A Kiddish Love

We go through four phases in our lives. First is ‘Mimicry’, when we are in our adolesence and learn from others and mimic to become identical. Born as a blank canvas, this is where we pick up a language, religion, habbits, clothing, lifestyle, nuances, and even a palate. Mostly injected through instructions, we are too young to be selective and understand what’s what, let alone what to capture and what not. We are constantly told,


Despair And A Wish

It is the new year and with that it has new promises & anticipations. While promises make our future hopeful, sometimes it’s the past that holds more importance instead. Learnings are the paths we walked on to reach here, and it’s the promises that’ll shape our futures hereon. Thought like these don’t dawn upon someone just like that. What evoked this sudden stroke was a recent quote that was glued to my mind – despair is

O ri nadi, kaha tu chali Do pal toh rukja, oo meri sakhi Chal baith kinaarey pe kuch baatien kartien hai Samajhtey hai jasbaaton ko tere, alfaaz dene ki koshish si kartey hai . .

Love At First Sight

Bhutan is a constant state of meditation. From the first site from the left window of the flight, it captured us. The plane takes a steady path over kempt paddy fields, bracketed in low-rising mountains, with a soothing sight of snow-kissed peaks afar, and ample sunlight from the blue skies, promising a naturally alluring experience to come all through. And then it drifts to take a soft left U-turn through an opening at the end



Before we start, let’s accept it – science is against you, it will fail you!! Science works in a funny way. It provides answers to all possible things, makes all that goes around logical and practical. People swear by it too, yet it fails us at times. And one of those areas is expressing ones emotions properly. Be it expressing one’s love and affection towards someone, describing the sadness from someone’s passing away, appreciation for music, narrating


Why Do I Trek?

A simple question on my last trek, to Roopkund Lake, gave me a deeper perspective on why I have gotten so attached to trekking. My first ever trek was last year, in 2016, to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of The Great Himalayan National Park. And Roopkund was only my fourth. But trekking has been much dearer and enriching a journey than any other travel I’ve had. The one at the Kanchenjunga National Park, another

Blindfolded, Backwards

Rakshabandhan – I’ve stayed away from this one festival and have been quite proud about it as well. I have always found principle flaws in its concept and nature. Much like most of our festivals neither does it make no sense to me nor can I believe my family members blindly following it with lack of imagination and consideration. It, in its all simplicity, is backwards and utter nonsense of an occasion, let alone its

Travel Learnings

185 days of travelling in 2016 took me to various places and brought learnings that were well embraced. People, places, journeys, destinations, and conversations alike, all had an underlying message waiting to be conceived. At times they are to be found, but mostly they just effortlessly crawl in to your mind and sit in your marrow as a discipline forever. Excerpts of some of the long-lasting learnings are here, only for others to learn from

Irony Of Our Identity

We are born, and then we die, and whatever we make of ourselves between these two points is what our identity should ideally be. Minus our deeds, other identity we have is our name, rather it’s the bigger one between the two. Simply put, not everyone would know of our deeds but would definitely know our name to create a recall. And isn’t it how we introduce ourselves to someone? It’s such an important entity.


Lucky Star

I was looking at the stars Trying to find a constellation Connecting them big dots Searching for my lost generations Suddenly I found the Big Bear Felt you sitting so near It was you, I could see you so clear My affair was captured in that rolling tear Overwhelmed with joy my heart just burst Ran everywhere yelling ‘Look look, it’s her’ ‘Isn’t she beautiful, I’m in awe, she’s my girl’ Shining bright like the
