We did not want


The clouds covered most of the night sky. Like a shy girl hiding from the guests, the moon hid behind the clouds, trying to escape our eyes. Happy that we had made the decision, we spent the night in comforting silence, watching the stars twinkling their affirmation and smiling down at us.

We did not want a grand wedding, just the people we love. We did not want a huge feast, but to bring some smiles on people who knew not what happiness was. We did not want gold and gifts, we wanted to share our gifts with those who had none.

As per our wish, our wedding ceremony would be held in the neighbourhood orphanage, among the kids whom we loved spending time with, among the kids who were our extended family.

Writing to me is therapy, it frightens and comforts at the same time. Liberates like nothing else. A book in my own name is a dream, but a bigger dream would be to write something that haunts the reader even after the last page is turned and the book is shut. I enjoy reading and music, spending time with family whilst battling my social awkwardness.
