The Ring

I found a ring on the floor, the other day: a glint, a wink that caught the sunlight every time I moved my head. No one noticed me as I stood. No one looked over as picked it up. It must have been expensive; a solid gold band, with a thin wire of silver wrapped around like the delicate silk from a spider’s web. It weighed more than I expected it to and as I

Movie Review: Happy New Year: Shun Critics, Go Watch it

I have always put my trust in the audience response more than any critic when it comes to Bollywood films. And this was reinforced on my viewing of Happy New Year. I had written off the film and went see it mainly to please my wife who is a big Shahrukh fan, partly because I had a relatively free weekend and no other choice. What I found was the critics who had given it 4/4.5 stars

Movie Review: Roar: Watch it, you might like this Man Vs Wild Film

CAST: Abhinav Shukla, Himarsha, Subrat Dutta, Virendra Singh Ghuman, and Ali Quli Mirza. DIRECTOR: Kamal Sadanah. DISCLAIMER: The title of this film holds quite an ironic significance in the director’s life. The chocolate boy hero, who could have had it all, but was cut short by mass murders in his family and never really recuperated from the tragedy, after many years now resurrects his passion by wielding the magic through a megaphone. For me Roar is

Beyond Severance…

I look at my reflection in the mirror. I see the serene body lying in front of me, smiling beatifically in a dream in some far-away realm–sans a care in the world. She’s been my wife these seven-and-thirty years, this beautiful woman here, sleeping like a baby as I watch over her… I’ve always been fascinated by the magic a little time spent in quiet reflection is capable of conjuring. My current reverie takes me

Dirty Dishes – ii

Read the first part here She left the computer screen. She looked at the sink again. They could wait until she got back. The dishes weren’t going anywhere. She needed to get out though. She felt so much better after her shower. She took her time, styled her hair, plucked her eyebrows, applied some lipstick. She was OK. They were OK, they’d get through this because they were bigger than this. They had a lot of love

Dirty Dishes – i

Daily routines were causing him to grind his teeth in the night. Her smiles seemed inane. What on Earth was there to smile about? They were scraping by, at best. There was a baby on the way, there was a mortgage to cover and she had just stopped work. Just stopped! So no benefits, no maternity leave, no money. His job certainly didn’t cover it. They always talked about starting a family, but that was

The eyes and the soul – ii

Read Part i here The business my husband was overlooking was my father’s. It was willed to me. In a love-struck impulse I had handed over the decision-making power and unlimited authority over the coffers to my husband. I sent for the company lawyer who was my father’s trusted friend, apprised him of the situation and asked him to find a way of bringing all the power back to the pivot – me. To my

The eyes and the soul – i

I had first met him a score or so years ago—a mere mite of a child scarcely four years of age; scrawny and freckled clinging to his mother’s sari as if he’d never let go of her. There was something about his expression that had struck me on that cold December morning when we’d first met. That uncanny ‘something’ still strikes a chord in my bosom whenever I dwell on that moment of long ago.

Death of a family

I stared at my little brother as he sat in one corner of his room crying, as if our parents had died. But our parents were in the next room. That’s why he stuffed the curtain in his mouth so that his sobs don’t reach the next room. Daddy would have hit him harder. Already his face was covered with bruises. A punishment for failing in the exam. That was the crime my little brother
