You Have To Read These 6 Stories Before You Turn 30!


If you’re in your late 20s and are kind of facing an existential crisis over the fact that you’re going to be 30 soon, don’t worry, we know the feeling! But as everyone who has turned 30 has ever said, it is a decade much better than your 20s. You’re not as confused, frazzled, or naive anymore, so this really is the time you can enjoy your youth without a worry in the world (well, let’s just say different worries than before.) 

This is the time you should make new friends, re-connect with family, and begin this wonderful journey. Need a little inspo?

We’ve got you covered!

Here are 6 Indian short stories you have to read before you turn 30: 

1. Saturday Night In. And Out!

stories 

If you’re thinking of starting a family or already have one, this story could quite possibly bring tears to your eyes. After having two daughters, their parents were not ready for the unique set of challenges this new life would bring for them, including how to manage toddlers on a Saturday night when everyone else their age is out and about in the city! 

2. Unmotivated, Unemployed, and Unhappy

stories

We’ve all been there: unmotivated, at a crossroads in our lives, and unhappy about our current job. This is just a part of life. However, it is extremely important to find yourself when you’re going through this period, otherwise, you could be putting the rest of your life at stake. No one knows this better than the old man at the park who constantly seeks out people to give them advice about life. Read his story to know why discovering and coming to terms with yourself is so important! 

3. How to Get out of Plans

stories 

Only one word is needed to describe this title: relatable. Follow the story of our protagonist, as she longs to get out of the office and spend time with herself, but no one seems to understand her plight. They all want to get together, even on holidays, and there is nothing more she wants than to get out of these plans. So, she comes up with a brilliant idea! If you’ve been in the same position as her, we recommend you take notes… 

4. Back to the Future

stories 

Sometimes, it’s healthy to take a step back and reflect on the past: what you did wrong and how you can change things for the better. In the same way, it’s also good to think about the future, by taking lessons from our past. Follow as our protagonist ponders over the future, his life, family, work, and even old age homes while being stuck in traffic. In a way, it’s kind of therapeutic. 

5. Love in the Time of Dating Apps

stories 

Humorous but real, this story tackles the dangers of catfish given the current surge in dating apps. Do you even remember going out on dates the old fashioned way, set up by friends or colleagues, and getting to know the person only when you see them for the first time? Well, whatever it is, the times have changed, and it’s important we do too… 

6. Birthdays, Ages 10 to 70

stories 

Don’t you ever wonder how much celebrating birthdays has changed? From counting down the days to dreading getting older, there’s just something about this day – even if you don’t want to make a big deal out of it, it’s a thing. Read our main hero’s plight as she grappled through this day, experiencing the nuances that come with each passing year, and decide for yourself if this is a day worth all the hype. 

We hope you like our recommendations! If you have any more stories based on the themes of getting older and riding the tide of life, do let us know in the comments.

We love hearing from you 🙂
