Mood Rants #1 Mental Health

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…

The Beach Life Memoirs #5

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 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…

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…

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…

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…
