Elsewhere

Our lives are happening elsewhere,¬†neatly laid out in a symmetric ballad.¬†I do not have the same pleasures,¬†You do not have the same fears.¬†¬†We have abandoned washing oursins in the rivers and creating eddies¬†of our tears inside teacups. Are theremiracles still suffused in our days?¬†Yes. We gather them by the armful¬†and plant them into the rich... Continue Reading →

Time is a Flat Circle

The streets are deserted and it's all very silent. You'd think that the silence would be loud enough to hear, don't you? I cannot hear it unless I stop everything I am doing and go look outside. The chaos and the grief in my own head is so much. You don't need me to tell... Continue Reading →

I've heard her say this story so many times in the past 8 years that I started to get sick of it because wasn't there anything else?... Continue Reading →

Okay, Then.

Today, after an era, I went to a cobbler to fix my shoes. I threw in the outdoor essentials in my cloth bag, took the community e-bike, and rode up to the cobbler my mother recommended. I don't know what I was expecting, but I really wasn't expecting an old man sitting in languid peace... Continue Reading →

Plain Pancakes and Some Such

Tomato became a comfort fruit way back in college, I think. We used to go to my childhood friend's house after college (which I detested, by the way) and make Maggi noodles in a chopped tomato and red chilli powder simmer. It was a dish my childhood friend made for us for many years every... Continue Reading →
