True Soldier

No strings attached,
You offer your help.
Motherland comes first,
"Service before self".

"Service and loyalty",
Duty and dedication,
Sacrifice and valour,
Love for your nation.

You can stand or crouch
At a stretch for hours.
You must be a superman,
With amazing powers.
WOW: True Soldier

The Familiar Face

She was starting a new life in a new city.
She had moved into a building.
Still in the process of getting settled, she felt unsettled.

She always felt she was being watched.
She decided to capture faces in her memory.

Zero Tolerance For Misinformation

I could have kept mum just like the rest,
And allowed the liars to win the 'contest'.
They called it a 'war'; stooped low & went far.
They said- 'Everything is fair in love & war'.
I could have used my time for my personal gain,
Not 'waste' my resources & go through pain...

The Night Of Bonfire

She had adequately warned Niki.
She thought Niki had broken off with that married bloke.

Then, Niki’s wedding had been fixed.
Niki projected a squeaky clean and happy persona.

She was heartbroken to discover remnants of what Niki had forgotten to clean...
The steamy personal chats and images told a different tale.
What was going on right behind her back could jeopardise Niki’s upcoming marriage.
That married man could use all the evidence to blackmail...

Endangered

He pulled her near.
Embracing her, he asked, “It starts with one word. What’s it?”
With her eyes closed, she replied, “Excitement?”
He tightened his grip.

The Red-Hot Show

The invaders were very happy with their conquest.
As though all the violation they had indulged in was not enough, they expected the captured and ravaged princesses to dance in skimpy dresses and entertain them.
They impatiently waited for the red-hot show to start.

The sky acquired a fiery reddish tinge.
There was a sudden storm.

My Wow Gadgets

If I could invent a gadget, I'd try to invent-
A gadget that would help me detect lies.
No one can take me for a ride any more!
Thanks to my gadget, I'd be so much wise!

Need a gadget that has the answers I need!
Like where are our car keys or that book?
To know the location of my bag or dress,
My gadget's face is all I need to look!

Dazzling Darling


Jai thought of his first love every moment.
Two decades ago, it was a cold night when he had handed over his sweater to keep her warm.
She looked dazzling in pink.
He had sketched her face on his wall.

Wordista Creativa

She thought she knew all the words,
She felt she deserved all the awards.
The proud queen proclaimed another title for self-
'WORDISTA CREATIVA'- her latest book on shelf.

When her subjects didn't have any money,
She felt they could afford milk and honey!
And of course they could buy all what she wrote,
Her books were bestsellers; that's what she thought.

The poor public was busy trying to be savvinomical;
What 'Wordista Creativa' was doing was comical.
She wrote on multiple topics that she felt were vital-
The content had nothing to do with the book-title!

Car In The Cyclone

She was driving their car.
There was a sudden cyclone that air-lifted their car and crashed it in the middle of nowhere.

To her relief, both she and her daughter were safe in the car.
But, there were strange creatures in front.
Her daughter was screaming.
“I need you to stay quiet and out of sight”, she whispered to her daughter.

Some aliens were emerging from underground.
What if the aliens started firing?
