3:24

The time in my watch is 3:20 (actually 3:21) and I haven't had my lunch yet. On a usual day I would not delay it but today was different. As it happens I am working on a project that demands urgent attention. My job is to trim content, take care of details and make sure… Continue reading 3:24

I have had my fill. This thought ran through his mind constantly. Tapping some random keys on the laptop, he looked around and saw everyone reeked of mediocrity and sadness and lost hope. Or maybe he reeked of all those things. You'd never know. The problem as you see is, I do not know my… Continue reading 34 percent

3 Windows

The view from the window on my right today is quite clear maybe because it rained the other day or do I give all the credit to the strong winds? Day 9-10 of Ramzan and sun is shining brightly over the city we now call Gurugram. Inside the office the scene is different. The internet… Continue reading 3 Windows

Millenium City

It is famous for hosting offices of some of the largest companies like Zomato, KIA, Amex and so on. Now the beauty about it at night… Continue reading Millenium City

Promise

I made a promise to myself sitting at the edge of this rocky path which led to the ocean and I failed. My life for the past 3 years has been mostly about work. I have dedicated myself to it because it gives me a reason to live, I learn and working makes me feel… Continue reading Promise

Little decisions that shape up your life and you realize that while trying to make things perfect you are only getting far from it. Anyway, that's not what I intend to write today. See this is not me telling… Continue reading Lean back

Bhaag Daud (Race)

The doors open and you exit only to find others walking in the same direction. Some are running but most of them are rushing and wading their way through others. Suddenly you see that there is an insane rush on the exit gate and you automatically speed up as if it will have a major… Continue reading Bhaag Daud (Race)

Sliced Apples

Warning: This is not a fiction.  I was standing and reading my book in the metro while a fellow traveler who happened to have a seat was eating his apples. Now the apples were sliced and were  nicely placed in the little round container. He was munching on them and occasionally offered them to his… Continue reading Sliced Apples

Returning home

What a day to travel in metro. I've a book in my hand which I'm trying to read and I've got three groups of people around me. One on the left and two on the right and all three groups are talking real loud and occasionally one of the members of each group laughs loudly. … Continue reading Returning home
