“Are you sure this is ok? We are not supposed to wander.” the Little Brother asks.
“Come on, you silly. We haven’t seen them for ages. They won’t know. And they play the most fun games”, the Older Sister replies.”There. Can you hear them now?”
“Ring-a-ring-a-roses,
A pocket full of posies;
Hush! hush! hush! hush!
All fall down!”
 

The Stamp Collector

Posted in

The boy had started collecting stamps when he was seven years old. An uncle had gifted him with a stamp book for his 7th birthday. He had wished for a train or a G.I.Joe, but his uncle thought it was time the boy took up a hobby.
 His sister had helped him tear off his first stamp from their father’s envelope and place it in his new book. Soon, he learnt to cut them neatly with a scissor.

Tuesday
She walked down the milk aisle ,pausing in between. One carton fresh milk and one tub of strawberry yoghurt . It was always the same. Usually milk was picked up last, so I knew she would be heading to the cash counter next. She lingers at the ‘This Week’s Grabs’ section and then continues towards the counters.

 "All eyes fell upon the lady who had got up to collect it. A beautiful woman, dressed formally. There were many like that in the business world, but this woman was special. She looked really young. “Ladies & gentlemen, Aditi Sharma is the 24 year old brain behind the leading Media House Blitz Channel” announced the anchor. A 24 yr old bagging the best entrepreneur award? Heck, she is young, all in the audience thought.

'Don't be a fool, we haven't come all this way to just go back...we are going in.'

It was a clear sky and a full moon night. It was 6PM and a cold wind blew across Tobu’s face.
Darjeeling was cold even in summer. Tobu and his friend Debu stood in front of Mandeville – a duplex construction on the edge of a cliff overlooking the hills and a distant Kanchenjunga.

IdioT

According to almost all the doctors that I know who could afford to go and see the movie, the most unrealistic part of 3 Idiots was the child-birth scene.
Needless to say affordability was more temporal than financial. I for once thought that was perfectly okay. Every second day you read about child birth stories on a table tennis board at a major engineering college.
