Secret Memoirs of the Inanimate | #MyFriendAlexa: Theme Reveal

I am attempting to enter a realm of fiction writing that I have never tried earlier – narrating secrets from the point of view of an inanimate object.
Gear up to listen to some interesting tales narrated by a bottle of massage oil, a walking stick, a bindi, a blade of grass, one grain of salt, a knife and many other inanimate objects. Each of these objects will take the reader through a riveting narration of one key incident from their lives.
Are you ready to go on this journey with me?

“Watch out Maa, this one is going to be the best picture with the maximum likes & comments. My account will explode with the traction!” she attempted to laugh, but wheezed and coughed instead. Will Aashirya’s last wish come true?

Short Story: Bullet in the Heart | From Trapped In Heaven & Other Stories | Mayura Amarkant

The boys would know what it means to ride a bullet with a hot, sexy woman in the pillion seat. I was the object of envy at work & I gloated with pride, enjoying the attention. Dating Bindhiya and riding my bullet was a double whammy. I had the best of both worlds.
