outside my window

The loud cacophony of crows wakes me up at 7 am. They are adamant on having their morning assembly right outside my window. I open my eyes to another regular day at my Mumbai apartment in Four Bungalows where I have returned after 6 months. I rub my eyes and pick up the toothbrush from … Continue reading outside my window

September issue

*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

A week of healing

*3.29 pm* a dull Wednesday afternoon, runny nose and six tasks with today's deadline Monsoon is my least favorite season (but also the most favorite one because nature is at its best). Every year, as soon as the wet monsoon breeze flows in, all my allergies wake up from their hibernation and enjoy full 3 … Continue reading A week of healing

I recently came across a video explaining how we tend to over work in order to achieve our goals & forget to pause & breathe. It made me realise that I often beat myself up over not doing … Continue reading The importance of a taking a Break

A jack of all trades

*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

april’d away in bed

*1.50 pm* typing away some blabber whilst sitting at the dining table. Mau is not very happy about my presence, she keeps giving me cold stares. Last night I had a conversation with a friend about how laziness attracts negativity and that inspired to finally get my ass off the bed and write. For the … Continue reading april’d away in bed
