"Poverty is the parent of revolution and crime.” — Aristotle, Greek philosopher -The work in progress- Ink has always been a medium I wanted to explore. This piece of art and concept blew me while I was browsing the net for a topic to start scribbling on. This ended up really well with a mixed... Continue Reading →
[Monitor beeping....] [Muffled breathing...] Her body fell into a deeper abyss. Hey eyes felt jaded. She fell into a deeper state of trance. Could it be all the anesthesia that made her feel this way? From the infinitesimal peek between her eyelashes and skin, she could see a faint image of her parents. They looked... Continue Reading →
That was a beginning of my love for the South Indian creations. They are more content driven, touching and definitely leave a hangover. If it wasn’t for that one evening of crazy, I don’t think I’d ever truly enjoy my first experience of a south Indian film.
|| Just like the sun and the moon, one a star, the other a large mass of rock and dirt, people feel connected to one another despite of their differences. They say the first impressions last. I say they are judging too fast. See how the unknown merges into the known. Love is tangled in... Continue Reading →
It's hard to lose someone. You imagine you will never get over the pain. It will hurt less someday and you will survive. As irreparably broken, gutted, hollow as one may feel, it does not kill you. While it may feel as though a dementor has sucked every last hint of happiness from your chest, you will have days where you think of them and you do not cry. There will even be days you smile while you remember them. Be thankful for those days, which fend off despair like my personal little patronus charm. I know that is what they would want for me, and how they would want to be remembered — with love and joy instead of pain and tears.
Remember, when the peacock struts his stuff, he shows his backside to half the world. - Herve Wiener
The older I'm getting, the more I'm failing to understand how emotions work. That ex who is a father of a child, still confesses to you being his first love. That friend with whom you were so close knitted with, now barely a like on the Gram story. That long distance with whom each second... Continue Reading →
You cannot heal in the same environment that got you sick.You will still be art, even when they stop admiring.So darling, take the brush and own it as the sky and clouds are your canvas.~oishmortal~

Way before we were in a situation of learning more in crisis than in comfort, I came across this moment I captured a few months earlier on my way back home from work. This grandfather came to drop off his grandson everyday without fail at 2 PM in the blaring heat, rain, or chilly afternoons.... Continue Reading →

The 27 year old me wanders. Being lonely wasn't just what I enjoyed. It's a solitude I found after being out there and being let down. As humans, we find it a mandate to socially connect and roam in groups. Are we all not doing okay now?The soul that sees beauty always works alone. It... Continue Reading →

She lurked through the window of the swank shop near her home. It falls on the way back home where she boards her bus from. Don't give up: Stay strong She sighed on seeing the price tag.

I lay here still, As the dawn breaks, Thinking over my past... all the things I regret, Not sure if I want to look forward to another day, What is so great, I cannot say, There are real people conquering their quests, Achieving their one dream, I do not even have one, Mine concur of...

There she stood in front of the mirror, She could see her bed neatly done in the reflection, That night phased in and out of terror, Taking refuge in her parents room - the floor felt warmer, How could she be so broken?
