Some days are meant for disappointment #70

Expectation, mothering disappointment since beginning of time. No matter how hard I try to keep myself unaffected from expectations, I end up in negative situations rooting from expectations. The incident I’m gonna write about is just beginning of my bad mood today and the circumstances kept adding fuel to that fire.  Today, we had planned […]

The Independence Day #69

Till my high school days Independence Day was more than a holiday to me. It was more than those 2-3 patriotic songs being played in loop for the whole day. ” Don’t even think about staying at home tomorrow. I will take the attendance for sure. ” -my class teacher used to say this  every […]

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 […]

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 […]

Terms with bugs #39

I’m a girl and having said that one can easily assume what “terms” I can have with bugs. Still I wanted to pull this topic because there are much more to this. As a person I never tolerate violence to animals. Even as a kid also I don’t remember to hit any poor creature for […]

Just kidding! #36

There are many incidents that had influenced me to end up here writing this. Today jokes will be in the spotlight but not the innocent ones, I’m talking about the “pure evils”/ offensive jokes. These are some incidents that made me think about it: One: YouTubers often intentionally/unintentionally make offensive jokes. In the worst case […]

A conversation with my inner self #34

I think every person undergoes some drastic change in behaviour/personality over the course of time. For some it’s clearly visible in a short span of time, for others the time frame must be large enough to observe the changes. I’m not an exception to that. There must have been many changes in my behavior, opinion, […]
