    On Aloneness, Loneliness, Silence

    Up in the high Himalayas, there is a sacred lake, in the shape of a crescent moon, emerald blue surrounded by snowcapped peaks. In the early hours of the day, when the sun has not yet broken into the world, there is a serene calmness here. The still waters that create mirror reflections of the…

  • Race


    In this race towards death, where I am still trying to figure out my purpose and why my soul chose you. I keep coming across situations that have the power to take my breath away in one instance and crush my soul in the other. It is a love-hate relationship I have with this life.

  • A Lighter Heart

    A Lighter Heart

    I sit at the café with a mug of hot chocolate going cold and a half-opened Murakami’s Kafka On The Shore.  The impression outside is equally damp as the mood inside – the heavily overcast grey sky is pouring incessantly and streaks of lightning flashes across the vast expanse. The hot chocolate gets colder as…
