The cat’s big move, ii

“Oh hello, Mrs Sprightley!” “Oh hello, Sugar!” “Would you like some tea?” “Yes! With a drop of lemon in it.” “Oh! And something to go with it?” “Some cookies, please.” “Cookiesssss? Lovelyyyyyy!" Back in December 2020, when I was still in Mumbai, Komal and I would enact this famous exchange from K3G in a British … Continue reading The cat’s big move, ii

Turning 26!

It isn’t as incredible as they make it sound. *11.38 am* cloudy & gloomy; Current Month - January, Feels like - June. I remember, as a child when I was put in daycare, this old aunty would teach us many prayers and shlokas. One prayer had a line that said, ‘dear god, help us grow … Continue reading Turning 26!

outside my window

A loud cacophony of crows wakes me up at seven in the morning. The crows are adamant. They want to do their morning assembly right outside my window, every day. A regular day commences at my tiny apartment in Four Bungalows, Mumbai. I rub my eyes and pick up the toothbrush from the shelf above … Continue reading outside my window

I have always found it boring to be a master of one when you can be a jack of all. I have been a jack of all trades … Continue reading A jack of all trades

what am I even doing?

*06.15 pm* I really need to vent out today. Last week I bought my domain (finally!), now I just have to figure out the hosting, transfer, etc. Basically, the tech stuff which I'm clueless about and don't want to end up spending more than I should. So here's a public announcement - Developers Wanted (preferable … Continue reading what am I even doing?

a month so mixed up

*3.30 pm* I dislike summers. Where I stay, summers burn your skin like you've bathed with fire, or worse. It is probably my least favourite season. And you know what, it has only started. I wonder how hot its going to get in next two months. Or three. Last week, I had to work only … Continue reading a month so mixed up
