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 →
