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

Back to my roots

*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

Pandemic Progress Report

*07:08 pm* Alright, let's do this! The Lock-down was a much-needed relief when it first began but its unprecedented extension has been nerve-wracking. Anxiety, frustration and hopelessness have come as a package! I took the last 6-7 weeks to argue, sob and sulk in order to cope up with the helplessness I was feeling. While … Continue reading Pandemic Progress Report

a feeling called December

*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

#WednesdayWisdom

*03.18 pm* engrossed & amazed by 'Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind’ by Yuval Noah Harari Last week was tiresome as I had been thinking or rather overthinking about my career situation. I have been ranting about it on my blog for far too long, I know. But it is one of the most important … Continue reading #WednesdayWisdom

tête-à-tête

*12.53 am* midnight mood to have a heart to heart! I remember when I started this blog two and a half years back, I was unsure if I would be able to continue it. In fact, I was unsure of what to do in life itself. While the later one hasn’t changed, I still took … Continue reading tête-à-tête

A mid-week break

*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

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

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?

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

keeping it short, Jan 2019

*11.40pm* extremely sleepy but forcing myself to write this because I really want to be regular at my blog. Just when I had decided to take my writing seriously and be regular at blogging, I am about to fail. It is the mid of the first month of the year and I haven't written anything. … Continue reading keeping it short, Jan 2019
