Honey, I shrunk my brain again!!

Now that it was already shrunken, I was unable to cope up with any further ramifications and decided to do something about it. As always, I kept on procrastinating, till a post lunch  walk with AS, sorted it all out. Here’s a brief account of my self realisations, self assassinations  and self assessments. Any references…

Food For Thoughts!!

Patience pays… why – here it goes..today morning my cabbie was very firm when he mentioned he cannot deviate from the route as the fare is calculated based on same. Pissed off, I asked him to drive soon. All throughout my roller coaster ride, was wondering if I could somehow tell Uber as to which…

Miniature Inventions!!

The world we live in today, witnesses numerous innovations every day, in varied fields be it IoT, automobiles, medicine or media. They always leave you in awe. However, these might not be very useful in our day-to-day grind. How often will I ask Echo to book a cab for me or say drive to work…

Inexplicable!!

Last night, the last piece I read was about the Indian historical saga of Rani Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji.

A lot can happen over Coffee

I was tired. Not physically, but it’s the mental exhaustion I am referring to. Data structures professor had stacked all my grey cells and the only savior was D Paul’s cold coffee which stood majestically on the small table in front of me, waiting to be gulped down in one shot. On a regular day,…

To Life!!

It’s been almost a week and I am still unable to coerce my thoughts into creating an exact replica of my past 12 years – those of shared laughter, of shared responsibilities, of shared meals  and of shared rides – all of which, are now an integral part of MY life. I recently got a…

500D

“I had been waiting for a 500D since past 45 minutes”. The girl told me. I was so wrong when I thought, only my waits are endless. It was 6:05 P.M on a soothing Bangalore evening. With no signs of rain, I had just endured a walk of 600mt with a heavy backpack, only to…

AB & ME

We had been together for more than a decade now. Initial years just felt like a cool breeze. Heated issues got resolved within 24 hrs. I was sure I had made the right choice. I was wrong. It all started when I relocated. The surroundings were not conducive for uninterrupted conversations. There were frequent disconnects. Several…
