The Last Sip of Sehri Flashback to the 90s – It was a custom in our particular household that I happen to recall as I type this. Each Ramzan every morning, during ‘Sehri’ times, there was a custom we followed. Sehri or Suhoor is the time before dawn when you stock up on whatever you […]
How to Judge People?
Ever since the inception of the world wide web and easily accessible communication, the world caught up on the wave of sharing information. The age of information sharing brought along with it several good things, exchange of ideas happened – some things were exported while some were imported – not all was good. Of these not […]
Summing Up April 2017
Let’s get straight to the point. They say what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger. I disagree. What doesn’t kill you makes you realize you’re lucky so might as well not screw the second chance you have at life or whatever it is that you’re doing in Life – up. What 2016 was to […]
The Bird’s Funeral
Tuesday, February 28 I was commuting to work today on my old and dejected scooter. It has borne more disappointments than I have in my entire life.

It’s quiet, It’s late, it’s night; Not a soul, none in sight! Up and awake, Retrieving lost hopes tonight; Hoping to gather fresh Insight! Ridiculous, ain’t I?
