Welcome #Fridayfictioneer

In her well lit living room with big glass windows, Nirmala could not understand what made Bhola so afraid in such a beautiful setting.

Scared #FridayFictioneer

On her way home from the airport, Nirmala saw “Box Office” on the display board. Nirmala was happy that she had also booked an entry into her new home.

Ideological Battle #FridayFictioneer

“Sir you have to stop this party,” said the police man looking at the decorations. A real estate tycoon had organised a poolside party after winning a court battle against building a multistorey paid sports complex. “On what ground officer?” asked the host, “we have won the case fair and square!” “A stay order has...

Isolation #FridayFictioneer

The man got dressed and sat outside in the balcony. For the last so many years he has been following this routine of eating his breakfast.
