Stranded by the sea, there was water everywhere. One couldn't tell where the deep blue sea ended and the sky started. She* stood there like one of those statues watching the horizon. The monstrous waves hit her as hard as they could. The smell of salt in the breeze filled her nostrils stifling her. Her... Continue Reading →
Every girl fantasizes about her dream wedding. I used to as well, then, I grew up. I have always wanted to have a beach wedding with fairy lights and lamps all along the path, a beautiful centerpiece, a satin arch with white and blue flowers, a themed bar and a dining table by the shore....

Life can sometimes be a Polaroid. Static, happy, deceptive, dated and nobody knows what happened before or after the moment. Sometimes that's great because nobody needs to know the roller coaster ride that your mind is taking you through. It's easy to wrap everything that you feel in a beautiful gift wrapper and present it to the world rather than talking about it.
I remember reading this somewhere when you ask a child to color something, she would happily pick a crayon and start coloring. She'd go out of the lines, fill the picture with colors from her weird imagination. You'd see blue elephants, red fields, and orange oceans. As she grows up people start molding her. They will want the child to color within the lines and see things they way they are - elephants are supposed to be grey, fields: green and oceans: blue.
How was your first kiss? It is the sweetest memory that I have. We did not kiss for long, like what they show in movies, it was a matter of a few seconds. It was a beautiful rainy evening and my favorite music was playing in the cafe. With her by my side, it was bliss. We had been dating for a while then and she wanted to get some coffee. I was 17, and the only mode of transportation was to walk. I was holding her hand and somewhere I knew I was doing the right thing. I reached out to her and pulled her, one hand on her waist and the other on her neck. I closed my eyes and let my whole body melt, I could feel her wet hair brushing my cheek. There was love, solidity, fierceness, and passion. It was something that I had never felt before and something that I will cherish for eternity. I might have kissed a million times after that, but the first time, it was special.
Growing up has its own perks. You realize that you can be this strong independent person, manage your bills, sort out your investments, audit your taxes etc. Sometimes in the middle of all that you look at yourself and realize "Woah, I have actually changed". And, suddenly you are totally fine with it. A lot of things change as you evolve into a better or not so better human being. Isn't change the only constant thing? Here are a few things that I really liked back then but ended up having an aversion towards it in the recent times. If we are on the same page, do let me know in the comments section below.
Together they were about to begin the first chapter of their life, a chapter that no one has read before, a chapter that I know would grow to be more and more beautiful with every moving day. The rains were hitting the ground as loud as it can. Cuddled in my warm blanket, I was... Continue Reading →
There is always an unspoken war between your heart and your mind. Your mind would tell you to go by the practicality while your heart would beg you to follow the things you love. When in a trance whether to follow the heart or the brain, gut feeling comes in. Here is what your mind... Continue Reading →
She promised herself that she wouldn't fall in love. But it was 3 A.M and they were laughing too hard and she felt happy in a different way after a long time. Then, it struck her that she was screwed! A lot of things can happen when you fall in love, especially with a writer.... Continue Reading →
Are you happy about the fact that he chose you over another girl? Don't be. That's the worst thing he has done to you. Life is not a race, to be happy that you won. In fact, the loss is yours. He actually put you in a position where he had to choose, think about it.
Deciding your life by swiping right or left can often leave you bewildered and thus get you thinking, "Why can I not date a co-worker?" Having a crush at your workplace is fine, but the moment it crosses that line you should know what you are signing up for. Sure, when you spend 60 to... Continue Reading →
