The other day, I was wondering if people are actually imaginary creatures. As in, we exist and we know that we exist because we are living our existence. But we can never really know about the other person’s existence. We can know about it but in a way, we will also never know cz we…

Against waves

And then there are times like this. When you wake up to a dark room in the evening, with a churning stomach and a heart like the leftover piece of an old red ballon with no gas. Then, you know that you are sad now, again. After everything you have done, after everything you have…

Chasing cars

It is this night I fear. The night on which I know I can cry through all of it and still there would be tears left. The night my brain refuses to meet logic. The night I  just want to be a child again. The night when even afer knowing everything, I just want to…

Dear love,

Oh dear love, Do you live? Did you ever? Where were you hiding? In the smiles that closed my eyes so bad that I no longer knew that a world existed, Or in those I love you’s which my drunk heart said, holding out my hand trying to touch the edges of his face. The…

Ruins

It felt like someone was playing with all the blood vessels under my palm, my hands, the skin under of my feet. The inside of my stomach felt as though it would curl itself to a spiral. And my heart kept beating. Not fast. It was the sort of beating you just can’t ignore or brush away or…

Lavender

Kavita was like ‘everyone’ else, ‘everyday’ until today. Just like everyone else, she lived by her prescribed role, with her prescribed family, attending the school that was four blocks away from her home in the maps. To her, it felt like it was more. But today was different. Today was the day her memory would…

Oh love, Au Revoir !

Human. The organism that was given a brain and a heart, both. This very fight of the cerebral and the emotional elements inside us, is embedded inside our every thought, you know. A friend of mine, once, rightfully said that we can never really separate the two elements from a thought. Like there can never…

Atithi Devo Bhava ?

This entire article is the description of the thousand different things happening simultaneously in one moment. Basically, it’s just one moment, broken down. Revealing the hidden bags of infinities inside a finite moment. … “Go away. Now.” (what she felt) After hearing that, suddenly she felt like, everything that was said before and everything that…

A place where stories die

The neighbor I saw everyday died outside The window shows me people in circles The inner radius wailing, the outer watching, Talking of Summer days on a Winter night. I wanted to go and see what death was like. To touch a cold face and feel the air under the nose knowing it’s no longer…

Dreams of grey

There were days when I used to listen to Papon. I still listen to Papon, but back then it was different. It was something which I used to consider out of this world. I used to listen to them at nights. During class 10, 11, 12. Those days, when you are supposed to stay up…

In a world where fate lines kiss

We sit side by side amidst the cacophony of this world, amidst floating clouds changing space coordinates on a linear time, we sit inside a bus. slide our head towards each other. our fingers begin to touch their counterparts. sliding somewhere into a dance. your index finger trailing a path through the skin above my…

On ‘not-love’

There’s this strangest thing I realize about love. I just finished watching the movie named Blue is the warmest color. It is a very subtle and delicate movie. One, which should be drunk scene after scene. Slowly. With every slide of the camera. Every frame of it. It gifts you three hours of art. There’s…
