Capital Letters

Allow me, dear readers, to tell you what an absolutely smashing week I've had. You could set the entire week to the tune of Uptown Funk and no event, no casual sidelong glance, no smile would miss a beat. If this week were a song, it would be #1 on the Spotify Mood Booster playlist.... Continue Reading →

Feel It Still

The first time I found myself introduced to the thought as a coherent and verbalised expression was when I read it in a letter. It was a time of great contradictions. These words came like unannounced rain washing everything and leaving behind a dampness that just wouldn’t go away. My head became clear, cold, and... Continue Reading →

The Long Road

In My Veins

In the final episode of Castle - Season 4, a song plays in the background as Castle's daughter, Alex, talks about goodbyes on her graduation day.

A Love Affair

First of all, apologies that this post comes so late in the day. It's as overdue as overdue can be and as important as important can be. Getting straight to it. This is the story of a love affair. It began a long time ago, when a man named Ranbir Kapoor acted in a movie called Rockstar. This story... Continue Reading →
