Why is it so fashionable to trash Valentine’s Day?

9th February 2014

(Photo credit:  When I was in my early teens, I remember having a conversation with a friend who was a good 8-10 years older than me. S/he said “Don’t lose this feeling you have towards romance”. At that time I found it odd because for as long can remember, I have always been in love with the concept of, well, love! After I turned 13, I would devour Mills & Boon books religiously.  The librarian at the neighborhood library would…

Pieces of the Wall

11th August 2011

I’ve never had the courage to write about Rahul Dravid. Like actually sit down and write a piece he deserves, like I’d want to. Maybe someday I will, but till then I am more than happy to read some wonderful pieces of writing on him that pop up now and then. Since I find myself going back to some of them quite often, I thought I’d make a list of some of the (in my opinion) really brilliant ones. I’m…

Finishing a book

3rd July 2011

I have forgotten what it feels like to finish a book. The physical turning of a page, or the filling up of that electronic status bar. It’s all the same to me, really. At this point I just want to pick up something and read it from start to finish and I just can’t seem to do that any more. I’ve never had to beg anybody to lay my hands on something interesting to read, I’ve been lucky that way.…

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…

Education Life Loves Writing


12th March 2011

Who have I been, the last three years? I was a film maker. I agonized over the story, the casting, the music, the editing. I spent a couple of evenings hiding in the editing room with my group, huddled up in front of the Mac as we fixed last minute glitches. There was even an evening where one nice member of the support staff let us stay on, on the condition that we needed to keep all the lights off…
