It makes a difference

Fyodor Dostoyevsky, a Russian novelist and philosopher once said, “The soul is healed by being with children”, and when you go on to try and figure out why it could be so, we may end up with different conclusions falling in the same gradient. For me the meaning behind this would best be expressed if…

Trip to Diu

Sometime in May I had gone for a three day trip to the Island of Diu, off the coast of Gujarat, India, and while I was there I had planned on starting a travel blog, basically writing about the places I had visited, but out of sheer laziness I never got around to do it….

The certain dawnings of life

I went for a three day retreat to this hill station called Mt. Abu in Rajasthan, India. We stayed at this exceptionally beautiful property, The Palace Hotel- Bikaner House. Which happens to be owned and run by one of my uncles, from my mothers side of the family. Though my mother had spent a reasonable…

Sculpture 1/3

You know how, when you have nothing to do, you just kind of manage to find yourself involved with a lot of things, and just somehow manage to sign-up for everything that comes up? Well, that is exactly what I did when I signed up for a sculpture workshop for three days. Today was the…

Today I went to the hairdresser

I wanted to do something new, so I thought of colouring my hair. I mean I already got inked so that was ticked off the list anyway. Being back home form college, and not having to spend my allowance on things like this just made me feel as thought it was the right time. It…

Kaira

Light filtered through her curtained window, she was lying awake, before her alarm had gone off. It had been one of those days, when she just hadn’t been able to sleep well. Days like this were becoming common to her now, especially after the accident. Two years had gone by since that day and though…

The message in the bottle

“I never want him to be sad or low. He made me happy, still does. He is a positive person, full of life, a little complex, but he really did understand me. He could see through me, or so I thought at least. He used to give me hope, made me laugh. I was sure…

Ice-cream Insight

When the chocolate chip ice cream just starts to melt is becomes this ugly heap of melting brown liquid with chocolate chips jutting out at weird places. If someone was to judge ice creams based on what they look like, I’m sure only a few would pick the chocolate chip, but as far as taste…

No harm in dreaming

Dream “leave your broken windows open and in the light just streams and you get a head, a head full of dreams” -A Head Full Of Dreams//Coldplay Twisting and turning, she perspired all over. The blanket that covered her had become her cage, confining her to it. It had become a net in which she was…

Someone like me

I’ve been trying to figure out what sort of a blog I should have. I mean, I haven’t been around here very long but in whatever little time I’ve spent here I come across a number of interesting blogs, each having something unique and special about it. I’ve come across travel blogs, gardening blogs, cookery…

Getting started

“All you have is now.” I was reading this wonderful book today, and it was during the course of reading that this thought plonked itself into my head. So when I realised that nobody knows how things might turn out tomorrow, and all each one of us has is “now”, I thought, “Why not give…
