Travelling abroad was Rashmi's dream which came true when she won a travel package to Malaysia in a contest. He pressurized her husband Aakash for the trip as they spend little time together due to his work commitments. She thought that a foreign vacation would help to strengthen their relationship which was otherwise in a brittle state. His communication with her was limited to casual salutations only. She felt that he had something to say and that trip would provide an opportunity for him to lighten his heart.

He halfheartedly boarded the flight with her while she was in full confidence to heal their relationship. When the plane was in air she initiated the conversation in romantic manner while he remained quiet. Suddenly plane started shaking, oxygen marks came out hanging in front of them, pilot announced to tie seat belts. Children started crying, every passenger was in a state of fear. Many believed that the plain was going to crash.

Believing that his end was near Aakash confessed to Rashmi about his second wife. "I knew her before our marriage but my family was against her and compelled me to marry you. I maintain a distance from you because I don't love you. Because we are dying now I think you should know this truth." Rashmi started crying. After a while airplane became steady and the pilot announced ," There is no need to panic. Everything is under control now. It was just air turbulence".

Today's alphabet is and it's UBC DAY 23.


  1. loved the story!! didn't see the end coming. really well written.

    1. In the end from pilot's point of view everything was under control but as you can see,there relationship would be in turbulence

  2. There are times to keep one's mouth closed. This was one of them. I enjoyed this.

    Over visiting from the A to Z.

  3. ohh poor Rashmi. That was so unfair ... well written

  4. Nothing is under control I would say :-p

  5. Love that. Rule #1: never confess the deep dark secrets unless you know for sure you're crashing.

  6. At least the turbulence made her realize the reality...
    Deep story, Cifar.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

(Inter - Religion marriage still taboo among Indians ? What is your take on it .)

We as Indians are still confused for our cultural identity i.e who we are as residents of this country. Hindu,Hindustani,Indian,Bharatiya,Hindi or something else. When there is so much struggle in conveying our identity then how people who consider even inter-caste marriages as taboo would accept Inter - Religion marriages. We are all united under our constitution which make all of us equal and grants freedom to follow any religion. An adult individual thus holds the freedom to choose his or her partner regardless to any religion.The constitution also declares India as Bharat or India and not as Hindustan which denotes its secular identity not related to a particular religion. How a Chris…

An Ode To Teachers

An Ode To Teachers.

Teachers play an important role in shaping our life. If you are among privileged who took formal education or even when you are among the non-educated there are people in your life who teach you something or the other in course of journey of life. Apart from life I have learnt many things from many teachers I encountered in life whether it’s about subject like Science, History, Literature, Geography or things helpful in daily life which make us more experience. 
Naming any one teacher will devalue the contribution of others. So I restrict myself from naming anybody and before going further with the topic I like to remember my English teacher whose death news I have heard recently. He taught me English from Seventh to Tenth class. He depends on his life experiences while teaching than on bookish knowledge. We used to enjoy his classes. I was a bright student and teacher’s favorite but on two occasions in my school life I got slapped. Once in first class when as a m…
