A published writer now :)


The above link is to my short story, titled ‘Skylight’, published a few days ago in Helter Skelter’s third volume of New Writing. This volume, unlike the previous two, is based on the theme ‘Strange Love’. Though this is the sixth short story I have written, it is my very first published story! I’d be thrilled to hear any feedback on the story from all you people who have been following my blog…

Btw, the illustration is by Pooja Satish, an aspiring artist from Bangalore! Though we’ve never met, she’s condensed my story into the perfect sketch! So, here’s me thanking Pooja too 🙂


Someone else

If writing is my Oxygen
Then there are too many days
That I don’t breathe

I wilt willingly
Knowing in full
My remedy

Is it that there is
Someone else within
Someone utterly
