I must write.

For what I must write? I am not sure. For whom I should write? I am not sure. What should be my subject of writing?  I mull over. Not suffering from enough pain. I somehow managed to escape those wounds. Not a victim of time. I healed the losses with time that went by. Not…

Livin la vida loca!!!!

Living the crazy life!!!! When I got to watch the song for the first time in a music channel (Back in 1999), I was only 13. Instantly, the groovy rhythm and flashy music video got my attention. I became a Ricky Martin fan. I was not sure what the phrase meant. Somehow, I managed to…

Abortion: Choice or Murder?

As a child, I was told that it was a bad omen to kill a firefly and I might lose an eye in return, if I killed one. Terminating any form of life before its natural life span on this earth is killing. The termination can be done at any biological development phase. Nevertheless, we…

See, madness, as you know, is like gravity: all it takes is a little push.

Whenever I hear or read this phrase, I can only visualize the scene from Batman movie, he dark knight. The husky voice of Heath Ledger (Joker), his wide open grinning face piercing all frozen hearts and inflicting sudden emotional outburst. 🙂 Madness to the outer world is, deviating from the norms that our society, culture,…

Mio Amore!!!

You buy a tour package for your parents, for no apparent occasion. They keep on sulking for the unnecessary budget planning and complain about hazards of long time travelling without others. You somehow manage to take them to station. You board the train along with them and find the appropriate place for luggage. The train honks…

Run Forrest, run.

Can you see me running? Yes,  I am running. Most of us are constantly running. Either away from someone or something or chasing someone or something that we do not have. Do you remember Tom Hanks running as fast as he could, to get away from the fellow students who bullied him. Both hands swaying…

Find What you love and let it kill you. — Charles Bukowski.

I recently stumbled upon a page where I encountered some quotes of Charles Bukowski. I had no prior idea of who he was. I was just killing time so, I started skimming through the page. The very first quote I encountered is the quote mentioned in header. It was quite inspiring. Now a days, you…

Belonging.

“Papa, which country can I call my own?” It broke the long reigning silence in the room. After much thought, Asit broached the topic again to discuss with his father. They were lying together in a cosy bedroom of their small apartment. They lived in Kolkata suburb, far away from the bustling streets. It was…

Saraswati Puja or Bengali Valentine’s day?

For those people, who are not aware of Saraswati puja, I would like to mention that, Saraswati is the Hindu Goddess of education, arts and music. Saraswati Puja is worshipping the Goddess on the fifth day of magha (Bengali month). She is attired in saree and carries a veena in her hands. She is accompanied…

Racism in WhatsApp.

First of all, let me put forward my intention behind this post. I do not want to accuse WhatsApp makers for racism. Neither I have any intention to start a debate. I just came across a feature and which actually stuck in my mind for long. This only motivated me to put forward this post. Any…

Hiareth

Yearning for an unrequited love, hiraeth. A relationship that you never had on the very first place on this realistic world. Your lips tremble while naming that person, however, your mind wanders off to a different world of what could have been. It is a Sisyphean task of bringing back your attention to reality. You…
