The clock keeps ticking. It has never stopped and it will never stop either. Seconds turn to minutes to hours and just like that, an entire day had passed before you can fully realize it. Time works in mysterious ways. It's like a jigsaw puzzle that you can't seem to complete. But then again, we … Continue reading Food for thought #8: Why are we obsessed with time?
The clock on her wall read 10 minutes past 11. It was nearing midnight. Street dogs were howling and wailing over God-alone-knows-what! She sat on her bed, with her face turned to the laptop in front of her. Her eyes were struggling to stay open. If her eyes were capable of speech, they would have … Continue reading Drifting off…
Some people can make you forget time, and gift you with moments and memories… moments and memories so precious that you wish there was a way to turn back time and experience them all over again. Some people can make even a second feel like an hour or more. Their presence and actions can make … Continue reading People… (Part 2 of 2)
While humans might be the same intrinsically (I mean, composed of flesh and bones), they can be worlds apart from when it comes to character. Some people are like gooseberries. They might seem bitter at first, but the more you get to know them, the sweeter they become. Some people are like steaming mugs of … Continue reading People… (Part 1 of 2)
In retrospect, things can seem so much easier and uncomplicated. One can beat oneself about the fact that they could have done a lot of things differently. Time and experience can bring us a little bit closer to wisdom. Happiness can't be bought and it most certainly isn't received when we look back on our … Continue reading A bunch of random thoughts
They say that when one door closes, another opens. But does it.. really? Often we might ourselves trapped when one door closes and another one doesn't open. Maybe, we should check if any of the windows are open instead. Life can be unpredictable and challenging like that. Or, maybe we should even think about smashing … Continue reading Food for Thought #4: When one door closes…
Until you turn 18, you dream of the moment when you will finally become an adult. You'll find yourself looking forward to that moment when people will stop treating you like a child. At last, you can have a bank account in your own name, get a driving license and so much more. The possibilities … Continue reading Food for Thought #3: Life – not an easy journey!
For today's Stream of Consciousness, Linda, our lovely host has selected the prompt - zz. Our mission is to find a word with double-z in it and use it in our post. Like all SoCS posts, the trick is to keep writing without any editing. The first thing that came to my mind is the … Continue reading SoCS – Zz
For today's Stream of Consciousness, the prompt word that Linda has chosen is "fan". The trick is to keep writing without any editing. And right now, I can't think of anything to write. I am not a fan of so many things. If I were to make a list, it would include chicken liver, heavy … Continue reading SoCS – Fan
I have completed two weeks of being confined to my home (unless you count the occasional grocery run, and when I have to go out to hand over the garbage). Life has taken a completely different direction. I went from having a completely packed schedule to being suddenly free with all the time in the … Continue reading Life (lockdown) diaries #5: Going out (even for groceries!) seems like so much trouble
Good will triumph over evil, they said. Always, they said. That's how I first came across the word "triumph". In my little mind, the word seemed like a powerful talisman. As a child with rose-tinted glasses, I was gullible. I believed in the seemingly foolproof assurance that evil will always be defeated. But maybe, they … Continue reading Life diaries #4: Good vs. Evil – a rambling
Recently, I had the "pleasure" of traveling the 690km from Bangalore to Thiruvanathapuram in the extreme rear seat of a sleeper bus. And yes, it was the lower berth. Fortunately for me, I had outgrown the "will-definitely-puke on a long distance trip in a car/bus" phase in life. But nevertheless, that fateful journey still seemed … Continue reading Life diaries #2: I guess this is what a pan tossed pizza feels like! 🙆
Where does the soul go once the life ceases to exist? I wonder if a departed soul goes to heaven or hell, or if it's simply reborn... all set for yet another journey from birth till death. They do call it the circle of life after all! Life is unpredictable, so is death. A moment … Continue reading SoCS – Where?
They say that the first impression is the best impression. But I tend to disagree with that. First impressions aren't always the best. That's what I feel. Sometimes, nope scratch that, most of the time, it takes so long to really know a person. Many a time, our first impression about a person isn't always … Continue reading First impressions!
