    I’d forgotten.

    I had forgotten that I couldn’t live without music. Without the beats filling the walls, my ears as I slept, as I woke. I forgot that I loved lyrics. That I felt each word like a shot to my heart. I forgot that I thought in poetry. That I used to think. No longer. I […]

    Welcome to The Office.

    If you do any of these things, trust me I understand your pain. Truly. When you have to come early and stay late at office not because you have work but because you’re expected to. When it’s perfectly acceptable for people to have an in-person meeting during the weekend for status updates. When your Whatsapp […]

    What is that one moment that you carry with you forever? That one moment which is always your go-to instant when everything was gilded in gold and time seemed still. For me there were thousands. Thousands of memories where my belly fluttered and my head swam. Maybe from excitement, maybe from awe. I have gaped […]

    Don’t listen to them

    They’ll be the ones who make an effort to come and talk to you, not because they care, they pretend to. Because they want to hear some news from you. They talk in such a nice and unassuming manner, you’ll be fooled into thinking they’re good. They talk so softly, so sweetly you’d almost miss […]

    Monsoon Memories: A Poem

    The streets keep gleaming, I can feel the ghosts cheering The sounds that can be heard, Echo in the ear Dripping, dropping, swishing, slashing Life keeps still as calm Thrum of strings Be faintly heard, and Disappear into the night Hopes belong to loves lost long Breaths of life fill the air As minds open; […]

    Monsoon Memories: A Note

    Hi Guys, I’m sharing an old poem and my notes on it that I had published when Blogger or Blogspot was the trending WordPress. 🙂 Hope you enjoy! The rain brings out the poet in any one of us. The dripping sounds, the quiet and muffled whispers, the damp moods. The raindrops flow gently, […]

    Office aka Arctic Circle

    The first one hour would be fine, because you would be too busy with work to notice anything. It’s when your energy and time starts slowly sliding into the second wind phase that it creeps upon you. And creeping is right. The chill starts at your feet and fingers. You wouldn’t notice it at all. […]

    Is it ever gonna be enough?

    Hello! I was doing research for myself, making a note of things I would ideally want to buy if I had a 100,000 bucks… A hundred thousand sounds too much when you have to spend on a phone or a laptop, but sounds too little when you have a bigger student loan to pay off!!! … More Is it ever gonna be enough?

    Insurance for my Phone?

    You know those times when you eat your own words? Yeah, I had those last week. My colleague was looking out to buy a new phone and he kept saying he wanted an iPhone. An iPhone in India, means you’re rich. It means you spent nearly 1,00,000 Indian Rupees for a phone. Who pays a … More Insurance for my Phone?

    Head Against the Wall

    Are there times when you are so exasperated that you just go and put your head against the wall and curse in a low voice? Well, I’ve been having them A LOT lately – especially last week. This is the tail end of a two-hour long discussion with a colleague to whom I was explaining … More Head Against the Wall

    You Keep Going.

    When you’ve waited and waited, and see that neither your time nor your willingness to wait meant nothing to them, that’s when you stop. When you’ve seen so many of them and none of them prove you wrong in your belief that they’re all liars, that’s when you stop. When you’ve held on too long, … More You Keep Going.

    Thanks for that!

    Hey to the person sitting right next to my cubicle. Guess what, it’s been a delight listening to you diss me. Your euphemisms for me like “expert”, “specialist”, “gold medalist” etc are all just “heartwarming” to listen to. I guess you think you’re all that and I assure you, you are what you are – … More Thanks for that!

    Do you know what Heaven is? Heaven is opening your wardrobe and seeing the clothes you bought for yourself using your own money. Do you know what Heaven is? Heaven is coming home after a long, tiring day and seeing there is tea ready for you. Do you know what Heaven is? Heaven is knowing … More Heaven

    Choosing to not choose

    I had always thought great of those who pursued their dreams and had turned their backs on responsibilities…more importantly societal pressure. But then I remember that they gave up many many other things for that one single goal of theirs. I honestly will tell you, though I would love to live a life carefree forever … More Choosing to not choose

    On Moving & Moving On

    It’s not really a thing I can boast of, but…I pack really well. I am a great PACKER. It might be because of all the times I moved, the countless hours I have spent just fitting things where they weren’t or maybe the countless scrapes,nicks and curses followed by a deep rooted satisfaction that I … More On Moving & Moving On

    Why God, why?

    There are always times in your life when you plan, plan, plan so much that ultimately it never happens. And you throw your hands up and say in exasperation – Why God, why?! So me and my friend decided to leave from work early (Okay…maybe I can’t call it leaving early, since we left our … More Why God, why?

    The Mask Becomes You

    Hi Guys, It’s been an eventful yet calm New Year. With many changes coming in, I’ve been in this pensive mood for a while now. It started when a colleague assumed that the mask I don at the workplace is how I really am, and when I realized that my mask had become the way … More The Mask Becomes You
