The Vintage Vacation

Although everyone was skeptical about the entire trip plan for our romantic vacation which included countryside stay, local cuisine, gadget-free life and many other exciting yet purportedly dangerous adventures, the forest crossing at night on horseback was the one they found the most bizarre but we, per contra, were most excited for. All night he…

The Beach Life Diaries #4

  “Harder a wave hit the rocks, The higher it rises afterwards!” – Aishah Naaz ~Evenings are breathtakingly beautiful a scene here. The sun finally calling it a day and bidding adieu with the promise of returning very next day; splashing colours all over the sky. The sea reflects it all, making every goodbye memorable….

The Beach Life Diaries #3

Melt the Rock Heart πŸ’“ “How many waves for how long it might’ve taken for the sea to finally melt the rock down in the middle to meet the sandy shore? Who might’ve convinced the sea to try harder despite all the pain of hitting the rock over and over again, that someday the rock…

The Beach Life Diaries #2

The Invader “Sea is the most patient conquerer; it keeps invading the land ever so slowly that you won’t notice until it reaches your own feet.” – Aishah Naaz   ~ Yet another morning walk during mid semester exams a couple of months back; I went there early morning to study in peace with my…

The Beach Life Diaries #1

Bliss β€πŸ’• “Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.” – Rumi ~ My favourite place here in the college (oh yeah, we have a private beach!

The Shattered Story

How to read a shattered story? Sitting in an ordinary rusted general couch for unreserved in the Chennai Mail, crammed with passengers who complain about how it’s like the wagon tragedy (ofcourse they don’t know how wagon tragedy really was like); Munching on the staple food of the train – the Uzhunnuvada with a hole…

Lanterns of hope

Keep sending your share of light To the darkness, However small you fear yours is or However strong the darkness seem. ❀ ~ Well, I’d like to update about the recent turn of events in my life. After having had enough of corporate life and learnt enough lessons, I decided I should get back to…

Seeking Wisdom

Look down. Wisdom doesn’t always come from the skies. It can rise up from the ground too. Sitting at a bus stop with a lot of disturbing thoughts in my head, I glanced around for a distraction, which brought me this newfound knowledge. There’s a family sleeping few feet away. On the pavement of an…

Finding Way Back to Myself

It’s been very long since I had done anything interesting. I got a lot more lazier than ever, waking up at 9 in the morning and regretting on not doing anything productive apart from the boring office work every damn day and still wasting the rest of the day.Β Β The only exception to this boring routine…

Life in a Golden Cage

There was a strange uniformity in everything; the energy drained faces, the dresses, the rooms, routines, the walls, caretakers; well, that’s about literally every boarding school. Though we had a well defined time table for our life there – reminding constantly about it by the ear splitting sound of that bell – I liked to…

Let’s Talk about the Lines!

Every now and then I see these news, controversies and debates, my brain start this never ending thought series on lines. Yes, boundary lines ofcourse. No I’m not talking about India Pakistan border line, not because I think it’s definite – obviously it’s not. Indians believe Kashmir is India’s and Pakistanis claim it’s theirs; see…

The Inner Cry

Life has become so boring again. Back to the old frustration and hopelessness. To add, my application for leave got declined by manager saying there are many deployments aligned for that week. Well, today by all means was such a bad day, and the climax was the sound that came out of the tap, instead…
