Fishy Voiceless Love-Story

The prince did not recognize me.

He had forgotten our love-affair.

I screamed, "Don't you remember me? I am your Ariel..."

But, there were no words…

There was a new girl in his life, who was going to be his wife.

But, he had promised to marry me.

If I had held my tongue...

It was amazing to see little Lina solving complex sums...
All the more as her parents were uneducated migrants.

Lina was born when they arrived in New Mexico for construction work.
A big market had been razed and a skyscraper was getting built in its place.

Smart Charger For Smartphone

In today’s tech world, smartphones and gadgets play a major role and are extensively used.
However, these power-hungry devices consume electrical energy and their batteries need to be charged. Smartphone-batteries use more power when all the advanced features like GPS, Wi-Fi etc are turned on. By turning off these features and using the Power-Saving Mode, best usage of smartphone is not possible.
Solution of a 'charger that automatically disconnects itself' can be available in future phones. I often wish the batteries of gadgets were intelligent enough to ensure wireless charging from a variety of available power-sources viz. solar energy, wind energy etc. I do believe that this will be a distant reality with inductive/solar charging for gadgets (in which the gadgets get their required charge from surrounding power-sources). Phone-chargers will then not be needed!

Great Gift

Rosy toiled to maintain her rose garden.
She had won many flower-show awards.
“Please give me 6 roses” her neighbor Dev begged her.

Rosy’s roses were very beautiful and famous.
But, Rosy hardly sold them for money.
It had to be for a noble cause or someone’s need or to barter.

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

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...
WOW: Blog Using The Words Could, Should & Would

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...

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!
WOW: Invent A Gadget. What Would It Do?
