Bros before woes

Person 1: [hope] Yes, university has called him for yet another retake of his final year’s exam paper. This might be his only last chance at graduating, or else he’d have to resort to a life of toil, stress, and woes – not that he has had enough worries already. All other colleagues have long graduated. …

The End of an Era | Logan: A Review

Before I begin to pour out my thoughts in the form of an emotional roller coaster, let me start off by telling you that I had the great opportunity of watching Logan on the night of 28th of February at my local cinema theater’s pre-release night screening with an odd showtime of 10.23pm. It was only…

Border Tales

There wasn’t much in Luis’ routine life that one would ever want for themselves – being part-waiter and part-janitor at a 24/7 open roadside diner wasn’t something of great importance and value. As hateful as his job would seem to be, Luis was obligated to work there, with no choice left. Being born into a…

New Chapter

Sometimes bad things happen to us in different ways and in many forms. They may come to you as the low marks you just received in your final college exams or as the heart-break you just went through when you found out that your “one true love” didn’t love you anymore, or as your business that keeps continually…

Drift 

Divert your thoughts, avert your mind. Sometimes, to reach where you desire, all you need is a little push. Let the drift take you there.

Safe haven

For once in your life, just take a break. Take a break from the unnerving deadlines, the decimating stress, the pain, the heartbreak, the suffering and just this once, imagine. Imagine yourself afloat in the vastness of the sea or atop the highest of mountains, or amidst the quietest of forests. Therein, you are your…

“Evenings for Jack (name changed) and Fluffy, have always meant something special. When all the other kids are busy in their video game consoles, Jack prefers to go out in the park with his “BFF”, his big furry friend, and play catch.” A special bond between true friends for life, indeed. For more captivating photos and other…

Stranger Things: A Review

Being a hardcore film fanatic, cinephile, and a huge sucker for the horror/drama genre, believe me when I tell you that many films and tv series have treaded on this path, but have lost themselves in the genre to such an extent that they’ve never found their way out of it. However, Netflix’s latest original series, Stranger…

Hiatus, and many more..!

Hiyah, readers! A rather extended hiatus finally comes to an end after almost a year of settling into freshman year college life abroad, juggling between academics, social activities and rejuvenating on much-needed breaks. Having not been active for over a year now, the idea of having lost touch and become obscure to most readers and…

I’ve Seen You, Beauty

Things were never the same the day I met you. You were this delicate butterfly of joy drifting through the wind and I, your admirer, hoping to grasp you when you came closer. If you came closer. You were the epitome of beauty, elegance and romance; your angelic presence was like the sound of sweet music…

Project Run-Away!

It’s funny how cafés have turned out to be more than just places serving coffee and brownies. It has evolved into a hub where secretive ideas, egoistic gossips, ‘world-revolutionizing’ decisions, nefarious plots, heart-aching breakups and innumerable other things take place on a daily basis. I was recently at a café in Khan Market (who’d want…
