An Open Letter to Twitter Trolls

Twitter Trolls

It is very easy to try to force your opinion laced with cuss words down other people’s throats while hiding behind the tri-color or your favourite politician’s picture. You are insulting both the tricolor and the one you consider God. Being anonymous is easy. To me, it means that you want to say things which … [Read more…]

A Moment of Silence

A silent tear  Picture Credit – Google Images Direction-less, in a pursuit  To dry down Fossilizing feelings forever Through crossroads of time Met another of its kind Witnessing a similar fate Yet somewhat different On another face, another front They shared the same bench On a lonely road Both drowned in their own dismayTrying to … [Read more…]

A tale of two women

It wasn’t a pleasant journey. She had a lot of emotional baggage to carry, and that wasn’t making it any easier. Even though she wasn’t aware, she was leaving a part of her behind, bit by bit with every step. She was walking alone – not quite sure of her destination. It was a hilly … [Read more…]

Not A Happy Ending

When Yash Chopra declared he is not going to make movies anymore, a part of me died forever, with no real hopes of revival. Call me a hopeless romantic, but I’ve grown up watching his films with larger than life love stories and it was painful to know that all of it was coming to … [Read more…]
