Nosegay – A Flash Fiction

A loner I was, and a peripatetic soul, never rested at one place, in search of something that my heart never conjured. From crowded streets to desolate places, I traversed all without much respite, for an unruly restlessness crowded my mind. And in search of nothingness, I became a vagabond. Then one day as the fragrance of some nosegay wrapped around the waist of a damsel drove me wild. And I followed her along, behind the boulders, across the mountains and in the bed of the ocean,  it was peace at last.

Nosegay – A Poem

An uncalled longing,
the gyrations of many submerged thoughts,
blooming of a few dormant smiles
and craving of a million defiant hearts,
all happens at once
when the blinding fragrance
of some incessant nosegay
erupts my long lost love

Air India Experience and The Movie – “October”

Because of the sociopolitical issues and subsequent flying restrictions over certain countries, United Airlines stopped all services to India. Ever since United started it Newark – New Delhi Non-stop, it was my obvious choice and I was at loss thinking which airlines to choose for my yesterday’s travel. I hate hops, and the best possible option left was Air India. Non-Stop New York to Delhi in straight 15 Hours.

I was skeptical, for there were so many bad reviews about Air India in the world wide web. But I was pleasantly surprised. The Staff was cordial, food decent, and the business class flat bed spacious and comfortable.

On my way to Delhi, I watched a couple of movies. And the one movie that stayed with me till this moment is “October”. An indifferent Hotel Management trainee, who was never happy one day found one of his colleague in a deep coma because of a freak accident.  The last word she said before meeting with her fate was his name. The girl was a mere acquaintance to him and the way he develops bonding with her while she was subconscious was absolutely mesmerizing. The girl eventually dies, but in the process changed the protagonist for good.

There is something I wanted more from the movie, and a tinge of restlessness still clouds my mind.

If Abstract movies are not for you, I will not recommend. But if you are into parallel cinemas, this is one movie you should definitely watch.

Glib

Do you ever think for a trice
before launching your thoughts
for when you say those golden words
I weave many dreams of possibilities
entwined in your emblem of trust
and burgeon forward
with faith up in my sleeves

But then you recede
retracting all said and unsaid verse
next time if you plan to arrive
keep your glib under a serious check
and allow me to survive

Aplomb – A Flash Fiction

The kids in her class were loud and mischievous, creating ruckus every moment of the day. As if the uprooting from her country was not enough. She missed her friends, school, and everything that reminded of her beautiful home town. Now caught in a delirious setup, she put a defiant shield on her smile, like armor and kept her interaction with her alien world to a minimum.

Few miscreants took offense of her silence and never missed a chance to tease her. And then one day they took it to the extreme. While climbing stairs she was deliberately pushed down. She tumbled and fell with bruises all over her body. But she didn’t let her aplomb fade away and got to her feet swiftly. Her football coach, who saw the episode, rushed to her and promised to take harsh action against the culprits, but to everyone’s surprise, she didn’t utter a word against her classmates. She put forth her aplomb face and mentioned it was an accident. That day she made many a friend and her new world after all was not strange anymore.
