A Bite of Life

Away from home, you get more nostalgic than ever. I think this piece would be a standing testimony to that. All roads lead to Mutharasanallur. This humble village, not far from the popular Rockfort Town Trichy has been our escapade into sublime reality, and what we have called home for over three generations. My parents […]

Why the world needs Humanities

Being a writer in this age and stage of life is hard, especially when writing is not considered ‘serious business.’ On most occasions, the fields of arts and humanities have always been overshadowed by the construed important professions such as the ones that deal with numbers or Law or Business. It’s quite hard for some of […]

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 […]

The photograph in my wallet

The Zodiacal Métier

Reading and understanding Sun signs has always been an activity all of us like to undertake. Most of us look at the forecast for our own sun sign and later try to recall if any of it was true. However, how many of us have thought of something different while reading our cards? I had a moment of […]

Thus Spake the Mind

I was someone who enjoyed spending time with her thoughts, often pulling a stray thought from a grey cell and incubating it until little “thoughtens” hatched their way to disrupt what I was thinking of in the first place.

Anonymous, synonymous?

Recently, I felt a strange connection to the world, almost to the point of feeling surreal. It felt like I was in the murky cesspool of drama, emotions and yet, a smile was plastered to my face. This was my attempt in vain to let the introvert in me to get to know the over-enthusiastic grown […]

Kolkata- India’s Petrichor

Kolkata. The name says it all. The city of dreams, the city of love, the city where everyone feels at home, and where “kêmon achhen?” is the best “how are you” I have ever heard. The pen is mightier than the sword here, and what better place can one find to write than in this […]
