An Exploration

What’s art? Is it colors that are splashed on a canvas, poems brimming with metaphors or a heart-warming prose? For me art is an exploration. Over the years it has helped me on a personal & mental level. It has carried my emotions in ways no human could have. I’ve been able to explore myContinue reading “An Exploration”

Apollo 13 : A Failure

Was it the unlucky number 13 or the sudden change of a crew member? Not really. It was the oxygen tank that exploded. All they could do was gaze at the moon & wave it goodbye. Can you imagine what it must have felt like to traverse all the way across the universe to markContinue reading “Apollo 13 : A Failure”

My Secret Superpower

It was another normal day at school for a 4 year old. Suddenly she felt the urge to get out of the classroom for an ordinary stroll in the hallway. The little girl often found solace in being alone. So, she took the teachers permission to go to the bathroom. A minute later she wasContinue reading “My Secret Superpower”

A year without social media

It’s nearly impossible for many of us to put on hold our lives on social media & focus on ‘real life’.

Do youContinue reading “A year without social media”

Shapely Shadows

I fiddled with them for quite some time. But something was wrong with the key hole. The keys just don’t seem to get along with it tonight.

The 4 year old me says hello to Bharat!

There’s no way any NRI could have had a normal first trip experience to India specially as a child. The sight of a Rickshaw would make me jump with excitement. I’m pretty sure people around me must have been convinced that I’m crazy. An auto-Rickshaw ride was far more bumpy than I expected it toContinue reading “The 4 year old me says hello to Bharat!”

18 & melancholic!

Today was simply one heck of a morning! I was sound asleep in my room when distinct voices woke me up. At first they were unclear but soon I could make out what my mother was saying on the phone, “Oh, how much did you get? What about Nameera?”, the last line was a signalContinue reading “18 & melancholic!”
