A typical scene at the hospital, a woman screaming behind closed doors, a bulb flashing red above. All around the doors, people are sympathising with her and speaking of the pain she has to endure while giving birth. Everybody has yet to notice the young man, who with clammy hands is nervously pacing up and down the corridor, glancing often at those doors, probably as tense as the woman inside. A look of relief flashes across his face as the screaming melts into the sound of a crying baby. The doctor announces the birth of a daughter. This episode has been narrated to me countless times and my father’s behaviour characterised as “That of a child at Christmas”. That, my friends, was the start of an unbreakable bond, The Father – Daughter Relationship.
Welcome to my blog!!
My name is Sonali Mukherjee and I’m currently in my final year towards a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering.
Right from my childhood, I had 2 dreams, to be an Engineer and to write stories and poems. When I joined an Engineering stream, I thought my dream to write would remain just that, a dream. I was happily proven wrong a year later when I was selected to be part of the nascent team of correspondents for my college’s newsletter. I went on to be Managing Editor for the year after that.
I had already written some 45-50 poems and 2 short novels(fantasy) in school but had never published them. Now, after my duties as Managing Editor are done, I’m taking the opportunity to publish them on this blog.
Watch out for updates!
