Love, Virtue and Eleven Minutes #179

My heart is too heavy today… for no apparent reason. Nothing exceptionally bad happened but still I am not able to cheer myself up. Since I came home, I had plenty of spare time, I was reading this book called “Eleven Minutes” by Paolo Coelho. For my entire life, I did not get enough chance […]

Going to a Bar for the first time #175

It was an usual Wednesday except the fact that I was standing outside my office building with some of my colleagues after my shift. I am always super exhausted after my shift is over. As I don’t share a common route with any of these people, I never have a company while returning from office. […]

When You Are Jealous with no Right to be Jealous… #162

Remember Rapha, from A Walk to remember ft. my crush? After our glorious “walk” I was so overwhelmed with my teenage hormones (I’m not a teenager but I do feel like one, sometimes). Rapha was all over my mind for couple of months, I thought about him a lot. Can’t tell you how many times […]

Gold digger feminist. #77

It’s year ending day. Honestly I had tons of other things to write but I had to start with the thing that had been bothering me since morning. Now before going into the incident, I want to admit that I have many flaws but I keep on trying to be a better person everyday. Yesterday […]

Zero leftover challenge. #72

This month I decided to give away leftover foods to homeless people. On my way to office I come across many beggars daily. I can almost remember all of their faces. I can’t tell if all of them are genuinely in need of food or not but I couldn’t manage to find a more suitable […]

Double Standards #67

Background: If you have come across my previous post you already know that I have recently been to my hometown and I met some of my old friends. One of them was Suse. I might have mentioned her here and there. I know Suse from high school. In fact from 12th standard I regarded her […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

It Started With a Joke! #57

It was an amazing dinner with my colleague Keith on a Friday night. This was much needed after such a hectic week. Keith is senior to me in office but a really good friend. Both of us have one thing in common- love for food. Whenever any one of us is in the mood of […]

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 […]

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 […]
