2. Golden Son – Click here to read the synopsis from Goodreads. 3. Morning Star – Click here to read the synopsis from Goodreads. Finally, I’ve finished reading the Red Rising Trilogy by Pierce Brown. I did enjoy reading it but it sort of left  me feeling exhausted. These books consisted of ample of space jargon which I…

The Return

Dear Fellow Bloggers & Netizens! Hope you’re all doing well. I’ve been away for a few months now – it was an unintended break but a bad case of  writer’s block had me down in the pits. However, I made sure I used these excruciating months to read more books and explore more TEDtalks. “Finding…

#2 Cathartic Musings

13/8/17 (20:45) There is an inexplicable amount of pain, whenever I’m hit with the realization of what I’ve lost. It wasn’t easy giving up on the valuable opportunity I was bestowed with, for my two years of hard work (which robbed me of my sanity). Well, I didn’t carelessly or mindlessly throw it away because…

A Canine at my Doorstep

You limped across the street to my doorstep With perked up ears and keen eyes Looking at me expectantly with a pained expression Yet, I did nothing except Watch you stand there. Today was the second time I saw you at the gate, looking through the gaps with keen eyes. Watching you stand there looking…

#July Reads (A Bibliophile’s Reflections)

All the Ugly and Wonderful Things by Bryn Greenwood “I wanted a fairy tale ending for Wavy, because if she could find happiness, there would be hope for me, too.”  Without a doubt, the story lives up to its title. I found this book to be extremely disturbing since it contains graphically detailed mature content….

#2 Nathi meets the Rubik’s Cube (Yet Again)

If you’ve missed Part 1 of my series, click here to catch up. Well, I don’t exactly remember our each encounter, maybe because those were just passing moments. However, I was reintroduced to the Rubik’s Cube through my cousin brother. I saw him fiddling with one and to my displeasure he managed to solve it….

Planet Mercury: Journey into Outer Space

Mankind has long gazed at the canvas of sky with the hope of unraveling the mysteries of life which goes far beyond one’s immediate reality. The quest beyond Earth (the place we call ‘home’) has always fascinated the human mind. Many a times, I’ve wondered what it would be like to be an astronaut, travelling…

The Choice is Yours

(Note : Thanks to my dear friend for sending me this inspiring video on whatsapp) ……regretted not the things they did but the things they didn’t do…… Initially, these words had me spellbound and I was vigorously shaking my head to acknowledge that these words were undoubtedly true and cannot be challenged at all costs….

#1 Nathi meets the Rubik’s Cube

The first time I laid my curious hands on the Rubik’s cube was a disaster. I might have been around 11 or 12 years old when my parents with full of hope, eagerly presented me with a Classic Rubik’s cube for my birthday. I was not really impressed but nevertheless the inquisitive part of me…

#1 Cathartic Musings

​5/7/17 (00:21) Dreams. Colours. Hope. Broken promises. Lost. Chaos. Every single person here on Earth has got a core need. If that particular need is not met, life then becomes meaningless. Besides, all pleasures of life amounts to nothing, if that most valued treasure remains out of ones reach. That being the case, nothing can…

The Power of Vulnerability

“And I know that vulnerability is the core of shame and fear and our struggle for worthiness, but it appears that it’s also the birthplace of joy, of creativity, of belonging, of love.” -Brene Brown  (a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work) I came across the above TEDTalk a…

Best is YET to Come

“Either you make your decision or eventually a decision will be made for you.” The first time I heard these words, I was already in a state of despondence and it made matters only worse. Initially, I was frustrated and angered by the truth these words held. It took me days of pondering (after all…
