Ten years on.

It’s been ten years since our country along with the city that never sleeps, Mumbai, had come to an unexpected and grim halt. I don’t need to describe the horrors that unfolded in those three days, the lives we lost, the screams that rang through the carpeted corridors and the stunned silence thereafter. My sixteen-year-oldContinue reading “Ten years on.”

I am.

  I am so much more than just a broken heart.   I’m the fire that urges you to make something out of your life. I’m the rage you feel when you see dishonesty. I’m the pain that stops you from breathing. I’m fire. I’m rage. I’m pain.   I’m the passion that stirs yourContinue reading “I am.”

Why ‘Outspoken’?

The word that is doing the rounds in most of my social media accounts and now here too – ‘Outspoken’! The name of our team’s in-house public speaking forum at work.

Why are examinations more valued thanContinue reading “Why? Oh why?”

Abounding Passions.

Abounding Passions. You made me write when I lost the touch, You made me smile when my mind was thinking too much, You brought me closer to the real me, You made dark the new sexy! Your soft touch paled my pain, You were my rainbow in the rain, We moved away with the time due,Continue reading “Abounding Passions.”

In love!

My soul sister and me, were wondering the other day ~ Why are we happily single? Is it a phrase we simply use to conform to the world’s standards of the opposite of committed?
