The Selection

My first read of 2019! Okay so I should have technically finished the first book of A Court of Thorns and Roses first, but the next half definitely wasn’t travel material and therefore I took The Selection by Kiera Cass with me on tour, allowing it to engage me on the flight onward as well as return….

The Biggest Crime

Do you know what the biggest crime you can commit is? Refusing to love and respect yourself. Unless you do that, you really can’t love and respect anyone else. So love and respect yourself!

The Ride of 2018

2018. Where do I even begin? I don’t know what to remember this year by. My wedding year or the year of my big accident. Cause most of 2018 was spent by recovering from that car crash of April 27. On December 15, I joined my old school friends in this extremely enjoyable batch meet,…

Impossible Thought

As I was grating carrots, radishes, turnips and cheese the other day, I peered closely at the minute pieces, wondering if it was possible to recreate the carrots, radishes and turnips and cheese by locating the right pieces and joining them together again.  Can it really be done? Is it really, really possible to fix…

Unpopular Opinions on Love and Relationships

I was challenged by Bala (Author Balakarthiga, whose author interview is my previous post) to list unpopular opinions on love and romance and I have five of them. There is no such thing as love at first sight. You can’t associate something so beautifully built over time, commitment, laughs, common interests, uncommon interests (trust me,…

Author Interview with Balakarthiga

AFour years in the making, Butterfly Met Hurricane by Author Balakarthiga has gone through challenges similar to the one a baby takes up as it makes its way out of its mother’s womb.

Don’t Let Anything Press Your Head

Day after busy day You press my head In an effort to cleanse your hands But what is used to wash away whatever is pressing your head? What is used to destroy your stress the way I destroy harmful microbes of your palms? Darling, I live for my head to be pressed But you shouldn’t…

Our Clumsy Thumbsies

Anyone who watches The Ellen Show must be very aware of the comic segment – Clumsy Thumbsies – where Ellen reads out text messages that are messed up by the very intelligent autocorrect on every smart phone. While I was texting my best friend, Priya Darshni, my autocorrect pitched in its brain to change the word ‘yesterday’…

When I Refused To Love You

Feels like an aeon ago Since I last saw you Your hair is longer Your eyes speak another language Those clothes are new to your wardrobe The tone of your voice is new to my ears Where’s the girl I knew? Where’s the girl who isn’t impervious to constant smiles? You’re different So very different…

She Thinks

She thinks no one likes her. She thinks no one listens to her. She thinks she is of no importance. She thinks she is unattractive. She thinks she only has one friend. She thinks she’d rather throw up than talk out loud. She thinks she’d rather dive under the table than laugh out loud. She…
