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. That “far away” is still in India but this part of the country barely has any similarity in culture, language, food habits with my background. This is Hyderabad, my current “not”-home. 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 […]

First South Indian Wedding #56

Background (#55th post) It’s been more than a year I’ve been living in South but this was the very first time for me to attend a south Indian wedding. By this time, I’m pretty much aware of the fact that our cultural differences are huge. But these differences are beautiful in its own way. So […]

Dysfunctional Wedding-shopping #55

Well, I don’t know why I found this ambiguous title so appropriate for this writing. A lot happened in the time when I didn’t show up. One of the recent incident among them is my colleague’s wedding. Expection, eh?🤦‍♀️ I happened to meet Rohini four months ago I when joined my present company. She’s really […]

A Pinch of Regret Can Spoil the Mood #52

When I freshly joined FaceBook, I was probably in high school. For the first couple of years it was the platform to reply to every other strangers who pinged me. Literally I accepted all the friend requests I got at that time. I used to talk to them too. But one thing I always tried […]

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 […]

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 […]

Studying – College edition #46

My college juniors just wrote their final semester exam and my entire Facebook newsfeed is flooded with “last- together : feeling nostalgic” posts. That seems to be a little dramatic now. There are many things that come into mind when people talk about college life. But I would prefer to talk about one of the […]

Roommates #18

Roommate is basically the person with I’m sharing my room. But definitely there’s a lot more I can say about “roommate”. Be it school or college or tuition you can always choose your friends. You always have the chance to find the bunch of people those have common interests as yours or hate the same […]
