Hi, Sarah!

I hope to show readers that there are different facets of this beautiful culture, both good and bad, like any other community. South Asians have pains, goals, love, etc. and are not always defined by their ethnicity or culture. We can all relate to others in some way, we can all empathize and see the world a little differently when we read from another perspective. Also, I do hope that readers do not view any story of mine as the final tell-all. South Asians are not homogenous and one story is merely one string of experiences in a tapestry of many threads.(less)

“The world is changing, and the older generation needs to keep up or shut up.”
Sajni Patel, The Trouble with Hating You

“Where are we?” she asked when I pulled into a parking lot.

“The park.”

“Isn’t it dangerous at night?”

“Not here. Come on.” I pulled her out of her seat and grabbed a blanket from the trunk before trekking through the soft grass.

“You always keep a blanket in your car?”

“Yeah, for emergencies. Never know when you might need it. Food, water, first-aid kit, too.”

“Oh!” she grunted and caught my arm as one of her heels pierced the soft dirt and sank.

“You should take those off.”

“And walk around barefoot? Hello? Ever heard of hookworms and tetanus?”

“Ever heard of snapping your ankles as you fall flat on your face in the dark?” I asked as I squatted in front of her and slipped her foot out of the high heels.

“What are you doing?” she gasped, tumbling forward and grabbing onto my shoulders for support.

“Removing your obstacles.”

She landed a bare foot on the grass as I undid the other shoe. “So now I get tetanus?”

I looked up at her, my hands lightly stroking her ankles up to her calves. “You worry too much.”

“It’s a real risk. Ask Preeti.”

I stood slowly, moving up her body, and hovered above her.

“How…how far are we walking?” she asked.

“To the river.”

“In the dark?”

I nodded and handed her the shoes.

“Took these off and you won’t even carry them?”

“I’ll carry them,” I replied, swooped down, and threw her over the blanket on my shoulder.

Liya yelped. “Put me down!”

“So you can get tetanus?” I asked and walked toward the river.

She laughed. “I hate you!”

“You love it.”

She slapped my butt and then poked her pointy elbows into my shoulder as she arched her back. “Enjoying the view of my backside from over there?”

I slid my hand up the back of her thighs and tugged her dress down to keep her covered.

“This isn’t so bad,” she said.

“Oh, yeah?”

“Yeah.” She slapped my butt again. “Giddyap!”

“All right. You asked for it.”

Her next words were swallowed up in a scream as I took off at a full sprint.

She gripped my shirt, clutching for my waist, as the breeze broke around us. I ran the short distance to the riverside in no time, slowing only when the moonlit gleam on the water’s surface appeared.

I placed Liya on the grass, but she swayed away. I grabbed her by the waist to steady her and chuckled. “Are you okay?”

“You try doing that upside down.”
Sajni Patel, The Trouble with Hating You

“Love is enough. Its society's views and old-world thinking that broke everything.”
Sajni Patel, First Love, Take Two
