If you’re reading this Son, know that I love you

I hope everyone is staying strong and safe! My own eulogy would have been different. But I lost my uncle (brother's father) most recently. I tried to express what he felt and how he would want his son to think of him now that he's gone. Always praying for a better life for wherever he is now.

Adrift

[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 →

Bangalore Days

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.

The last call

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.

Not-So-Casual

It was 3 AM, I was covered under the same sheets as the man who lay next to me. The fan was switched off. It was almost the end of winter and my body unexpectedly shivered. I felt a cold wind run down my spine. I turned around and looked over at him. He was... Continue Reading →

Holding onto a string of hope

It was just about sunset. She loved to sit in her balcony with her cup of tea, watching the people taking a stroll, kids playing, the vegetable man selling on a cart. She just loved this ME time and craved it each day. Today she seemed low. Her parents were fighting in the other room.... Continue Reading →

The unwithered smile.

On a sunny afternoon, I accompanied my sister for her performance at Nandan for Rabindranath Tagore's birthday celebrations. Nandan has always been a super favorite place for me as it is the hub of different forms of cultural exhibits. I was basically accompanying my sister to capture a video of her performance. I secured the... Continue Reading →

Taxi… Yellow taxi 🚖

On a blaring hot summer morning, I woke up to my boss's text. "Where are you?" Shit..... I forgot about the quarterly meet. Within 30 mins, I rushed out of home checking for an Uber. The surge price almost gave me a heart attack. Just then a yellow taxi stopped by. Since the app based... Continue Reading →

Lost in her own city of Joy!

Its been four years in the city already. I feel tired and very mentally exhausted. Everything around me feels the same. Mundane and tasteless. I feel entrapped within myself. My own body has started to wear out on me. I look atleast five years older than my age. It’s true what people say, a smile... Continue Reading →
