The Godfather: An Excerpt

“For the second time he saw Michael Corleone’s face freeze into a mask that resembled uncannily the Don’s. “Tom, don’t let anybody kid you. It’s all personal, every bit of business. Every piece of shit every man has to eat every day of his life is personal. They call it business. OK. But it’s personal... Continue Reading →

#Quoted: Good story ideas seem to come from…

Let's get one thing clear right now, shall we? There is no Idea Dump, no Story Central, no Island of the Buried Bestsellers; good story ideas seem to come quite literally from nowhere, sailing at you right out of the empty sky: two previously unrelated ideas come together and make something new under the sun....

A Tickling Tyranny

There's this craving that won't be satiated no matter what I did, no matter where I went. The soul seems seeking something I do not know. How can I look for something when I do not know what I am looking for? This feeling. It's weird. It's outlandish. And yet deeply familiar. Like it's meant... Continue Reading →

#Quoted: Remember…

Neil Gaiman's writing is awe-spiring. His stories give a reader much food for thought. There has never been a time when I have been disappointed with his books and that is simply because he knows what a reader seeks. He always explores different storylines with distinct character sketches for the protagonists, always. I can write... Continue Reading →

ख्वाहिश बस इतनी सी थी…

रात की खामोशियों को चीरती हुई एक आवाज़ गूंजी जानी पहचानी सी उस शोर की तलाश में कदम मेरे कभी अंधेरों का पीछे करते कभी तेरी यादों का ~~~ सन्नाटों से लैस एक चौराहे पर फिर दूर खड़ी तेरी परछाई मुझे देख मुस्कुरायी हज़ारों सवाल लिए मेरी नज़रें तेरा मन टटोलती रहीं सेहमी सी तेरी... Continue Reading →

उस रात की बात …

क्या बताएं तुम्हें उस रात की बात चौखट पे बैठे अतीत की चादर में लिपटे किस कदर हम ख्वाहिशों को तरसे ~~~ क्या बताएं तुम्हें उस रात की बात होठों को सीए खामोशियों की बाहों में सिमटे किस कदर हम अल्फ़ाज़ को तरसे ~~~ क्या बताएं तुम्हे उस रात की बात खुद से गुफ्तगू करते... Continue Reading →
