The Mariana Trench

I lost my heart the moment I saw her.

“Could you please tell me her name?” I asked the lady accompanying her.

"Mariana", she replied with a wink.

My brother, who knows my weakness, remarked, "Not again! Her name sounds like the 'Mariana Trench'! Think of Rekha!"

"Please take me for a ride on that!", she begged her father.

"That's costly. You need to work hard and earn a ride," he answered.

She took his words to heart...

Kind Karma

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

I'll never do running errands voluntarily for others again,
Because no one appreciates or recognizes my work/pain.
Rather, they feel I'm volunteering as I'll be the one to gain!
I must have ulterior motives to waste my time again & again!

Just because I have helped and supported one person,
Other people- X, Y, Z also demand my time & attention!
My kindness and good-nature goes through examination.
I find myself in an unenviable situation with no solution!
WOW: I'll never do ... again, because...

Just Jazz

He took her to the Club-house.
He still remembered her piano performance for the Club’s Annual Day two decades ago that had made him fall in love with her.
He considered himself lucky that she had agreed to marry him.

She wanted to play the piano again.
“Make me fall in love again?” he winked!

Her expert fingers got busy with the keys.
“What do you hear?” she questioned while playing her favourite piece.
"Just Jazz”.

She could hear nothing; a deadly car-accident had made her deaf.

He couldn't hear anything; the old piano had lost its sound of music.

She: They called me "Black Coffee" and laughed at me.

Her sister: Why do you consider it as an insult?

She: My skin-colour is dark and I'm skinny, but does it give them the licence to call me "Black Coffee"?

"I want a divorce," she said.

“What the heck does that even mean?” he thundered. "No one in our family has ever gone through this."

"Result of your freedom- You allowed her to take up the reporter's job," his mother added.

"Don't forget that I permitted you to work. I taught you how to be a feminist," he reminded her.

But, they made her dance to their tunes and broke her spirit.

The more they suppressed her, the more her feelings strengthened.

In Pursuit Of Miracle

“You really want to hire Aakar? Are you crazy?” Medha told her husband and colleague, Manoj.

They were reviewing the job-applicants’ interview-performances.
Medha and Manoj were co-founders of an ad-agency named Miracle.
With the increasing competition, Miracle was not doing as well as they expected it would when they had started three years ago.

“We need a miracle to save Miracle. I’m confident that Aakar can give it the shape we want,” Manoj answered.

Please Forgive Me

Amar often thought of his friend Zaid.

He wondered where his special childhood friend was.

To his pleasant surprise, he heard a song that Zaid often used to sing.

The rich voice came from across the border.

The song reminded him of their boat-trips in which they were a team.

Odia TV Shows

What my conversation told me about Odia Channel Packs

We were discussing about TV programmes in our office. We spent most of our waking hours outside home and at office. After we get back home, we look for some relaxation or entertainment while performing the household chores. I was interested to find out which shows and channels our team-members usually watched. That’s when I realized that most of them watched Odia TV shows and found Odia programmes interesting. Zee Sarthak channel is watched by them and their family-members!
Probing further, I inquired, “What is special about this channel’s shows? Why do you watch it?”
I got the following responses:

Talent Shows
Our designer Sasmita said that she likes to watch the talent shows on Zee Sarthak especially the music talent shows for kids.
Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Lil Champs 2019 is Sasmita’s favourite as she likes music and kids. 
She watches Sa Re Ga Ma Mega Challenge too.

Our tailor, Sandhya said that she watches many serials with her family. Zee Sarthak has many family dramas, romantic dramas, etc. It was interesting to be briefed about the stories of some popular drama shows:

Family Dramas

To Pain Mun (I Am For You)

Jwain No.1 (Son-in-law No.1)
