Jennifer was sitting on the pile of blankets, still sleepy, trying to look fresh. Cyrus was the one to answer the door. “Bread toast with sunny side up eggs plus cappuccino”- Jennifer would always shout the moment she used to enter the college canteen. “He still remembers.” She blushed but tried to flush it out. However, it was too late. Cyrus looked at her slyly and started folding his laptop and other files he was working on to make space for the breakfast.

“Wait! What’s that? Is it that blog TMJ? It’s trending on social media nowadays and I absolutely love it. This author has earned a reputation of being daring, radical, good at research and fiery. Only if I could know who he is.”, Jennifer made a sad face.

Cyrus was excited, “At your service ma’am”. He bowed before Jennifer and smiled. “TMJ stands for Tamso Ma Jyotirgamaya. You know Jenny what it means. It means lead me from darkness to light. I have been working very hard on it for last two years- a lot of primary research, investigations and interviews have gone into it. It’s like my field diary. And why I chose to stay anonymous?” laughed Cyrus. “Not that I hate publicity or I am afraid of someone but then I don’t want these things to disturb me. Now the whole world can make a lot of fuss over it while I carry on with my work.”

“I am quite impressed, Cy”, she giggled. “Let me see what you were working on last night. A romantic poem I guess. What is this?” her expressions changed from excitement to disgust.

“This is my latest project. It’s not yet published. I am trying to bust a human trafficking organization. These are some photos and videos of interviews from brothels, police remand home etc.”

“Who’s this man? I think I would never be able to forget the sadness in his eyes.” she was watching a video. “His daughter is a victim of human trafficking. He had been fighting for a long time now but in vain. He’s one of the thousand parents who have lost their kids to the greed and lust of society. I am sure of one thing Jenny- someone very powerful is backing this wretched business. I have proofs and I won’t be surprised if he’s someone close to the minister.”

“Our minister!” Jenny was shocked.

“Yes, poor guy. He doesn’t know He has spent his entire life fighting against flesh trade and trafficking and someone from his close ranks is funding and supporting it. This paper presentation is my only chance to meet the minister and let him know about the misdeeds.”

Cyrus looked at Jennifer. The moment he started talking, she could not take her eyes off him. He meant so much to her and to so many people he did not even know. She was so lucky to come across such a good human being. She was head over heels in love. This realization almost made her cry.

“Did I hurt you again?” Cyrus looked concerned.

“No silly.” Jennifer laughed and hugged him tightly. Cyrus hugged her back, kissed her forehead and got back to work with jenny sleeping by his side.

One rainy morning, Gregor gets up in the morning and finds out that he has turned into an insect! Instead of panicking over how he turned into a bug and how he can get back into his original form, he was worried how to get to the work as soon as possible. Metamorphosis is a masterpiece by Franz Kafka which is inspired by his own life. The novel revolves around an event which seems to be absurd and unrealistic in real world but has been dealt with utmost practicality. Metamorphosis is a story that has forced me to think about a lot of issues that’s going around in the contemporary world even though the story was written almost a century ago. This post is not a book review but my retrospection over few relevant issues.

Depression- An insider’s account

A tale of a bossy brain, out of control hormones, a confused heart and a bruised soul
Who would you listen to?
Imagine the best day of your life. What is it like? You wake up at 6 am, hit the gym at 8, workout till you get exhausted, have a healthy breakfast, grab a coffee and show on time to office. You are greeted by cheerful colleagues; you have another round of coffee with them and a gossip session too. Suddenly, there is a crisis in office and you come up with a brilliant idea. Your boss appreciates you, your team loves you. After work, you hang out with your friends. Your parents/partner calls you up and you spend hours chit chatting. Before going to bed, you write a blog post which instantly gets 50 likes. You sleep peacefully like a child.
Now imagine, you wake up in a hospital bed, bandaged and unable to move your legs. You have bunches of flowers around you. All your loved ones are showering you with love, blessings, wishes and sympathy. You try to get up but no one would …

“Not bad Jenny, you’re doing wonderful!” Jennifer patted her own back. “Now you have actually crossed the guest zone and entered into the family zone. They have started asking you for petty household errands. Good for you for you are so close to your destination." She chuckled in her mind. “Tonight…”
“All this means she’s a kidnapper. She wants to take our princess away from us. How dare she even think of this? I would kill her”, said an agitated Tara. “Tara, calm down. Since morning, we are stuck at the same discussion. You did not go to office today and neither did Roohi go to school. This is not going anywhere. We should call the police.”
On facing a crisis, Shekhar and Tara switched positions. Sweet and gullible stay-home-dad turned into ‘My Daddy Strongest’ and street-smart media person mom became an emotionally …
