My cup of tea

Remember when you glared at me for being blissfully unaware about making chai/tea. In that fateful moment you unabashedly explained the need of knowing how to make that perfect cup of tea- “How does one survive the wrath of the so-called proceedings of the day without surrendering oneself to the warmth of a well-made cup […]

Happy feet💙

They said:Black and shiny…polished and fitting.. I said:Oh wait…Are you talking about the shoes I put on today or your notion of me?

The sweetest reminder that sometimes,  dreams are better than the inexplicable reality that we face everyday. The lyrics to my favourite song […]

BETRAYED

Unanswered guilt… Unspoken regret… Unnoticed pain… Sadly, the perpetrators of such a heinous crime are unapologetic while the victims carry their unknown burden for a lifetime. Bereft souls torn apart from sexual abuse and bogged down by neglect lose their innocence along the way. Children are usually targeted by unmasked monsters within their circle of […]

Brain vs Brawn

“I can’t do this anymore” His eyes filled up with untold despair and he looked at her blankly. She stood up , no longer faltering in his presence and walked out. In that moment, he silently looked at the abandoned wheelchair in the corner of the room and let out a forlorn sigh over her […]
