The Song Remains the Same

Posted on 11 Sep 2015 under Random

Disclaimer: This is a fairly pointless post. Also, it unfortunately has nothing to do with the Led Zeppelin song of the same name. The other day, I was driving somewhere and something odd happened. I have a list of songs that are special to me. These are slow, relaxing songs that I’ve put together in […]

Various (Really) Random Things

Posted on 04 Sep 2015 under Random

I couldn’t think of a proper topic to write about this week. The muse has been absent all week long, too. So, here’s a list of random things that I’ve been meaning to write about, but haven’t been able to flesh out into independent blog posts that could stand on their own. The Logical Indian […]

The Simple Joys of a Saturday Morning

Posted on 29 Aug 2015 under Random

Wake up around 8 am to the sound of rain drops. Walk over to the bedroom window to look out at a grey sky morning, mild mist and fog covering the runway of the airport in the distance. Love the fact that I live on the eleventh floor. Watch the cars and auto-rickshaws drive along […]

The problem with people like Dr APJ Abdul Kalam

Posted on 20 Aug 2015 under Random

This post has been partly inspired by this fairly brilliant Zen Pencils comic. The problem with people like Dr APJ Abdul Kalam telling us that anything is possible if we strive for it is that that statement is patently wrong. No, we are not all alike. Some of us are limited in our abilities, others […]

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?

Posted on 10 Oct 2014 under Random

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 […]
