Off late, I’ve been obsessed with experimental flash fiction, and wanted to give it a go. This is the piece I liked the best among all my drafts, and although not entirely experimental or ‘nueve’, I still wanted to give it a shot. Here it is: It’s funny how quiet the mind gets when it is […]

Milking the Bulls

My everyday breakfast involves a large bowl of cereal with almost one-and-a-half mugs of milk. Until a few weeks ago, I relished that thought, prided myself even at drinking that milk, or finishing those large boxes of yoghurt and the finest of cheeses.

A potato’s guide to fitness

In terms of my career, I am heading towards a really good place in my life, and I couldn’t feel happier about it. I’m writing, reading and pretty much singing my days away- it somehow feels surreal. However, the only thing that has really always plagued my mind is ‘Weight loss’.  We live in a […]
