Welcome Home

Home isn’t where the heart is; it is what captures a piece of your imagination and you place it in a special part of your soul. It is where you feel the safest and most comfortable. My home is more than a roof over my head: It is my people, my food, my favorite books,…

Cycle Of Life

There is nothing more simple or complicated than life itself. We all go through the waterfall of life: hesitation, denial, blame, acceptance and eventually submission. In between denial and acceptance, we tend to experience a gamut of emotions, mostly angst, betrayal, sadness, impatience and remorse. Then there are random acts of kindness. The world doesn’t…

The Bliss of Books

In my experience, bibliophiles tend to have the best noses. What is the correlation, you ask? Ask anyone who reads, they’d unflinchingly tell you how much they long for and love the smell of books, new or old, worn, fresh of the press or used. But very few take the pains to see the year…

The Worn-out Chair

We all have a favorite object of desire that we refuse to abandon. A lucky pair of socks, that cozy t-shirt or a rare book, each have a story to tell. Whether a hoarder or not, you cannot deny that somethings are too hard to let go off. It may be a car, a PJ…

Coffee, Anyone?

It’s been forever that I’ve been out and about. When I moved back home after a six-year long hiatus, it was time to let go of crammed weekends and meet my friend ant time they are free. Well, they are free alright, but alas, meeting is no longer feasible. Eating out and meeting over weekends…

Ideation Therapy

A bathroom or the loo is everyone’s safe haven. You can spend hours in there and people understand the pull of nature’s call. This confined space is uninhibited. Think of all the perfect sales pitches, the singing contest victories and dance moves that you’ve honed in your shower. In fact Archimedes had his Eureka! moment…

Unwind and Rewind

There is nothing loving than the love of grandparents and pets. Imagine being a in a rustic old house with your favorite old people and doggies that give you unconditional love? If I could be half the person my dog is, I’d be twice the human I am. Charles Yu

Binge Watch and Chill

Work from Home has given a new lease of life to OTT platforms. I have a little issue with patience; I can create crafts with the deepest concentration, but I’m over the affection for watching seasons and seasons of a never-ending series. I have similar inhibitions when it comes to movies with parts. Books (if…

Playtime

Our lives are full of games. When we were young, playing pretend games were innocent and fun. As we grow up, the games get murkier. Happy times are never ending, when we’re playing and pretending… Unknown Manipulation, to survive, belittle or dart ahead become a way of life. To pretend that this is a norm,…

When It Rains…

I am a Bombay girl through and through, but one thing I never could wrap my head around is how could anyone consider Bombay rains to be romantic? Rains to me has always meant claustrophobia of being in a closed and over-crowded train compartment, with a wet raincoat on. When on the streets, you are…
