Heart wrenching. Agonizing. Deplorable. Grievous. Saddening. There are a lot of words to describe the events that took place in Pulwama district of Kashmir yesterday. No matter who it is, the loss of a life is always mournful. Condemnations flowed from every part of the world and rightly so. No state on earth would like… Continue reading The Half Condolences
To whom this blog may concern. It was the year 2016, winter season probably. We had dinner with a delicious chicken (a rarity in hostels) and few Mountain Dew bottles.

Like all of our firsts, first love is special and important for every person. There is so much emphasis on one's first love. Movies… Continue reading Falling in Love the Second time
It is that day of year again. Exchanging roses and heart shaped symbols to express the feelings of love by a person to his/her better half. It is the Valentine Day.
