‚ÄčTrapped #short story

Women have power of saraswati, durga and laxmi if they want they can make their house heaven lest they can even make it hell… yet we are accused of trapping men in the nutshell. Don’t you think it’s the other way round?

“You are a Women, you will never understand all this and I am a man a successful person because of whom you exist! This is how the society works my dear, so from the next time you better think twice before you ask” he said with so much venom that her whole body shuddered.

“You know our financial plight,  I just want to help you. I am also as qualified as you are so if I want to do job and help my family out it isn’t a crime right? ” she dared to say that although from inside she was shaking terribly of the repercussion. She is not bold infact she is shy but it is said sometimes even the most fragile person has to become strong for the betterment of the family.

“Hahahaa, if ever this thing cross your mind again, then don’t blame of what happens afterthat!” With this he was gone.

This was a routine in their house but what he did was correct? Before marriage he promised to take care of her and give her the freedom of taking her own decisions but after marriage everything changed… His dreams became a part of her dreams and slowly his every dream dominated her’s. Women usually lost their identity to build somebody else’s career, they go through every change so that they can build a secure future for her loved ones… This is what women are they are shy from outside but are capable of making house a HOME….

 

Dear Zindagi (Chapter 1)

Voicing your own thoughts to your own conscious will do wonders, just try it once..

“Life is so unfair sometimes you know” Ciara said to her conscience the moment she reached that one place where she can voice out all her worries.

“It never promised to be fair” retorted her inner voice.

“True but sometimes why things take drastic changes? Why can’t everything be as we want it to be” Ciara asked, her brows furrowed.

“If everything goes as we planned then what will be the fun of living life? At every juncture we will know what is store for us! There will be no mystery, no fun, no excitement. It will be like an open book” said her conscience.

“Yeah you are right, I don’t know why I even asked you all this” Ciara said realizing how stupid her questions were.

“Don’t insult yourself ever! If you will insult yourself then who will respect you and your questions weren’t stupid, you just voiced out what you wanted to which many people out there don’t have guts to” said her inner voice in a authoritative manner making her shiver.

“I am always here for you, even if the whole world is against you, I will still be there to solve all your problems. What you have to do is talk to me and answers will come from within you” said her conscience before she could say anything and then like a stroke of wind she was gone, leaving Ciara all alone yet she knew one thing she is not alone, may be physically she is but not mentally or emotionally.

With this thought she made her way towards her home but with a smile on her face…

To Be Continued…

 

One Day…

Dream that we all want to convert into reality…

One Day…

One day I will be gone,
You will long for me,
You will miss me,
You will feel sorry for all the things that you had put me through,
But I will be gone out of your reach,
You will never be able to find me,
I will be happy in my la la land,
And you will be weeping silently,
Thinking about me,

My smile will bring tears in your eyes,
I will be leading a wonderful life all alone where I will be loved,
Where I can lead a peaceful life with my subconscious…..
One day!

DREAMSCAPE

Why are we so away from reality?

Why in our dreamscape we are so happy?

The simple answer is in our dreams we don’t judge,

We don’t expect,

Everything is so damn perfect there,

There is no kind of ambiguity there,

We smile without counting the flaws,

We experience what we want in our future,

All those things that we admire suddenly seem so close to us,

Even the moon looks unblemished,

Stars appear big and they twinkle with great amount of zest,

Only because it’s not real, we are living all these things in our dreamscape,

It is the bitter truth of our lives which is better to be accepted that being neglected…
