HUMANITY IN THE TIMES OF UBER POOL!

Until recently, I didn’t know the beauty of Uber Pool. Today I took my 5th Pool ride. I have got co-riders on 3 rides only. Generally, I put on my earphones and stealthily look into my co-rider’s phone just to make up scenarios in my head as to what the person does in life. Today…

TWINKLE KHANNA & THE LEGEND OF LAKSHMI PRASAD

About a fortnight ago, I happened to lay my eyes on a bookstore, and I was drawn inside it by some kind of magic. I spent a little more than an hour moving from one shelf to another, meanwhile colliding with people because I didn’t want to break eye contact with the book that I…

NEW GIRL IN THE CITY! (December16)

Phew! Finally, I am back to narrate my story, after a long intermission. 🙂 For those who haven’t read my last entry, I have been MIA since July! So, past 6 months were highly adventurous, so much so that I had to delete (forget) some of the incidents from my mind palace! In a nutshell,…

MORE ABOUT ‘The Retrospective Procrastinator’?

I am The Retrospective Procrastinator! How, you ask? That’s because, I have been (past tense; now I’m not 😀 ) a procrastinator, I look back at past incidents and ponder on them (retrospect), regret my mistakes – but I make sure I commit them again. 😛 Hence, the name The Retrospective Procrastinator! Other than that, I’m a happy…

SNAPE – THE BRAVEHEART

Harry Potter was one of the best things that happened during my adolescence. I adore and admire all the characters of the book, and still crave to be a part of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Not to mention, even now I read/watch the series whenever I can. Each time that I revisit Harry…

COFFEE – THOU ART MY LIFE, THOU ART MY LOVE

Coffee…yeah Coffee. A lot can happen over coffee. Yes, including falling in love with it.

IS YOUR DESTINATION BEAUTIFUL?

What happens when working towards a goal becomes difficult? Do you push ahead or take a rest? Life is one struggle after the next, a series of choices every day, and there comes a point when we question ourselves – Do I stay or do I leave? One of the hardest decisions we make in…

ARE OUR CREATIONS, THE REVELATIONS OF OUR MIND?

I have always wondered – what if I was a painter! I am not very good at sketching or drawing, I might have something marvellous in my imagination, but whatever I put on paper is way different. 😦 These two art pieces I had created long time ago on MS Paint, again the result was quite different…

HOW TO STAY ENCOURAGED WHEN YOU ARE UNEMPLOYED

When a person embarks on the path of job search, it’s usually impossible to know how long the journey will be. Hence, within time, the rejections multiply and the savings get divided, resulting in a crestfallen attitude. There could be two possibilities for an experienced person searching for a job – either, he/she is employed…

THE FOOL MOON!

I believe – when the Moon becomes full, it becomes fool. Because it thinks there’s no one else who is more beautiful than it. That’s when the Sun comes out and hides the Moon in the bounds of its heat. And thereafter, every night after being consumed by the Sun, there comes a day when…

THE EXPANSIVE UNIVERSE

The Expansive Universe – contains the tides of the sea, the rotation around the sun and other boundless activities. Isn’t our mortal form a miniature of the universe?

MUMBAI FROM THE EYES OF A WORK-TRAVELLER

The city of dreams is also the city with a soul. Never lazy, always on the move, never dying and crazy spirit; sometimes I wonder if the city ever sleeps. Also, how can I not talk about the seamless coexistence of chaos and peace. The sound of the traffic entwined with the pitter patter of…

A GIRL’S JOURNEY HAS NO NAME

A conversation on life reminded me of what I actually want to do – I want to travel – to places known & destinations undiscovered. Because when one sets out to explore a place, one finds a piece of oneself that was hidden under the dust of social stigmas. It’s been long, really long, that…
