What Now?


I’m done with college. I’m also back to my hometown. As I woke up late, after an unplanned ten-hour sleep, there were two things going on in my head. First, a plethora of guilt. Second, the question that the guilt kept asking me, “what now?”

Of Cities, Cons, Caution and The Cycle of Circumspection


I’ve had a multitude of experiences that made me genuinely wonder about the more significant things during my three years in, the bigger cities. So, I can’t say this was the one that matters. However, this happens to be the most recent one. It is a couple of experiences to be honest which make sense only when taken together, like wine and cheese or peanut butter and jelly.

The Shoebox of Memories


When I was a somewhat younger version of the child I am today, I found an empty shoebox lying around in my cluttered house. Now as a child, I was filled with more sentiment than I was with logical thought and so I kept a rock in that shoebox. It was a small piece, but it was the start of an archive.

I’ve Been Away: Here’s The Why And What Comes Next


I’ve been away. I haven’t written on the blog in three weeks, and I just missed this Tuesday as well. In my defence, however weak it looks, I had my college valediction. After coming back home, I took a shower, and I am here writing because even if Tuesday is over, I had to get a post out before I go to bed. I had different ideas for this post given the small hiatus I’ve taken...

You Don’t Find Your Passion, You Do Things Passionately


Passion is the poster boy of the 21st century. No discussion about a successful life forgets to include the dreaded keyword. However, there is no magic mantra to living a life that is fulfilling in every aspect; even if there was, I’m sure it would be longer than a single word. I love writing. I love putting words together. Is writing my passion? I’m not so sure, yet. Do I do it...

The Feeling Of Attending Concerts, Live Gigs and Performances


I looked up at the stage. Lights were flickering all over, changing colours from red to orange to white to green to purple. With each change in hue, one of my favourite bands gleaming as their music sets the tone of the entire field, overcrowded with people swaying together, not a care in the world. The city was Pune, the festival was VH1 Supersonic, and the band was alt-J. That was when I first...

Remembering Cybercafés: Where Did My Childhood Go?


I’m not usually a perpetrator of “I was a 90s kid” statements. However, I’ve been thinking and reminiscing about something that is almost non-existent today. Hell, I haven’t seen one up and running properly since years. When was the last time you visited a cybercafé just to browse the internet? If you’re reading this, I’m pretty sure the answer is...

I Got Inked: The Why, What And How Of My Modified Semicolon Tattoo


If you asked my opinion for tattoos back when I was in school, you’d get a very hostile response. I was vocally against body art. I’m not sure why that was the case. I never had reasons to justify my dislike for them, and even in hindsight, I almost fail to explain why I reacted the way I did. Contrastively so, I got a tattoo some ten days back. What changed? A lot.
