Life is Short and Time is Swift

Returns to All blogs
Hottest topic at my home these days is – “Marriage”. Oh Yes, I’m supposed to get marry soon. Ok, I’m excited. It’s obvious! But someone who is even more excited than me is my Mom. Every now and then she would ask me to come home and meet a certain girl or she would send me pictures of most beautiful girls. Arranged marriages are fascinating. I really like the excitement factor. Nevertheless, my parents got to know about one girl. They liked almost everything about her. Our compatibility quotient was also very high. Of course kundli’s were perfectly matched too. Everything looked perfect and it was left to two of us to meet and say a final yes. Subsequent Saturday morning I was ...

Idea-  Dreams! That’s what we live for. We dream and want them to turn into reality. A great dream begins with a dreamer. Suraj, a third year engineering student was one such dreamer. Always on top of his game, he wanted to revolutionize the Robotics Industry. He got his biggest breakthrough when he was shortlisted for Robotics Olympiad at IIT Roorkee.  Kiran, his partner was as skilled and efficient as him. She not only used to top the examination charts but was also the unprecedented queen of every boy’s heart. Like every other boy she had ruled the Suraj’s heart for years. Suraj had always loved her and she knew it always. But Kiran was not ready to move into a relationship. She h...

“I’m loving it!” she said as a wild wave lifts us two feet’s in the air. “And I’m loving you!” I screamed.For the last thirty minutes we were playing with the waves coming from Arabian Sea. Life had never been so beautiful. It was our first vacations together far away from the chaotic world. I always wanted to go to a place where I don’t know anyone but her. A place where I won’t have to care about anyone. A place that breathes romance. My fascination for beaches took us to Malpe beach near Udupi. By the time we came out of the water Sun had changed its colour to orange and was slowly settling down at the horizon of Arabian Sea. We sat on the sand near the sea shore. It was...

“What is with keeping the stubble?” she asked. “I didn’t have the time to shave.” I replied. clean“Come on! It is about couple of minutes only.” She declared.“It actually takes more than couple of minutes to do it properly.” I knew better than her.Image courtesy- Google images“You are no Brad Pitt. So stop experimenting and clean your stubble next time onwards. It makes you look dirty.” She said.Dirty? Hell no! I took a bath before coming to meet you, I’m wearing the perfume you gifted me and I always use hair gel when we are on a date.  All you noticed is my unshaven face? And by the way it’s the brand new t-shirt that I’m donning, I thought. Though I agree if ...

It was breezy Saturday night. Winters had started and nights were colder now. Dark clouds hovered just below the sky. The earth lightens up momentarily as lightening struck the sky. After the lightening it was the time for rain to wet the surface of earth. The dogs start yapping as another lightening struck the sky. When the rain stopped and watch clocked at 11:50, a motorbike stopped near the junction. A man in his thirties got down and parked the bike at corner of the road. He removed his helmet and wiped his face with a bandanna. He slipped his hand in the pocket of his pants and pulled out a packet of cigarette but to his dismay it was empty! He pulled his bag from his back and checked i...

Idea-Being in a relationship was never a new thing for him. For her relationship meant a bond for lifetime. Essence of love was unknown to him. For her love was a quintessential thing. Meet Rahul and Ira, best friends of sort who were so different yet so similar. Both were narcissist minus egoistic. For them marriage was the biggest life event. And of course they believed in arranged marriages. Not to fall in love before marriage was their thumb rule.They say rules are mean to be broken and a twist of fates made them break their rule. They were in love, not by choice but by kismet. Rahul fell in love with Ira. Did Ira fall in love too? Yes, she did but it was not Rahul and it tore apart the ...

                                 SECOND PART                FIRST PARTThe biggest problem with this mask-man theory is that it stops you from trusting the people around you. It almost forces you to believe that people are not being real to you. They have been secretive, hiding their other side, the real them from you.“I don’t want to reveal my weakness to all the people, people whom I don’t trust. They might use it against me.” She said.“Neither do I!” I said.“If I’m not sharing something with someone, it doesn’t mean I’m masked. It means I’m just being cautious.”The thing which I had always liked about her was her practicality. I may not be ...

Previous PartIt all started the time I woke up that morning. I quickly prepared tea, took news paper and headed towards terrace. I usually don’t read newspaper but I like to hold it in my hands. Winters were just starting and it had a positive impact on the sunrays, they were calm! I leaned against the wall and looked on the roadside. I saw kids with their mothers waiting eagerly for their school buses to arrive.They were jumping and screaming and the ladies were all smile, a pleasant sight. It reminded me of the days when I was a kid. It was a good start to a day but I forgot that the day had just started and had no idea that I was going to drained by the end of the day. However, few minu...

PREVIOUS PARTVarun stood near the sea shore after Pavan left. Dark clouds had started to gather under the sky and slowly the light was fading away. But they didn’t bother Varun, as they reminded him of the evenings he spent with Ananya. The memories were so beautiful that it was impossible for him to forget Ananya but everything. As he walked down the shore, he took a stroll down memory lane.“Give me two.”  Varun said to coconut water vendor. image courtesy- google images The vendor quickly chops the coconuts in two halves and hand them over to Varun. He picked them, paid money and leisurely walked on the soft sand. It was dark by now and tides coming from Arabian Sea were striking ...

“Ok, so tell me again why the hell we’re on the sea shore at two in the afternoon!” Pavan reiterated.Pavan was helping his priest father in decorating the temple when he got an SMS from Varun. He wanted to meet Pavan immediately. Locales of Udupi, a town situated near the coastline of Arabian Sea in the south-west state of Karnataka, Varun and Pavan were childhood friends. They were working in a multinational software firm in Bangalore and were visiting their native to celebrate Makara Sankranthi. However, reason to come home was not exactly the same for Varun."I need your advice." Varun replied after much thinking."Go on."Varun sighed and looked the water drenching his feet's. Meanwh...

Down in dumps I took my seat. The day was long, so exhausting. I could think of nothing but resting my overcooked body. I didn’t want to meet any one. I didn’t want to talk. I didn’t want to smile. All I wanted was to close my eyes and question him, the GOD, why? Why he created the world? A world that has no place for truth! What prompt him to create a place where human acts pusillanimously? Why is there a place for lie? Why can’t people be just real? Where has the authenticity gone? I was deeply immersed in my thoughts when she snapped her fingers. I turned my face slightly to look at her.“What is that you hate about people?”  Hate about people? I didn’t have to think much. ...

And here I’m back again after a break of two months, an unwanted break. Last time, I was almost forced to take the break. Job switch and relocating to a new city were really exhausting. When I wrote after the break I was thrilled to be back on blogosphere and decided that I would never take such a long break again. But then when do the things go as per the plan? They don’t go as per plan at least in my case. And again I went on a sabbatical for another two months. Gosh! I missed writing a lot.Nevertheless, the reason was simple. I ran out of ideas. I didn’t know where to start? As they say, it’s not certain that when one would come out of the writer’s block. I too was waiting to co...

Astonished "Nisha"Her heels are making terrifying sounds as she moves swiftly. On her way she strikes into something unknown. It is dark! She couldn’t see anything. She stops when she hears a sound unknown. Frighten and horrify, she slowly turns her body. Next moment; it is brightness all over again as everyone says “Happy birthday Nisha.”P.S.

“I can’t marry someone whom I have met only once or may be twice.” “Love marriage obviously but I’m afraid if my parents would second my thoughts.”“Love marriage is the way to go!”“Arranged marriage sucks!”I’m sure most of us would have heard these lines many a times. Love marriage vs Arranged marriage, it is easily one of the most talked about topic. Almost every one of us would have found ourselves as a part of this never ending discussion at least once. It’s a common topic of discussion among the most happening breed of people in our country- “ BACHELOR’S.” So, what conclusion you drew once the discussion is over? Love marriage?

Jason looked into his watch and got up from the bed. He went near the window and opened the curtains. He looked outside through the window. It was dark. He opened it and a cool breeze caressed his face. He stood there for few minutes and was still looking outside when a faint smile appeared on his face. He closed the window and came back to his bed. He looked at the watch again as he took it into his hands. He sighed as his head fell. He got up and took a quick shower. It was nine in the morning when the first ray of Sun made its way to the earth after hustling with the gloomy family of clouds all through the morning. Clouds slowly begun to disappear and a bright rainbow emerged on top of th...

Excited!! Really excited!! Finally I’m writing, writing after a long time, after two months precisely. It was really tough to not write anything for such a long period. Oh dear, I missed it badly!! Ever since I started blogging (though it’s been barely five monthsJ), it has become one of the most important facets of my day to day activities. And to take a break from writing only after couple of months is a sin. Come on! I deserve to be penalized.Moreover it affected my Indirank (It is down by 5 points!! L).And hence arise the big question-   What was I up to all these days? Well, many things happened. First of all I fell in love again. Yes, again! It happens way too frequently. It was ...

‘I have never seen Tsunami, I want to see it live!’ A woman said when police was trying to evacuate the famous Marina beach at Chennai after the Tsunami alert declared by Indian government yesterday afternoon. ‘At the office! Experienced the earthquake for the first time J.’ Declared an old classmate on his Facebook wall. ‘Are we really nearing the end of the world?’ Questioned another friend on his wall.As soon as I opened my eyes after a long sleep today afternoon I felt my eyes hazy and head spinning. I informed my roommate about the same. He advised me to sleep for few more hours before leaving for office. He left for office after advising me. I was still on bed when I receiv...

I was strolling down the shore. Moon was gleaming on the water. It was a beautiful night with full moon. I was in awe of the moon that alone had outshined the uncountable scattered stars. Waves were making the pleasant sound as they were touching the shoreline one after another. A tender breeze from ocean was caressing my body. Ambience was dominated by the glittering sand, soothing breeze and moonlight. I sat on one of the rocking chairs fixed on the sand facing the ocean. I lifted my face to look at the moon. ‘God must be in a romantic mood when he created the moon.’, I thought. It was beautiful. I looked at the ocean as a small wave splattered few drops of water on my legs. Beautiful...

‘What you keep thinking.’ she asked leaning over me. I looked at her and caught her eyes shimmering. Her big and bright eyes never fail to make me feel high.I sighed and looked outside the windshield. After few seconds I turned back towards her and took a deep breath. It is almost difficult to take eyes off her perfectly shape face. ‘An attempt to look into the future.’ I said caressing my fingers against her face.‘What did you see?’ She lifts her face to look at me and stroked my hairs with her fingers.‘You will see it at the right stroke of time but everything looks crystal clear when you are with me’ I said and intertwined my fingers with her. A faint smile appeared on her...

People argue when I tell them that I’m a night person.‘Working in night shifts doesn’t make you a night person.’ They would say. I agree. In a country like India thousands of people work in night shifts and for many such people their job is unpleasant. It Sucks! But I don’t become a night person when I started to work in night. I always was! I don’t like getting up early. I never woke up early in morning to prepare for exams. I always used to miss early morning classes in college. Moreover my productivity decreases exponentially in daytime and increases manifolds at night. ‘I love working in night’ I said and sat on the sofa.‘I don’t have an issue either’ Febin said.It ...

As the day was passing, it was becoming more difficult for Sun to maintain the intensity. It is not easy to sustain against dark forces and Sun was no exception that day. Dark and intimidating clouds hovered around it. After indulging in a battle for ages, Sun, the most powerful force of Universe was over powered by the most threatening force. Blue sky was replaced by dark clouds. They were immovable.‘I’m sure you don’t want to dislocate your intestines’ Tanya said raising her left eyebrow, her favourite gesture. She does it all the time.‘Anything for you! It’s your day.’ I grinned and stretched my arms in opposite directions.Ever since I announced about the surprise, she was e...

It was early morning. The Sun yet to get warm had brought an end to relentless darkness of night. First rays of Sun announced the arrival of a new day. It had just made a grand entry at the horizon. Fine and cold sand beneath my legs glittered as glistening sunrays made the first contact with it. As I walked down the shore, a half crushed shell struck my foot. I bent down and picked the shell. Like the sand it was also cold. I looked around and there were many of those. Some of them were crushed by the Seagulls. They had already started their quest for food. I moved close to the edge of shore and a tiny wave softly crashed on my foot. They say water in Arabian Sea is clean and clear when com...

I looked at the sky. It was hazy. Moon was playing hide and seek game with the scattered clouds, they should have no business today as it was a full moon. I was eagerly waiting for those wispy clouds to disappear and beam of moon to cover the entire ocean.  The sand underneath my feet glitters whenever Moon moved away from the clouds. Sand was soft and fine. It was a beautiful night. Could have been more beautiful had Clouds stopped playing the chasing game with the Moon.I was at a beach, Malpe beach. It is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. It was not the first time I was at a beach, I had been there before. Pondicherry (Puducherry now) holds the owner of introducing beach...
