I didn't want to make a scene

It's 7 am. I'm right outside the gate to my friend's house. I'm on my haunches breaking up biscuits to feed the two stray dogs. As I rub behind the dogs' ears, I hear a bike honking down the wide, empty street. I look up to see ...

Mysore, a quiet and beautiful little city.

Soon after school, with debatable grades, getting into my college in Mysore was a relief to both my parents and myself. Me because, YAY college! My parents because Mysore will be safe. It is not a Bangalore. Welcome to Mysore! A quiet and beautiful little place for tourists. Throw in ...
