I've been pretty clear for my religious stand throughout the years. This is something I've had utter clarity on since forever. Even though I've remained malleable and flexible in everything else in my life and personality. … [Read more...] about I’m Not Religious, Atheist Or Agnostic, I’m On A Journey To Find That Out
Inspired by a real-life incident, I wrote a short story called The Cab Ride on Christmas Eve. Twice. I sent the second attempt to a couple of magazines. I heard back from Muse India but ultimately, they couldn't find a place for it. I like to believe I can obviously improve and the best way to do that, I figured, was to post it on the blog and invite critique from anyone. Be humble, please. I'm still green. … [Read more...] about Short Story: The Cab Ride on Christmas Eve
This is a random short story heavily inspired by a day I had a while ago.

However, I realised I was becoming a bit complacent with what I have here at The Polymath despite it not being popular enough. In doing that and eventually realising it, I had an observation. The Polymath is, what it is, it's my blog and it has this perfect order now. The way the text is written, the format, the image and it won't change because it works … [Read more...] about Change Of Pace: Monologues And Sister-Blogs
I have never written stories, I could always start but never complete any. For a while I started believing that story and novel writing just wasn't my writing style until a few nights back when I could finally come up with something. This is a first attempt so reviews and critiques will be appreciated but I'd still request any reader to not be too harsh. Carry on...It was dark, hours after sundown. The sky had an odd gleam to it. Cloudy yet starlit, a magical charm, as if something magical … [Read more...] about David Quinn – A Short Story
