The sign off

The sign off. The final goodbye. Probably the last time I see most of you. From the opportunity that walked in, To the next thing that walked out, Good or bad, Grateful! To all the times we have spent, To all the memories we made, Good or bad, Cheers! For all that you’ve taught me,…

Mumbai sojourn

Long back there was a statement made by someone and that someone was absolutely right when he said, “Mumbai doesn’t go too well with everyone.” To be honest, it is a place that either grows on you and you become the ‘local trains’ master or you simply just ‘work’ here; I fall in the latter…

Guts over fear

“Life is a roller coaster ride. Scream or enjoy the ride.” Whoever said that life isn’t easy, is absolutely right. It is that roller coaster ride that you can’t excuse yourself out of. It is that ride that doesn’t come with a set of safety instructions. You just need to do what you have to…

Acknowledge

There are innumerable times when one does everything they can to make another human feel good – friends or foes; they’re human after all and you think making them feel good is something you’re bound to do. But all this while, keeping ‘you’ and everything that relates to you on the back seat, did you…

The twenty something

Is nothing but, AWKWARD. “Growing up is overrated.” A saying we have all heard innumerable times before, but never believed in until we actually grew up. Sounds a bit complicated? Well, that is what growing up is – complicated. An adult is basically someone who has developed fully – physically and mentally. In other words,…

Date or wait?

There is one thing that I have realised over time, I’m really bad at dating. Well, not all that bad when it just starts but pretty pathetic when I realise it isn’t what I want. Today, the word ‘date’ can send shivers up my spine in less than fraction of a second; something that even…

Not made for this

(Nor For That) Not made for friendships, Because I am tired of all the drowning ships. Tired of being there, Even when there is no one when it comes to me Because if it is me, life walks in without a knock. Not made to be a soul sister, Because when it comes to having…

Time out

Time Out I need some time off. I need to feel liberated again. I want to get out of the 9 to 6 rut – please; To feel the cold breeze, That the walls of the office don’t let in even on a lease! I want to go on a long furlough And not be…

The independent woman

“Who is she?” Depending on what you’re looking for, she could be just about anyone around you – probably the woman standing beside you or the one who just walked past. Here’s a definition that comes to my head almost immediately.. An independent woman is the one that lives by her own rules, likes to…
