Independence!

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….

Life Update: Design School? Moving Out?

DISCLAIMER:  I AM ALREADY COMPLETED TWO WEEKS OF SCHOOLING BY THE TIME THIS BLOG POST SHALL BE UP. THIS WAS WRITTEN ABOUT A MONTH AND A HALF AGO. So, I  graduated from High School! Okay. Let that sink in. I thought of taking a drop year after school as I wanted to travel and learn new…

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…

What’s on my MacBook Pro?

I have a MacBook Pro (2017) which is my go-to for everything in life. I absolutely love carrying my MacBook everywhere I go because of its portability and utility. I have my world on my MacBook, and here is most of what’s in there: Clean My Mac Clean My Mac is a fantastic app for…

The #StarbucksKolkataHype and what years of colonisation did to us!

DISCLAIMER: THIS POST IS NOT WRITTEN WITH THE INTENT TO OFFEND ANY INDIVIDUAL, COMPANY, BRAND, COUNTRY, COMMUNITY OR ETHNIC GROUPS. PLEASE READ RESPONSIBLY AND AT YOUR OWN RISK. Starbucks launched in Kolkata, the former capital of India. It is needless to say that the city went gaga over the blah American coffeehouse chain, pretty much…

My First Murakami!

It is a shameful thing to say that this is my first Murakami read! Of all the many books I have read and all the authors that I have trusted my imaginations with, not trying out one Murakami novel/short story is a very disgraceful thing (atleast that is what my bibliophile self convinced me to…

4 Halloween Things I Have Never Done (But Always Wanted To)

First up, I live in India. Halloween? It is not a thing here. Unlike Christmas, which is a very popular festival (especially in Kolkata, the city I live in), the British colonialism somehow forgot to leave behind Halloween altogether! We celebrate Diwali/Kali Puja here (dubbed the largest festival of India). Even though this alternative celebration…

2 Years On WordPress + iPhone X Giveaway!

It is absolutely unbelievable that it has been 2 years that I shifted to WordPress! (Before which I blogged on Blogger for about six months) I wouldn’t have chosen otherwise if I were given a second chance. It has been wonderful working with WordPress and they have helped me in every way possible. Thanks to…

The Time I was in a Professional Theatre

The best part of being acting on stage is being live and seeing the feedback of your audience, their applause and aww, their sadness and anger. Somehow, all this vibe finds its way back into your acting again, thus coming full circle. All these reasons and more have always made me feel connected and interested…

The Time I started Blogging for UNICEF

I was always interested to work with UNICEF. It was last month that the opportunity came from nowhere. I was scrolling through the Instagram feed like a lazy dog that I am. Drinking coffee. Contemplating life. This is when I clicked on UNICEF’s  story by mistake. It was something along the lines of “Do you…

How I got over a Reader’s Block!

I started reading a lot of books together last month, moreover, my friend got me addicted to this TV series called Sense8 so I had a little too much on my plate. I was really into the books I was reading, all of them had me hooked. I was more or less halfway through all…

I Did Not Change

I deliberately do not want to give an introduction to this poem as I don’t really think this piece is very objective. Hope you like it.   I DID NOT CHANGE I did not change, believe me, I did what was overdue, I did not change but now I see, That I have changed for…
