Goodbye, 2013

31st December 2013

“It is a curious thing, the death of a loved one. We all know that our time in this world is limited, and that eventually all of us will end up underneath some sheet, never to wake up. And yet it is always a surprise when it happens to someone we know. It is like walking up the stairs to your bedroom in the dark, and thinking there is one more stair than there is. Your foot falls down, through…

The Next Step

19th May 2011

Back when I was in college.. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist) .. my friends would joke about my obsession to stay organized. In final year, this was symbolized by my kick-ass pink folder which a friend gave me as a christmas present.The fact that it contained all my notes and handouts never translated into me getting the highest marks or anything amazingly special. At the end of the day, it was just a folder filled with plastic sheets that held a…

Things people never tell you about college

16th May 2011

I’m officially a graduate! Now I can dispense college-related advice 🙂 I might say things like ..  Never take the canteen for granted. Sometimes, you may disagree with its choices and leave, but once you realise that the KFC down the road is just too high maintainance, you’ll go running back. Teachers have favourites, no matter what they tell you. The sooner you accept this, the better. Then its up to you if you want to be one of those…

Just A Writer

14th March 2011

Two days ago, I turned on my Kindle 2 (recently handed down to me after the ‘rents acquired a Kindle 3 – with a gorgeous new burgundy cover that I’m so in love with) to try to get through some boring, blah reading material for college. Instead, I see that at some point during the day, my father had put  Wil Wheaton’s ‘Just A Geek’ on it, which he had finished reading in one shot the night before. Now, I’ve…

I love that I do not take things lightly

15th February 2010

An excerpt from Eve Ensler’s book “I Am an Emotional Creature: The Secret Life of Girls Around the World”. Thank you Gaurav for making me listen to this! I love being a girl. I can feel what you’re feeling as you’re feeling it inside the feeling before. I am an emotional creature. Things do not come to me as intellectual theories or hard-shaped ideas. They pulse through my organs and legs and burn up my ears. I know when your…

If this were Facebook..

10th June 2009

..this would say : Geetanjali Chitnis is back from her blogging hiatus. Let me say that a) the hiatus was totally unplanned for and b) I have no idea why I’m blabbing about the hiatus but then c) I’ve always wanted to make one of these hello-I-am-back-from-my-hiatus-did-you-miss-me-oh-say-you-did-please kind of posts. ANYWAY. Lately, I’ve been feeling kind of..old. It might have something to do with the fact that I was a “working” woman for a month, since I interned at one…
