Mag: Not a fairytale

Joachim Buecklaer, 1560
I have grown up listening to fairy tales from my grandmother. Now, at this age, I don't believe in them.
Once upon a time, long long ago, a beautiful princess, evil things around her, prince charming, glass slippers happily ever after.

Here I'm owner of this estate that my father left me, but what I am is a princess with oily face, dark circles, rough hands.
Evil people, oh yeah suits my scenario, look outside the window, my step-sisters playing and I am here making an elaborate lunch for some dork suitor for my sister
Prince charming, Yeah! The only man I meet everyday is our 70 year old butler, so much for the charm.
Glass slippers, I am happy to have even worn out, old clogs on my feet, Glass Slipper, Phooey!
With a smirk on my face I say happily ever after and butcher the stupid animal in this deary old kitchen.

Not always is a damsel in distress have a fairy tale.

ABCW: Traffic

Picture this:
PC: Google Images/Traffic Congestion in Mumbai
Traffic Jam *beep bonk paaaa peeee poooo beep beep beeeeepppppp*

Does it sound normal to you? then, my friend you are in India

Very inconsiderate people, you know you are in a traffic, or a red signal. Honking like a mad person is not magically going to make way for you.
Neither can go drive on the heads of other cars and go ahead, then why can't you just stand there patiently instead of pressing that horn so hard than it goes right in and comes our of your bonnet, Like seriously, I don't understand..What is the hurry?

Its not that you have a dying patient or a pregnant woman in labor in you car,then why that crazy honking.

Do you realize how annoying you sound?

Using that horn during an emergency is valid
Using that horn to notify that you are in full speed in a junction is valid.
Using the horn to warn some idiot crossing is valid.
Using the horn to make the person driving in front of you realize that the road in front of him is empty and he is blocking you is valid.

But, honking for no reason? Dudes,and some Ladies, get a life, get some driving etiquette's, else stop driving, you don't deserve a vehicle

Mag: Cooing

I look through my infra-red binoculars. 
Yes, I see my target.

Alpha Coo to Delta Coo!
Alpha Coo to Delta Coo!

Delta Coo reporting!

“Get the flight mode on Alpha Coo, we have precisely 20 seconds window to finish our mission”

Delta Coo "I am on Sir"

With wings upright they flew down the very dangerous mission.
They land neatly on the flat surface of the table and take big piece each of the cake. They look at each other and give a victory Coooo.
Now, they spot a danger, the lady of the house with a broom.

Alpha Coo to Delta Coo, "Mission Accomplished, Lets fly back to our babies"
Delta Coo “I Love you Alpha Coo”

FF: Isn't life important?

PC: C.E.Ayr
Early morning the traffic is always horrible. Everyone is speeding by, everyone want to overtake and reach work in time.

Naisha, looked at her watch. She had a meeting at 10am, she had to have her breakfast & that fight with Harun was still on her mind.

The signal was green for vehicles, but still Naisha rushed to reach work in time, little did she know, this was her end of time when the bus rammed into her and that was the last she breathe.

Was the meeting more important than life?
Is work everything?

No, be safe, you are important for yourself & for the people who love you

I have two blogs,
One which I write personal experiences and is shared on Facebook, Twitter & all over the social media

The other blog is this one - I write on prompts mostly, & m prompt ideas generally come out of emotions & expeiences

All in all, My writing process, which I prefer to call "Writing Style"

Actually, I have made a flow chart of it

ABCW: Short Stories

PC: Teleread.com
I wanted to write a ten short horror stories. Imagine each scenario while reading them

1. My picture
I woke up with a start.
It was 2am. I saw my phone.
I saw a picture of mine clicked at 1.58am sleeping
And I am alone at home

2. Knock
I was at home & I heard a knock at 1am while I was reading.
I walked towards the bedroom door.
I heard the knock again, now louder.
I realized the knock wasn't from the door, but it was from the mirror in my room

3. Lost
We were walking through the jungle trek & got lost.
We saw a village woman walking through the jungle & asked her the way out.
She didn't speak but pointed towards the deep dark jungle.
We started to walk again. My friend turned to back to see this woman floating 3 feet up in the air.

4. Light
I am home after a tired day of 20 hour work. Its 2am already.
I open the door of my house and reach to the light switch.
But someone's had reaches there before me.
And I stay alone.

5. Dog
My pet Bruno keeps staring and at times barks at me.
I wonder why, until I realized that Bruno doesn't stare at me.
He stares at something behind me

6. Daughter
My daughter came to my bed last night & said she is cold
Her dress is all soiled. i told her she doesn't belong here
She is supposed to be sleeping in he coffin now.

7. Laugh
Its lovely to hear a baby's laughter at home.
But, not when it is 3am & you are alone at home

8. Wife
Its nice to see your wife cradling your baby.
Unless they have been declared dead an hour back

9. Guitar
I love the sound of the guitar, but not anymore.
Its playing from room number 13.
The girl staying there used to play the guitar before she hung herself the previous night

10. Window
Its cute to see that little boy staring inside through the window
The only problem is, I stay in the 10th floor

WODW: He makes me Smile

I live in India. here the concept arranged marriages are very common.

When my parents started looking for a groom for me, I was 21
Then all I looked was for hot looks - nothing else, his character, his family, his education nothing mattered

Then I grew up, at 24
All I wanted was, him to be rich - average looking, but rich - again education, family, nature nothing mattered

Then a grew up a bit more - I was 29
I realized, I want a man who can talk, who can communicate and who has a sense of humor.
I man who can keep me smiling all my life.
A man with good sense of humor , is popular, well loved and well read.
So, education part is taken care of, good education guarantee a good future.

I realized looks fade away, money can be earned, but a person who can talk, make you smile & care about that smile on your face is the person to be with, totally makes life worth living.
