    On Gratitude

    by
    Clearly, the glory days for gratitude are here. It’s having its moment in the sun. Every popular psych or self-improvement piece seems to mention it. Apparently it’s the quick fix to happiness. Gratitude however, much as the miracle cure it is made out to be hasn’t really worked for me. In fact, often gratitude makes […]

    London for Less! Guest Post by Riddhi Mahimkar!

    by
    I’m really excited to introduce Riddhi Mahimkar as a guest blogger for BeyondBoredom. Trust me, it wasn’t easy getting her to write about her travels. She’s as lazy about documenting her journeys as she is passionate about travel. Unlike most of my other female classmates who are finding bliss in the arms of their new […]

    Waiheke Island

    by
    Lazing around at the Jumeirah Beach here in Dubai reminded me of Waiheke Island, near Auckland, probably one of the best beaches I have ever been to, so here are some of the pictures of the lesser known Waiheke Island. Waiheke is just a 35 minute ferry ride (under 50$) from downtown Auckland and is […]

    Merida – The Roman City in Spain

    by
    Merida is the small but beautiful capital city of Extremadura, Spain. It’s a city that takes you straight to glorious heart of ancient Spain. Friendly folk, engaged in their lively banter in cafes on the narrow streets, Roman ruins scattered across the city, the rich aroma of roasted meat in the air are captivating to […]

    My First Visit to a Mosque

    On Friday, I visited the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi. My first time at a Mosque and I was blown away by it’s majestic beauty. It is the eight largest mosque in the world and its design unites the cultural diversity of Islamic world, the historical and modern values of architecture and art. It […]

    The Acid Test

    by
    That’s incredible, pretty amazing, but I’m not sure I’d want to visit, I thought to myself putting down the paper and pondering over the article I’d just read. The headlines read ‘Acid attack victims join hands, open cafe near Taj Mahal in Agra’ I’d be too overwhelmed by the horrific nature of such violence. It … Continue reading The Acid Test

    Stay

    by
    I looked back and caught that tear, lingering in her eye, latching onto her fear, Her heart was tangled and not far from being torn, The moment had arrived, selfishly hers to call her own, The winds of change were raging a storm, ­And she couldn’t get the music to dance with her song.   […]

    Vagabond Wisdom – The menace of the media

    by
    ‘But is it safe?’ I asked my uncle. He had just been to Mexico, on holiday. He was a science professor in North America, and was now in India. ‘Yeah?’ He looked at me slightly confused. ‘Is it safe like you know to walk down the street alone?’ I probed a little more. The minute … Continue reading Vagabond Wisdom – The menace of the media

    Thank you! (Dream Reader)

    by
    Please forgive me if this letter sounds like I’m selling myself, no, wait my skills, or rather my profile to you. Job portals have done this to me. Forgive me if I sound like I am seeking approval and ignore my incoherent rambling. The countless applications that I have filled in anticipation of an interview […]

    What this is all about #blogging101

    by
    There’s no denying it, the blogs title is suggestive in a way. I am bored easily and it isn’t difficult to capture my interest. This blog is an attempt to get beyond that. To push through the mundane. To have a sense of purpose. Words are a powerful tool and this blog helps me slow […]

    You live. You learn.

    by
    2014 was a fantastic year. An epic year. A year where I haven’t regretted anything. Of course, there were decisions that I’ve sometimes second guessed. But it’s been backed with the maturity that taking bold decisions are a part of life. You win some and you learn some. That’s an important part of growing personally. […]

    The Devil of Dogma

    by
    “It’s so ironic you know.” What? I asked my friend taking my eyes of the skyline in the distance. He was wasted and we were slumped against the wall of the terrace. It was rather cold and windy. Winter was setting in. “People. We live in a world of bigots. I cannot accurately convey the […]

    Why so Racist, India?

    by
    Racism for some reason has always been the subject of my interest. It’s amazing how the colour of your skin can play a vital role in determining your place in the world. It’s also funny how people can love or hate you based just on that. We’ve seen the media rife with news about Michael […]

    Cause I will write a song for you

    by
                  When you’re feeling like a misfit, And people are looking down on you, You need to show some grit, even for just a bit Cause I will write a song for you.   When all your friends are gone, And there are no aces in the cards you’ve […]

    The Stoner Anthem

    by
        So darling, let me have just another puff, It’s been so long that I haven’t had that stuff, I know you’ve made your point, But darling, it’s just a fking joint, I don’t want to lie, Sometimes I just need to get high, You really seem to care about the damage it could […]

    Lucid Dreams 2014-11-13 16:34:41

    by
    Coming undone. It’s that time again, where we almost say good bye that time where we don’t know what we are in for So we stay lonely for a while, tears washing away our smiles But then we say that this is not what we want and wipe our eyes dry. We stay on, stay […]

    My Diet Experiment

    by
    Circa 2007: Your getting a little tummy mate, said my co worker mockingly. Annoying prick had a 6 pack. ‘Whoa, no chance mate, I’m too thin for that to happen. I just can’t put on any weight’ I replied, my pride hurt. ‘Whatever, that what everyone says at your age’ he said and walked away. […]

    Things I realised in 2013

    by
    This maybe a little premature, considering it’s not Dec yet when a list like this should typically come out. But Dec is always a busy month. Considering, all my bitches are coming down, it’s going to be tough to get anything on the blog. Although I have run through the possibility of this article having […]
