The Polymath Will Now Have A New Post Every Tuesday, Every Week


I’ll keep this one short. I’ve written a lot on this blog in the last six months. However, I’ve realised that too much is as bad as nothing. In fact, four post per week is overwhelming as per most people who read my blog. It is also overwhelming for me and at times, I won’t lie, I produced half-assed content just for the sake of getting a post out. So, there are going to...

The AUX Cable Diaries: Music, Friends, And Differences


The AUX cable is perhaps one of the biggest examples of trust between a group of friends. If you can trust a friend with an AUX cable, you can probably trust them with everything. AUX is obviously synonymous with Bluetooth now. Basically, the guy who plays music in the car full (and at times, overloaded) with friends is under a lot of pressure. That is because no more than three people can have...

How Leaving The Nest Changed Me, And What Made Me Realise That


Leaving the nest is a significant step for birds, and well, humans. I know because I have felt it firsthand. We’re human beings, and although all of us are unique and different, one thing remains common. We crave change and growth. Seeing the world and moving about in it is the easiest way to do just that. A couple of recent events made me realise this very fact.

A Good Life Isn’t Devoid Of Stress; It’s How You Manage It That Counts


Some stress is necessary for life. That is my maxim. That is what I believe. Why is that? I don’t know. Maybe it was the way I grew up. Perhaps, it is how I’m wired. However, I do think that there should always be some stress in life for me to move forward. In fact, stress is slightly positive unless all of us would be somewhat complacent. What do you do if you’re utterly and...

What Most People Don’t Understand When They’re Making Phone Calls


We’ve come a long way when it comes to the way we communicate. Most people suck at making phone calls. I have a lot of quirks as a person. I am also easily irritable when it comes to said quirks. One of these is that I hate people who call you and instead of talking to you, they start talking to someone else who’s standing right next to them. In fact, I asked a lot of friends, and...

Don’t Add Water: You Can Always Eat Something Better


Eating shit is a choice. This is something I’ve learned in the last six months. In fact, it was almost exactly six months ago when I wrote a post titled, “Just Add Water: A Lazy People’s Guide To 2-Minute Cup Food“. This post talks about my, then recent, acquaintance with instant eatables. This is a passive apology for glorifying the idea of bad eating habits. Just add water...

That Stranger In Starbucks Who Was So Content That She Was An Anomaly


On Christmas Day last year, I was with my friends in Starbucks. It was a great week. People from the hometown were staying with me, and I showed them around Delhi-NCR. On one evening, I took them out to show them my Starbucks; the Starbucks outlet which I visit regularly. No, I’m not an inadequate guide, I also took them to other places including monuments, roadside markets and so on. As we...

How Finding My Trigger Habit Lets Me Break My Routine If Life Demands


I spent a lot of time reading Medium articles last year. Most of them fell into the same group and talked about the same things. The hustle porn, the CEO routines and so on was the name of the game. However, one article that I remember was about “making your bed”. I tried looking for it. However, Medium is full of “make your bed” articles now. It’s a weird community...

Surround Yourself With Friends Who Do To Enable Yourself To Do More


It is great to have friends. It is even better if your friends do things. Nothing tops having healthy jealousy among friends who do things though. That is how I define my relationship with my friends from my hometown. Each of us has a different path, and we realise that. It is in that realisation that we continually push each other to become the best versions of ourselves. I wouldn’t have...
