Cookie Jars

via Daily Prompt: Hidden
How normal is it to store bits of scrap!
I’m sure all of us have a box stashed away somewhere which is filled with some random-est of stuffs. Broken toys, birthday cards, first love letter, marbles, pens, bottle corks, key-chains, lose pearls and many of such seemingly useless things. They are like evidences of the life that is now lost to us; filled with bittersweet memories of our childhood, our first love, our first broken heart, of people with whom we are no longer in touch.

This day That year

via Daily Prompt: Disastrous
How, why and when it happened I don’t know. It just did. Whole day today I tried my best not to think about it. Tried not to think of that beautiful rainy day, about that mere coincidence of random events but most importantly about you!

So…the inspiration behind this is an incident from a trek. You will give the gist of it as you read through.

In words that are left unsaid
And in books stacked away unread

Cherry Tree ~ Ruskin Bond

via Daily Prompt: Create
Ever since I read today’s prompt, a short story by Ruskin Bond “The Cherry Tree” has been on my mind. I remember reading the story during my English Class in school and I instantly fell in love with the story, the author and the mountains! So much so that I wanted to live in Mussoorie and have my own garden of cherry trees. Each story of Bond has made me fall in love with him and his portrayal of rural India.
