Wonder

I wonder what motivates people. Is it the unknown feeling of accomplishment? Or may be the urge to know the unknown? What is unknown? Everything that we do not know, and it is so much. One lifetime is too less to know everything there is. People don’t even roam around the entire world and yetContinue reading “Wonder”

Surprised, not so much.

I have been surprised multiple times today. So much that I have had to take out time to put it in writing because I didn’t want to lose the essence of this feeling that is with me since last night. It feels as if I am on a constant high since the two beers IContinue reading “Surprised, not so much.”

Non Existential Tomorrow

Four months ago, I decided to write a blog post every alternative day and I ended up not writing even one during all this time. I suck at meeting deadlines and yet I arrive everywhere right on time.

It takes five stable governments in India, five five year plans, five green revolutions, two hundred and sixty four months. Just think of how much and what could happen during that time. So many peopleContinue reading “Hope”

Time

Have you ever wondered about the design of time? Well, I have. It exists as naturally as the constant vibration of the cosmos, and as artificially as the tick of the second hand of a wall clock. The passage of time reflects in everyday life as effortlessly as breathing. Time serves the same purpose toContinue reading “Time”

The Torn Earlobe

‘I didn’t mean to tear apart his earlobe!’ I said to my cousin. ‘Oh comeon! You continuously hit him right on his ear!’ He said, reminding me that it was me who was in trouble, yet again. ‘So, what do we do now?’ I asked my cousin who was equally terrified. ‘Let’s go to NowsheraContinue reading “The Torn Earlobe”
