Twin TroubleTwin Trouble is a poem depicting the qualities of a Gemini in the shades of black and white, narrated and penned by me. I welcome your feedback and constructive criticism on this video narrative that I put together. Here you go!Two souls reside deep inside of meTrust, can you, what your naked eyes see?Talk to me, let me listenHear me out, once you’re doneFollow me along on the path less travelledLots of mysteries yet to be unravelledFickle minded, I change my path oftenWalk with me, once my heart softensMy mood, my wit, my myriad shenanigansQuirky and unusual, my ideas of funI’d plunge into deep watersTo recover my treasuresBe watchful, be breathlessI dance in the darknessI rule the game of love; words are my dimeAmuse me, my friend, or begone with…

my-to-do-list-for-2017-goals

Hello! I have a lot to show and tell(like things on my to-do list for 2017), but please accept my new year greetings first! The start of the New Year was a little off for me as I suffered from severe cold and hence, I’m so late in extending my greetings to you all! Putting that aside, I hope you all had a great time and are thoroughly enjoying the new start.Now, the first question anyone asks you after wishing you a happy new year is about your resolutions! I’m sure this word is jinxed, and a resolution can go only as far as a month, of course, exceptions exist.So, this year, I decided on a few realistic goals rather than being supremely unrealistic in the heat of the moment. I decided to continue and start a few healthy habits rather than resolutions. Also…

the-story-of-sad-winter-dread

I’m certain that I like winter more than summer, all comfy and snuggly, but sometimes, there is this sinking feeling inside of me, that spreads a cold, colder than normal, all over and around me. I don’t know if you understand this feeling, but it just breaks me down, it brings out isolation in a creepier way like everything is lost, that all around me is sadness. And it takes a lot of time to get away, it stays, for a dangerously longer period than I’d expect and keeps me incredibly sad.It wears off, though slowly, but it does. And then the night falls, I’m back to the silence, confined within four walls while everyone else sleeps, and then it comes back, the sinking feeling. I’m certain that I like winter better than summer, but this is something I never feel in the summers…

What is that one memory that jogs back to your mind when you meet up with the best of your friends and have the time of your life that brought you all together?For my gang, we have several such memories but what truly brought all of us close were the grades 8, 9 and 10. We were, in-a-way, the cool gang but mind you, not mean girls.Our friendship blossomed with the school tour in grade 8 where we didn’t just share rooms but shared our deepest secrets and life has never been better.Amongst other things, the one memory that jumps up in all our minds as soon as we think of tour is the one where we forgot Shripali and the blame is on me!I was the one who locked the door after checking no one else was in the room, the area…

Why is marriage such a pressing issue? Mostly in small or second tier towns, though there can be exceptions and I certainly do not suggest that the people of big towns like Mumbai or Delhi don’t wish to marry off their daughters as soon as they are of age, like the one I belong to, a girl, as soon as she attains an age of twenty, the talks of her marriage start hovering around the house as well as the entire neighbourhood. In some cases, the age above is replaced by the legal age, that is, 18. The mentality, as I reckon, is still very mediocre as regards independence and marriage in the minds of the people. Source: azquotes.comAlthough the world has moved on about having a girl as a burden and in some cases, a curse, we live in that part of the world…

Source: socialmediabuzz.comHello, Old Friend!Remember the times, when we used to make the trends?Laughing about anything and everything, not caring if it made sense?When school was about everything but studies?Copying homework, the hour before submission?Got curious who’d be lucky to accompany the birthday girl/boy around the school?Chasing each other around the corridors, even if it made us look like fools?When we trotted along the opposite corridor to drink water just to avoid going back to the classes?And lying to each other while fighting over class passes?Remember the time when we used to do those stupid yoga poses on the ground?And laugh at each other, giggles filling the ground, from one end to another?When we all stood together for the class, making teachers mad?When we signed our own tests and diaries, be it mom’s or dad…

After taking a long break and lazing around in the monsoon sun (yes, monsoon doesn’t bring rain here in Rajasthan, just exclusive monsoon sunshine), I have a great deal to share with you. Especially about the vacation, I went on recently with my family. With our house in making and several other responsibilities, how we convinced my father to agree for this vacation, I have no idea. Thankful to my mother’s friend in Sangli, Maharashtra, who’s daughter’s wedding invitation caused us to think about taking this extended vacation of 7 days in total.When my father showed the slightest signs of approval, without further ado, I booked the plane tickets for our journey to Pune from Jaipur for the 7th of July and our return tickets by train from Mumbai to Jodhpur on 13th of July.Day 1:After traveling from Jodhpur to Jaipur via…

Do You Support The Right To Die?Euthanasia means the painless killing of a patient suffering from an incurable and painful disease or in an irreversible coma.In a recent conversation that I had with my teacher, here’s what I had to say: Death isn’t cruel. Sometimes, it’s rather peaceful.For someone suffering, death is the only medicine. Would you call it cruel? It’s the way it chooses to arrive that is cruel.The most obvious question:Only for the one who is relieved. What about the related people?The related people thank the stars for this help that they didn’t have to do themselves. At least someone, the one who truly cared to see them relieved. Why don’t they make it legal? Is it really wrong? I wonder.I think it’s rather selfish of related people to think that…
