Every human wears a mask. Behind the cheerful facade lies faith, hope, trust, love, despair, confidence, insecurity, et al. Everyone has a story.
A DINK couple finding Work From Home a challenge…
The Couple who wasn’t one…
A rigid person who deviates from a lifelong habit…
Two people who remain in touch for 35 years, without talking…
A daughter who has sacrificed her dreams for her mother…
A fictional potpourri of extraordinary narratives of ordinary people who have more to their everyday lives beneath the surface, these stories reflect myriad hues of human behaviour.
From the author of the suspense thriller ‘The Lost Identity’ comes an anthology that touches the human heart. She has painted the minute emotions one feels, experiences, and goes through in their everyday course of life.
Life, today has become extremely fast-paced, brutal in fact, if truth be told.In such a scenario, these little canvases of daily life incidences as portrayed by Smita come across like a breath of fresh air.
Every story written and conceptualised by her has been woven around a delicate human emotion. Be it, love, betrayal, pain, sacrifice, humour, she has managed to capture the essence of them all and put them across in an effortless manner, successfully capturing the reader’s attention.
All stories which are akin to incidental paintings depicting humanity at its extreme points, powerful as well as vulnerable are spellbinding. Smita has managed to put them across seamlessly in a manner that is not only engaging to read but stays with you for long even after you have finished reading a particular story.

I recommend reading Manjiri Indurkar's Origami Aai alongside her memoir to have a fulfilling and enriching experience of telling one's story with grace.
It’s All In Your Head, M famed author Manjiri Indurkar’s debut poetry collection, Origami Aai, is independent and yet an extension of her memoir in which she speaks with utmost grace about all forms of abuses that she has survived. In this book of intriguing and evocative poems, the poet weaves words to form images of the everyday life of her middle-class family, love found and lost, trauma, and healing.
The collection is divided into four segments, beginning with the family, slowly moving towards the world, and finally colliding them together.
We aren’t in mourning, but we are creatures of habit.
So we talk of each one who died of drowning,
and I listen to her stories with the patience
of a chronicler.

Homemakers or as we often call them, 'housewives' are IMO the most underestimated and disrespected of women. Time this changed.
I am so glad to write about this as homemakers were and till are the most undervalued and underestimated.
Having grown up in Indian society, I have witnessed people disrespecting homemakers by delivering various comments like, “saara din ghar par to hoti ho karti kya ho” (being at home what do you do full day), “housewives ke pass to bahut time hota hai” (housewives have a lot of time), “subah kaam hota hai fir to free hi free saara din” (you have work in the morning and then you are free the whole day).
I am a working woman and I confess that I can go to work because earlier my mother and now my mother-in-law share responsibilities with me. People feel the work of a homemaker is easy but honestly, it’s not. I see my mother-in-law waking up at 6 am and working non-stop till night. In fact, I would say the life of some working individuals are much more sorted and simple than that of a homemaker.
