Beginning Today

It's been a long time since I wrote anything, here or anywhere else. Beginning today, I would love to put that to an end. Yes, this time, when the clocks ticks 12 and the ball drops in Times Square and people all over the world holler and take light painting photos for 2017, I would…

My Principal

All through my school life, I have had 3 principals across 2 schools. All of them amazing, but only one of them has managed to leave a lasting impression in my life and stay on even after many others have left. Mr. Thomas Mathew. Well, the reasons why he is so important are many, but…

Eulogy for Time

Time, you ask? Time, you wonder? Time, you speculate? Time, passed away? Time, no more? Time, those incessantly falling sand grains in the hourglass. Time, those tick tocks which have become a background music of your life rather than the base track and the guiding symphony. Yes, it's that time that I talk about. Time,…

For My Dear Friend

So, for what all happened…

They didn't disappoint.  "Writing Space Where do you produce your best writing — at your desk, on your phone, at a noisy café? Tell us how the environment affects your creativity." I actually started on this post last night. On…

Siblings : To Have or Not To Have

I am a lone child and very often when I see siblings bicker and fight, I do not feel a sense of annoyance. Rather, I would feel a sense of longing, a sense that I am missing something divine, a surreal feeling. It's a totally different feel when you know that there is someone other…

Computers. Languages. Animals. And hackers.

Have you heard about, "Survival of the fittest"? Yup. It means that the fittest survives (of course 😛 ) in the direst of circumstances where others falter. You could also say, "When the going gets tough, the tough gets going." And the others stay behind, to be swallowed by the gaping black-hole that is history.…
