Exclusive Chapter from my new novel AADITA

From Chapter Thirteen
Raina pushed open the car door and got out. So far the day had been the most enjoyable one she had so far. Everything had been perfect and she couldn’t remember the last time she had so much fun. But she should have known her happiness never lasted for long.
She clutched the door to the car and stood staring at Ahan as he sauntered towards his own cabin, pausing suddenly and then racing towards the door.
“Ahan?” she called, but he rushed into the cabin without replying.
She looked on her right at the small lake and closed the door behind her. Ahan’s cabin was the only one  beside the lake and she imagined that months ago, or even weeks before, the cabin must have looked beautiful, sitting beside such an idyllic setting.
But now, the cabin looked as if it had been ravaged by cruel intentions. The windows were either cracked or broken; the entire outside wall had been scrawled on with graffiti and the wooden railings had been smashed. 
Her right hand twitched suddenly th…

Predestination- My take on the movie with spoilers

Predestination is one of those movies that you can’t stop thinking about even after a day you’ve watched the movie. Not that the plot is confusing or that it needs to be over-analyzed to comprehend what the story was all about. It is one of those movies that teaches you and touches your heart and you only find that out the second the end credits roll in.
Predestination cannot be talked about without giving away the ending or a crucial part of the story that leaves you shocked. The only way to even begin writing about this movie is that first and foremost, it’s about a complex character with an unusual backstory. This character is strong yet piteous. The experiences this character faces, breaks your heart and when everything is revealed in a gripping climax, it stuns you and then overwhelms you with emotions.

The Babadook- My review and my take on the movie

It’s been a long time since there’s been a scary monster horror movie where childhood fears take precedence over the same old and tired clich├ęs of zombies and “found” camera footages. The latter has certainly overwhelmed the horror movies with titles that hardly scare much less entertain. It’s been done a million times now…let it go. I don’t want to see shaky camera angles and someone screaming off-screen or blurry night vision shots that barely provide a gasp of surprise.
These are the kind of movie I tend to shy away from nowadays. Some of them were spooky, but most of them were boring with a capital B. So when I chanced upon the poster of The Babadook, I was immediately intrigued and excited. I was sure that this would be the movie that would bring back the monsters to horror films much like the Blair Witch Project brought about the trend of “lost footages”.
The movie starts of well enough by introducing the characters and the dilemmas. An insomniac mother, who is haunted by a t…
