Open your eyes, her mother assured
hush my baby hush, you are safe, continued her mother.

A close friend of mine once told me that I get to choose my battle. It is up to me to educate people on what is right or wrong. To an ignorant, you can never help because they chose to…

It was a normal day at work where sun was shining bright outside and we employees in Bangalore office were at our comforts in air conditioned cubicles. While the entire nation was waiting for the results to be declared on India's General Assembly Election, my colleague Ms. Toshi Suman Gupta wrote a prompt. I got interested so tried my hands in continuing from where she left those beautiful words.  I am sharing the same below for your to enjoy. Do leave a comment on how you felt after reading it. We have titled it as The Winter Wolf.
