Confused in Love#Flash Fiction(FFfAW)


Everyone who sees that photo tells her “What a caring husband!”

Those words prick her heart and she conceals her disappointment behind her smile.That photo reminds her of a bitter memory which leaves her confused.

It was their wedding anniversary. She wanted to surprise him with a romantic candle light dinner.

Just when she was getting ready for the fantastic evening ahead, he called her and told that they were going to a party at his friend’s place. Alas, she was let down again! For him, spending time with friends was more important than celebrating special events with the family. She knew that very well but every time she hopes he will change and that never happened.

Does it mean he doesn’t care for her? No. He always tries his best to keep her safe and secure. That’s why he noticed something amiss in her stilettos and helped her.

“He is a caring person but..”, she sighs sadly.

“Mom! What a peaceful place! A writing desk at the window with a wonderful view of the stream, and the mountains! Isn’t this place perfect to finish your novel?”

“Emily, the house is perfect. But I couldn’t work on my novel. See that brick house across us.  Whenever I sit at my desk, the lady in that house notices me and waves at me. Immediately she comes home, starts chattering and doesn’t leave for a couple of hours. I don’t understand how to avoid her. Probably I should pull down the blinds before I start writing!”

“Why are all these people chatting and not appreciating the magnificent structure in front of them?

May be they are all locals and have visited this place several times before!

“On this last evening of my London tour, I planned on relishing the beauty of St.Paul’s cathedral sitting here and sipping cold British Beer but all the chairs are taken and no one is planning to leave!”

American Born Confused Indian#Limerick


To wear a long skirt that stays or to flaunt a mini skirt that sways

To eat homemade rice or to get restaurant takeaways

To speak in English or to falter in mother tongue

Unable to decide, between two cultures, she hung

This ‘American Born Confused Desi’ is bewildered always.
