THE MATYROSHKA CØEPA

CHAPTER ONE It was a rather ordinary day in the mailroom for Adam Martins. He was performing his duties nonchalantly, whistling while picking up packages off the conveyor belt, examining their contents, and sorting them into letters, parcels, cheques and so on and so forth. A rather large parcel caught his attention. He picked it … Continue reading THE MATYROSHKA CØEPA

THE CUPBOARD

It was more of an almirah. This particular almirah belonged to my great grandfather’s grandpa, and he wasn’t really known for fighting for equality in gender. He married fourteen times, and divorced thirteen times. Thirteen. At least, that was the story the public heard. ~~ The truth behind the matter was that he was desperate … Continue reading THE CUPBOARD

THE UNKNOWN EMPEROR

He was an Emperor. A ruler beyond compare. He was the man behind the Roman Empire. But, he was never known to the public. If you traveled back in time, and asked the Romans who their greatest leader was, they would say, “Caesar.” But, it wasn’t Caesar. ~~ He had won many battles, and was … Continue reading THE UNKNOWN EMPEROR

The Mahabharat is a fantastic Indian Epic, and I'm not going to … Continue reading THE ELDER BROTHER’S SURVIVAL GUIDE #1 : GET A DOG

ANGULIMALA AND THE DIVINE TREADMILL

This is a tale of a different boy. A different sort of man. He was called Himsaka at birth, then changed to Ahimsaka, and then, following events made it Angulimala. His birth was marked by several omens, most of them bad. The constellation of thieves appeared in the skies, and black cats swarmed the palace. … Continue reading ANGULIMALA AND THE DIVINE TREADMILL

THE MAYOR OF MARLEBOROUGH

Mr. E. Fitzgerald was a quiet old man in his seventies, with a French beard, silvery white hair, a walking cane and an all-knowing smile. He wore a smart grey suit, and pants to suit, too. He was the Mayor of Marleborough. It wasn't really a lucrative position, because of the many Multi-National Companies around the place … Continue reading THE MAYOR OF MARLEBOROUGH
