Share The Homecoming - Chapter 1
2015-10-3 17:57
He woke up early that morning, excited. He could not sleep well at all the previous night. His feelings were too many, too strong and kept him from simply relaxing and getting some much needed rest though he went to bed early. He felt like he could stay up and active and do anything he wanted to. He had so many plans and things to do once he woke up. It was about early morning around 4 am that he finally got into a deep sleep with a vivid dream. He woke up suddenly due to an involuntary r ...

Share Never Forget Who You Owe
2015-9-10 12:35
"You owe your birth to your parents. But that is just a minor, obvious fact. That is not all. You owe everyone who makes you what you are today. You owe the farmer, the plants and the animals that gave you the food you have eaten every meal. They are from every corner of the world. You owe the plants and the earth the air and water you need to survive. You owe the Sun the light to sustain you. You owe the Moon the magic of a moonlit night spent with your love. You owe the tailor your clot ...

Share My Father, My Grandson?
2015-8-27 08:48
It has been a few years since my father passed away, but it often seems like it was just yesterday. The people that knew him well in his younger days as teenager and young man are all themselves old now. Many are no longer around. Some still are though. My mother, who had known him since they were young and spent the major part of lifetime with him, shares with me some of the memories. She tells me of his favourite movies and songs, when we chat these days. We look back on old mem ...

Share The Last Penny - Chapter 23 – Parallel Universe 1 – The Contrarian Death
2015-8-24 13:58
Srini and his family had a day off from work to recover from the pleasant tiredness of the weekend outing to the State Fair and Circus. Everyone got back into their usual routines. Srini and Ben worked the courts often. It was very profitable and the tips were quite generous too. They usually set up their stand close to a bench. It helped many who wanted to sit down while getting their shoes shined. Some liked to keep their bags or heavy su ...

Share The Last Penny - Chapter 22 - Parallel Universe 1 – The Contrarian Life
2015-8-22 11:45
Life was busy and had a physically taxing routine for Srini and Ben. Srini realised that it seemed part of the reason Ben seemed in such good health most of the time. He had many little chores and physical tasks he attended to everyday, not seeming to be in a hurry, but he got things done on time with good planning. There always seemed to be enough to do. Srini realised that he had gotten into a groove with a routine similar to Ben. They had a good time together. They often ...

Share The Last Penny - Chapter 21 – Parallel Universe 1 - Srini Starts to Shine
2015-8-10 12:39
Srini started to work in real earnest. It was a full, busy day, each day. He was happy but tired at the end of the day, but slept well. Rohan and Anita had quietly come one day and had watched him from a distance before heading back. They decided to come one day with Molly and the twins. So they all came one day, in the afternoon. They brought snacks and drinks for Srini and Ben. They were working near some office buildings and were not too busy. It was an unexpected visit for Srini ...

Share The Last Penny -Chapter 20 - Parallel Universe 1 – Rise And Shoeshine
2015-8-9 20:16
Srini started training and work under Ben’s supervision. He had to wake up earlier than usual to take the bus early from Rohan’s place to make it on time. After the first week he decided to find some accommodation closer to work. He spoke to Ben about it and Ben said he would put the word out. Often people rented out shared accommodation with a private bedroom and ensuite, but a shared kitchen. Ones with shared toilet facilities tended to be cheaper. Ben would get to know wh ...

2015-8-7 20:13
Srini went to see Ben in a couple of days. He dressed in an old comfortable set of clothes that he normally used to work in his old garage on winter days. He had on a hat with a protective visor. Rohan, Molly, Anita and the twins had all waved him goodbye as he left home. They had fed him breakfast and packed him a lunch, drink and some snacks, with extra to share with Ben. Srini decided to take the public transport bus. Ben was sitting near Srini’s favourite bench and he had a l ...

Share The Last Penny - Chapter 18 - Parallel Universe 1 – A Family Meeting
2015-8-6 07:19
Srini called Anita and Rohan to tell them that he wanted a family meeting after dinner that evening. He asked Anita to bring Tarun along, if possible. It was an early good dinner that evening at Rohan’s place. Once it was over and the twins were put to bed, Molly and Rohan joined the rest in the living room where Srini, Anita and Tarun were playing a board game, sipping some wine. All eyes turned towards Srini as he set down his wine glass. He saw his children clasp ...

Share The Last Penny - Chapter 17- Parallel Universe 1 – A Plan For A Short Life
2015-8-4 14:47
It occurred to Srini that he was looking forward to what could be called an unexpected, short lifetime again. He was again about to start with almost nothing, in an adult body with all his memories from the ‘previous’ life intact. He did not want to upset the financial plans and situation of his children again in a major way. He would never feel like asking for some of his money back that he had given away or arranged to be given away to charities. He still had enough to live his old li ...

    Welcome you being back on the forum! Your topic is interesting! We bloggers should post more writings with unique fresh ideas to reader-friends.
    In China people waste too much money on friends who have to organize a banque at restaurant for kinds of reasons. (Such as kid‘s birth,  entering university or wedding, death of parent, and so on.)  I think colleagues should care and help each other with real heart that pure relationship can not be measured with banknotes!
