Onam Ashamsakal

I feel privileged to be born and raised with a very cultural diverse background. My parents were born in two different ends of Tamil Nadu, my father’s ancestral village is on the border of Kerala. I am Bombay-bred, and grew up with people from all walks, cultures and ethnicity of the world. Being an agrarian…

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 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, the…

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…

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…

Story Time

There is an inherent magic in the way words get woven into stories. Stories are all around us, waiting to be explored, analysed and learned from. There are so many facets of human nature available to analyse. I shared a very interesting web comic (which you can catch here) with a few of my friends,…

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…
