    2020: The Year in Review

    “this is the way the world ends, not with a bang but with a whimper“ The Hollow Men by T.S. Eliot It’s exactly 15 days into January 2021 already, and I’m still feeling those 2020 blues. All we did last year was just sit inside and try to maintain calm before our heads start to explode. Last year was just one heck of a ride. And, I am grateful to survive that catastrophe. Phew.  Wasn’t 2020 supposed to be ‘Our Year’. I remember this because I was the one yelling- “My Year Finally”. Lord, what a disappointment. Hence, I made no resolutions, no expectations, just keeping it lowkey. Because, believe me, the moment universe gets to…

    Reality check from a 25-year-old

    Besides 2020 being a huge disappointment this year I celebrated many people turning 25 including me. Yes, I was mortified, if you wish to know. And, the more I clung to this, the more I drown into this overthinking drive. If you’re not 25 yet, I envy you.  But now that it’s been over a month, I am finally making peace with it. Well, I had to, the clock is ticking my dear. And, to be honest, I do not intend to waste any more heartbeats.  So, now that I have crossed my first milestone (well 25 is one biggi), I realised I have a lot to offer in terms…

    Self-care is the new survival

    Until she broke into pieces and there was no one else to fix her Broken by Esi Vanny In the times like these where the world around us has actually hit a pause, don’t let yourself get engulfed in this. Self-care is the most important thing that you can do for yourself. And, when I say self-care, I don’t just mean bubble bath, it’s much more than that (P.S. exclude gramming, no insta ok?). At this time of the hour, Self-care is only survival! Widespread of COVID-19 has actually turned all of our plans upside down. So, the question is how to cope up with this negativity and for longing…

    In the moment

    That rain in June

    In big black letters I write my name on them and the name ofthe village where I live.    I hope that someone in some strange land will find them andknow who I am. Paper Boats by Rabindranath Tagore Each raindrop is a flashback to the old times. Tapping my feet, as I ran up to the roof. Wearing a big old shirt and that smile on my face and in my heart. Feelings, such strong feelings, never felt before. As I look up and feel the velvet droplets falling from the white sky, kissing my skin and lighting me up deep inside. Dancing and twirling on the roof, singing…

  • First Chapter
    The Quest

    First Chapter…Just the beginning!

    A new belief in my system, some questionable thoughts, a new wave of emotions…   Your First Chapter could be anything. It can be a failure or an outset to an unlike journey. This blog is my first chapter. Soon, going to hit the best 25. Just wondering that one can always have more than one first chapter in life. Can’t we? For instance- The new job, last day at school, first solo trip, the break-ups and patch-ups. Can’t ignore those unforgettable actions, making the list go on and on. All these moments can lead to a story of a lifetime. And, when you trace back, it’s really these moments where…
