A Reason to Celebrate

“No matter what the universe has in store, it cannot take away from the fact that you were born. You’ll have some joy and some pain, and all the other experiences that make up what it’s like to be a tiny part of a grand cosmos. No matter what happens next, you were here. And…

Musings of a locked down Research Scholar

With everyone talking about mental health these days, I thought I would pen down my experience on the subject. Being a PhD research scholar, I have had my fair share of these demons. I have been a good student throughout my life and was accepted to an elite engineering school as a PhD candidate. My…

How To Build An Awesome Lifestyle You’ve Always Wanted

Lifestyle is a broad term that encompasses how one lives, what they eat, who they interact with, and what their activities are. You cannot classify lifestyle into one thing. It’s an attitude of living that includes and affects every single detail of your life. With the constant changes in our life, there is always one…

kairosclerosis

The moment you realize that you’re currently happy—consciously trying to savor the feeling—which prompts your intellect to identify it, pick it apart and put it in context, where it will slowly dissolve until it’s little more than an aftertaste. Coined in 2012 by John Koenig in The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, a project, to create…

Moriturism

The insomnia-borne jolt of awareness that you will die, that these passing years aren’t just scenes from a dress rehearsal, rounds of an ongoing game or chapters in a story you’ll be telling later, but are footprints being lapped by the steadily gathering tide of an unfathomable abyss, which still wouldn’t wash out the aftertaste…

Dreams to Discoveries

“Dream, dream, dream. Dreams transform into thoughts and thoughts result in action”- these are the words of our former President- the Missile Man of India, Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam during an interaction with students. He was a great dreamer, and he motivated the younger generation of the nation to dream high. But his…

Embrace the Journey

We often go hard on ourselves when we realize that we’re not where we want to be, for whatever reason. We don’t blame the cracks in the road, or the storms that caused us to trip, we only blame ourselves. The thing is, the concept of blaming should be erased from our souls. Finding anything…

Ambedo

A kind of melancholic trance in which you become completely absorbed in vivid sensory details—raindrops skittering down a window, tall trees leaning in the wind, clouds of cream swirling in your coffee—briefly soaking in the experience of being alive, an act that is done purely for its own sake. Coined in 2012 by John Koenig…

Klexos

Your life is written in indelible ink. There’s no going back to erase the past, tweak your mistakes, or fill in missed opportunities. When the moment’s over, your fate is sealed. But if look closer, you notice the ink never really dries on any of our experiences. They can change their meaning the longer you…

Bloom

How familiar we are with darkness can be quite surprising at times. You sit there and wonder how someone that looks so alive can actually be so melancholic. I believe that this darkness is what sets the right contrast for us to see clearly. But our role doesn’t end there, we don’t just survive and…

Thoughts of a Wanderer

Just as the title “Thoughts of a Wanderer” suggests, this book is an encapsulation of thoughts the writer as a wanderer- going through life, is offering to share. And I think most of us will be able to relate to these thoughts because we are all going through varied experiences and thought processes as we…

Anemoia

Imagine stepping through the frame into a sepia-tinted haze, where you could sit on the side of the road and watch the locals passing by. Who lived and died before any of us arrived here, who sleep in some of the same houses we do, who look up at the same moon, who breathe the…
