Not a meet cute. A modern day dating app match. Two hours of texting and let’s meet. We hit a pub for lunch. Order a pizza, chicken with cheese, two pints. Smokes. My first cigarette, two, three, five. A single day, single date, all and everything. Roaring sexual tension. Your work is fascinating, you take … Continue reading from a long time ago

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!

*10.49 pm* cool breeze and a distant sound of a train honking... April began on a great note. It was the first Monday of the month when I had an interview & got an offer to join as a Content Writer at a company in Mumbai.

Day 1: Dry and cold November arrived and I was eager to see you. You were warm around my vulnerabilities and it felt like home. Around you, it wasn’t an effort.
