Quiet

There I was sitting on the floor of a cold corridor having had my second anxiety attack. It was 3:00am back home in India and the kindest man I know was on the phone with me listening to me crying as I was unable to breathe. It must have been 4 degrees that night, the... Continue Reading →

Warm Vanilla Sugar, And Other Things

“CALVIN: This whole Santa Claus thing just doesn't make sense. Why all the secrecy? Why all the mystery? If the guy exists why doesn't he ever show himself and prove it? And if he doesn't exist what's the meaning of all this? HOBBES: I dunno. Isn't this a religious holiday? CALVIN: Yeah, but actually, I've got... Continue Reading →

Six Times Over

Maybe it's time for me to stop blogging - this is a thought that came to me many times during this year. Simply because of the fact that it's been 6 years since I started and I'm not sure how far I've come. Although this doesn't come from a sense of worthlessness that dominated 2013...

Day 6: Inflation

It's very hot in the train. I have been sleeping on the uppermost berth, so it's even hotter. There is greater activity this time than the last because a group of 50 Maharashtrians are in our compartment too. The chatter is nice, friendly, and full of camaraderie. I wake up and realise that the whole... Continue Reading →

Probably a new place, an experience to take back home, an incident that you can reflect on or narrate as a story... Continue Reading →

Day 4: Dreams

She is contemplating the whys and hows of what happened to her. It was a simple story but the gravity... Continue Reading →

Day 3: Who do I think I am?

An elephant. But more on that later. In context, I am a tourist who did many tourist-y things today. And if this is going to be one of those posts where I go through the places I visited, it would be very boring for me to write. Who wants to know how beautiful the tea... Continue Reading →

Day 2: Going Away

Day 2 I think what is most striking to a Mumbaikar who travels outside Mumbai is how time just slows down. I have a feeling that if they didn't look at their watches, they can safely finish half a day's work in what would really be 3 hours or so. Where does this grand assumption... Continue Reading →
