Are you a fast food lover like me? #172

On a typical Sunday morning, I usually don’t leave bed before 12. So most of the times I don’t see the Sunday morning at all. Today it turned out to be different. I woke up by 8.30 and kept on rolling (on the bed) and scrolling through my Instagram feed till 10 AM. The other […]

The Doppelgänger Mystery #138

Once somebody told me that every human on this planet has a Doppelgänger. I never got any scientific explanation of this statement but an incident of distant past made me believe this. (A Daily Prompt Story)

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 […]

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. […]

Festivals Then vs. Now #62

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 […]

Beauty, Brain and Judgements #43

It’s Sunday and fortunately I managed to wake up before afternoon. As usual before stepping on the floor and and starting my day I spent almost one hour checking my Facebook, WhatApp, Instagram, Twitter accounts. A Facebook memory popped up in my newsfeed today that became my motivation to write this. It was about an […]
