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. 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…

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…

Hope

Dark clouds have cried down, There can only be sunshine now; To blaze what remains… ~Another try on haiku, for Ronovan’s haiku challenge for this week using the words ‘clouds’ and ‘sunshine’. Featured image taken from the terrace on an evening just after a heavy rain. Pune rains are like this, sudden unexpected pour downs…

Daydream

​”No issues mate, good work.”  Said the tester. “Tling”  He woke up from his catnap to the list of issues just came by mail. ~Simply the life of a developer. I always wonder, whether these testing people are given special training on torturing a developer. How does they manage to show up with an issue…

The Girl Who Blinked at the City Lights #1

Life teaches things the hard way; that is, experience and learn. Impact has a lot to do in life. How hard the hit was, decide how well you learned. Sometimes life puts you in a position that you have to pause and think, “what’s next?”. Then again, you make the wrong decision even after all…

Broken

I wanna stand in the rain, Wanna get wet and soaked in; So that I can cry like a baby, And no one would ask me why!   I wanna run as fast as I can, Find some faraway mountain; So that I can scream out loud, And no one would care as to why!…
