Life Of Ki – Part 4 #Fiction

sunset-690240_640Ki finished her morning routine chores by 10 am and decided to take a short break before she starts to focus on the lunch routine.  Ki prepared her favourite coffee and sat down to read the newspaper.  She remembered that she had to look up for jobs.

She went to the classifieds section and started searching.  She wanted something nearby.  And nowadays many women were working from home.  She felt that would suit her better.  There were many requirements under the ‘Work From Home’ category.  Mostly promising 20,000 – 50,000 Rupees in a month.  That would be too good, felt Ki.   She had not yet prepared her resume.  But the job requirement did not mention what skills are needed.  She decided to call them and phoned the contact number.  A lady picked up the phone.  Continue reading

Handling queries from my desi Jeeves

I was tapping away at my keyboard,  concentrating on the work at hand, shutting out all the outside sounds and completely focussed on my work.  Those who work from home know how important it is to be a self-starter, self-motivator, self-technical (ok, I made up that word),  but you get the idea.  And most of the days,  my housemaid is the only company I have at home.  The children flit in and out of the house either coming or going to school, classes, or going to play.

For one thing,  my female Jeeves,  as Mrs. Funnybones would call her, is mighty proud of my achievements.  She has taken it upon herself, that I should not be disturbed at any cost.  She helps hold out people at the door who come visiting at odd hours.  She also screens the phone calls so no tele-marketeer disturbs me and I can work hard.  She even tells my gas cylinder delivery guy,  “Ma’am is in a call”, as if he would understand.   Continue reading

If we were having coffee …Sept 13 #WeekendCoffeeShare

If we were having coffee, I would say that we are all doing fine here.  The blog has been neglected a bit, but that made me wake up at 6am on a Sunday to write a post.  And then, I didn’t know what I should write about.  With the rest of the family asleep,  I walked around the house for some time for inspiration.  Then I remembered the prompts page for ‘Blogtember’.  There are some wonderful prompts there and I picked up the September 13 prompt.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I liked writing them.  It does help to put things in perspective.  This is how my life is playing out now.

Reading… Righteous Release by Richard Gardner.  Its a saga and I love it.
Playing… with my children
Watching… My plants growing and flowering. A show of my favorite actor Mohit Raina on Sahara One.  Yeah, I know.  I have never visited that channel before.  But all for Mohit.
Trying… to stay on top of my work schedule, book reviews and put in some posts on my blogs.
Cooking… Its Butter Dosas and chutney on the Sunday morning menu.  Do drop in. Continue reading
