Look Up!

I was moving like a nobody. At that phase in my life I wanted to be called a Mr. Nobody. That was my state of mind. Just like they preserve cells in liquid nitrogen where they stop their growth and they could revive them later, I wanted something similar for myself. I was at the epitome of self pity. That is what the end of first love probably looks like. You want to taken up by the tsunami or just stop living for a few days. No, I didn’t commit suicide, I tried, yes, but I couldn’t. Reason, I was the only son of my parents and that had invested their lives in me. Killing me would be like killing them, taking three lives. I was their pride, honor and love. How could I crush the flower of unconditional love, where I just wished the girl I thought was the love of my life added to its fragrance?  I was certainly not that heartless.

That layer came off only with time; especially when you didn’t want to see truth as naked as that.
Kalpana was my best friend and I was hers. She felt I understood her. She was not as laid back as me. She had dreams and why wouldn’t she? She had all the means to achieve them, at leas…

Living Is All About #Togetherness

The pressure of work takes us away from friendships. Unlike childhood where the mammoth homework would anyways be defeated to finally run away from home with friends. In college it was better; one could just stay in the canteen for hours once the required attendance criteria were fulfilled. For that is where I spent most of time. Sipping endless cups of tea, just chatting with friends, kept pressure if any away. Corporate on the other end is a very different kind of life. Once out of college one dreams of having the financial freedom. The freedom that gives one the taste of everything one wishes for. The stage where you no longer have to think too much before buying a gadget you wanted or dining at a posh place. Where you go suited booted and if lucky to work at a cool place, in your favorite brand of casuals and flaunt your style. There is a dream of riding through the city in a stylish car. These naïve dreams color the canvas of your thoughts throughout college life. However life l…
