  • The ever-still duckling
    My first uptake: The bath just did not seem the same anymore especially with the new bath bombs and scented bubbles that come with adulthood. Ever since little Belinda had gone, I was in melancholy. The soap suds felt like rocks on my smooth coat of rubber. My second uptake: I came into this bath, […]
  • It’s never too late!
    July has come bearing my exams! Eek!! I’m literally two days away from the first one. Examinations are probably the reason why I haven’t been active on WordPress for a longer time or tried new animations. Animations take up a lot of time and I seriously don’t have that kind of time. But I wanted […]

  • The Forbidden Door
    “Don’t open that door” A voice whispered in her mind It’s the door that should’ve been forbidden For making her revisit it The door to the sorrows of her soul The key is her greed of sympathy Her greed of excuses to avoid working I shall learn to proceed with caution Of the dangers lurking […]

  • 6 Months, 6 Implications
    It’s been almost four months since the lockdown started and things are getting crazier than they were before. COVID 19 has been just the trailer of the horrid series to follow.

  • Lost among the lilacs
    The wind was singing and so was she as she gently stepped in the field. The glimmering rays of sun danced on the endless field of lilacs. Chirp of the birds and the floral fragrance captivated her. The lilacs consumed her wholly and unknowingly. Lost among the lilacs, she wondered. How the slightest touch in […]
  • Glide away…
    Past the lines of borders Etched upon earth by man Lie twenty fallen Indians Whose souls glide away Past the oceans In a country developed by man Lie innumerable innocent black citizens Whose souls glide away Past those boundaries Ingraved by man Lies the consciousness of humans A soul that could save the day The […]

  • Exploring animation
    Quarantine has bestowed upon me this opportunity of exploring my interests. So with a little bit of this and a little bit of that, I finally stumbled upon animation.

  • E-books Vs Paper Books
    Technology has always proven itself to be better than its ancestors. Electronic books or kindles are no stranger to this tradition. With the new and upcoming generation, more technology is better appreciated. But can the same be said about E-books? The only way to resolve this is by facing the facts. 1. Storage: Books come […]

  • Scrapbook like a pro! – tips and tricks
    Scrap books are dated way back but they truly reflect your best work. By scrapbooking you basically trap your memory in it’s pages to remind how you felt when the picture or birthday or trip was taken. Sounds like Tom Riddles horcrux doesn’t it?
