It was an essay which was meant to fetch me 25 marks in the paper, but it ended up changing my entire life, actually, ended up changing my dad’s life more than mine. I’ll explain how at the end of this post. Here is how the essay went – We all wish for something or the other at some point of time in life. As a kid we wish for a chocolate or a fancy toy. As we grow older, our demands increase and keep changing. As they say desires are endless, don’t they? Well I don’t know what you would wish for, but here are my … Read entire article »

The breeze was blowing her hair in all directions and her eyes were staring at the sea searching for answers – answers now hidden in the depths of time.

I wish I could just kiss those … Read entire article »
