Dear Grandpa,

Happy Birth anniversary! May your soul rest in peace. I'm sorry I couldn't learn to play violin. I'm learning to play keyboard instead. I'm sorry for not attending your phone call minutes before you passed away:( Old habits die hard. I do the same even now. I don't attend most phone calls. I'm being honest.. I was at a meeting when you called me up. My phone was lying elsewhere. I never thought you were on your last because you appeared to be recovering when I met you a day before you passed away. No use of apologising. I know it. Every time I think of you, I wonder what you would have told me had I attended your phone call that minute? Would you have asked me to take care of y...

Let your emotions just flow
Irrespective of what time it is
Or which place you are at
Let your heart rejoice
In doing what it feels right
But remember the saying
When you take a decision
Don't let your emotions vote
Everything else is fine
As long as you live and let live.

The first step towards healing yourself is to cut ties with all those who constantly and unnecessarily trouble your mind.

Day 12

The day has ended. Time to sleep. My tummy is full. Whether I'm happy or sad, I do full justice to my stomach. I eat well. God bless my appetite. Tomorrow is Sunday. Oh there's nothing to be happy about it. I have to clean my house. Five months more for Christmas! I just can't wait to decorate my Christmas tree again. The little things make my heart happy. I'm dreaming of a green Christmas! Not white:)

Day 12

I wish I could sleep a little longer. With my sleepy eyes I walked into kitchen and cooked something for breakfast. Shit! It tasted real BAD but I ate it. What else could I do? I was taught not to waste food. I'm done with washing all the dishes I had left in the sink. Time to get ready to leave to college. Oh I'm not inclined to go. It's so cold. I feel like cuddling up in bed and going back to sleep. Moreover my students will be back to college only on Monday. I don't like to go to work when my students aren't around. I get bored up. Anyway it's a new day. Happy Saturday!

His words have the capacity to heal...

Me: Oh I'm sad:(

Uncle: Where is that rope? I'm looking for it. Can't find it in my house.

Me: Which rope?

Uncle: The one people use to hang themselves when they're dejected.

Me: Hahahahahaha. This is too much.

Uncle: Why are you laughing?  I thought you were sad and you wanted to die.

Me: Oh did I say I want to die? I only told you that I'm sad.

Uncle: I see. So you don't want to die?

Me: No.

Uncle: That's the spirit. Are you still sad?

Me: I think I'm not.

Uncle: Life is too short, child. Enjoy it.

Me: How?

Uncle: Live every moment.

Me: How?

Uncle: Like the way you are living now. Though you're sad you keep hogging every half an hour, ...

Day 11

It's a new day. I am ready to face the challenges life throws at me today. I'm strong. Even if I'm not, I have to keep telling myself that. No other alternative. Good day.

Uncle: For God and heaven's sake don't keep so serious.

Me: You don't help me at all. You let me face it all alone.

Uncle: God helps those who help themselves.

Me: Don't aggravate me. I'm already pissed off.

Uncle: Haha All this is part of life. Forgive her. Let go.

Me: She cursed me.

Uncle: Take it as a blessing.

Me: No. I take it as a curse only.

Uncle: Chill. Yes I let you face it alone because I know you can handle it.

Me: I'm going off my head.

Uncle: You'll be fine.

Me: I hope so.

How would you feel when your own mother goes around talking shit about you just because you put your foot down and refused to marry the guy she wanted you to settle down with? How would you feel when your own mother curses you before her friends and relatives? How would you feel when people ask you "How could do this to your mother?" when it is actually your mother who is screwing your happiness day in and day out. It's hard to explain to people what a daughter goes through with a mother like mine. It's so easy for people to curse daughters who never take care of their mothers. I'm reminded of my ex boyfriend who once asked me.. "If you cannot love your own mother, how could you love me?" I w...

(Women!! You have to be aware of your rights. Nobody can compel you into doing anything that your heart doesn't permit. Don't give in)

Stranger: Have you any idea whose marriage proposal you have rejected?

Me: What do you mean? A BOY'S I guess. I can't call him a MAN because if he was manly, he would have approached me. Not my friend. All the circus he did to reach out to me was unnecessary.

Stranger: He's related to the Bishop. Your job could be in trouble because you are working for an organisation that is run by the priests. I hope you are aware of it.

Me: Are you threatening me? I never knew marriages occur this way too. I only knew of arranged and love marriages. Should I name this ...

Me: I had a weird dream last night.

Uncle: Hmm

Me: You were dying.

Uncle: haha. Last evening I asked you for a favour. We discussed life and death. That's why you dreamt of it. Forget it. Don't bother.

Me: But dreams have implications.

Uncle: Come on child. Don't act stupid. Forget it. I'm still alive.

Me: Oh yeah. You are very much alive.

Uncle: You must have been thinking of all that I spoke last evening before you went to bed. Hence the dream..

Me: No. I didn't.

Uncle: Okay. I'm going to die now.

Me: What am I going to do then?

Uncle: Cry over my dead body. What else would you do? Idiot that you are. Get ready and go to work.

Me: Okay.

Uncle: Discussing anything with you i...

The love and affection I receive from all the aunties I know is nothing less of a mother's love yet I crave for something I know I will never get. Before I go ahead and adopt a kid I have to think twice. If I miss out on anything that my child needs, I'll be making her feel the same way I just did.

Uncle: Girl.. I want you to do me a favour. Will you?

Me: Jesus! It's going to rain today. You're asking me for a favour? You.. you.. egoistic human!

Uncle: Hmm will you do it?

Me: Why not? You've been looking after me since years. I will. What is it? I'll do it right away.

Uncle: I don't want you to do it right away. It's something you have to do after I die.

Me: What? What are you talking? Are you feeling like you're going to die. Any such feelings?

Uncle: Who knows.. future is uncertain. I don't have such feelings. Yes. After I'm gone.. I want you to...

( He narrates the whole thing)

It's always nice to have a joker around:) especially when you have a heavy head.

Coworker: Angela...

Me: Hmm

Coworker: Shall I ask you something?

Me: Hmm

Coworker: You should not get angry..

Me: That means you're going to ask me a question that will provoke me.

Coworker: Not like that. I mean..

Me: Ask.

Coworker: Have you ever had a boyfriend?

Me: Yes.

Coworker: *silence*

Me:  I guess I answered your question. Why are you staring at me?

Coworker: No. I just asked. I hope you're not pissed off.

Me: No.

Coworker: Shall I ask you one more question?

Me: Hmm

Coworker: Why are you so lifeless? I mean you don't show any interest in life.

Me: at workplace I can only show interest...

I am thinking of asking my mother to put up a board in front of her house stating " My daughter does not want to get married. Please help". I'm really annoyed by her behaviour. Her behaviour is affecting my work life too. She has no idea what she is putting me through. I've had enough. I'm going off my head. Inspite of me telling her that I am not inclined to get married, she goes here and there.. asking my friends and foes to convince me. God dammit! Even love marriages are rarely successful these days. How does she think that I'll be happy if someone convinces to marry the guy she has chosen for me? A little bit of common sense goes a long way. If common sense was sold in the market, I woul...

Day 9

I just finished my household chores and I'm getting ready to leave to work. I'm praying that my mother doesn't do anything stupid today. She gets me embarrassed every alternate day. It must be giving her happiness. I don't know. She's done with requesting all the priests at my workplace to convince me into getting married to the Man of her choice. I'm anticipating her next move. She might reach out to the Bishop, then the Pope.. Of all the people in this world, Pope will have the time to read my mother's letter I assume. Tragedy of my life! What do I do with this lady who doesn't have the sense to think that she's making private matters public? When's she has already revealed all my fa...

I'm laughing my troubles off. What else can I do? I just ate a mixture of Jam and fish for dinner. Don't puke!!!! Yeah I didn't know what was on my plate. My mind was elsewhere. I mistook Jam for tomato sauce!!!! I couldn't throw it off. I don't waste food. I stuffed it down my throat somehow.

I'm off to bed. I'm missing my ex boyfriends a lot. Some of those buggers had cursed me. They said.. " You'll never find a better guy. Don't dump me". Maybe that is why my mother is compelling me to marry someone who I know nothing about. Haha:) Life is a bitch. So am I. Oh I'm crying myself to bed tonight. What is all this shit.. man? I'm always keep to myself but people don't let me live in pe...

A woman is not a vegetable sold in the market that you can buy up with your money. It's high time the guys who are rolling in wealth understood this. Just because you have the money to look after her, doesn't mean she has to come crawling to you. Independent women can look after themselves. They don't need your money. They need your care, your loyalty, your time and your moral support to help them realise their full potential.

Mr. Asshole,

I don't know who you are. If my mother knows you, that's her problem. Not mine. Come what may I will NEVER marry you. You could be the only son to your parents. You could be wealthy. You could be influential. I bloody well don't care. How dare you seek my mother's help to get me? Isn't that enough to prove that you are not MAN enough. My mother is gullible. I know it. Probably your family knows it too. That is why you approached her. You even approached the priest to ask him to convince me into accepting this proposal? Why don't you approach the Bishop too? Not ashamed? Why will you be? If you were man enough, you have approached me and asked me if I was interested in being frie...

Mother,

It's over between us. It's over. I least expected you would such a thing. You've been sending marriage proposals through my friends and I was not even aware of it till the priest revealed it to me today. And my friends.. they're my enemies. Not friends. They hid this matter from me. Cheaters! How could you do this to me? I'm independent. I'm not a burden you should think of getting rid of. I'm earning. I'm not my feet. I don't trouble you. Who are you to force me to get married? Why did you go and ask the priest to convince me to get married? I hate you. I will never marry the guy you choose. I too will see what you will do. Why should I marry that asshole? Ask him to go find some ot...

My everyday battles....

4:30 pm

I was damn tired after work. My phone rang. A stranger wanted to meet me. I wanted to ask him to duck off but I was not in a position to do so because he was a PRIEST. I had to respect him.I did ask him.. " What's the matter.. Father? Is it professional or personal?" He reluctantly replied.. " I know you don't know who I am. I know your apprehensions. I don't even know how to put it across.. the matter is personal. Will you meet me?" So.. it was a kinda professional way of getting me to discuss a personal matter.

( I reached the place where I was supposed to meet him. Trying to identify him took me some time because I had never met him earlier. Moreover, a...

Day 8

Isn't it nice to be up early and cook something nice for breakfast? God knows how I got up at 6 am today. I fried an omelette for myself. It was very tasty. I have to say that because I fried it:) haha. I'm done with my breakfast. An apple, a tumbler of milk and an omelette. Tummy is full. The day has started on a good note. I am ready to go to work.

Happy Tuesday everyone. God bless.

All that is left of her are memories bitter-sweet. I remember playing with her as a little kid. I remember all the stories she would narrate to put me to sleep. Albeit such moments were very rare, they are etched in my mind and will remain there forever. The bitter ones plunge me deep in a sea of grief. However, my prayers for her well being help me ease my pain to a great extent.

Writing prompt

It's very much possible to feel negative emotions like jealousy and hatred. That's what distinguishes us from the supreme being or God. Feeling that way is natural. Getting over it takes a little wisdom. A little wisdom to distinguish between good and evil. A little wisdom to know what's good for your mental health. It's easier said than done but not impossible.

Stranger: * playing songs on his phone as loud as duck*

Me: * waiting when he'll realise there are other commuters in the train as well*

Stranger: * begins to sing.. sorry bray"

Me (thinking) * Oh God! I can't sleep. Why can't someone ask him to switch that phone off and let others sleep? Why will anyone do it? I must do it myself*

Me: Hello.. who's seated in no. 53? Can you hear me?

Stranger: Yeah I can hear you. What's it?

Me: I can't sleep. Will you please plug your ear phones and listen to anything you want to? It's disturbing me.

Stranger: *laughs*
