Dark Confessions from Life #64

Since my last confession post, I was kind of feeling better. I haven’t made any confession on internet before, not even in sarahah! I am always skeptical about the admins of the confession pages. What if this guy/girl actually knows me? What if he/she posts my name too. Basically I don’t have faith in such […]

Fresher’s Party #63

Whenever I go through old photos of mine my whole body cringes out. Same thing happens when FaceBook shows me memories from the past. I wonder how could people have tolerated my pseudo-intellectual stuff in horrible English(even worse than this). My taste and preferences have changed a lot over time and they are still changing. […]

What make me less Bengali #60

Background: I’m a Bengali living far away from my near and dear ones for the sake of my job.

Bengalis are known for their […]

Confession of a Mediocre #59

I come from an Indian middle-class family. Among my parents, my mom was a bright kid, always a topper. My dad was just “ok” in his studies. Both of them had hard childhood, having financial problem, too many siblings, responsibilities more than age and many other problems that I can’t imagine. As parents they made […]

Illegal Dreams #58

Dreams. I can’t tell you how many times I had to convince myself that dreams have nothing to do with reality. I’m a typical pisces person, that makes me official daydreamer. But today I wanna talk about the dreams that I have when my body is resting on the bed and my mind is stoned […]

First South Indian Wedding #56

A Pinch of Regret Can Spoil the Mood #52

Overrated Destiny #51

“Everything happens for a reason”- I am a strong believer of destiny. It’s the belief that drives me to think about reason behind everything having even slightest connection with me. But sometimes I feel that it’s a complete waste of time. My life will be the same even without knowing the reason or rather it […]

Reacting to Negative Remarks #50

I may preach others all the time but honestly it takes a lot of effort to act graciously when it comes to criticism. Let’s be real for a moment. If somebody comes to you and calls you beautiful, you’ll smile believing it to be true. But if the same person points to your flaw, you […]

Night-time thoughts #49

On the usual weekdays, my body becomes so tired after office and household works that it shuts down before midnight. On the contrary, in the weekend I keep on sleeping till I get tired of sleeping and my back starts hurting for lying down all the day. Every weekend I have some major plans to […]

Dear Daddy… #47

“It’s a girl”- the doctor said and handed me over to him. I wish, I remembered his first expression. It’s weird that we don’t remember seeing our mom and dad for the first time. Anyway, I heard this later that dad saw me before mom. Maybe that’s why I have a whole different level of […]
