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.  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…

Painful Remembrances #2

A year to the worst ever burn, and a lose that left a permanent void in all our lives. It was on 5th Jan 2016, I was (supposed to be) preparing for my Gate exams coming up, while I was actually goofing around reading other books and writing stuff. Usually my home will be all…

A Year Spent ‘Press’ing!

On November 24th, I completed a year with WordPress on this account. Yeah, I had other accounts too, one I deleted months before starting this one, another one abandoned years ago. I have been thinking to write an anniversary special rambling, but there were a few things that kept me busy. First of all, I’d…

The Storm in a Coffee Cup

So, I took a day off from work today, saying I’m sick. If you have read my rant from yesterday night you’d get a glimpse to my situation now. I’m not sad or down, but I just need some time to sort out things inside my head. I need to make some plans for future…

Random Rants of a Chilly Night

It’s been days I had some time for myself. Just to sit under the starry sky on this chilly winter night listening to my own thoughts.. it’s bliss. I have a lot of things going on my head. I have a lot of regrets too, already. I have to listen to the complaints of my…

‘Baby Steps’

I reminded myself. ‘One step at a time; Small, measured and careful…’ ~In light of some recent events in my life, I just wanted to keep myself in check. Some things need to take enough time so that we don’t end up with regrets later. Featured image taken few months back from mom’s garden. As far…
