About Her

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!

Innocence [55Fiction #10]




How fast they grow up, not a second to waste, not a second to breathe. Those tiny palms, now filled with henna, those tousled hair, now puffed up with accessories, those muddy toes, now modestly polished.

Life passes us by in a jiffy. Halt for a moment today, and caress the scent of their innocence.

  6. Papa often says, "I never realized how fast you were growing, though 1 or 21 you'll always be 22 years younger"
