The Lighthouse Lighthouses are endlessly suggestive signifiers of both human isolation and our ultimate connectedness to each other. – Virginia Woolf ~So this is our lighthouse; yeah our college’s private beach has even a lighthouse of it’s own which has a breathtaking view from its top. One of the first things we did after coming…

The Beach Life Memoirs #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 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 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…

Finding Way Back to Myself

It’s been very long since I had done anything interesting.

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…
