When I started blogging, I used to write when I felt like it. Or when a certain epiphany hits and I felt like the words were exploding inside me to come out. I do miss that feeling. Ever since I started my biweekly publishing schedule, I no longer have that luxury. In the last couple … Continue reading Blogging is getting harder
Short Story: New Career
‘This worked at home’ I looked inside the hat puzzled, ignoring my audience of impatient 8 year olds. There was supposed to be a deck full of Queen of Hearts in there. But, it was empty. I cocked my head sideways, frowning. How did this not work? I had enchanted the hat with all of … Continue reading Short Story: New Career
I Probably Shouldn’t Complain
Life has been tough recently. I am stressed ( because of my visa delay) and really fed up with my incessant problems. I said to my mom the other day on the phone: 'I never get anything done smoothly in my life!' Yesterday I met a friend who is almost my elder sister by now. … Continue reading I Probably Shouldn’t Complain
You never know you are doing, you just do it
I was talking to my friend past Friday. I was trying to start a PS3 console and it wouldn't start so I called him. While talking I mentioned that I am trying out 'Batman: Arkham City' game even though I have no clue what to do in it. It is at that moment he pretty … Continue reading You never know you are doing, you just do it

Daily Prompt: Recognize (Fiction)
"Do you know who this man is?" Counselor Michaels asked the witness. It was a very important question as it will either make or break the case. However, the witness couldn't have been more unreliable. Joe Monley was a two time convicted felon, one for B&E and the other for manslaughter. He has been clean … Continue reading Daily Prompt: Recognize (Fiction)
Daily Prompt: Replacement (Science Fiction)
'You are pregnant!' the monitor displayed with tiny GIFs of babies crawling sprawled across the screen like confetti. The screen thought it was a celebration. Tessa did not want to celebrate though. A baby meant work, lots of hard work and who does that these days. Amongst her sisters, only one had a baby and … Continue reading Daily Prompt: Replacement (Science Fiction)
Daily Prompt: Oversight (Fiction)
Nothing bad can ever come here. Last night's events were not oversight, but they were a result of complacency. How else can three vampires just waltz into Wolf town? Wolf town is the holy land for all kinds of wolfs all over the world. Werewolves, direwolves, siberian wolves and so on. Sometimes even Huskies are … Continue reading Daily Prompt: Oversight (Fiction)
#100DaysofCode challenge: These guys made my week!
I have enjoyed coding a lot since coming to Auckland. I had a lot of time in my hands, ample resources to learn and now I am always keen on coding. I just don't know what to code: I don't have any project in mind. One day, reading an article on Design.blog I stumbled on … Continue reading #100DaysofCode challenge: These guys made my week!
A couple of months ago, I was debating in my university team on minimum wage. The opposite side debated that minimum wage should stay as it helps establish identity. I remember the moment clearly when the opposite side argued 'a person's identity is associated with what they do for a living'. I rebutted against their … Continue reading Identity Crisis
