A Rainy Afternoon


Time…and I know for a fact, for a large percentage of you, just like me, braved and dragged ourselves even though we may have through a multitude of decades, when I look back today, I still feel, I somewhere belonged to a different era, much before the darned decades, almost of an ancient and golden period.

ଶୁଭେନ୍ଦୁ ମହାନ୍ତି

ମୁଖା ଏପଟେ ଓ ସେପଟେ

ଦୁଇଟି ବିପରୀତ ପୃଥିବୀ

ଦୁଇଟି ଅସଂଭବ କାମନା,

ଦୁଇଟି ଅସଂଲଗ୍ନ ଅନୁଭୂତି !


ଏପଟେ କର୍ଦ୍ଦମାକ୍ତ ଯୋଡିଏ ଆଖି

ଅନେକ ପ୍ରଶ୍ନ ର ଅମା କୁହେଳିକା

ଆଉ ଭାବହୀନ ଗୋଟେ ହୃଦୟ !


ସେପଟେ କିନ୍ତୁ

ଚେନାଏ ଗୋଲାପି ସ୍ବପ୍ନ

ଅନେକ ଉତ୍ତର

ଅଖୋଜା, ଅଲୋଡା


ଆନ୍ତରିକତା ରେ ଭିଜା ଗୋଟେ ଆଶ୍ରୟ !

How far really, how far could it be?

Beyond the frothy waves, beyond the sea,

the island of dreams, a soothing lullaby

I sing to her each night, as she goes to sleep !

Zoo : Fantastic Beasts and where to find them!


This story of mine is written as part of  the A2Z Challenge 2016 , today’s letter being “Z”. This brings us to the end of the April 2016 A 2 Z Challenge, a life-changing experience that was. Nearly, almost, oh yes, certainly it was. Thanks to Damayanti Biswas, through whom I enrolled in this beautiful journey and met so many wonderful bloggers and readers and discovered a common truth … we can be what we want to be !

Thank you each and everyone of you who are reading this or have read my blog in the past, thanks to you all who stood by me through the thickest of plots and the thinnest of torn paper which appeared with equal frequency on my blog, and all of you who have participated in this challenge.

My immediate plan is to collect the short stories I have written  in this challenge , plus write a few more and then if all goes well, publish them as an eBook , which I sincerely hope will find a tiny little place on your hard drives and hearts ! Wish me luck ! Thank you Universe ! Keep sending me positive energies !

What a journey ! As it goes, its the journey that matters, and I sincerely hope, this journey we all embarked upon a month ago, never ends.

For, not everything that starts has to end.

Keep writing fellow writers and lets help each other grow ! 

Thank you !!!


It all seems like yesterday.

“Hello? Just saw your message. What happened ? Are you okay?”

“Hi, mmm..no nothing.”



“What do you mean nothing?”

“Just nothing, don’t bother. Nothing happened” Read More
