The Denouement


“Shouldn’t you be on the Mumbai flight?” Angel asked.

Laksh shrugged. “A brief detour.”

“Weren’t you dying to meet your sister?” Angel was still smarting. Just my luck – one decent guy in the batch and I look like his sister.

“You can resuscitate me.” Her heart fluttered. If only.

It was a fun flight back to Delhi. At least they were friends.

“Bye.” Angel said.

“Thanks for your company.”

Despite herself, Angel blushed. His eyes were warm. Too warm.

“My Namaste to Didi.” She reminded herself.

“Drop me at the Departure gate?”

Angel stared.

“By the way, I am an only child.”

FFftAW #71: Crush(ed)

photo-20160620054715745 As Angel entered the library, her pace slowed and her breath quickened. She cast a quick glance at the corner seat. It was empty.

“Cheer up! Your crush will soon be here.” Divya teased.

My crush?” Angel sneered. “I couldn’t care less.”

“There comes Laksh.” Divya grinned. “Your fan is cute.”

Feeling her color rise, Angel sat down and opened her books.

She sensed his eyes on her but she kept hers determinedly lowered. Until curiosity overpowered her. She looked up to find his eyes trained on her – an intense yet pleading look in them.

Embarrassed, she gathered her books and trotted off.

To her horror, Laksh followed her. “Wait!” he caught up with her just outside the door.

Red-faced, heart thudding Angel wondered what she would say if he came clean about his crush – dared she also…

“Excuse me?” She stared.

“I said I am sorry I didn’t mean to stare. You look exactly like my elder sister, a mother to me, miss her so much…”

FFftPP # 24: A Dino Tale



A Dino Tale

“MOM! Look what I found.” Dev ran inside.

“Yuck! What a mess!” Khushi dragged him off for a scrub.

“Why did you throw it? It was a T. rex bone!”

“No it wasn’t. It’s too small for a T. rex!”

“It was his finger bone.”

Khushi ruffled his hair. “You certainly have a T. rex bone in your head.”

“Really?” Deva’s eyes shone. “Oh I wish I was all T. rex bone.” He loped around howling and snarling.

Khushi couldn’t help laughing. “But remember, T. rex don’t eat Maggi.”

“Then I will be a Brontosaurus.” Dev decided.

“More like Maggisaurus!”

Deva gave a whoop and chanted. “Yay! I am Maggisaurus!”

What the hell Aman! Can’t you ever do anything right?”

Dev froze and stared at Khushi. She smiled at him reassuringly.

“Mom,” he lowered his voice, “I think Daddy is a T. rex.”

Khushi’s lips twitched. “Really? You think so.”

He nodded. “Yes. He especially likes to chew on Aman Uncle.”

Khushi snorted. And me.

“Where’s Chotti?”

“Sleeping. Why?”

“Better keep her away from Daddy.”

“I thought you loved Daddy?”

“I do. He is T. rex! But I love Chotti too.” He paused. “Mostly.

Hello to all fans of IPK.

As you all know, Ek Jashn is out and I guess many of you would love to air your views – like the good old days.big grin So taking a cue from vks, here is the perfect opportunity to speak up. And the good news is – to comment you dont need to provide your email ID. batting eyelashes

So what are you waiting for – get those fingers to dance on the keyboard – Happy days are here again. I wonder if Khulasa mami could be tempted to wake up from her stupor. thinking

EDIT 1: I have only recently come to realize that some of you are still reading Silver Streaks. I am indeed very touched – thank you. While I cannot at this juncture promise a resurrection of SS but perhaps I can (and indeed have been) be inspired to write a few flash fiction which I will link up to this page as and when I post them. Hope you like and do leave me a note – that works wonders as encouragement and inspiration 🙂

EDIT 2: This Post seems to be pretty popular for some reason! I wish I knew what you as a reader was searching for. Anyway, yielding to the (diverse – mostly internal) calls, I have started another Page – From DM’s Desk where all stories based on IPK/SS will be indexed.Two more have been added recently.

So if you havent read them already, please hop over there for a bit of fun and chitchat – as always I look forward to your comments and reactions.
