Guest Author : Dhiraj Chawla ( A friend from IIIT-H)

I was standing on the balcony of my house. I could see, from a distance,  a huge wave of about 200 feet coming towards me, engulfing everything on its way. I knew my time had come as I could see the destruction of the world with my own eyes.

Suddenly I heard the alarm ring and I got up, just to see myself in my bed sleeping. I was relieved  to find out that it was just a scary dream…. :). I got up from my bed, and as I was about to leave my room, I happened to have a glance at the calender. It was December 23rd, 2012…, was it a dream?


A Policeman

A policeman entered our apartment and headed towards our home. The women in the building started gossiping and men started looking with suspicion.

I could hear the discussions going on outside.

I opened the gate, went to my neighbor and asked, “Uncle, can I have your signature on my  police verification form for passport purpose? “

Her Smile

“Honey, do you remember our last picnic with my office friends?”

She was just smiling.

“And do you remember how terrible food I cooked for the first time? ”

She was still smiling.

“Can you please stop smiling and talk to me ? “,  he almost yelled with frustration.

She kept smiling in the photograph on the wall.
