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.”

On The Rocks!

The word ‘Magic’ can be associated with very few things in the world. The things that you look forward to all the time because when you did it for the first time, it was magical. For example, first kisses are always magical, first hugs as well, if done properly. In 1999, I was thirteen yearsContinue reading “On The Rocks!”

Hope

Twenty four years is a long time. One doesn’t get born and grow up to be twenty four years old. 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”

Kiss of Love

Aniket was looking for his one chance since morning to kiss Kaajal whereas she had kept herself busy with something or the other, and necessarily so. Managing the wedding of your younger sister is no small task. Each andContinue reading “Kiss of Love”

The thought of spending a Sunday alone dreaded Javed so much that even on Saturdays, which were half days at work for him, he would sit in his office till six, waiting for Roohneet to finish her work and meet him up on her way backContinue reading “420 Minutes”

Why I Do What I Do

How do you feel when people advise you? There are three kinds of people in this world. Firstly, there are those who hear the advising person uttering just one word. Bla. Secondly, there are those who actually hear what the advising person is saying and feel that he is making a lot of sense. Thirdly,Continue reading “Why I Do What I Do”

Fruits & Seeds

A dozen bananas, five chickoos, three guavas, two boxes of strawberries, two pomegranates, one huge canary melon and lots of grapes. This is my menu for today. Over the last few months, I have spent more money on fruits than on anything else. I have delayed holiday trips, I have avoided eat outs, I haveContinue reading “Fruits & Seeds”

Valentine Lost

“Doesn’t she look like Aishwarya Rai?” I said to Rajan. She was gorgeous. I have always had this habit of falling in love with beautiful things, words, people and I fell for her on the first day I saw her. It was the first day of the sixth standard in school, back in 1996. TheContinue reading “Valentine Lost”
