The Narrow Minded

Posted on 21 Mar 2015 under Random

George Carlin is an intelligent man, and I’ve read a number of quotes attributed to him that I found memorable. For instance: Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac? It’s true, isn’t it? Often times in traffic, I end up […]

I Don’t Know

Posted on 11 Mar 2015 under Random

I stand aloof from the chaos, watching impassively as a million thoughts and opinions whiz past. Some are stronger than others, louder and more forceful, dragging along a bunch of voluntary and involuntary followers. Some shine bright with the confidence of righteousness while others linger tentatively, looking this way and that for acceptance. I know […]

The Parting (incomplete)

Posted on 29 Dec 2014 under Random

Two lovers stood at the end of their road, contemplating the journey they had completed. They looked beyond the horizon, at the setting sun lighting the sky in gold and purple hues. Looked one into the eye of the other and mused: Well, here we are, then, the melody’s fading out. At the end, we […]

Morning Calm

Posted on 09 Nov 2014 under Random

I love mornings. Give me an early morning any day, even if I have to give up on revelry the night before. There’s just something so calming, so alluring about waking up Sunday morning, drifting out into a quiet house, untouched yet by the warming rays of the sun. You take it all in: the […]

Wouldn’t it be nice?

There’s one thing I’ve experienced about music that might resonate with you. Every once in a while, I get positively obsessed with a particular song or album or band. I listen to it every day, and fall so in love with it that I can’t imagine a day without listening to it/them. This absolute infatuation […]

The Passenger

Posted on 21 Jun 2014 under Random

The passenger found an empty seat and sat down. The train left the station and soon picked up speed. The passenger felt a tiny bit of anxiety; he wasn’t sure where the train was headed. He looked out the window. They passed the sprawling country and entered tunnels that took the train underground and through the […]

So here I am again, a voice without a box, thoughts without a soul, morality without a soul. In this moment, I exist, complete and sufficient, like a mathematical proof, like all I’ll need is this knowledge of being. Tomorrow, it will all change. But that’s ok, because here in the much vaunted ‘here and […]

Find Yourself

Posted on 28 Apr 2014 under Random

How many times have you heard or read about people who take time off from their busy lives to “find themselves”? Kids taking time off between graduation and first job. Adults taking sabbatical from work. People retiring early, from professional life and sometimes from social life as well, in order to be one with their […]

The End

Posted on 18 Apr 2014 under Random

Quite a long time back, I read an article that claimed that the weight of a person’s body immediately before and after death reduces by about 10 grams. The romantics claim that this is the weight of a human soul. 10 grams. That means that essentially, we are nothing more than a bag of skin […]

Always Stand Out.

Posted on 12 Apr 2014 under Random

At night, before I sleep, I realise I’m one amongst a billion, a solitary thread that contributes to the fabric of life. It gives me warmth and comfort to know that I contribute somehow, however insignificant it may be. And that gives me a reason to be me. That because of my uniqueness, I add […]
