A mid-week blog post to share the publication of my
humour piece on the special occasion of Boss’ Day in
You know how parents always bow down to the wishes of the littlest one in their
family? Not sure about you but that’s me all the way, and here’s my ode to my
three-year-old for being a tough taskmaster on his direct reports:
I’m happy to share the publication of my story Open in Spark!
This has an interesting story behind the story. I
had written it long back when Orkut was decommissioned, but subsequently set it
aside as I wasn’t too happy with it. The other day I was randomly browsing
various literary journal submission guidelines and I came across Spark. By coincidence the theme was
‘Secrets’ and by another fantastic coincidence the theme deadline was that very
I spruced up my story the best I could and sent it off. It was accepted a week later and has gone through three rounds of edits (the editor helped me improve the portions that had left me unsatisfied).
I’m pleased to
share an essay of mine after quite a long gap. The HerStry blog had put out a call for
submissions matching the May theme of motherhood. I sent in my submission and
in ten days I got the happy news that it was accepted for publication.
A few years
ago, a sudden health scare drove me to the hospital for a couple of medical
tests like an MRI and another to detect for TB. All came back negative and
nothing worrying, but it did spark a story idea for me.
If a man suspected
his wife of cheating on man, who could he approach to help solve his troubles? In
my story he consults a godman, who suggests a slightly unconventional approach
to detecting the wife’s infidelity.
wondering why everything’s looking different, it’s because I changed the theme
again! I hope it’s not too jarring a change but the theme really caught my eye
and I changed it without even really meaning to. The last such transformation happened
more than a year back so it was long overdue.
Do drop me a line with your thoughts on the new theme!
