Beyond 24 – Novel



Indian Bloggers

Time!

beyond-24-lr

Time is hideous, rigid and always on time. From time travel machine to fast forward future, time has been visualized in varying dimensions. The exquisiteness of time is that it always gives a new perspective to investigate and inspire.

Beyond 24 is a love story where the hours of time are bound to love. Time arranges meet of two people, everyday increased by an hour. The question is what happens on the 25th day!

It is a quick read (Like 30 minutes) and I assure that the curiosity will keep on. It’s also a FREE download!

It’s available here:

Beyond 24

Let me know if you give a read! Yayy!

Sleep, is Just Not Sleep



Indian Bloggers

sleep-icon

Enjoyable flashes,
The outline of contentment,
Gushes around,
Sleep, is just not sleep!

Some unwanted howls,
Worry of its kind,
Plays peek a boo,
Sleep, is just not sleep!

The daily on goings,
The bumpy routines,
Rests along,
Sleep, is just not sleep!

Life is to learn,
Sleep, has only it,
Life has to learn,
Sleep, is just the sleep!

The matured mind,
The work tired body,
Calls it as,
Sleep and just the sleep!

“They aren’t real”

“It’s mostly an artificial life”

Said the pink flower to the tiny red ones pointing towards the passer by human beings!

 

Goalsssssshhh!


This Limerick is written for Limerick Challenge Week 50: Goal. The Challenge is to write a limerick on ‘Goal’. As said in the challenge: write a limerick about your goals, it may be a short term goal or a long term goal, write it in any way you like so long as it talks about your goals!

goal

Some are low, some are high,
Some are there, don’t know why,
Reality slaps,
Struggling laps,
It’s not easy, to learn to fly!

An Evening with Olive Ridley Turtles



Indian Bloggers

It was after a family function gathering, we all cousins decided to head to the beach (quite nearby, around 2kms from my cousins home) and spend some time there. It is the beach which carries a lot of our childhood memories. Like expected it was clean and calm with not many people around. Almost after an hour of water walk and play we all decided to head back home and saw a crowd gathered at the far end. There was something in a red bucket which everyone were peeking at. We got curious and rushed there to find many and lots of baby turtle hatchlings (There were 80+ as we got the count from authorities).

Here is the story!
The turtles come and lay eggs. The forest department authorities after knowing and finding the eggs construct secured boundaries and keep the eggs under the sand with a sign board indicating the date of hatch. When they hatch and come out of the sand, they are all released to water the same day. We got a chance to hold them, take some pictures and see them happily joining the waters.

We also learnt some interesting facts about them:

  • Generally one in ten survives when they get into water
  • They have a small food sack carried by them which supplies them food for next two days and after that they need to hunt for food.
  • They have an excellent built in GPS with them and very accurate with locations they visit in their life time.

Well, it could not have been a better evening! Here is one of the video I captured:

Water? Whoops!



Indian Bloggers

This Limerick is written for Limerick Challenge Week 49: Satire. The challenge is to write a limerick that mocks, ridicules or pokes fun at something. It can be anything so long as the theme of the limerick is satire.

My limerick theme: Anything of too much is not good. Just like the flood bringing all the waters, challenging for the drinking water.

rain

Nature’s trek, friends and me,
Water, water, endless we see,
Heavy rains,
No complains,
And in pants we pee!


Gist: There is so much water around, so lot of water around, but still no place to pee!
