While going through my old photos on FaceBook I found this one. The idea of the photo was one fine day, I looked at the mirror and found myself looking exactly like my sister. The avatars you’re seeing are customized by me and Sissy. Our skin tone is almost the same- brown. But from my […]
After so many rituals and functions this was the day when Bunny and Betty would be finally married. Luckily their wedding was on a holiday which should provide me with unlimited(almost) time to get ready. I attended all the previous functions coming directly from office. I couldn’t bear to come to the wedding like that. […]
Sangeet This was the first time for me to attend any sangeet. As per as I know from the movies, sangeet is the day before wedding the 2 families will meet and celebrate the time singing and dancing. I’m admitting that my knowledge on this is very limited. We Bengalis don’t have sangeet in our […]
The Engagement It was just the day after I returned from a visit to my hometown. I received a call from Chubby Bunny to attend his engagement ceremony. Bunny got this particular name for most obvious reasons. I knew that Bunny had a girlfriend but I didn’t know what are they up to. Bunny is […]
Religions are just different ways to get to the ultimate positive energy. In the photo, every side of the building represents a prayer house( is that even a word?) of a different religion. I respect every religion.

“… your name please?” “Progga…” “Sorry, what?” “Pragya… P-r-a-g-y-a” “You are a Bengali right? Obhijit, Obhishek… ‘O’s everywhere”.The guy burst out in laughter thinking how funny he was.

I don’t remember a time when I was excited about adventure and human interaction for the whole day. Everyday I go to office, do my work, come back home, spend a couple of hours on internet and go to sleep. Oh and I talk to mom over phone for some time. Mostly I like to […]
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 […]

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 […]
Who doesn’t want to be cool? But being cool doesn’t necessarily be easy always. Some people feel cool in following the mass and some standing well out of them. Many of today’s internet famous personalities have been bullied in the school/college-life, they might be frowned at by their neighbours even now after all this virtual […]
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.

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 […]
I felt this several times in my life. I used to feel bad for not having minimal connection with my college friends after graduation.
