The Generation of the Millennials

As I think about “the generation of the millennials”, I ponder over the changes that they have gone through since the last, umm, Xennials.

For People Who Had To Leave

“My greatest loss, huh?”, she asked the interviewer. Her eyes were gleamy. One could not tell if she was in pain or deep regret. She seemed to walk down an unperturbed memory lane. She sat there.

A Dream That Came True

So often we have a dream so good we wish it were true. Some of us are lucky and for some, dreams just remain that. But, how cool would it be if it did? She used to see this guy every day.

The Unsatiated Hunger and a Hungry Soul

The rainwater poured on him as he tried to pick up left-over food and unused materials from the garbage dump.
