‘Title the Story’ Challenge!

Here is a short story which I penned down for Sunday Photo Fiction Challenge (Write a short story for the image provided).  It’s their 100th week so I wanted to add some fun to my post as well!
I have the story and its super short. Read and comment with a suitable title! I have kept it as interesting I could.



It was Valentine’s day of 2015 and the calm waters was staring at the smart light house. The light house winked and said, “My Lady, My dear waters, do you have anything to say?”.
The calm waters replied, “My Lord, I was thinking whose love is more”

Light House was perplexed and said, let’s do it. “Prove yourself My Lady and I will too.”

The calm waters gushed with force and covered the entire light house and gave a strong hug. Light house was covered with waters love. It gave a feeling of fortification.

It was then light house turn. It played with lights and it gave the feeling of adding beauty to waters. The waves with play of lights were looking elegant. Waters felt the warmth and the feeling of newly wedded bride.

Waters asked, “My Lord, how do we decide?”

Light house answered, “My Lady, let the reader decide. If the reader titles the post with your name ‘Waters’ in it you have proved it. If the reader titles the post with my name ‘Light House’ I have made it!”

Kindly provide a title as comment!

Sliced Bread Demands An Answer

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Sliced Bread.”

Most of us have heard the saying, “That’s the best thing since sliced bread!” What do you think is actually the best thing since sliced bread?

As I see and understand, the best thing since the slice bread is the ability to question “What do you think is actually the best thing since sliced bread?”. I know I have not made my deliberation clear yet, well, here it goes:
What did the seven wonders of the world give us? The ability to recognize, appreciate and refer to the eighth wonder in our daily lives. Technically, there is no one but many eighth wonder all around the world. We all have one.

Now similarly, since the slice bread, the best thing is the ability to ask the question, “What is the best thing since sliced bread?” Naturally, each one of us have an answer of our own. What is my answer? The question itself!

The Childhood Transporter

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “The Transporter.”

Tell us about a sensation — a taste, a smell, a piece of music — that transports you back to childhood.


The multi-colored peppermints,

Where are they gone without a hint?

The smell of mud at rainy day,

What a pleasure, must i say!

Soothing favorite Airtel ringtone,

Always ringing on my phone!

Alas, there i see my childhood,

Bringing alive thoughts for food.

The Depth of Fool’s Lake


This story is written for Mondays Finish the Story Challenge. The task is to write a story within 100 to 150 words considering the photo given and beginning with ” Dropping her line into Fool’s Lake, she patiently waited for something to bite “. 


Dropping her line into Fool’s Lake, she patiently waited for something to bite. The wait ended in no time as she had caught something big. She could feel the heaviness in her hands. She slowly lifted it up curious to know what she had hunted! Well, it was haunting! She saw a fool attached to the other end. She started laughing at herself. What more can she expect from a fool’s lake?

The hook had caught a mirror. What she could see was her face in the mirror. She suddenly realized all the pains in her life were only because she opted to see them. So what if the guy she trusted turned a bad hero? She realized life is a mirror where you see what you opt to see. That incident had thought her a quick lesson for life.

She took the mirror to market, sold it and purchased a fish and happily had her tummy treated. After all, life is all about making the best from what we have got!

The (Un)Friendly Time

This story is written for indiSpire, story writing challenge for 51st edition.

The challenge is:

“The Dindispirearkest Hour of the Night Is Just before the Dawn”, Write an original story based on this statement. #TheNight

Aakash was un-hurriedly waking up from his bed. He felt clueless on where he was and gradually realized he was in his own room. His final year of masters was literally killing him with too many submissions, assignments and presentations. As he saw the clock ticking 09.05, he was literally horrified. What he remembered was he was too much tired with many works and wanted to take a quick nap. His eyes were almost dying out of tiredness. It was 06.00 in the evening and he had decided to take a quick nap for one hour and initiate working on his presentation immediately.

He had a presentation to make at 10.30. It was his final project presentation. He had worked day and night to accomplish significant results. Now he was terrified about his effort going unrecognized as he had not worked on how to present it. He was enraged on himself and was cursing himself for planning to take a quick nap.

Just then, his mother entered the room and said, “Aakash, dinner is ready. Wash you face and come quickly!”

Aakash felt like heaven. The worry vanished in a thunderstorm speed.  He was so much tired that he literally thought it was 9.05am while it was still 9.05pm. He contentedly got up, had dinner and started working on his presentation.

Bad Answer for a Worse Question?

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Morton’s Fork.”

If you had to choose between being able to write a blog (but not read others’) and being able to read others’ blogs (but not write your own), which would you pick? Why?

Morton’s Fork is a logical dilemma in which people are faced with two equally bad options. (Ref: http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-mortons-fork.htm)

mouth shut

Well, let me think out loud. At first I wanted to find the worse among-st the bad and pick my option. Then i thought what would an optimist do? Bingo!

If i pick to write my blog, i would ask my readers put their posts as comments in my blog so that i could read them!

If i pick to read others blog, i would post my thoughts as comments on others blog so that others could read them!

Still, i need to pick one. So, just because i need to, i would go for option one!
