Resonance

The world is believed to be in equilibrium, or most of us call it balance. The reality is it never is, it’s actually a place of resonating balance, a balance that shifts in seconds, minutes, days or centuries. So, is it right to say that our so called world is in balance, I guess not, […]

Chocolates

I remember myself running around the park chasing my father. His hand stretched towards me, holding my favorite chocolate. I ran after him with delight. My heart brimmed with joy. My father knew my love for chocolates. It was his best way to show me how much he loved me, and how much he still […]

Oh Aphrodite Have I mistaken Love   Passion oozes Skin grinds against skins Breathing in the moist Smell of holy union   Oh Cupid Have I mistaken Love   My hands glide through her hair Like black mares Running in the dark Oh the hair   Oh Venus Have I mistaken Love   For faith […]

A Mother’s Prayer

When I was young, I used to live in a small house with my parents and my brother in a town called Landour in India. It is a small town surrounded by hills. We had a traditional lifestyle and lived with very little requirements. I remember often playing the game of I-Spy with my brother. […]

Reality Check

We all are in a Labyrinth of Dreams, Half awake. Optimists and pessimists in a realist’s fairytale. Living in a soap bubble, Reflecting the colours of our surroundings.

The September

  “Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun; Conspiring with him how to load and bless With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run; To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees, And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core; To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells With a sweet […]

Long Live the Revolution!

Why do we associate the word ‘revolution’ with the socialist or Marxist terminology? Does revolution only mean overthrowing those in power? Why does revolution mean taking up arms for your ideas? How is revolution different from evolution? Are our opinions communist if we seek to change? Appropriation of any ideology is toxic. Calling a supporter […]

You are Not Broken

“Stop trying to ‘fix’ yourself; you are not Broken! You are perfectly imperfect and powerful beyond measure” –Steve Maraboli   Time and again, we have seen people lose control of themselves in event of a tragedy, be it anything, a personal loss, heartbreak, trusting the wrong people. Well, all that has happened and can’t be […]
