He is leaving. And I don’t want him to stay too. But.

Yesterday I received an extremely ecstatic call from Moses. For all you people who do not know what this creature called Moses means to me – he is the yin to my yang, the sanity to my insanity and the incoherence to my stability. He is my buoy, my parachute, my constant. He is whom […]

The Beginning of the End

‘Tell me, Harsh! Where the HELL is Anjana?’ yelled Rudra. It was unlike him to lose his temper like this, but there was nothing normal about this time or situation. Hell, it was as abnormal, unexpected and badly timed as it could get! Harsh continued to sob uncontrollably and muttered something incoherent. ‘Harsh, get a grip!’ bellowed Kaavya. Hearing his […]

10 ways to know if he loves you

10 ways to know if HE loves YOU!

A decade or so ago, when a guy would ask a girl out, it meant marriage – directly. If back then Facebook had existed with the ‘it’s complicated’ status option, probably no one would have ended up using it!

Scared to lose you, petrified to not!

SCARED to lose you, PETRIFIED to not!

I am not so young and carefree anymore… in my late twenties… For the younger version of me, love was a constant phenomenon. Only there was nothing constant about it. Like every teenager, I fell in love. A couple of times! And I had my heart scraped. Again, a couple of times. Back then, it […]

And they made me believe in TRUE LOVE, once again

I was sitting in office, bored at the monotony of work, staring at the tortuous wall clock and silently willing the hour-hand to move a little faster, when I received the invite!

Tenant, Feminist, Coward, Courageous - who was I?

  I was 23 and I had just taken the possession of my first rented apartment. Though small, it was the apple of my eye… my pride… my first home in Mumbai. For all those people who have never shared their home with a stranger, my apologies! For you won’t ever understand the magnanimity of […]
