Chandni Raat (Ali Sethi)

I love the smell of love. I love the drunkenness. I love how annoying it is. I love how wonderfully coy. Did I mention how annoying it is? And maybe just as much obsessive? But. I love being lovesick. Always have. I feel like I've finally begun to function. The world is rosy. Life is... Continue Reading →

Sabse Khatarnaak (Pash)

What makes us human? As the year comes to an end and I'm socially pushed towards thinking of all the good things and the bad things of the year two thousand eighteen, my mind wanders off to the otherwise routine thoughts I have on any other day of the year. Such as: "I could probably... Continue Reading →

Tera Naam Nahi (Nida Fazli)

Could someone just live my life on my behalf? I wonder sometimes what a relief it would be. The trouble isn't the hardships of life, but the emptiness in it. There are days when I would just be grateful if I could feel something. I truly have witnessed life pass by. Day after day, every... Continue Reading →

Dil Dhoondhta Hai

I've been very restless lately. I've wanted to read the Gita for the longest time (even though I have a theory about the timing of it, but then that's for later), BUT then there is also Tolstoy, Pratchett, Ludlum, Ken Robinson, Nietzsche, Bukowski, Kahneman, Ayn Rand, Bono, Milan Kundera (and more) on my bedside. Hold... Continue Reading →

Postmortem Ki Report

Sometimes it takes a very small knife to make a very deep wound. Sometimes it takes a very few words, very few literary weapons, to cut through you and remind you of all the things that aren't perfect- outside of your perceivably large, tiny world. That's what this did to me. Here's Postmortem ki Report by the... Continue Reading →

Main Nadi Hun

I drafted this post in July 2017. 'Drafted' is not the right word, actually. More like 'puked' these words out. I'm not entirely sure why I wrote this, but I think it stems from some fundamental thought that I believe we as humans have carried within us. And it compelled me to think if the...

The Delete Button.

I have lately been very fascinated with the human mind. I think we are all rather predictable. 99% of us. I will elaborate on the 99 first. The 99 think like the rest of us. The 99 do things that secure people do. They have first aid boxes at home. They get at least 7... Continue Reading →

Aapki Yaad Aati Rahi

So little to give away, I thought. What more was left? After all that I'd been through, what did I have left to give away? And so I smiled. Love's a funny business. Always has been. And what's the collateral damage to loving? Memories. Wouldn't we all just be better off if we had none?... Continue Reading →

Jaane De

Many years ago, there was a guy who knew little about life. No matter how hard he tried, things never seemed to come together. Love, was his worship. Not surprisingly, it didn't last very long. A few months ago I heard he had another heartbreak. A few months ago, I heard that he still tried.... Continue Reading →
