Festivals Make Me Feel Lonelier

By |2019-04-16T09:39:12+00:00October 19th, 2018|Relationship, Women|

I take a break from work to go out for my evening stroll. Usually I study in the back room of my house as there is less noise. As I start down the stairs, I hear a sound of chorus coming from the opposite road. It is Navratra (Hindu festival) and loudspeakers [...]

When I Left My Ego

By |2019-04-16T09:40:37+00:00October 9th, 2018|Relationship, Women|

I read somewhere, that human beings have a virgin tendency for violence. This apothegm is so true for me. Tonight while returning home from work, I and my live-in partner had a small argument in the auto-rickshaw. It so happened that he wanted to show me a video that he [...]

When I supported an Unemployed Partner

By |2019-04-16T09:44:05+00:00October 8th, 2018|Relationship, Women|

I've supported two non-earning 'male' partners in the past, each for a year. Have put 'male' in italics as typically, non-earning partner refers to a female. Indeed it is difficult, but then I wonder, how millions of men with their dependent wives do not find it difficult. In the course [...]

The Garden of Love

It was a Sunday morning and Mandi House looked like a freshly brewed cup of Nescafe. It was just me and Suhas walking on the vacant streets with a stray cat in company. The small suburban houses on the sidewalk flashed by like the pages of a book as we [...]

Love and Passion are at Opposite Ends

By |2019-04-16T09:50:12+00:00September 13th, 2018|Relationship, Women|

I'm a romantic. The romantics refuse a life without passion; they swear that they'll never give up on true love. They are the perennial seekers, looking for the person for whom desire never fizzle. If passion is on decline, love must be on deathbed. They mourn the loss of excitement [...]

This morning, I opened my son's Facebook account after a long time. The account was created 6 years back by my ex-husband, and as I opened it I saw a flurry of notifications on the bell icon. I clicked it only to discover that most of these updates belonged to [...]

When I saw him as the ‘Other’

I have reached a state in my relationship, where we have become caring partners but are no more sexual animals. I see a conspicuous change in my sexual lust for him over the years we have been together. I still remember the time when we first met, there was this [...]
