‘I learned a new skill’

This weekend I learned a new skill. It is a common word, you must have heard it, used it many times. I wonder if you have this skill as I managed to imbibe it in the most unique way possible over the course of this weekend. I had two things I was looking forward to... Continue Reading →


Tea talk with Maa

Before leaving, “I only know one person in the entire group. I am extremely nervous about this trip.” “Don’t be Maa, leave all your worries behind and you’ll do great!” After coming, “How was it Maa?” “More than what I could ask for!” I was overwhelmed to hear Mom’s stories of the amazing week she...

‘easy said than done’

Scribbling pointers in my diary, I was thinking about what to write this week. I had filled pages of unconscious thoughts, wrote down few experiences of the week, but nothing helped. Writer’s block isn’t a myth after all. I had a few things to write, but not so comfortable sharing them online, there were a... Continue Reading →

‘have a good time’

I didn’t wish to write about this weekend’s trip. ‘I don’t think I have enough stories and experiences to put them to words this time’ I said to a friend. When I uttered these words to him is when I realized my mistake. I said so because the experience I had was not like my... Continue Reading →
