Lost in Map






"Aman? Do you have any idea where we are?"

Aman puts the car into parking gear and tried to regain the signal in his mobile to load the map.

"I'm trying to find the way out. Calm down, Zoya."

"Are we lost?”

"Mmmh... I think so..." He said holding his hands higher to the skies and praying for at least a glimpse of a weak signal. 

"Oh My God!" She exclaimed and snatched his phone and threw it to the backseat and grinned... 

"Atlast! We are lost and free!"

  1. It's wonderful to be lost sometimes and forget about everything around you. Nice one. Such a different perspective to the prompt.

  4. 'Lost and Free' isn't that how we all long to be sometimes?

  5. Nothing like being away from the internet and network "Maya Jaal"!
    I remember when we went on a short trip to Velas, a small town in Konkan region, it was my service provider only whose network was available! That means everyone could give more time to each other and nature! And then I was so glad to switch it off! I can connect with the story so very well! Sometimes its really good to be lost in the great company!

    2. Loved reading your comment. These days I intentionally ignore my phone for sometime just to regain some silent me time. Technology can be a curse while it's a boon.

  6. Short, sweet and starting truth. To be honest I feel I am so drawn into the net that I really need to get off the hook. Blame it on blogging in a way cos thats where I spend a major part of my time online. I need to do the same as Aman and Zoya- hopefully I get there soon!

  14. There are moments when I just wish I could just leave everything behind and go wandering off. But I would want to read, so either books or Kindle - If I take the kindle, how will i charge it? If I take books along, how many can I carry.
    I never reach the conclusion of the said discussion. Can you help? :P
