*02.46 pm BST* Listening to Lata Mangeshkar's melodious voice singing जीवनात ही घडी अशीच राहु दे, प्रीतिच्या फुलावरी वसंत नाचु दे, जीवनात ही घडी अशीच राहु दे on my earphones. The streets are wet and greasy from the drizzle that hasn't stopped since morning. An old white lady walks towards the bus station in full … Continue reading Hello, from the grey country 🙂
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!
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
*7.30 pm* Had a stressful day today with too many things to do and very little time. So I picked up a pen and began writing in my diary about everything on my mind. That's when I thought of going back and reading about some Septembers from the past. I wondered what I was doing … Continue reading September issue
*9.49 pm* Just had Pizza for dinner so we’re good. Last Sunday, I stepped out of my house after two months. My parents and I planned to visit some old family friends who had lost a loved one recently. Unexpectedly, it turned out to be a much-needed getaway after months of digital screen time. So, … Continue reading Back to my roots
*12.43 pm* I love Decembers. The cold winds, cozy sleep under the blanket, the warmth of hoodies, holidays and the party mood, hot chocolate at any time of the day and conclusions. December has it all. For the last two weeks I was occupied with a lot of work. On the first weekend of December, … Continue reading a feeling called December
*3.01 pm* Celebrating Independence Day with some rescued cats at the Cat Cafe Studio as 'Willow' sits on my laptop and demands cuddles. Cat Cafe Studio I have been extremely busy at work but last weekend was fun. I hung out with a lot of friends, had a sleep-out in my car after watching Scary … Continue reading A mid-week break
*11.30* in the middle of an extremely busy and productive work week. Jack of all trades, master of none. This proverb has never made sense to me. 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
*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?
*3.20 pm* Sneaked 10 minutes off of work (from my NEW office!) after two whirlwind kind of weeks, because I had to write this. And oh! I've started cooking. I was quite excited about joining my new workplace when I wrote my last blog. It has been 15 days since and I wonder where time … Continue reading Day to day
*09.05 pm* can you get high on a city? umm..yes! I am trying to find words to describe how amazing the last few weeks have been. I got super drunk with my senior colleagues (the bosses, yes!) on a Monday night! A night where everyone present was literally rolling on the floor laughing for hours … Continue reading Hangover
*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. I was obviously thrilled at this as moving to … Continue reading The cat’s big move.
*8.03 pm* such a cool title, I know. Amidst the fresh February feels and a head full of daydreams, I drove to work with my morning routine songs playing on a loop on the radio. Apart from the ghastly mail from the boss that dropped in everyone’s mailbox a night before and the mid-week foul … Continue reading Fresh February Feels
