While watching Taare Zameen Par… Every Child is Special (Like Stars on Earth… Every Child is Special) recently, I felt like I could connect with the character of Ishaan Awasthi. The movie is about the struggles of a dyslexic child but what I connected with was a particular dialogue of Nikumbh. Continue reading I am fortunate… A to Z 2020
A year ago (minus three days) I had begun a new chapter of my life. I was unsure about the path I was going to walk. It wasn’t nervousness, it was a doubt whether I chose the right path or not. I knew I won’t be able to tell if I didn’t try it. All I could tell myself was this: Let’s adjust with one thing because this decision is giving you everything else. Continue reading I am enthusiastic… A to Z 2020

I am told that I was born with my skin color as white as milk. Looking at those albums, I can see the change in my skin colour over the years as I grew up. A lot of people keep on suggesting me to try so and so things so that I have a lighter skin tone. Initially, I used to ignore such things. I have been one of those kids who likes walking barefoot. Continue reading When I felt a little more beautiful… A to Z 2020

I still have that letter that you gave me. It’s been a long time since I read it. I don’t know what made you write it. I wrote you a letter a year later, on your birthday. I was missing you. But we lost touch. Just like that! Continue reading A letter to an old friend
I know you both would not have been expecting me to write a letter to you. Continue reading Dear G and R
You seem like an unachievable transitory thing to me. There was a time when I lived for you, then there came a time when I gave you up. A little more than a year ago, I saw you again. I started to believe in you again. But I didn’t know if I’d ever be able to meet you. Continue reading Dear Dream
It’s been a long time since I wrote to you. To be precise, it’s been 1 year, 11 months and 26 days. A lot has changed in this period. I have started to realise your worth and that I should not let you slip away. Continue reading Dear Time
Aaj socha humne
Thodi guftagoo tumse ki jaaye
Kaisi ho tum?
Socha puch liya jaaye
Bahut samay hua
Tumse nahi kar paaye
Today I thought
I’ll have a conversation with you
I thought I should ask you
How are you?
It’s been a long time
Since we didn’t talk Continue reading Dear Zindagi/ Dear Life
Dear Present Me
I don’t know why everybody is panicking but you am not. Is the world mad or are you? You have stepped out of the house just once since the evening of 13th. And now, we finally have a nationwide complete lockdown for 21 days. I don’t know if you should be happy about it or not. Continue reading A letter to my present self
