I Am Beautiful

 “You want to become an actress! Have you seen your face in the mirror?

She remembered the production-house’s casting-agent’s jeering words.

How he mocked her!

I am beautiful the way I'm”, she assured herself.


She read the first draft of the book she had written.

It was titled- “I Am Beautiful”.

It was a self-help book.

In fact, it was actually a “note to self” book she had penned for herself.

You Are The Reason Of My Smile

It was an important meeting.

He was engrossed in the presentation.

He had forgotten that he had to pick-up his son from kindergarten...

When he realized, it was already late.

He rushed to the kindergarten.


His wife used to pick-up earlier.

He went running inside.

His son wasn’t in the waiting-room...


A frantic search...

The Lunch Date

It was a bright sunny day.

He was driving fast to be on time for the lunch-meeting scheduled in the neighbouring city.

After he had reached the outskirts of his city, he got a call that the client had rescheduled the meet to the following weekend.

He stopped his car and decided to check out the new restaurant that had opened in that area.

The place looked great.
