“Well, what’s the answer?”  Not a single breathing sound could be heard from all the fourth graders as Mr Hill darted a piercing stare. 
Adem gazed out of the classroom window.  The misty spring hypnotised him into a dreamy state.  His heart suffered sudden sharp thrust by zillion daggers at the mere thought of not being [...]

This story is dedicated to my grandfather who spent 30 years in the service of the Indian Army

“Done yet?”  Her mother inquired as she handed Clea her cup of [...]

The sky is limitless. It stretches on forever, reaching into the depths of the universe where no man has ever tread. Here on Molokai, one of the eight main Hawaiian Islands, I can watch the sky change its moods. Right now, the sky looks peaceful; the fluffy white clouds look stunning against the [...]

The beat of my heart 
Molten sunlight. 
She rules me. 
One day, long ago, I was born into Water. 
She is sometimes a terrible beast. Some days, she lashes out until I am floundering in her arms. But, there is nothing I can do to protect myself. Who am I to dictate to her grandness?  I am just a [...]

Tell me of what lurks
In the depths of your mind
Have your lips form
Those syllables and have them
Whisper of new beginnings, new truths.

Knock, knock, knock, knock.
Mommy, please answer me.
Knock, knock, knock.
Mommy, please answer.
Knock, knock.
Mommy, please.
Knock.
Mommy.
I go to her door every morning of every day. She never answers, not anymore. Not if I’m hungry, not if I’m screaming, not even if the house was on fire. I don’t think she [...]
