Too much of a good thing?

Dear readers, here is a short story I wrote some time ago. Hope you like it!

“I can’t wait to go to Mumbai!’ he cried, jumping up and down around his mother, who didn’t seem to share his enthusiasm. But of course, he didn’t let that bother him. He was too excited to care.

“Stop irritating me, Rama.” His mother was busy in the kitchen, her fingers expertly kneading the dough for the hot rotis (Indian bread) they were to have in a while. He plopped himself onto the platform, beside the dough bowl, desperate to get her attention.

“Do you know what I plan to do there?”, he asked, holding his mother’s face in his tiny hands, forcing her to look at him.

Getting It Right

Daily Prompt: Groundhog day

In the comedy “Groundhog Day” Bill Murray experienced the same day again and again, stuck in a time loop until he got the day “right.” What day would you choose to repeat until you got it right? Do you think it’s ever possible to get life “right”?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us REPETITION.

The day started off

as any other,

Dull,

boring,

no colour.

Kandi Curry

Weekly writing challenge: A pinch of You

This week, we want a window into the complexity that is you. We want your best recipes.

We don’t mean we want your best recipe for fried chicken, we want the recipe for all the bits and pieces and quirks and foibles and loves that make you you.

 

Here’s a juicy titbit….a starter you can munch on while you go through my delicious kandi curry recipe!

Do you know my surname- kandicuppa comprises of 2 words-

Kandi meaning yellow dal/lentils and

Cuppa (pronounced cooppa!) meaning heap. (in Telugu, which is an Indian language)

so my ancestors are from a place where there was an abundance of dal/lentils!

Isn’t that interesting?!

Now here’s the recipe! 🙂 enjoy!!

A little bit of innocence in the jar,

A little bit of cheeky fun by the bar,

A dash of fiery temper, into the mix,

a hint of sweet smile, playing on the lips,

A little bit of attitude on the go,

The Craziest First Impression

Some first impressions are meant to last for eternity..

who had shifted here,

with bag and baggage.

I was excited about

seeing their home,

We left our house
