The Colors of Light

Glow the lights,
Of colors all bright,
Radiance and festive,
Luminescence so captive,
Celebrations around,
Happy hearts found,
Joyfulness of rights,
Happy Festival of Lights!


* Happy Deepavali * Diwali – Homely, Sweetly, Lightly, Colofully

The Mirror Upside Down

This story is written for Mondays Finish the Story Challenge – 06 April 2015.

Task: For the given image and starting line, complete the story in 100-150 words.


Once upon a time in a land far, far away people had gathered to fix colors to the world to make it look beautiful. It was gathering of two teams.

Team ‘sunrise’ exclaimed; let land be red representing love, let air go blue spreading calmness and let sky show green keeping the nature lively.

Team ‘sunset’ exclaimed; Let sky go red spreading love, let air go blue spreading calmness and let land go green making a better place to live.


Both the arguments had equal weights and investigating to all, God finally said, “Every sunrise has a sunset and hence I declare, beauty lies beneath the eyes” and disappeared.

Three Perfect Shots – Holi

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Three Perfect Shots.”

Take a subject you’re familiar with and imagine it as three photos in a sequence. Tackle the subject by describing those three shots.


Given the prompt, the first thing that came in my mind was Holi celebrations. Holi, in India,  is a spring festival also known as the festival of colors or the festival of love. Best part being i had three perfect Holi celebrations so far and its still very colorful right in front of my eyes.

Perfect Number One

Location: Bangalore
Year: 2009
The celebration was with my M. Tech friends. There could have not been a better day! The moments are still so lively and fresh in mind and heart.

Perfect Number Two

Location: Pune
Year: 2010
The celebration was during internship period at Pune. There was rain dance and DJ, the whole day. This is the best one of life time!

Perfect Number Three

Location: Hubli
Year: 2014
The celebration was with colleagues, fellow professors. Though the celebrations in between 2010-2014 were good, this was the last one we had as a group. We all moved to different cities in few weeks. This one is special. Very special.
