It usually goes Karma is a B****. But given how Karma can wave her magic wand and bite you back any moment she wants I would like to call her a Witch. Because, a witch she is. Vile and cunning, but justified; making you think your evil plans are on the winning side, when in … Continue reading Karma is a witch
'We can leave early today.' Those words meant as much joy as winning an Oscar's is to an actor. Or actress. This is a non sexist blog. My colleagues and I used to often crib about not getting enough time to hang out at bars or have dinner parties like they portray in those really cool sitcoms.

Off late my favorite pastime during the lockdown has been socializing with birds at the park.

I set the alarm for 7:00 am. And then two more, one at 7:15 and one at 7:30. Waking up at 7:30 shouldn't be a problem. That's what I thought. That's what I always think before going to bed. But despite having 3-4 'pre alarm' alarms screaming like police sirens right next to my ears, … Continue reading Workout plans that never (ever) work out
It's not easy being in a relationship. I realized this truth when I started learning a new language. Okay, I agree it is not the same thing. But I can list out a bunch of similarities that will make you think otherwise. Oh, and this is just a fanciful and dramatized comparison. I'm aware of the fact that the scale of impact in both the cases is not comparable, obviously.
I looked at my watch, frantically, for the tenth time in the last two minutes. It was 6:06 AM. The train to Mysore was at 6:30 AM. I was still in the cab and needed at least 10 more minutes to reach the railway station. I hate missing the train. Not that missing anything else … Continue reading The One that got away.
