary lives working 8 hours and spending time with family and friends. Thanks to social media for making people realize to live their passion. Why should people work and live a happy life. Rather they should follow their passion (which is somehow imposed by the social media) even though they have no skills. You like to hear music so music is your passion and you must follow it, no matter if you have the talent or not. No one tells what exactly a passion is and how one should pursue a passion as a career. Being a foodie or clicking food pictures is not a pa…
