Following My Heart…..

  The most vivid choice that I made in life was when I thwarted a fiftyish man from trying to grope me from behind. I yelled out at him in the bus I was travelling. I was a school going kid, a teenager and felt utterly violated when I found a man old enough to be my father getting too close for comfort. I could not muster up enough guts to slap him but I gave him a lecture of my life right there in the bus that I am sure he never forgot.   I walked into my house … Continue reading Following My Heart…..

I’m about to black out as I release the garrote and allow myself to breathe once again, allowing myself back from the brink of darkness.”   Private India was one of the last books I had received for reviewing before I left for Madurai.
