Read : The Bench by Bala Iyengar, Blank Space

Bala Iyengar

The Bench is the first story of Blank Space. A story which conveys us the message that inspiration is not about winning or conquering our desires. But inspiration is all about contentment in life.

It is all about facing the truths of life without sadness, but remembering the memories on a positive note. Bala has given life to a Bench and it’s lifetime journey with a lovely couple.


Preethi Venugopala : ‘The Bench’ was the story that I liked most in Blank Space. The lyrical descriptions, the depth of the emotions that are conveyed through the few paragraphs, the characters…everything was memorable.

Sourav Ghosh : I loved it. Touched my heart.

Saurabh Mishra : Read it long back and somehow I felt that my story was coherent with it but just set in another spacetime(metaphorically). I loved the diction. it’s beautiful

Ruchi Chopra : The Bench- evokes strong emotions, celebrate passion of 2 souls….imagery is wonderful & vivid…diction is beautiful…I enjoyed reading it. Bala, best of luck!

Shail Raghuvanshi : Bala’s story explores the charm of sentiment and of nostalgia. It, so beautifully takes you back into time and draws you into the old world charm and beauty of love that is ever eternal, even after death. Thank you Bala.

Namita Sunder :  Soft, silken, soothing ‘the bench’ is like a fragrance you inhale and let it float slowly inside your being. Thanks Bala reading your story was a beautiful enriching experience.

Story : When You Trust… Trust Like a Child

child in airplane

A Flight was flying through the clouds Suddenly it lost the balance.

Everyone started shouting in fear. But, a small girl kept playing with her toy.

After an hour, the flight was landed safely. A man asked the girl, “How could you play with your toy when everyone else was afraid?”

The small girl smiled and said, “My dad is the pilot, I knew he’ll land me safely!!!”

Story : 47°C

47 Degrees Celsius

47°C, heat literally sucked away his energy. 1Km distance seemed like a marathon, when he reached the hotel for lunch.

A fresher, a small company, an unknown city, a rude boss and all the donkey works with no choice were the cursing ingredients of his life.

“Meals? 60 Rupees! No money? Then get out” the man at the billing table shouted at an old lady.

He looked at his purse – exactly 60 rupees and some coins.

He bought a meal token and gave to her. She reluctantly accepted.

He smiled and continued walking, the ATM was just three kilometers away.

Story : 55 Fiction : Cartoons Never Die

Cartoons Never DieHe was cheering Jerry to escape the chasing Tom, glued his eyes.

His sister wasn’t fighting over the TV remote. She remained silent, so did the others.

He smiled for one last time. Tears filled their eyes.

HIV was not his fault.

The doctor answered “Yes” to the question he asked once “Cartoons never die?”
