My Summer Love – A Summer Realization

On a late summer evening, while riding my bike and feeling the breeze under my hand,  I came to a realization…. I had arranged my memories like rocks on a piece of cloth and just lifted the cloth up in one swift motion. And yet, even when it felt like the rocks had left the cloth’s embrace, hit the ground and shattered into pieces, they stood exactly where I had put them. Perhaps, memories stay intact exactly at the place you had created them. Perhaps, grounded like a tree in that exact place, they await you to rediscover them all…

My Summer Love – The Rain

It doesn’t happen often. It doesn’t rain for two days continuously over here. In fact, most of the summer has been so dry that everyone has been very worried. Last week, we finally had it all. Two days of continuous thunder, lightning, strong winds and rain. The rain makes every thing a lil’ cool. But I love watching it. I love being that kid peeking through the window into the outer world, feeling rain’s intensity as it hits the ground, shoots back up again and eventually loses its power. The rain reminds me that anything is possible. That it’s possible…

My Summer Love – The Heat Wave (35 C)

It has been a long time. A very long time indeed. It’s been a long time since I had to sleep without a comforter.

Just a few days ago, my coworkers were laughing about the fact that I was wearing my hoodie in 32 degrees. It usually takes me a long time to start feeling hot. But these days, it has been so hot that you could be typing this article while sweating and drinking refrigerated…

My Summer Love – The Grab and Go to Park Summer Package

Life has been fairly cool with awesomeness of sunshine upon me (hehe). Even in good weather, it can be quite difficult to convince yourself to go out and enjoy the sunshine. That is why, I have created my Grab-and-Go-to-Park-Summer-Package. LOL! The idea is simple: just like it is easy to eat something that you have already chopped up and put in a box in the fridge, it is easy to just grab a bag of things that includes everything you need to relax and do your work and go to the park. I mean, when near the north pole do…

Dried lips

Most of the times, the moments are forgotten. The life is lived. The heart is terrified. Dried lips. Cold is here. Winds are chilly. Pathways are blocked. Dried lips. Plants are dying. Energies are wilting. The world is snowing. Dried lips. There’s some Hi’s. Some goodbyes. But laughter’s still floating. Dried lips. October’s come and gone.  Memories are still warm. Life’s on track. Dried lips.
