Super Short Story – Theme “Education”

I have always been disheartened with the perception of education by some people in our country. Education is not just about holding a degree or diploma in a particular field. It is also about being sensible, sensitive, aware, discerning and responsible. It is good to see that nowadays more schools and parents have started to focus on all the aspects of development of a child and have started sensitizing children about being a worthy part of the society. Moreover, it is important we look within ourselves and introspect before we comment on someone else’s education or intelligence quotient. These feelings have inspired me to write this story on the theme “Education”.

Super Short Story – Theme “Time”

It is micro fiction time again – this one is on the theme “Time”. This idea came to my mind at 3:00 AM in the night while putting my toddler back to sleep. :-)

Super Short Story – Theme “Lifeless”

I have often heard people say that prostitution or porn should be made legal because it is a personal choice on both sides. But, the fact is that in our country, in most cases it is not a “choice” on both sides. From the point of view of the adult indulging in it as a “buyer”, it might be harmless but what about the other side? Having personally worked with the girls forced into prostitution or even porn sometimes, I know that the condition in which they survive is pathetic. I am sure you would not even want to hear about the torture they go through which forces them to give an impression of “willingness”. Trust me, most of them do not want to be a part of it and those who do, do it not because of being “professional” but because they know they are not going to be accepted in society to do anything else. They begin to “accept” this as life . Point is that human trafficking and all other vices associated with this industry exist because there is a “market” for it. So simply saying, it should be a choice and made legal is not the way to go about handling this complex web of a murky problem. A lot of actions need to be taken in conjunction to deal with it. Think about it !

Super Short Story – Theme “Blue”

Super Short Stories are a great trend nowadays and they are fun too. It is a challenge to convey a story in just few words but if done well, it is very effective and stays in the memory for a long, long time. Here is my first attempt at one on the theme “Blue”.
