Dear Dad.

Butter chicken and naan, That’s what my dad would get me, Every time I excelled at school. Then he would get me books, Any and all, I just had to linger on that shelf. If I looked at a saree too long, He would say “pack it”. I remember I had to choose a third…

Can someone really change?

When I look back, say 10 years, I don’t think I was a nice person. I was zero on empathy, didn’t believe in feeling too much or anything at all. I was in a relationship of convenience, or maybe in multiple relationships of convenience. A lot of what I let myself feel was “transactional”. I…

The future of present.

What I really want to say is that this isn’t how I expected the future of my present to be. Then in the present, I was dreamy, hopeful, and in love with the idea of being in a relationship. All I saw was that I wouldn’t have to miss this person any more. I would…

If you must do something, then inspire people to truly live.

Language barely does the job of expressing how we feel; words cannot always convey the depth of an emotion a person can feel at a moment for another person, be it for a friend, a lover or a child. And funnily, as much as we would like to pretend otherwise, the intensity of the emotion…

Good Beginnings are overrated 

  In my experience the phrase, “First impression is the last impression,” could not be more inaccurate because one of my closest friendships had a shaky beginning. We did not like each at all in the beginning, but now seven years later, here we are, by each other’s sides.  We feel immensely grateful that we…

Thank God for complexity; else we wouldn’t have miracles!

“I don’t like the clean-shaven boy with the necktie and the good job. I like desperate men, men with broken teeth and broken minds and broken ways. They interest me. They are full of surprises and explosions.”  — Charles Bukowski There is something intrinsically interesting about complexity. I love complexity for its complexity. I like…

Love in Times of Dating Apps

In this maze of dating apps apps, we are all looking for something worth fighting for. And what’s worth fighting for doesn’t happen overnight. Like most us, my foray on dating apps was to find something that felt good. It had to feel good in the moment, at least. Whether or not it made me…

Making love, while you are at it

I love how hard you are,  There’s something oddly overwhelming when a man as strong as you touches me with butter fingers. Your tight tight glutes when you thrust into me, When you unashamedly moan into my hair when you find your pleasure.   When you don’t shy away from looking me in the eyes,…

This Valentine’s – Choose Yourself

It takes a huge amount of self love to be worthy of the love that you think you deserve. One act of self love can turn the wheels of fortune in your favour. But like with most things that are worth it, this isn’t easy. Self love isn’t easy. To begin with it needs a…

Not my first love..

You were not my first kiss, But all the others faded with my first with you.   You were not my first date, But how you opened the door for me, Made all others feel less first like.   You were not the first person to hold my hand in a movie hall, But you…
