Friendships- and why this is not just about Friendship Day

We all have certain biases ingrained deep within- whether we choose to accept it or not is a different matter. I have them too and here are a few things I always thought when it came to friends: I can only bond with people who are like me- have similar tastes in books, similar hobbies,… Continue reading Friendships- and why this is not just about Friendship Day

Choices #FictionMonday

Pure platonic relationships between opposite sexes- do they exist? Can one be just friends with someone from the other gender, with absolutely no romantic feelings. Most of my girlfriends say nah! Not possible. Love and sex come in between, or at least one of the 2 chuckles Maria. I scoff in disbelief. “Look at Josh… Continue reading Choices #FictionMonday

A bumpy ride it is #FictionMondays

Her eyes were fixated on the 2 pages, neatly written lines on a crisp white sheet, they looked perfect. And then came the blobs of ink, smeared. This was sure to make creases appear on most people’ s foreheads. There goes the perfect page- sigh. But she looked at it intently and started thinking of… Continue reading A bumpy ride it is #FictionMondays

The smile on her face was different this time. It came straight from her heart , a smile of someone in love.

But hey, I had to eat my own words the day Ashu… Continue reading All for Love #FictionMondays

Unconditional love- is what comes to mind when you look at this lovey dovey picture. A virtue animals possess but for us humans it doesn’t come that easily. Is it really possible to love another being with no expectations in return except for asking that they love you back as deeply as you do? Would… Continue reading Smash ’em #FictionMondays

Wake up Riya! #FictionMondays

The shrill sound of the alarm clock, every morning at 5.30. Oh how she hated it! 5 minutes more Baba , she pleaded every day. And that 5 would turn to 10, post which the blanket would be pulled off and she would find herself in the bathroom. “No missing a day of badminton” is… Continue reading Wake up Riya! #FictionMondays

Word of the year 2022: Gratitude

Its that time of the year again. I was toying between writing a round up post OR bringing up my WOTY for 2022.
