What’s your pattern?

Identify your pattern. There is always a certain pattern which is a recurring theme in your life. With constant interactions with young adults now-a-days and reflecting on my past, its all too eerie.All the time, life is throwing us challenges, and unless you learn the lesson which the situation is trying to teach you, its […]

Forever : Illusion. We don’t have forever.

Today morning, I heard my father talking to a friend. Apparently, someone had passed away in a tragic accident two days ago. When I enquired, I was shocked. It was someone I knew from years ago.. We had a brief interaction when we were teenagers. He had gone to drop his friend somewhere late at […]

Intuition – Don’t Ignore it

We often make this mistake. Of not trusting our intuition. It’s the feeling where you sense something gnawing inside you, inside your head. Most of the times, you sense it, but due to the fear of what other people will say, you tend to ignore it.Of what your family will say, you shove it under […]

Fear

Isnt it a very familiar feeling?  Fear. Fear predominated most of my actions, whether it be choosing a career or whether it be eating something.

There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch…

As a child, English was my most favorite subject in school. I often used to read books much more mature for my age ( I tried to read Jhumpa Lahiri’s The Namesake in the 8th or 9th std, and had all my relatives laughing at me ) I was also fascinated by idioms, the way […]

Shahid Kapoor – Can we all stop being judgmental arseholes?

Rant Sunday : Well recently after Koffee with Karan aired on where the lovely Shahid and Mira Kapoor were guests, the internet was stormed by shitty news which flooded my wall with incessant and unwarranted trivia and banter about the past love life of Shahid Kapoor. It was alright rather bearable till then when ubiquitous articles […]

The Palace of Illusions – Draupadi’s tale

So this is the first time I thought to write about a book I absolutely would recommend every Jane Eyre or Louisa Alcott fan. The Palace of Illusions, by the extremely talented Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni. Written in simple yet alluring language, she has described the life of Draupadi and the turn of events that lead […]
