April 2015 A-Z Blogging Challenge Theme Reveal- Short Stories in Series

I am very excited because April is just around the corner and I’m going to participate in the A-Z blogging challenge. This is going to be my second time and last year it was super fun and I was fortunate to come across some wonderful blogs. I was a novice then and I learned from my mistakes as I blogged everyday with a theme “Life and its Stories” which was a mix of fiction and some real life anecdotes. This year I am going to write a short story in series and each chapter that I’m going to publish will incorporate idioms starting with a letter for that day.

I am scared, happy, excited, and anxious all at the same time because I’ve always wanted to write a story that exceeds the 5k word mark and I’m sure the story that I’ll be writing will develop into a novella. Here’s a short preview of my story. I hope to see you here on my blog in the month of April.

Sudhir’s idea of his future life partner is a woman with an adventurous personality, someone who shares his passion to live life to the hilt, someone who can hold her own forte in any conversation.  Surrounded by strong, financially independent women in his family, he is of the opinion that women can conquer the world if they so desire. So it comes as a total surprise for his mother and sister when he agrees to marry Lalitha- a somber and reserved girl from an orthodox Brahmin family. Sudhir believes that Lalitha has a much more valiant soul hidden deep within her reticent self and he falls in love with the confident, yet humble woman.

But several weeks later, Sudhir is hit with an uncertainty about his decision to marry Lalitha. What had caused Sudhir to change his mind? Will Sudhir abandon Lalitha even before their wedding?

Read my debut story “I’ll Be There Beside You”, to know more about Sudhir and Lalitha .


  1. I am hooked already to know more about Sudhir and Lalitha :) April....... Come soon!!!! :D
    All the best for the challenge prasanna :)

  2. Most men discover soon enough that they really aren't strong enough to handle strong women. Lalitha sounds like a mystery. Please keep us updated...

  3. Wow! I loved the sneak peek, Prasanna. Glad to have come across your blog. Will follow along in April.
