Sweet Dreams!

Suhani had vivid dreams ever since she was a child. No sooner would she close her eyes than a movie would start playing, or at least that’s what she called them when she was too young to understand what they were. ​Mama, I watched a movie when I slept last night. Rishi was in it,... Continue Reading →

Modern dating!

I thought I was looking for a boyfriend when I set up my online dating profile. I’d never had much luck with dating. It wasn’t that I wasn’t interested — I’d always loved men. Dating them was fun, the balance between a man’s personality and my own feminine one was electric, it kept things interesting. But... Continue Reading →

Ordinarily extra ordinary things!

My goal in life is to continually increase my awareness, to every day make the tiniest step to understanding myself and the world just a little bit more. Of course I read, write, think, meet new people, listen to opposing view points, meditate, go on long walks, and drive my car nowhere particular, listening and... Continue Reading →

Never forget to check your mails!

If I’m being perfectly honest, I don’t care much for the whole e-mail process anymore. I know this is going to sound terribly hipster or whatever, but I think it’s already outdated as a means of communication. It just feels clunky and slow, kind of like the way real mail started feeling as soon as... Continue Reading →

Embrace your body!

SEX. Do I have your attention yet? Ok, sweet. In our modern day society, it seems that we have been culturally conditioned to believe that the orgasm is purely based around climax: Just like waves, it comes and it goes, it ebbs and it flows. Right? Wrong. Believe it or not, like many good things... Continue Reading →

Yess, you’ve been there!

You!Yess you've been thereWhenthe winds changed their direction,the spring turned to Autumn,Days felt dizzy,And I went crazy;You calmed my soul,Fetched in peace,Held my handWalked me through Bleeds!Introduced my fears as strengths,Transformed my tears to blaze,The star in you befell me in darkest nights,In the paralyzed moments,You hugged me tightAnd so, I make sureEven if you...

Snowy diaries!

It’s been snowing forever. Every time it seems like it’s about to let up, the sky clouds over with that flat white paper look and down it comes, more goddamn snow. I stopped shoveling the walk after the first two days. My dad was always real particular about his shoveling so I try to do... Continue Reading →

Blurry lines!

I sat at a table of this dimly lit bar, unable to cross my legs properly because the skirt I chose was as tight as it was short. I was seeing him and I knew it was always wise to opt for easy access around him. I pulled out my compact from my purse, quickly... Continue Reading →

Our sextape!

Hanging in our favorite haunt. Me and Charly. Was a grey, gloomy Tuesday and we’re hiding from life. Staring at her phone, she looks up. Looks at me. Out of nowhere, she says: “I want to make a sex tape.” And then pauses. “With you.” Charly does this. Random thoughts just spew from her head.... Continue Reading →

What is Maturity?

Age is an extremely relative topic. It’s just a number, and yet it is interpreted as a measure of maturity. Age is not maturity, just as maturity is not age. And even after that distinction, “being mature” is not just a simple blanket term, you have the capacity to take certain things in a more... Continue Reading →

How to lose a guy in 10 hours!

The first thing you need to do is to make him fully believe you’re someone you’re not. So when he only wants to show you pictures of himself jerking off even though it’s a casual 5 PM and he knows fully well that you’re out with friends, you act like it’s so hot. You “lol” and send...

A different form of love!

“What a perfect time to practice for your future,” you joked quietly in the pharmacy. I told you I didn’t know how to ask for what we needed. You asked me to try. Just to you, in an aisle quietly and that you would try not to laugh. All I remembered was that the Spanish... Continue Reading →

The kind of guy a girl wants!

I’m told that being rich is pretty fucking great. I get it. It seems like life is a lot easier for people who don’t have to stress about bills, and can afford to do extravagant things like schedule a dentist appointment or buy organic produce. Having a job that puts you in a position of... Continue Reading →

Don’t you dare!

Don’t you dare close your eyes and wish for me when he’s no longer next to you. When the smell of his hair on your pillows has gone stale and you can no longer remember the scent of my shampoo, how my skin tasted when you kissed the soft spot of my temple and breathed... Continue Reading →

Date someone like this!

Don’t date someone who makes excuses to avoid giving oral. Someone who claims that he hates the taste, that it hurts his neck, that you take too long to cum. Someone who finds a reason to avoid putting his head down there every time you’re in the mood. Don’t date someone who selfishly expects to get... Continue Reading →

She wishes you to do this!

She wishes that you would place a hand on the small of her back while walking down the aisles of the grocery store. She wishes you would hug her from behind while helping her bake cookies in the kitchen. She wishes you would reach across restaurant tables to squeeze her hand and stretch your legs...

Pleasure vs Arousal!

Some of us get confused between these two concepts. We think that the same things that turn us on are also the same things that feel pleasurable. But if you examine closely your own experience, you will most likely realize that the two are separate, distinct elements of your sexuality. At times, it is quite... Continue Reading →

Sonya!

Sonya Date 1 ~ Drinks. Date 2 ~ Dinner. Drinks. Date 3 ~ Dinner. Drinks. Lots of them. Invitation to her place. — I was shocked when Sonya had me follow her car out to the suburbs to her mansion at the end of a cul-de-sac surrounded by houses that looked all the same. The girl...

Virginity!

Our society focuses so much on sex that you’d think we’re all sexual experts by the time we hit our teens. But it’s all sort of a misnomer and a false expectation to say the least. And when we shift the topic to an aspect like virginity, the crowd grows silent and shifts their eyes... Continue Reading →

1 vs all!

“What the fuck?” “How did we get in here?” “I think I’m bleeding.” “We’re all bleeding, dumbass.” My fingers reached for my slick forehead and slipped off, smearing blood across the couch as I let my hand fall limp. Thirteen of us filled the room, and judging by the gashes running from the center of... Continue Reading →

Emptiness!

It’s late on a Friday night in February. I am in my apartment. A metallic sheen of silvery light ekes through the open living room window. I’m sitting on my couch, watching the light, listening to the sound of the city outside as it churns, exhales. It’s an orchestral sound, vaguely ominous, composed of traffic,... Continue Reading →

Hazel’s smile!

Her silicone is as soft and pliable as real human skin. It even heats up to the right temperature with a pulse and everything. A dial on the back of her head gives 12 personality options, including “family friendly”, “intellectual”, “shy”, and “sexual”. She’s so realistic it’s scary, and would be absolutely perfect if she...

Only I know how Anya died!

There’s blood all over my arm, and my fingers there aren’t working too well, either. Numb things that refuse to obey. I don’t know how much time I have before it wakes up. But I can always type with the other hand. She kept asking me and asking me. God knows I didn’t want to.... Continue Reading →

Never enter the woods!

In loving memory of Toby—March 11, 2017 11:57 pm. That’s what time it was when I heard a scratching noise outside the back door of my house. I know this because I had just gotten in bed and was setting the alarm clock on my phone for work the next day. I live alone, so... Continue Reading →

Daddy it’s dark!

The search parties scoured the woods for weeks. I can distinctly remember the way the police chief spoke to us when he told us they were going to cease the search, but that they wouldn’t be giving up the fight to find Pihu. That if she is still out there, they would find her. Somehow,... Continue Reading →

After life!

When I was about to die, my life didn’t flash before my eyes. All I could think about was what my father once told me from a beige couch in an unlit study. “Above all else, humans are survivors. When one has exhausted all possibility of survival, the mind will expand its idea of what... Continue Reading →

What goes around… comes around!

“Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.” My voice shook as I spoke. “It has been two years since my last confession.” “Go on, my daughter, and tell me your sins.” The priest’s voice was low, quiet. Unfamiliar. That was by design – I’d driven 20 miles from my apartment to a church in the... Continue Reading →

Love Aaj Kal!

Today’s generation has a weird fascination with keeping love at arm’s length. We downplay any feelings that bear semblance to love, we are careful to avoid looking like we care “too much,” and it’s (almost) normal to be in love with someone you’re not even following on social media. In fact, almost every woman in... Continue Reading →

My friend’s bf helped me!

After moping around my apartment for almost three months while I nursed a broken heart, today I had let my roomies Jiya and Myra convince me to go out with them for a girl’s night out. I was about to call the cab when the doorbell rang. I was surprised since I wasn’t expecting anyone.... Continue Reading →

Are you happy now?

Hair twined between fingers. Dirt bloodied into paste. Coiled muscle, panting breath, and a broken smile. “What are you?” I’d shouted down at him. “I’m me.” I hit him again — hard enough for the bones in my hand to rattle against each other. I don’t know why it made me so angry that he... Continue Reading →

Tonight you are mine!

You’ve been warned. This story is ****very**** disturbing.Please don't go beyond this if you are under 18 years! The duct tape feels coarse. The sound it emits as it unravels cuts through the darkness, announcing its presence above the pleas for life. The dark grey confines It to the chair. When the mouth is covered,...

Thanks for being a lesson!

To say it was painful is an understatement. To say that you hurt me is an even bigger understatement. The truth is, if you had left a dozen stab wounds on my body, the way you did to my mind and heart, you would be imprisoned but no one ever imprisons anyone for the near-fatal... Continue Reading →

Maybe it’s me!

Not a intro but may be it's me who is the intro and the outro who can wash out like sound. Maybe it's me who is not fullfilling the point of view of my parents. Or it's my passion that I am fighting for with all my heart!Is it really me? Or I am just... Continue Reading →

I don’t want TINDER love!

I have had countless conversations with my ex-girlfriends over the past few years, and I have listened to them and even caught myself reciting every cliché under the sun when it comes to finding love. From, “You have to love yourself first” to “It will happen when you least expect it, what is meant to... Continue Reading →

Why fuckboys win and good guys lose?

Over dinner with two of my closest friends, we recently got into the discussion of how girls are somehow attracted to “assholes.” We questioned why they lie in bed and daydream of long mornings with people that treat them right but get hung up on people that don’t return our messages, cancel dates, and treat...

Mard banne ka asli maza aurat banke hi milta hai!

(Women's Day special) We have been raised in a culture (for centuries!) where men judge, compare, dismiss, and punish  women.

These patterns, thoughts, and behaviors have been generationally taught and ingrained in our hearts... Continue Reading →

Friendships

For everyone who left!

When someone makes a decision that directly affects you but doesn’t involve you, it says more about their character and less about what you are worth. If I could do one thing for someone today, it would be to heal the wounds that they decided not to. Writing about loss is devastating. Every time I... Continue Reading →

A story about learning to be soft!

“You’re just too sensitive.” “Don’t take it so personally.” “You have to toughen up.”  I spent my entire childhood as the object of statements like this. I was a highly sensitive child before “highly sensitive” was a commonly understood concept. The people who made these comments didn’t mean them as criticism; they thought they were...

Can your boyfriend rape you?

(Based on a real ordeal) Consent can be given. And consent can be taken away. It doesn’t make you a tease. It doesn’t make you a bad girlfriend.

Good Guys!

That helpful girl!

I used to read on the subway. Now I can’t think with the hoard of passengers, coming and going. Their movements distract me.

That damned smile!

There are a lot of things about that summer that I don’t remember, but I can clearly recall the golden sunlight filtering through the diagonal, green leaflets and falling like glittering rain onto the floor of dirt and fallen limbs.

Never look at the woman in the woods!

“What kind of snack do you want?” Tanya asked her 4-year-old son Dhruv. It was 10:00 AM on a Tuesday. Dhruv ran into the kitchen at the mention of a snack. “Cookies?” he asked excitedly. “No, something healthy. You can have cookies if you eat all your lunch.” “Okay,” Dhruv said, defeated. “Apples?” “Apples it... Continue Reading →

Sketchy Paint Party!

“One more, come on Tanvi, just one more!” I glowered at Niki as she grabbed two more Budweiser cans from the bartender’s hand. “Niki, seriously?

That painting!

I was excited to finally get a job for the summer. At 16 with no work experience, getting even a cashier position was hard. I found the family on a website that staffed professional babysitters. I was to watch a 10-year-old boy named Dhaval. His parents were leaving for the weekend on a mini-vacation and... Continue Reading →

That rooftop view!

The view from the rooftop was beautiful. The city line stretched across the horizon gradually fading into a misty blur of the cloudy sky. I breathed in the cool scent of September air.

The girl at the bar!

My friend Karan fell in love with a girl who painted. He said they met at a bar somewhere in Bandra. A quiet basement place run by an old guy who liked jazz and drank whiskey.

The sun had set an hour ago,... Continue Reading →

I do! (part 2)

To the men who support women!

To the moms who do it all, the ones pushing a cart through DMart with more kids then arms, the ones surviving in between the hours of coffee and wine, they acknowledge each other, they lock eyes and nod in some secret glance of solidarity. We have learned to praise moms in every stage of the...

I do!

(THIS IS A 2 PART FICTION SERIES... 2ND PART COMES OUT IN 2 DAYS' TIME) “Please be seated,” the priest said. The congregation obeyed with a discernible, rumble; women fixing dresses, men unbuttoning jackets if they were wearing one. Many weren’t. A collective, agitated hush filled the church. Watches examined. Looks of blank stupidity assumed.... Continue Reading →

Ghosting

It can take days to get the hint. Ghosting is the king of all unpredictable behaviors — you never really expect to find it on the menu. Usually, it happens completely out of the blue.

New year. Same Asshole!
