The Taste of True Faith

A story where one kid’s sacrifice means another’s gain in this world. I hope, by reading this, some kind of balance is seen about the way the world works!

What is it mommy?“ Ivan came running from his hiding place after hearing his mother shouting his name for the seventh time. He had toyed with her enough. Now he badly needed a cuddle.

Look over there Ivan“ Darya pointed to a small crowd that had gathered in the market square as she gathered him in her arms and lifted him to show something beyond the serpentine queue.

A Duel with the Devil

This is my entry for 50 word story competition with theme as foundation.

This is my fictitious take on what could have been the seed that laid the very foundation of bitcoin. The moment someone chose the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. Massive thanks to reddit threads around this topic

“Another bailout? This system is broken completely!’.
Livid with rage, yet cautious as always.  ‘I need a mask! Can’t proceed with as myself! It’s no less than self-annihilation; like hooking on to devil himself…
A wry smile erupted. ‘A hook to satanism – I love anagrams!’
Satoshi Nakmoto was born…

The Forgotten Ones

50 word story contest with the keyword trial

The field looked deserted. How he longed to feel again, the warmth of a hug; the strength in a kiss!

He heard footsteps in distance. The trial was over.

It was nearly dawn. His country would wake up to a beautiful morning – traded with the blood of his young platoon.

Review: Wonder Woman (2017)

My review of the recently released Wonder Woman (2017)

In recent times we have seen quite a lot of action hero origin stories. With dramatic improvements in techniques relating to in production as well as post processing of movies, big production houses calling for a reboot of a franchise is not totally unreasonable.

2017 – Hope & Optimism

2016 was an eventful year. I look forward to 2017 in a positive way

Globally 2016 was a year ravaged with many calamities. The chaos that seemed to spread so quickly across the world was too hard for anyone to miss. When I look back, however, 2016 was NOT a miserable year. In many ways it was a good year for me.

Zootropolis – A New Change

The world is filled with foxes and sheep. Foxes – sly, cunning and methodical. Sheep – mob followers, grazers and forever abused. That’s the version the world concurs with. Maybe up until Disney’s Zootropolis (Zootopia).

Disney has changed its usual way of making films. Stereotypes seen in characters has withered; there is more subtlety to the plot line. Even someone as ignorant as me, can now observe hint of grey shade to the black and white story line. Strangely the imprints left behind in the mind of the audience are so blissfully colorful!

Moana (2016)

My review of the Disney movie Moana (2016)

Just as I am writing this, BBC News confirms that some parts of Hawaii are under three feet of snow. A study by NASA just confirms that “it is no longer a question whether the West Antarctic Ice sheet will melt, it is a question of when”! In case you wonder what all this has to do with a Disney princess movie, read on…

The Perfect Vision

Dedicated to humanity

I stood in front of a little wooden box
Mellow at first touch,
And coarse by the next
Curious, I slid open its crest.

It had two pairs of glasses
One rimmed with a golden frame
The other all rotten and rust
I decided, that try them I must.
