The pain of a break-up

Never let me go

It was during our college picnic that I first saw him. He was not from our college but he was a friend of my classmate Ryta. We were in the third year of our medical school when we all decided, enough of studies and semesters, let us at least have an outing. We planned an …

Casual Sex on Sofa

My one night stand

A few nights ago, I had a one-night stand with a complete stranger. My first — but hardly a first for womankind. I am a bonafide prude when it comes to anything even remotely sexual with strangers. It’s not that I’m not a sexual person per se, but I’m much more inclined to get my …

My Facebook Husbands

It’s been six long years and I am single. My life revolved my work, I punched in sharp at eight in the morning sometimes punching out at nine in the evening, ran for the locals, if possible grab a window seat and plug in the earphones and listen to songs. Rewinding the few years when …

Aunt Flo finally arrives

It was during winter of 1998. Back when my chosen attire was a polka dotted red frock, my favorite movie was Gone with the wind and my feminist icon was Lisa Najeeb Halaby.

Hrehan, 38 C & a love child

I am beyond hot for Hrehan, who’s only 20, half my age, and in a relationship. But the relationship isn’t the problem because Hrehan’s not in love with his girl—he’s in love with me. And it’s not our ages either, though I could be his mother. The problem is that while I would love to …
