#Bar-A-Thon Day 7 : Seven Year Itch

 

Anamika was watching her friends’ pics on social media. She thought about the last time she had gone with Rohit for a vacation three years back.

A post caught her eyes, hesitatingly she dialled the number given.

“What’s the harm in trying once? Rohit any way never pays attention to me. He will never come to know.”

Refreshed and satisfied, she thanked the stylist for the awesome makeover and booked him for the next time.

“Anu, you look really hot in your new looks!”Rohit grabbed her by her waist.

The spark was back and the Seven Year Itch was gone.

#Bar-A-Thon Day 6: Six Minutes of Fame

They dreamt of performing in India’s Best Talent Hunt Show and becoming The Famous Four.

Beach, roadside, parks, bridges, monuments, high-rise buildings, they had tried them all for their death-defying stunts. The next chosen destination was the dam for they would send the video for the first round of audition. They will become famous.

The wild waters were let loose, blinded by youth, they ignored the warning.

The video went viral. They became famous, only none of them survived to see it.

Four youth drowned while performing stunts on the dam…

All for mere six minutes of fame.

#Bar-A-Thon Day 4: Four Corners of the World

It’s a grand ceremony. People from the four corners of the world have gathered here. My father, my mother and all my friends are here. I have made them all proud today. It’s a special day for me for they will honour me with the Param Vir Chakra today.

Neeta, my beautiful wife, looks beautiful as ever holding our baby in her arms. She climbs the stairs to join me on the stage.

I am so happy to see her yet so sad!

How I wish God had given me a few more years to live with her!

#Bar-A-Thon Day 3: Three’s A Crowd

The setting was perfect, Manasi was looking gorgeous in her black dress while Sumit looked like a Greek god in his black suit. After six months of having a baby, they had planned a dinner date leaving their baby in the custody of grandparents.

The waiter took the order, Manasi was waiting for some romantic conversation.

Sumit’s phone rang. A call by one of his clients took a good half an hour after which the rest of the evening was gone with Sumit making arrangements for his client’s visit.
“Three’s a crowd,” she thought as they sat in the car.

“Yes, but he is a divorce`.”

“It’s ok dad. It will work.”

Her semester was coming to an end.

“Dad, any other?”

“He drinks too.”

“No worries, dad.”
