• Hi Ana,
    Got a little late this time, my apologies. But this was not the usual kind of fiction you write. I love it when you explore emotions like this. It was more of a literary fiction and less of a genre fiction. You know, you have in you to become a fine filmmaker. No kidding. I like how you have shown M and her mother’s characteristics. The…[Read more]

  • Hi Zefira,
    Thank you for your lovely comments and the read! I am glad that the characters and the emotions that move them moved you as well. Yes, Tahir doesn’t seem like an ideal husband, and he isn’t. I am glad that Armaan managed to grab your attention. Here’s hoping to hear from you again. Be safe.

  • Hi Zefira,
    Wow! You handled such a sensitive topic with such ease. My heart really went out to your protagonist, Liv. Her struggles with motherhood, her abusive husband and them the sudden twist of Fate – truth be told, I think it was cathartic for her to hear the news about her husband’s death. Anyone in her shoes would and I was so happy for h…[Read more]

  • Hi Peggy,
    Please accept my apologies for such a delayed read. But I was hooked from the beginning. This is shaping up to be a fine dystopian tale. Nola obviously stands out as a lead character. Her expressions, emotions and all her thoughts have been captured so immaculately through your words…I could almost visualise her. Same for Aram. This…[Read more]

  • Hi Sudha,
    Firstly, please accept my apology for such a delayed read. I am dealing with a lot now, took a brief break and just got back. This is such an interesting story. I have been noticing that the earlier scientific tinge that one could detect in your stories is getting replaced gradually with a more emotional essence. It can be felt in your…[Read more]

  • Hi Fizza,
    Thank you for your lovely comments and the read! I am so thrilled you liked the emotions and the characters. Be safe.

  • Hi Fizza,
    Glad to hear from you! Thank you for your lov

  • Hi Rachel,
    Thank you for dropping by and your awesome comments! They always put a smile on my face. 😊 I am thrilled that this part kept you engaged and would love to know what you think of the earlier part. Will Tahir be ok? What will Lisa do? Hoping to clarify that in the next part. Be safe.

  • Hi Sudha,
    It’s always a pleasure to hear from you! Thank you for your lovely comments and the read! Yes, this part was dedicated to Lisa and Tahir. Lisa is like a foil to Tahir. She is steady, even though she’s not in a good place now. Whereas Tahir is unpredictable, ambitious. Does he really care for her? Well…lety hope I can highlight that in…[Read more]

  • Hi Peggy,
    I was looking forward to hear from you. Thank you for the read and your encouraging comments! I am glad that you like the internal conflict I sketched up between Lisa and Tahir. Even though this is Armaan and Rishi’s story (as in, they are my leads), there will be important characters who drive the plot forward. You have provided a…[Read more]

  • Hi Maria,
    Thank you for your wonderful comments and the read! I am so happy to know that this part grabbed your attention and you could relate to the situation of the characters. Hoping to hear from you again next time. Be safe.

  • Hi Charles,
    Do glad that you dropped in and thank you for the lovely comments! I am thrilled that you find the narrative spontaneous so far. I hope to keep the rhythm going. Hoping to hear from you again next time. Be safe.

  • Hi Kim,
    So happy to hear from you! Yes, Armaan is the gay guy and he was at the wedding. I am thrilled to know that you liked this part so much. It’s kind of a plot-twister chapter so I am really happy that it lived up to your expectations. Thanks for the fedback on the ‘tears’ sentence. I wrote this part in a jiffy and I was anticipating missed…[Read more]

  • Hi Patty,
    This was one heck of a fun story! It made me recall a friend’s misadventure when she had gone for an office project to Canada and there, she wanted to travel a city in her own, with the help of gps. She got lost and she started weeping. She went back to one of the restaurants where she had eaten. It was run by two Asian women and…[Read more]

  • Hi Charles,
    This was such an endearing story! In a strange way, it reminded me of the kids in To Kill a Mockingbird. I loved the humour, you nail it every time. We tend to get attached to certain things in life, even though they don’t mean much to others or even us at times. This was so relatable and yet the wit was on spot. Great comic timing!…[Read more]

  • Hi Maria,
    I am hooked, I admit. Your sci-fi adventure is getting really interesting. A lot has been brought to light with this installment. Why Andy was chosen and all the backstory ties the tale together. I hope though that his team on Earth are not planning something nefarious behind his back. Secret missions often end up in multiple…[Read more]

  • Hi Fizza,
    Reading one of your stories after a long time. Your stories move me in ways I cannot express in words. This one was no different. I loved how you show a bitter ignorant man’s transformation. His struggle with not just those related to him, but with himself, with Death. A great story! Thank you for sharing!

  • Hi Seyi,
    Hope you doing well? New York’s definitely inspired you and your writing has got a new chutzpah. Pardon me if I got it wrong but this is a vampire saga, right? And the narrator seems to be a hunter? Or a vampire. I am a little confused about that part. Actually, the beauty of your writing is that your descriptions often daze me. They are…[Read more]

  • Hi Kim,
    That’s so poignant and you have delved so deep into the realm of human emotions this time. How we think that time is sealed in the moment that we are living in at present, only to be dislocated and left disillusioned. I loved how you show Joan’s journey, her flashbacks and then the reunion. Sad, but poetic and deep, your writing is…[Read more]

  • Hi Rachel,
    This was one of your best stories to date. You gave a synesthesia a new meaning altogether. I loved how you described the characters and their body language to establish their characteristics. I loved the handshake description where you describe the principal to be this neutral character. Also how you the describe numbers – you a…[Read more]
