Malati

PROMPT: Playwriting Competition 2020

                                                                                   
This play is set partly in present-day Rajasthan, a state in West India, sharing a border with Pakistan, and partly in 1950 Rajasthan, three years after the 1947 Partition of India. Malati, now an old woman, reminisces on her life in a noble family, with her childhood spent in the years after the Partition.

Hearts

PROMPT: Human Connections Essay Competition 2019

    It is probably during the most mundane moments that I notice the presence of the humans around me. As I sit drying my hair out in the bright sunlit afternoon, a pigeon flutters and lands in front of me, looking side to side with her inquisitive red eyes. Looks at me, as if to say something.

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2019

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019
