Ablaze 

My world was a fleeting blur with several moons I saw red everywhere, red even the whitest of cartoons  What was a black blanket in the night turned into a mirage of colourful dancing halos  Things too far I seldom could see Whats in front seemed too good to be  The doc said I was…

The Timorous Walk

This is the shy walk that people do when there’s nothing to be shy or secretive about.  Everyone, and I repeat, everyone has taken their phone into the washroom to listen to music or browse the net or whatever else you can use the phone for.  As I walk down the hostel corridor towards the…

Let’s go back to the time when I was in the tenth grade which was in 2012 I think.  The school had planned an excursion and I HAD to go.  Excursions are the best! Why? Because that’s the one reason why the whole of your grade packs their bags and wears everything other than uniforms…

The time has come

Doing a wicked dance between hobby and profession  Here I stand as the Jack of all trades but master of none.   I’d love to hear stories about your struggle to choose between a hobby and a profession.  As I traipse back into the world of medical education, I feel a tug at my heart…

Druthers #1

Volition, a choice.  I’m absolutely enamoured by the availability of this function of life.  In fact, if there’s one mathematical function I’d call dibs on, it would be f(choice).    This is going to be my new series, if I may call it so. Each time I plan on telling you about a singular choice…

Never too long

Summer is known for one thing mostly and that’s vacation, at least for most of us.  For the sad souls that don’t have such benefits, I genuinely am sorry for your loss.  While it is common knowledge that this is the longest vacation anyone gets, it’s not surprising that for some of us, the longest…

Life is a journey not a destination, there are no mistakes, just chances we take – A beautiful day by India.Arie Sometimes it hits like a car crash and it’s too late to reverse – A little too much by Natasha Bedingfield Few thousand miles, is an ocean away but I see the sun rise, just…

Best Horror Story

Sitting in front of the laptop, I filled each word into the online form with utmost caution.  The words “provision of false information is a punishable offence” made matters worse. No amount of cross checking seemed to be enough because my mind, though not idle, was still a devil’s workshop.  My name was Amulya.  My…

The Doll Thrillers

This is going to be a good roast. Brace yourselves people! Annabelle If I were a mother and I had to pick a toy for my child, I’d go for something like a soft toy instead of a doll that was dragged through the filth of the entire country, looks like the guy from Texas…

The Fast And The Furious

The fast and the furious.  It’s only today that I was able to fathom the reason behind this name.  Honestly, I don’t know whether I should be happy that Brian let Dominic go or offended that his status from that of a cop stooped down to that of a renegade.  Nevertheless, I did discover that…

Who Am I? 

Who am I? What goes on behind the screens in the making of this blog? What kind of a person am I?  The most important thing for the success of ones blog is to put forth a part of you each time you write something.  Everyone has a style and knowing the author and their…

Mother’s day

Judging by the throngs of people actively changing their Facebook statuses and WhatsApp profile pictures, I came to a safe conclusion that mother’s day was yesterday.  Give me a break. I find it hard to remember my own dog’s birthday, who, mind you, I love very much and in such amnesiac circumstances, you can’t hold…
