5 sentence fiction

He placed the flowers and the cookies on her grave. These cookies used to be her favorite. He remembered the way she used to get all excited, when he bought them for her. He knew that she loved him more than her life and she proved it when she came in between and took the snake bite instead of him. A lone tear escaped his eyes as he whispered I miss you so much Maggie and left the Pet cemetery.

(55 words)

She heard the footsteps nearing and she quickened the pace. Her heart was hammering against her chest. She could hear their obscene talk and laughter. When the gate of her apartment block was visible, she almost ran towards it and dashed upstairs. She locked herself inside her flat, crouched on the floor and broke down.

We Indians are the biggest hypocrites in the world.
1. We expect our daughter in laws to cover their heads but its ok for them to relieve themselves in public because there are no toilets in the house.
2. Blame the rape victim rather than the offender. Why? Because boys will be boys.
3. Sari is considered a traditional and a decent outfit for women even though your naval and your back is visible.But jeans and t shirt which covers your whole body is considered indecent and invites assault.
4. A man can make his wife pregnant, that is a sign of his manhood. But if the same man helps his wife during pregnancy or in taking care of the new born, he is a jhoru ka ghulam.
5. The daughter is expected to stay with her abusive husband, even though he may kill her, because log kya kahenge(What will the people say?)

Oh I can go on and on about this, but I will stop here. I think the change should begin from each and every household. Unless we teach our boys that women are also human and they deserve respect and love, the abuse against women will not stop.

Why a blog?


I consider this blog as an outlet to my creative ideas and my opinions about anything and everything in this world that holds my interest. I find writing to be therapeutic. Being an introvert, it is hard for me to share my feelings openly with anybody. But keeping everything bottled up inside me is also difficult. There is only so much that you can handle. So I feel blogging is the best way to let everything out. 

So this is the beginning of my blogging journey and I am very excited and nervous at the same time. I will try to post as regularly as possible and hope that I can learn and make new friends in this journey.


Hello World!!
