TLT Week #186: Passing Along

β€œOh, I’ve known you my kid; maybe a brunette than blonde, stood here with that same glow in her eyes, beaming with happiness; looked right into my eyes, without having to look upward like you though, for I too was a baby. Walked me to the places I’ve never been to, with the promise that…

Walks down the Memory Lane #1

As kids, we were allowed to sleep in on Sundays since it’s a no-madrasa-no-school day. When I wake up to the eastward window view at sunup, it was mostly because of the light rays poking on my eyes, or my mom’s tickling (nothing else worked on waking me up, and scaring wasn’t her style). The…

Facebook timeline so full of how important is mental health, how you should watch out for people around you and extend help, how you should ask for help or even cry for it, how people are ready to give help and details about symptoms, signs, and do and don’ts on depression. I guess it’s about…

TLT Week #95: 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.

  “Harder a wave hit the rocks, The higher it rises afterwards!” – Aishah Naaz ~Evenings are breathtakingly beautiful a scene here.

The Beach Life Memoirs #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 Memoirs #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 Algebra books,…

The Beach Life Memoirs #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! Jealous much? πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰), favourite book…

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…
