When Expectations Make A Sound

Because it’s when the small becomes too big, And the big becomes too small, That the expectations set in And you lose it all. It’s not just you, And not just them. It’s a collective mess up That loses the most precious of gems. There wasn’t a solution That she couldn’t find. But there came…

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…


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’. 

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…


Standing at a crossroad, Wondering where each would go. Will the end of this one Be the beginning of joy, Or will it bring sorrow? The answers are veiled by uncertainty And I still stand here, Calculating possibilities. Slipping into the oblivion, I randomly pick a road. And all it does, Is lead to another…

Life is all about ‘your’ choices

“Life is the sum of all your choices” – Albert Camus Even though there are many who believe they are just playing with the cards life dealt them, life is actually what we make of it. The direction (or ambiguity) of our lives is determined by the choices we make every day. Big or small,…
