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.
The sun rays sweep over her face reflecting the 100 feet glass plane of what must be a million dollar company. Crawled like a baby in the womb is her on the bed made of red bricks. She turns around to avoid the early morning sun, only to tumble the leftovers from the day before.
The glimmering sun has lit up the whole place.
It is something that I see every other day, I get into my bike plug in my earphones and drape layers and layers of clothing over my face, until it looks like a zombie’s head. I then wear my coolers, which by the way is the first thing that I got for myself from my salary, put on my helmet and start.
As the soothing music from Indira fills my ears, the city unfolds right before my eyes.
I cut across the signal to the left…

She walked slowly by the rain-kissed sidewalks, lit brightly by the neon lights of shops, bars, and restaurants. Rains in Chennai were her favorite, she jumped every puddle balancing her extremely large bag in one hand and her laptop in another. With every step, a light would go off or a baffling sound of the... Continue Reading →
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.

It's okay. Trust me. It's okay to not like something that the whole world finds interesting. It's okay to adjust to your monotonous job. It's okay to quit and do whatever you want.

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.
I stare at the screen - immobilized. I see the words etched across, mouth gaping, eyes stained and dumbfounded. It is a blatant truth that I have been scorning, overlooking and passing all my life.
