I boarded the bus, thinking about how the first week of my stay started with an old cranky man and how the last day ended with the blessings of a beautiful, polite old woman; how at the beginning of my day, I was short on money and how by the end of it, I had sufficient money with me. Funny how things eventually do work out in a mysterious way!
like a bird in a cage, slowly exhaling my inner rage, I lead a life, or rather a mere existence, I correct; trapped in the four walls of monotony, "sacrifice your present, and your future you will protect". silently crying out the love, the burning fire, the desire, "my heart lies there, not here!", there,...

I have started to slowly lead a life of a day dreamer with head somewhere in the mountains in this crowded hustle bustle life of a city, a city which is becoming more like a four walls cage to me day by day.
Crippling and stuttering, hiding I walk in public shushing the voice inside me. Thumping and shuddering calming down the race inside me, Watching the world with my eyes "how do they excel perfection so right?" Their hair so long and silky Mine too short and shabby, I walk around murdering not someone but Something affecting... Continue Reading →

i was just a regular passerby passing you by daily thinking, wondering that amidst all the regular slim grey skyscrapers, you, with your different beautiful structure, with your tangerine and salmon hues confidently stand erect. catching my eye, setting an example for us dumb humans who cover up our unique and settle for the ordinary....

You looked beautiful In a blue summer dress Blonde hair, curled up in a bunTrudging alone, making your way, in those tangerine flip flops. You, woman, seemed like a breeze I can never feel in this dusty city's heat. I was looking at you, admiring you, accepting you in my country, But, unlike me, I... Continue Reading →
आसरा/ out of all the battles she faces in a day, the hardest one is when she finally lie down in bed and try to sleep. The day's struggles often make her not pay heed to her most difficult battle because the world's noises and the people somehow make her forget about it. . .... Continue Reading →
/A step inside the metro Squeezing self, adjusting Balancing on toes as I stand On the floor, amidst the crowd, I look around. Tired faces, heavy shoulders Their eyes speak the tales of exhaustion Living life in a spiral, running running Getting nowhere, As they work 9 to 5 behind the desk Superior yelling, client...

/caged The wings flutter A struggle, the art she creates The meaning? The reason? It's all in her head To set free, to clear the gray Breaking the bars, the shackles Of the prison her mind has create A rebel for her life Her feet on the ground, Watch her breakway.
//when she was born, I was afraid to hold her. When I held her, She grabbed my finger With her delicate little twinkie And oh! The glow my heart felt The innocence in her eyes made me melt. When she was a kid, She used to cling to me when I used to come back... Continue Reading →
//Pain is inevitable. It will take various forms But it will exist... still. Earlier it was the deep, empty void Now it is the one who has filled this void Close but far away Creating yet another void in me Waiting for him to fill it yet again//
sadly they never considered the possibility of it being the other way round. That because of what I call "anxiety", I might be having such sleep and food habits.
And this is how two hoomans, with a dank sad heartbreak, ache and stabbed history, not looking for love, found love.
That one night I fell for my happy pill.
My love for my brother, my lust for wandering and my thrill for the mountains made me travel solo all the way to Dehradun at a huge risk.
It was like someone from the future time travelled and came knocking on our door just to tell us, "hey! everything will be okay."
(might seem like tiny things to be happy about) but hey! we should find happiness in the little thing, right? I am starting to find mine. 🙂
Reality check: no jungle is smooth and easy.
Howdy! I hope all of you are having a happy Sunday. This post marks the end of the first month in my concrete jungle. You know that ball of fear and fright which exists inside all of us. Right? What happens when some challenge or a new thing touch that ball? It shivers. It shivers so... Continue Reading →
Yesterday at the lecture, I and my batchmates were asked an ample lot of these questions by sir and damn! the silence and the vagueness of the answers he received. We all were lost. That little interaction taught me why it is necessary to ask these questions to ourselves every day - it gives us directions.
introverts hold the real power in this world where people cannot stop talking and judging mindlessly.
when you assume something about me, you make an ASS of both YOU and ME.
I still remember how anxious and "in my own shell" I was on my first day, constantly believing that I will not be able to fit in and the upcoming two years will be difficult - All this before my journey in this concrete jungle started.
It has been a week since I joined Amity and I think it is safe to say that it is an organised concrete jungle. Let me explain this idea to you.
“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” ― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist A week ago I read this book 'The Alchemist' by Brazilian author Paulo Coelho. There are many references made to omens in this book. Many of you who don't know the meaning of omens.. it... Continue Reading →
Hello, all. How have you guys been? It has been a long time, I know right? Anyway, what prompted me to come back here and write something was a place I usually love to call Home, the real Home. Every time I visit that place, I either learn something valuable or just feel things which... Continue Reading →
"should she say hi to her? or should she not?" after 5 years, on the metro they sat, face to face, constantly looking down, aware of each others existence just metres away. all the memories, the dreams, the nightmares came flooding in within seconds, the reason right in front of her, her bones shivered, but...

look at the bigger picture and not just keep all our eyes and senses focused on selling a particular product. For example, if I sell hiking boots, I should not define its marketing in terms of just selling hiking boots, but market it as an org concerned with outdoor exploration and adventure and thus diversify!
