Share Chapter 16 – Parallel Universe 1 – The Waiting Game Begins
KIyer 2015-8-3 07:41
Another couple of months passed quietly and swiftly with Srini living with his son Rohan’s family. Srini went to meet Dr. Fa and returned from the last visit with a clean bill of health. “I will be most happy to have been mistaken or wrong, Srini. Make the most of what you have,” Dr. Fa had said with a smile. He knew that it might just be a matter of a few more months before the signs started to appear and that Srini might get worse, but he could not entirely rule of the possib ...

Share Grandfatherly Feelings

He sat reminiscing, reclining on the couch. It would the first birth anniversary of the little ones. There would be a huge party, friends and family would come, bring a lot of presents and shower them with love. They would be at the stage when they would appreciate things with colour, movement, sounds, enjoy playing with things, smiles, being carried up on the shoulder and make delighted sounds. They would be toddling around. They would compete over toys, one had to get two of a ...

Share A Tea vendor from Lucknow show that humanity has no religion
KIyer 2015-6-15 09:49
Time and again, I am constantly reminded of how the common people live around the world, in countries where the media often hyper-inflates and sensationalizes the most negative acts done in the name of religion. The more quietly spoken, less known media stories are such as the one below. The electronic social media network has brought out more of these true stories. This is a more genuine reflection of life, a point that I have repeatedly made in the past. Would like to see more of ...

Share The Last Penny - Chapter 15 – The Split Into Parallel Universes
KIyer 2015-5-19 08:06
I suppose most of us have heard of the theories of parallel universes. According to some supposedly scientific notions, our world and universe is just one of the many possible parallel universes. There is also the theory that at a very minute level, the level of all things of the size of an atom or smaller, the laws of the universe are strange and not as we humans believe of the world around us. Things are not exact or measurable and many things, whose existence we believe in, exist only ...

Srini’s checks for his charities and others were covered by the sale of the house. Rohan and Anita insisted that Srini spend some time at ...

Srini flew in to Frankfurt. He was met by his cousin and a childhood friend. He spent a couple of days with them and their families. They had a good time and Srini told them why his time was running out. He asked them to keep the news to themselves. It was emotional, but they agreed and went along.

Share The Last Penny - Chapter 12 – A Tour of Nairobi and Off to Europe
KIyer 2015-5-10 08:01
“Good morning, Mister Srini.” Srini woke up with a start and his eyes were blinded by the sunlight streaming in. Amani had come to wake him up. It was getting late in the morning, the big old fashioned grandfather clock in her room had just struck 10 o’clock and Srini had overslept. Amani and her family had waited patiently for him to join them at breakfast, then relented and went ahead. The younger son, then the older son and then Kiano and his sister all had taken turns to come ...

Anita, Rohan, Molly and the kids drove Srini to the airport. He was first headed to India via Singapore, to visit some close family and friends. They checked in and spent some time waiting, letting the kids wander and play in the large spaces at the airport. A little while before the flight was called, Srini got up and after the farewell hugs and kisses, picked up his wheeled carry-on baggage and walked towards the door leading to the immigration and security check. He turned a ...
