5 Things to do in India

Ever wondered, why we rush to foreign lands for our luxurious holidays even when it means burning gigantic holes in our little pockets and spilling it over for several compensatory months together…?

It’s about time we appreciate, that, our nation offers much beyond the highly popularised label ‘land of elephants, magic and snake charmers’. Yes indeed, once you step onto this land and explore the unexplored, not a single soul can escape being mesmerised by the magnificence of our country! Be it an adventurer, a foodie, a loner, a yogic, a nature lover… there’s something for everyone. As a matter of fact, the wonderful amalgamation of geographical differences along with diverse cultures, vibrant festivities and distinguished cuisines is like, more than twenty countries rolled into a single, appetising wrap, which you can keep savouring for a lifetime and still not suffice your taste buds.

Over Cookies and Coffee

They barely met, barely spoke, barely texted, barely browsed the social media and with no extra efforts their friendship had somehow managed to survive over several years. It always stayed distinct, like stardust sprinkled around, however, with a few unanswered questions. Meetings were uncalled but certain universal factors brought them together, usually for work which sometimes ended up with cookies, coffee and naughty glances. Every meeting kept getting better, it encapsulated them in those little moments which carried utter joy and consummated everything around them.  
So a meeting, one of its kind, happened on a summer evening, which changed their lives. ‘Forever’ seems a distant word because life knocks at your door, in little surprise packages but indeed, undeniably, it was something to stay in their hearts, for infinity and beyond.

After all this time

She turned the key in the lock and opened the door with goosebumps and a helluva hesitation.

Linda was simply sent the house keys through the driver who picked her up at the airport and everything seemed hard to decode. He’d promised to be there right from the moment she stepped in this unknown city of peace and tranquillity, but there she was, all to herself and travelling like, as if she was on pins and needles, through the countryside for almost two hours.

Why do you love the world? …for a little bit of Sunshine!!!

The day was too much for her to handle… even after giving her sweat and blood to the organization, even after sacrificing most of the precious family gatherings, even after burning the midnight oil with no extra perks, she was sacked for no fault of hers. How could she simply be asked to leave the company after 10 years of integrity? Well, it was the last straw and she knew that she was barking up the wrong tree. Nina called up her travel agent and got her air tickets booked to Seychelles, that tiny, isolated dot in the Indian Ocean. After a quick shopping of all the essentials, she neatly packed her bags and in no time headed to the airport.

The Misfit

It was one of those happy, bright and beautiful, summer mornings when he was ready to start school, but little did he knew, his young life would change forever. He zealously stepped into this big, luscious school waving back at his beaming mother, exuberating confidence and giving her a promising smile, that he will give his best. On entering the gorgeous classroom, he couldn’t contain his happiness to be a part of the luxuries flashing all around him. The welcoming doors, see-through glass windows, the shiny boards, the colour coordinated walls, the comfortable chairs, the sturdy desks and the personalized lockers, amazed him to bits.

Am I your favourite day dream?

Our careful eyes accidentally met, you were sitting right across my table, shamelessly devouring your Christmas pie and in a fraction of seconds I was wandering down the memory lane. Honestly, any girl would have fallen in for those intoxicating eyes but apparently, I seem to be the only one who thought this way when my friends laughed their hearts out. Hail forever Mr. Plato, indeed, beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder! 

Those feelings still smelled as fresh as a morning daisy, that excitement was brewing like hot coffee beans, and the aroma dawdled in the air.

Sudha says...

Disclaimer: Characters appearing in this work are fictitious. Any resemblance to persons living or dead, is purely coincidental. 

I am not an attractive face and many refer to me as a woman who came from the jungles – coarse and dark skinned, frizzy unmanageable hair, weird potato body structure, average height, thick lips and a big nose. I am not a brainy either that I can impress people even with my intelligence. When people see me with my husband, I am laughed at, more often mocked at, and asked a repetitive question – “Sudha, how did you manage to get hitched? Was it some black magic?”  

And somewhere in their deep-dark question, buried a bitter truth.

15 years have passed, I have no children and there isn’t any spark to the relationship I share with my husband, Shekhar. Marriage moved at a roller coaster speed, faking how beautiful and wonderful it is on the social media and elsewhere.
