Letter to my best friend. 

Dear best friend,We haven’t exactly been what they call the ideal `best friends forever’, but we have been with each other through thick and thin. You have seen me evolve. Remember the day when that stupid boy insulted me, and I was so adamant on sticking around with him, it was you who pulled me out of that toxic relationship. You laughed when I cried, … Continue reading Letter to my best friend. 

Secrets.

I wish to go on road trips like these where you just stop and wonder how beautiful the view is. You get lost somewhere in the horizon. You feel so overwhelmed yet numb. The silence drains the turbulence that has been going on inside that little head of yours. Every element in this picture is so vast, so infinite, so interminable. But I want to know … Continue reading Secrets.

But it … Continue reading FORGIVE OR FORGET-Which is easier?

If you are  a writer, it is a must-do.

To write a good 500-600 words piece, it roughly takes 3-4 hours minimum, including the editing, selecting the right pictures, adding links.etc. Even the most basic article takes around 1 hour to write. Somedays you produce a masterpiece. And somedays are just the plain, sad ones. Internet is a nasty space. People who haven’t written even 10 lines in their entire lives criticize budding writers … Continue reading If you are  a writer, it is a must-do.

NO.

I am sure most of you must have heard about the #MeToo revolution that is taking the internet by storm. For those who haven’t, Hashtag Me Too is a recent trend raising voice against sexual assault and harassment on social media platforms. Let me be very clear about two things- 1. Men are victims too. Men get raped too. 2. No place is assault-free. Be … Continue reading NO.
