If you are even slightly impulsive or have been so a few times, you would have some day picked up the pen and written this blog. Today it was my impulsive turn. It’s about time the word ‘impulsive’ gets listed in the curse-word category. And if we kept it up as a society, it would … Continue reading Unapologetically impulsive!
Wow, that hurts! I feel pangs, in installments. Sometimes it just strikes all at once. Other times, it would jerk me out of my bed. The ego lies scattered in pieces on the floor. And reduced to a supposed self-respect that too is in shatters now. The heart shudders at the words. The first letters … Continue reading Why I never ‘reject’ a rejection?
It really was the expelliarmus that left me disarmed. Their sleight of hands was one of an aged magician who doesn’t leave a single spell unspoken.

The three women from three different … Continue reading The spell of their music-craft
It was one of those lovely Christmas nights. December 22nd, About 8.50 pm on the clock. We were ecstatic by a little adventure.

It’s funny how we city-ites would invariably find a flaw in a beauty if it would in some way affect our little adventures. I quickly checked myself for thinking if only the moon – that thrills … Continue reading The faith of a village that moves mountains!

NO! How difficult is it to REALLY understand this word? Even in text messaging, they haven’t come up with a short cut of the word yet. However, we find it pretty hard to really hear it, and hence really accept it. A lot of it has something to do with the culture that we grew … Continue reading Nope!
IT started to rain heavily mid way. I was sitting behind his bike. No raincoat. He was riding it. With raincoat. He said something like he was sorry that I was getting wet. I said something like it was okay. Just when a few yards away, I spot a house. Water was gushing out of … Continue reading Having a best friend who I hate!
YOU are high. It’s almost as if you can hear each beat of your heart. And with each thud, you are thrilled. You drift into a world of your own, where you lead, you guide, you call the shots. You play with words, you swim in a sea of your own voice. You smile indulgently … Continue reading Just that brand of heroin!
