Those were the days

July 24, 2009

It’s not easy being 75 years old; it’s even worse being 75 and traveling on a plane. But the worst thing is to be 75, traveling on a plane and going to meet one of your best friends who is on his death bed. It’s not easy to be living away from your homeland for […]

Your trash my treasure

February 22, 2008

The cold made him feel numb. His thin jacket was worn out and was not of much help. He took his time finishing his cigarette before he got back into his taxi. The streets at 2 at night were as empty as a ghost town’s. Even the moonlight seemed eerie. It was not out of […]

Triangles and squares

October 5, 2007

I was born in a normal family,or so they say. But I always considered them to be illogical, asymmetrical and unorganized. They said I had OCD. Obsessive compulsive disorder or something like that because I never saw a doctor for it. The truth is I believe symmetry is life. That’s how everything should be. Symmetrical […]

Balance of life

October 2, 2007

It is not the best place to meet new people outside a hospital emergency room. Infact for Maha, no place was a good place to meet new people. It was partly because she was shy and mostly because she adored being alone. That afternoon Maha had to rush to the hospital from school after she […]
