What is my blog about now?


I completely overlooked the fact that my blog is 4 years old. I should have made a big deal of it considering how quickly my passions oscillate. I am astonished that I haven't let my blog die. For the past 4 years, I kept writing without any theme in mind. I wrote about my life, … Continue reading What is my blog about now?

This last Sunday was Z.R.Southcombe’s “Ramble On” book launch and I was a part of it. I read an excerpt of my piece. I loved the entire event, it was simple and full of lovely people.

How hard can it be? (New Plymouth-Paritutu Rock Edition)


(My weekend was not hard except this bit. Considering how much fun I had writing last week's post, I wanted to continue this. I might write an entire post about my New Plymouth trip later) 'Is it hard?' someone in the van asked. A guy, let's call him C had done it before with his … Continue reading How hard can it be?

How Hard can it be? (Ice Skating Edition)


If you are going to try something you have never tried before, a person is bound to tell you 'How hard can it be?'. That person might think that they are encouraging. It is either that or they want to watch you fail so bad that they can send your fail video to FailArmy.  My … Continue reading How Hard can it be? (Ice Skating Edition)

Weekend Coffee Share: Week’s helper


I missed last weekend's coffee share as I was doing something. I don't remember what. The week started early, some 5 am when one of my friend called me to talk to me. Something was wrong I knew immediately and we Skyped so early in the morning. Something had came up and she was scared. … Continue reading Weekend Coffee Share: Week’s helper

Weekend Coffee Share: New House


If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I moved to a new house past Sunday. It's not as luxurious as my previous house but then again I knew it was coming. I spent the week here, making friends with the roommates and slowly our bond seems to be getting stronger, unlike my … Continue reading Weekend Coffee Share: New House

Maybe I should pay more attention


Racism. Something which I would hardly think of when I am dealing with people. So whenever people would ask me "Where are you from?" I would reply where am I from and just leave it at that. I hardly pay any heed to the subtle hints of racism because I do not have time for … Continue reading Maybe I should pay more attention

Sometimes I Surprise Myself


I have been cooking in a new country for a month now. Sadly, only once my cooking has produced something that I couldn't get enough of. I do not cook bad all the time. I don't cook amazing either. The very first time I cooked lamb chops, I followed a recipe. The result was so … Continue reading Sometimes I Surprise Myself

Level 2016: You Are Just Going To Get Harder Aren’t You?


If life is compared to a computer game then each year would be a level. In the beginning of the level, it seems easier but with time it gets harder and harder. You pray for the demon to appear so you could beat him and finish the level. If life is a computer game, then that … Continue reading Level 2016: You Are Just Going To Get Harder Aren’t You?

My First Job

First Job

It lasted for four days. Yes four days. (I have previously written on my struggles to land a job.) How did I get placed there? I had little hopes of getting a good job. I had a specific criteria & I was not willing to enter any written agreement mandating me to work for the … Continue reading My First Job

What Do You Want to Do in Life?


My dad sat with me the other night to have a very important talk. I expected the conversation to involve drinking or something related to it. Instead he shocked me by asking a question I was never ready for. I will probably be never be able to answer. Beta kya karna hai life me? ‘what … Continue reading What Do You Want to Do in Life?

To whomsoever it may concern(Too Honest)


I had an interview today. And their response at the end blew my mind. Not my preferred job profile, but its better than sitting at home and doing nothing. I have to start somewhere, if its at the bottom of ladder so be it. My ego can eat shit. I made my share of mistakes … Continue reading To whomsoever it may concern(Too Honest)

Joy


Ha! Ha! I kept laughing like an absolute lunatic on the phone. She kept shouting at me to stop laughing because it was something serious. Eventually she gave up and hung up the phone. This evening things went after a huge time better. I don't know what prompted it. Whether there was any prompt or … Continue reading Joy

Projects, Dashing cars, Bowling, Heartbreaks and everything in between.


Usually plans are made. Let's hang out here, let's go there on Sundays. But nothing happens and at the end you are left at home watching a movie for like tenth time eating same comfort food. Sometimes spontaneous plans are born, kindled by the preceding unsuccessful attempts of planned hangouts, and something great comes out … Continue reading Projects, Dashing cars, Bowling, Heartbreaks and everything in between.

How I Stitched A Button


Let's back up a few days for now. The last couple of weeks weren't easy for me. For one I had to face the doomsday conundrum: Decisions. Now, it probably is not a big deal for you but it was a big deal for me. I have to decide what to do about my future … Continue reading How I Stitched A Button

Laughter!


This one is special. It is very close to my heart and I felt like writing about it for a while. Laughter. It is contagious, spontaneous and very much precious. Ever heard a baby laugh? In no time almost everyone looking at the baby starts laughing, the joy spreads across like water. If you know … Continue reading Laughter!

Loss


( By Heart You’re asked to recite a poem (or song lyrics) from memory — what’s the first one that comes to mind? Does it have a special meaning, or is there another reason it has stayed, intact, in your mind?) Yes, I understand that every life must end, aw-huh,.. As we sit alone, I … Continue reading Loss

Holidays!!


They are a benedictions and yet most often a malediction. And expectation come hand in hand with them. If you have read my previous posts you will know that I absolutely abhor expectations. In fact I'm irreversibly marred by them. The tyranny of expectations breathe down the neck when holidays are descried in the horizon … Continue reading Holidays!!

Transiting


( In Transit Train stations, airport terminals, subway stops: soulless spaces full of distracted, stressed zombies, or magical sets for fleeting, interlocking human stories?) This post can be taken as a continuation of an earlier post about the train travel experience. Almost three and a half years of travels via trains,  which could be summed … Continue reading Transiting

Daily Post ( Truth Serum You’ve come into possession of one vial of truth serum. Who would you give it to (with the person’s consent, of course) — and what questions would you ask? Not the best relation to the topic. But if I could frame a question to this post it would probably be like … Continue reading I’m proud
