Coming to college was somehow not real until the very last week before I moved to Bangalore. I was really happy that I was leaving home, actually. Independence is luring before you understand how much of a utopian concept it is, isn’t it? But the last few days, it just all became clear to me….

For the love of Don! – A play review

It was an evening like any other. Watching a play with my parents was almost a bi-monthly routine for me. As I walked through the cobbled path of AOFA, I was thinking of many things, but nowhere in my mind did I have a thought that represented the magic that I saw on stage that…

Judgement Day

Day 256 What are we? Nope. I am not pretending to be super woke all of a sudden, out of nowhere. I have probably been asking this question since I saw the last season of Black Mirror. No, a little before that, when I read 1984 by George Orwell. Or, maybe, just maybe, very recently…

Book Review: A Fragile Thread Of Hope by Pankaj Giri

It is after a long time that I picked up a book by an Indian author. Thank the universe that conspired to bring me to this book and Pankaj, a wonderful person! I can not wait to hold the words back until the end of the post, I loved the book! The Story:  “In the autumn…

Fandom Box Review ft. GeekAparato

I was absolutely delighted when GeekAparato wanted me to review their fandom box! It was to be full of geeky goodies from the month’s theme and I couldn’t wait… Geek Aparato is a one of a kind fandom box. On their website, it says, “…in India, it is very difficult to purchase a lot of…

New Year, New Beginning!

I know I am a little late on the New Year blog spree, but I was so very busy with a lot of things (like exams and college applications) for the past two months that I got no time to blog at all. Also, I am on an emotional journey right now which is another…

REDBUBBLE Christmas Sticker Haul!

I got a new laptop a few months ago and I was dying to give it a makeover. I am generally very protective of my devices and hence I did not want to put on a skin because that is as good as no protection at all! That is when RedBubble came to the rescue….
