About Her

My photo
India
Little Moments Of Bliss is a silhouette of a feeling that resides in my heart. A software engineer by degree, a writer at heart, and a teacher by profession, I'm all that I never thought I would be. Pretty pictures,a poem that blatantly refuses to rhyme, a text from a deranged friend, a sudden gesture of love, its these little things in life, that matter and sprinkle bliss. Grace the couch and share a cuppa!

The Street Vendor [55Fiction #7]


He knew it would be a beautiful day since the moment his first customer said Thank You to him. Never had a person spoken to him with such kindness. Although he couldn’t sell as many sweet-potatoes as he did everyday, content resided in him.


Those two little words filled the void of respect inside him.

  4. I've seen the faces of vendors and rikshaw-walla's to whom I keep saying thank you. Every time I see them, their eyes sparkle with a smile on face. They recognize me from a distance and few of them wave hands too :)

  17. I still remember how such people are taken aback when you say 'Thank you' I guess to make someone's day , makes your own day.
