Renaissance

And when all of this is over, Can we start over again? Learning from the mistakes we did; Connect with things that actually matter; Value the blessing of being For when the virus is gone, Let’s fill that void with gratitude And let that too be as contagious, (only in a good light) ‘Cause the […]

Wall

I have built a wall around myself, I don’t allow anyone to enter it, Not because I don’t trust anyone. But life has taught me, time and again that whenever you come too close, they eventually, unfailingly, send you apart. And all you’re left with are some cracks in the wall which only reminds you […]

Dichotomy

I never understood the need for dichotomy, in whatever it is that we do In order to love a Messi, why does one need to hate a Ronaldo too? Why is it so hard to agree that things can co-exist? Why can’t I be interesting without being an extrovert? Can’t I like a thing/group and […]

Forever

  So darling, In between all the uncertainty and improbability existing amidst the microcosm of the universe Let’s for once just be.. Perhaps incomplete; celestially insignificant; and nothing to show otherwise Yet, exquisitely at peace —to have found a space-time in the vast universal fabric —to exist together, albeit for a small moment, but which was […]

Run

When Tom Hanks ran in the ‘Forrest Gump’, I felt it. He did not run from the sorrow, the pain nor from the overwhelming emotions as his life had hit a low. He ran because of it. I felt it because I could relate to it. I felt it because the thought of running the […]

She of the flight 6E

An early morning flight and a window seat, The sun rising above the clouds, in the Far East… There’s seldom anything as embalming as the rising sun, The beauty of a dawn is second to none. Or so I thought… It was a regular flight of 6E, where I saw a breathtaking irregularity! As calm […]

Separation

I recently re-watched the F.R.I.E.N.D.S’s episode where Rachael moves out from the apartment (Season 6 Episode 6- The One on the last night). There’s a scene when Rachel while finally leaving the apartment after reminiscing the bitter-sweet experiences of living with Monica, hugs and cries and then realizes how stupid it was as they were […]

Change

“How did you change so much?” One afternoon my mother asked. We were sitting in the living room of our house. I had come home for a festival. “You were such an irritable and petulant kid, only needing one innocuous thing to make you angry and cry for hours,” She said, laughing. It was true. […]

Flaws

Why do people say things they don’t mean? Why do you want me to believe something you are not? Why is it so important to make the world see you from one particular lens? Why do you care about what kind of vicarious ideals I wear, Why can’t we forget how many commonalities we share? […]

Quinn

Sometimes you need to lose in order to win. What would become of it, you don’t know; and hence you need to spin the bottle of life and face the music – It will always end good for you, So don’t just yet lose it. Because darling, this is no Disney movie, Do not expect […]
