Month of May

May is a month of May. :’) I couldn’t help but smile at it again and again. Is it true that “May” brings you many possibilities? And many “Maybe(s)” come together? Well, things were quite different each year. Every year has something new to bring, specially realisations. Every passing year leaves you with realisations on…

Mr. Briefcase finally Answered

I saw the walls blurring that day. My fictional character as though wanted to retire and I had to let go. I didn’t want to let go but I had to respect the free will. The reason why Mr. Briefcase played an important role had now ceased to exist. All the reasons that contributed to…

Well, that happens with everyone. No worries there. I found a pattern in my wrong choices, I trusted people…

Writing Everyday (Possible?)

While many of us think reading books are underrated, I found someone who thinks otherwise. According to that person, you don’t need a book’s help to be able to write. I strongly feel that books are more like the energy drinks that we constantly need to consume to be able to write, to add, express….

Meeting with Shade

Let’s call this person “Shade”. This post is completely fictitious. Written on purpose. Subjected to introspection. Do not deep dive unless you want to indulge. Statutory warning by the blogger, it has nothing to do with the law. 1. Hi Mr. Shade, how are you? I am very well, thank you. May I know why…

Things End Eventually

No matter how long you hold on to something or how badly you want things to be with you forever, life gives you all the chances to realise that, “Nothing lasts forever“. I came in terms with that reality yesterday. I was hit by few instances where I found the truths that we believe in,…

I was losing out on Writing

Have you ever felt that you are losing something, that one thing you always cared about? I have been there, from the zone of being utterly fascinated by it to being so oblivious to it that I didn’t care at all. Call it self acclaimed lethargy or excuses of ‘no time’… I was in my…

Thousand miles away, I see us

I was reviewing my past posts here. I had a purpose then, now it seems all deviated and diverged, explaining why I haven’t been writing as much lately. I felt that my blog posts weren’t read and wasn’t reaching the right audience. My elderly friend explained on how I should be keeping my purpose and…

Let’s talk about the ice cream that I had today. I saw two same shades of yellow ice-cream ahead of me. I was making combinations of what all it could be. Mango. Kesar. Badam. But, guess what it turned out to be…both were mango. Coming to the point. Just because of the colour I happened…

Diwali as it is

Diwali has been joyous, filled with excitement and energy. With great enthusiasm and love, we celebrated it all together. Many bursted crackers, some turned eco-friendly and made it more delightful by lighting diyas. What is really important is that we propagate the sense of festivity. It isn’t just about sweets, bursting crackers and just about…

Accused reality

Not so long ago I read a post about how for some dreams are far better than reality and for others who are not ready to accept reality how it is. Probably, reality is something they aren’t able to distinguish with what they are seeing. Some say that seeing is believing. But, what if you…
