A Hiatus and A Twist!

After a pause I am back with my coffee… a few unavoidable circumstances forced the unwanted hiatus. What did I do in this period?  Um… a lot, which had nothing to do with my writing or my much beloved baby; CoffeeBeans.

While could not covert my thoughts into words and tap the keys, I was fortunate enough to read a few books, watched movies, both old and new ones, discovered a few new dishes, caught up with friends (on phone), all the while waiting for this recess to get over. But the best that I got from this period was meeting my schoolmate after ages. Meeting ST was most wonderful experience of this week. Though I wish the time didn't flew the way it did. *sad face*

One of the new dishes which I discovered had… *veggies and vegans this might stink a bit, ergo, skip this part* … eggs and grounded channa daal mixed together ... (will share the recipe someday, after I experiment it myself). It was then turned into a fab looking curry, which made me scream, “Mom I wanna make it”. And my mission date is tomorrow.

Whenever I am into such situation when I am restrained to be non-productive, I go back to Harry Potter series… no not read them but watch them in motion. And last week was not an exception, Harry Potter did its fair share of keeping me company.

Agatha Christie and O Henry along with other authors took me to their own literary world, with their immaculate story telling, as they often do.

Meanwhile I also happened to win the golden Trophy (check out the side bar) for my shayaries by Bushra, a talented poetess herself. *smiles broadly*

Being with these favorites made my week, however, I missed my words immensely. My drafts are lying in their spaces quietly which I plan to resurrect with time.

That, my dear, was my hiatus in a nutshell. Yes, I know I did not furnish with the earlier mentioned “unavoidable circumstances”... but tell you what; I leave it up to you. And here comes the Twist; cook your own tale… send me to a dragon killing spree or make me a vampire chasing an Ichhadhari Nag…its your story… spice it up… temper it… and share it. Three shiny trophies await the top three. *winks*

 

You may submit your creativity by 15th of Aug ... It can be a 55 fiction, a few lines...a poem.. anything. Email it to me or post it on your blog and link me back...or simply post it here.

  7. Nobody knows the hidden secret that Namrota is responsible for the biggest reunion of the decade. It was only after Namrota insisted, Shahrukh khan agreed to hug Salmaan Khan at the Iftaar party Last week. Her Uns Ke Kuchh Labz spilled love everywhere..infact way too much love ;)

  15. To be or not to be, is what everyone thinks. But we rarely realize that we get to choose because we have been given the chance. If you ever see, life is not becoming as u wanted to be, how do you survive, as u suppose to be? Struggle for existance, we try to keep it persistant, yet sometimes you can't oppose, as you know it will hurt your own. So what you do, when nothing is you. Going in a path, who knows where it takes you. Fight with one, fight with two, fight with everyone just to be you? So what you do when nothing is you...what you do when nothing is you ?
