The one that’s always going to stay. Happy Birthday Mom!

We’ve had our differences, We’ve had some fights. Going through it all, We turned things bright. You became the one I’d turn to, Every time I came away with no clue. You became the person I looked up to, Every time I needed to know what’s true. Because, You’re brighter than us all, Yet calmer…

From The Hills Of Dharamshala

So I recently embarked on a little vacation with a friend of mine – well, after almost 2 years of ‘hey! Let’s plan a trip’ and probably touring the entire world over Skype chats. While we didn’t go all that far, we did visit a beautiful place called Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh. Here’s a stupid…

She.

She’s looking for someone. Someone to take care of her, someone to tell her she’s perfect. Someone who can be with her through thick and thin. Little did she realise that this someone was with her all along. This someone was no one else but ‘she’. 

Hustle

Good things come to those who hustle. Little did I realise I would be standing here and repeating the same line to others who asked me why I never really took a break and why I had to just keep going. Because hustling is a way of life and you start to love it as…

(Un)Employed For An Year And Loving It!

I chose to go remote professionally about an year back. There have been those who doubted my decisions, those who supported it through and through. But here’s why I think this ‘unemployment’ is suiting me and why I am going to remain so for a few more years. 

Don’t Need A Break.

There are times when I know I just want to go away for a vacation – a pretty long one, if you ask me truthfully. But there is a reason I don’t need a break from life right now and there’s a reason why I am not going to for a while.

I grew up, didn’t I?

Life is considerably funny. There are times when your near and dear ones tell you how you’re their little kid and the same moment, you’re expected to act like a grown up for the outside world. Well, I certainly did grow up, didn’t I?

It takes what it takes

Dreams don’t just come true in a day. You need to work hard; rather, you need to work harder than you ever thought you would. It really does take what it takes to make things work for you. They’re your dreams and there is no way someone else can run them for you. 

What’s age got to do with it?

“You’re not old enough to say something like that.” “Before we move ahead, how old are you exactly?” “You’re in your 20s’! That’s it?” “When you talk it doesn’t seem like you’re a 20-something.” To be honest, these questions are just as irritating as asking for my sexual preferences while I’m just signing up on…

Forever (or not)

“Life is fragile, handle it with a prayer.” Amidst all the posts talking about the Nepal earthquake – how many people died, how many building collapsed, what remains, what doesn’t and what’s being done to help the people there, you’re often left to wonder, is there any such thing as certainty? Browsing through the various…
