Why is it important to take a break and why you should take one

Why is it important to take a break and why you should take one

2020 definitely isn’t the year we wanted it to be. On New Year’s Day, when we made plans for the year, I don’t think most of us would have considered spending almost half the year or even more locked up in our houses. Forget all those trips that I wanted to go on, I’ve barely stepped out of my house unless absolutely necessary. But yes, […]

Finding the simple joys of life during a pandemic

Finding the simple joys of life during a pandemic

I can’t believe that it has been 6 months of staying at home. Apart from the few times I went grocery shopping, I haven’t stepped out of my building. While I’m grateful for the things I have that are making my life easier during the pandemic, I’ve definitely not been pleased with the whole situation. Being stuck in a room all day with work that […]

How to find time to read every day?

How to find time to read every day?

If there’s one resolution that I’ve been able to stick to for a few year’s now, it is my reading resolution. I have managed to read a few pages everyday for a year now. Yes, I’ve had slumps where I have struggled to finish books or even struggled to read for more than a few minutes. But I kept at it and I’m glad that […]

On a rainy day

On a rainy day

The clouds in the sky, Dark and grey, Gather together, Heralding another rainy day. The trees once dry, Now all green, Begin to sway, Making it a pretty scene. I smell the petrichor, As the wind begins to blow. The troubles on my mind, I begin to let go! And pitter-patter, It begins to fall. First gently, And then it gives its all. I sit […]

My experience of using Audible

My experience of using Audible

Reading has been an integral part of my life. My day feels empty if I haven’t read at least a few pages. And as the years have gone by, my reading has evolved. Not just in the kinds of books I read, but also in the way I read. In the beginning it was only paperbacks, then read pdfs of classics that I would read […]

That was Summer

That was Summer

I have always been mesmerized by the change of seasons. The sunshine, the rain and almost non-existent winter in between. Each season brings with it its own memories. For me, summers brings about a sense of nostalgia like no other! The exams, the vacation, the mangoes, the games, the books, the rain – all of it brings about a yearning for that time that now […]

The Sunset Sky

The Sunset Sky

When days go by feeling all the same, With hope seeming ever so bleak, Take heart, my friend, don’t cry, Just look at the sunset sky! The day may be drawing to a close, Yet it goes away in all its grandeur. With hues of crimson and gold, Oh the stories the skies told! Like the ever changing sky, Life doesn’t always remain the same, […]

I still miss you

I still miss you

Memories come to my mind, Sometimes for a fleeting moment, But often they linger on, Especially the memories of you. For memories are all I have of you, And with time, they say they fade away too. But I’ll hold on, to every bit of them, Though I know they are so few. If only I could turn back time, To when you were still […]

Around the world in Books

Around the world in Books

Ever since I was a kid and I learned that there are different countries and different places on Earth, I wanted to visit them all. As a child, with no limits to my imagination, I would tell myself that someday I would see all of the world. As I grew up, I understood that reality was different. Trips to any place apart from the hometown […]

A dash of colour

A dash of colour

Things may not be all bright and shiny, but then it doesn’t hurt to look at the brighter side of life. The world today isn’t what it used to be a few weeks ago. A pall of gloom has descended and everything has gone haywire. All of this because of a single virus! Life isn’t what is used to be. Things we once considered normal […]
