Just Do It

There will be a few times in your life when all your instincts will tell you to do something, something that defies logic, upsets your plans, and may seem crazy to others. When that happens, you do it. Listen to your instincts and ignore everything else. Ignore logic, ignore the odds, ignore the complications, and…

Gnossienne

A moment of awareness that someone you’ve known for years still has a private and mysterious inner life, and somewhere in the hallways of their personality is a door locked from the inside, a stairway leading to a wing of the house that you’ve never fully explored—an unfinished attic that will remain maddeningly unknowable to…

The Blue Umbrella

The umbrella was like a flower, a great blue flower that had sprung up on the dry brown hillside. In exchange for her lucky leopard’s claw pendant, Binya acquires a beautiful blue umbrella that makes her the envy of everyone in the village, especially Ram Bharosa, the shopkeeper. It is the prettiest umbrella in the…

Things Left Unsaid

So much to say yet so little are these words, phrases and sentences don’t make sense anymore. Wish you’d been more around to hear this, though little by little everything tore apart. You know we both saw it coming yet we never spoke about it, we both wanted it so badly yet we destroyed it…

Science Made Simple 2- Ammu & Kanha’s Crown

The long-awaited vacations had begun. But Seema knew she wouldn’t have rest or find free time- mending her three naughty kids by itself would take a lot of time. “Mom…Mom…”, Seema could feel the impatience in Ammu’s voice. “Mom, see our Kanha wearing the peacock feather….come, come. See what we have done.” “From where did…

My World

All I wanted was to live a life where I could be me, and be okay with that. I had no need for material possessions, money or even close friends with me on my journey. I never understood people very well anyway, and they never seemed to understand me very well either. All I wanted…

Meraki Pahadi House – Run for Nature!

Travelling is always a good idea. I have been travelling to different places across India and internationally since 2014. Locally, Himachal Pradesh is my personal favourite destination. While Uttarakhand is my native place, I see myself more inclined to Himachal. There’s always a new respite of thought with it. However, just to get a little…

Rückkehrunruhe

The feeling of returning home after an immersive trip only to find it fading rapidly from your awareness—to the extent you have to keep reminding yourself that it happened at all, even though it felt so vivid just days ago—which makes you wish you could smoothly cross-dissolve back into everyday life, or just hold the…

You Only Live Once?

Imagine you disappear. Twenty years later, three people are looking for you. One is dying to meet you again. The other wishes you had never met them. The third wishes to have met you at least once. You are one person. Aren’t you? But you are not the same for each one of them. Find…
