Nillionaire

There was a time when dreams were hallucinations. Those days when you would wake up wondering if people with salaries used the same purses and wallets that you used, or if their purses were as big as back packs. You were a student surviving on lean budgets then. You questioned if they wore the same…

The Auditor

No one ever seems to understand auditors. Why they have monologues  or talk to their laptops! Why they sometimes do both day and night shift combined, ( read as working overnight), why they are always deep in thoughts or try to make sense out numbers in the middle of totally unrelated conversations.

  I miss our chats – about business, about Pinterest, about life and you telling me how I’m the best thing it ever brought your way. I miss your embrace – the long warm hugs that felt like home. They made me feel safe and like everything was gonna be okay. I miss our fitness…

Cold Flames

Boyfriend? Soulmate? Fiancé? Husband maybe? Not really, I said a man! Those other labels can wait. Perplexed I ask, “So what are you working on? Been three years now Nina, are you comfortable hanging in there… Rewind. Ten or so minutes ago, Nina was at the verge of breaking down. He had stood her up,…

While seeking for a job

Are you going to be one of those who do work because they feel that they have no other choice. Those half baked clones you meet in town with gloomy faces whining about their jobs and bosses every single day? Will you be comfortable with delivering average results as long as you are not the…
