Desi romance

“Why is your smartphone looking so dull?’
“I installed an app so that the screen brightness can be reduced”
“But why, it looks as if the phone is dying slowly”
“I do not want to disturb your sleep with the phone’s light”

Such incidents squash my laments consisting of why I am never showered with gifts, surprises, dates, impromptu trips, cards, mush…etc…etc….etc…

During a rainy midnight

“Its raining heavily outside”


“The view is so beautiful”

“I can hear lots of water falling down. Are you sure the over head tank has not burst?”

“I am telling you no, its the rain making these sounds”
“Why don’t you get up and see”

“You enjoy Zack, let me sleep”
