Grey.

By | April 6, 2017

Should be thinking about my health. Should be concentrating on work and be thankful. Should be spending more time with my family. Should try ‘positivity’ a bit more often. Should get in touch with friends who have walked away. Should be happy. Some of the many things that have ‘should be’s’ attached to them which… Read More »

The rat race!

By | April 23, 2014

Aren’t we all in one? From the time one is born to the day he dies; he is part of a never ending rat race. We have people who constantly win their races and are used to the rush it gives them. You then have those who are used to losing constantly and have given… Read More »

Yoo hoo!! Surprise surprise!

By | February 27, 2012

Hello! I am sorry to intrude into your space, Nu. But it was painstaking for me to see this space being ignored and left to slowly stutter, choke and die. So I, Shruti Menon – a finding of this blog here, decided to drop by and invade in and clean up all the cob-webs and… Read More »

Thank you Shruti, Abhi, Smikh, Sneha, Mom and all of you’ll who kept reminding me about writing and how I must not give up on one of the only activities I am good at; or so you’ll said. I’m not quite… Read More »

Pristine

By | April 21, 2009

The other day I decided to take a walk. A walk of shame down the rickety rather boulder studded gully next to Radha aunty’s house. I’ve always taken pride in the fact that I’ve managed to earn both money and respect amongst the people who crowd my life. Now I understand that it is because of the enormous luck… Read More »

Got time?

By | March 4, 2009

I’m so full. I just had one of those heavy dinners after a really heavy evening snack which was still being ruled over by a malignant lunch full of rice and eggs. Darn! Wasn’t I supposed to be dieting? Ohh yeah, how did it slip off my mind? I’m me. I give up, I procrastinate,… Read More »

No strings attached.

By | January 28, 2009

I learnt all of a sudden and as an unwanted revelation that I live amongst people who have no strings attached. They aren’t attached to anyone who are not their own.
