Reading Time: 2 minutes

Married at nine, Subbu knew little about her seventeen-year-old bridegroom. Her mother had told her that he lived two villages away and that his father was a landlord with enough resources to support an entire village. Subbu would live a good life.

Crybaby Radhey – Flash Fiction Story

Artwork of a brown man crying
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Radhey was a crybaby. It was his signature characteristic.

From the time of his birth till the day of his death, Radhey’s face was a perpetual wetland. Salty streams had etched their course, puffing and wrinkling brown skin. But this was the least of Radhey’s concerns. His brain and heart were so busy competing for supremacy that his sense of self-awareness had dispersed.

There was no room for the three to scuffle.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Hari was born to parents named Joseph and Mary. He was only six when he started calling himself Harry. It seemed right to match the western ring in his parents’ names. Though that was all he wished to identify with. There was little else that enticed him.

Harry was a good-looking boy, fair skin, brown eyes, black hair that curled at their own fancy. It was to his advantage that he looked nothing like his parents. And for that he expressed his thanks, praying a little louder and harder every night before bed.

A Full Glass of Life – Flash Fiction Story

The cartoon of a girl face and scarf around her neck with strands of lights in the foreground
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Parvati had never seen misery her entire life.

Fifty-seven winters and her skin still glistened. Her hair was as black as charcoal. And her smile was a shapely window to a perfect set of teeth, white and neatly lined. She hadn’t been raised by an affluent family, nor did she marry into one. Her upbringing had been simple, her marital status single. The thought of bearing children had never crossed her mind.

Two old ladies sit side by side.

Both are hard of hearing.

One is Shama and the other is Masha. Sisters by birth, friends by choice. Eighty-eight and ninety-two, ripe ages with much decay yet plenty left to say.
