Back to School

Do you remember the longest association of your life? Mine was my school. I spent almost 13 years in the same institution and I if you go by my mark sheets, I wasn’t the smartest of the lot. But every class had that generous soul, the class clown, the mischief maker, the princess, the diva,…

Playing Time…

One of the most cherished memories of my childhood was this beautiful teak wood, championship grade carrom board. The old baby pink striker was embossed with a fish that had scales. Eventually, mom got us a pearl white one, which wasn’t as smooth as the pink one, so we never gave up on our old…

Nirvana

There is something inherently beautiful about faith. If you look closely at all religious teachings, there is a very layered overlap. Each culture explains moral and ethical implications of every action and decision we make. What sets them apart is the way in which these are explained, giving us an insight into the socio-linguistic fabric…

Cheap Thrills

Happy Holi everyone! The one thing I noticed is the colorful currencies across the world. After the demonetization, we have currencies of denominations that didn’t exist before. Along with that came new currency in colors such as chocolate, orange and purple. Another striking feature is that apart from the father of the Nation (Mahatama Gandhi),…

Lurking in the Shadows

There is something about masks that intrigues me. You already know that I am a closet romantic, and unfortunately, I haven’t been able to get the right book that makes me swoon inside my head. I ended up reading some incredily stupid “trashy” romantic novels for the month of love. Now, don’t get me wrong;…

Candle Light & Soul Forever

If there is one secret wish that everyone has, is having a perfect relationship. Why that translates to anything sexual has always been beyond my comprehension. Companionship, in any form, built on mutual respect, has been something that I seek from any close bond I create. Perfection, like affection is not a constant state of…

Little Less Conversation

This picture reminds me of a coming of age kind of story. By now, you would’ve realized that I am a person of words, and a content writer by profession. I tell stories of a different kind at work; they are my words, but not my thoughts. This takes me back to a time of…

Water Cooler Talks

So, I welcomed the new year (2019) with a book that I have been finishing to read for months now. The year that went by was by far one of the best I’ve had in ages; no it wasn’t the kindest, but it left me more equipped to be in control of myself. A year…

Weary Travellers

This has been a very strange year so far. When home is so far from where one dwells, there is so much travelling but you don’t really get anywhere. Torn between responsibilities and the warm relationships you left behind, you just don’t want to be alone… aren’t you alone most part of the year anyway?…

Around the World…

The life you have led doesn’t need to be the only life you have. ~Anna Quindlen Our happiest moments as tourists always seem to come when we stumble upon one thing while in pursuit of something else. ~Lawrence Block Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and…
