Drown to Death


Lift me up when you’re free
from underneath this pile of memories.
That’s where I refused to sink
but there, my life drowns to death.




Like an autumn hit in my twenties
Spring in my soul sheds all at once.
But to be the saviour of my world,
I will linger and hold on a bit more.

Push me; I’ll dip and crash on the shore,
as I am hollow, floating on the edge solo.
Or let me wait and conquer with light,
people, dreams and hopes of tomorrow.

What if these mountains will move,
as I climb up the stairway of time.
What if my twenties be the beginning
for me to be what I want to be.

hope for tomorrow

Roots & Sprouts




This place owns my flesh and bones, 
and the shattered piece of my tragic soul.
For that, I stand by the rains tonight
to drench, to dissolve and to dream.
Once again I will hold the world in my hands,
along with my faulty stars in a jar,
to feel what ‘Euphoria’ is. Once for all.


“Why don’t you write anything nowadays?”

   Every time I faced that question I spit out some excuse about my final semester architecture studies. Of course, my days were busy.  I have never been this busy in my ‘entire life’!… Okay! I’m 22 but I can say that right!? Anyway, those days changed me a lot. I spent more time outside of “my room”. I would like to call it a “break”.

   I have heard people say we need to take a ‘break’ once in a while. Especially when life gets mad and stumbles across every sentence thinking what’s next. I had those days when I used to analyse everything too much. And I had days I was flying like a bird thinking about nothing. I had to travel to a lot of places. Places which I never expected I would visit in my life. I read a number of books. I met a lot of people who made me smile. But most of the time, I was on my own. And for me, that was the most required break.

   I had often felt guilty about my introverted self for not using every opportunity perfectly. But these days helped me to accept who I am. I stood up for choices and started dreaming what is necessary. I learned that life is an adventure when we do something we thought we cannot. In my past, I was pulling myself into the stereotype society created.
Really? “Stereotypes”? Do you want to believe what society says? Continue reading BREAK

2016 STORY

It may be good to ponder the memories before stamping on the pile of new resolutions. Even some memories dropped a few tears, they were the great lessons and the best gift of 2016.

After getting back together with my best friend once I lost, it was a good decision to focus more on myself and spend a huge amount of time listening to the world outside. Blending into the new workplace was not tough and I felt exultant on meeting new people who easily turned into close friends. Weekend plans always included the people I can’t live without and different foods I craved.

The wanderlust pinned me around the city as I climbed again on my two wheeler and that best friend who never wanted to leave became the constant occupier of the back seat. Life was always on a rollercoaster but within those ups and downs, I learned that family is always there. Continue reading 2016 STORY


From 25th Sept. to 5th Oct. I visited Bhutan with my friends. Since I got a lot of good memories I decided to share one of the best of them. The following is my experience of the trek into the tiger’s nest of Bhutan.

I think it is usual that you have an experience that is so good that you find it so hard to explain it in the best way possible without losing its beauty. I think this is such a hard time for me but still I think it is okay if I am beginning with a morning that I had to wake up so early and to travel about half an hour from our hotel in Paro fully covered myself because of the cold that was penetrating into my body that may freeze my blood. I was actually very excited about this trekking day before reaching Bhutan but, I didn’t feel any particular excitement or happiness the time our bus reached the starting point, probably because I was still sleepy. I am really not a morning person!aaaa.jpg

The starting point was muddy and filled with a large number of dogs and as we started climbing they started following us. A few felt not at all okay because of the dogs. Anyway they were just walking with us and causing no harm; I really loved them. As we climbed up I started feeling very happy. I was breathless after half an hour watching the world around me and because I was tired. The sky that rose above the pine forest and a pool of cloud below my feet. I felt I am in some other world. As I proceeded my breath became faster and it started to be warm.aaa.jpg

The fog slowly faded away and escaped to the tips of pine leaves. After one and half hours we learned that we have a lot more to climb because we saw no trace of the peak of the hill. The small talks with friends actually reduced the effort of the journey. At some point we decided to take rest. Whatever I see around was beautiful. And at this point, I learned that the dogs are not following us but guiding us to the right path. That was one amazing part of this trekking. At many turns we were confused and what we did was following the dogs. The path started becoming steeper as we climbed more. After 2 hours we reached at a point where we could see the tiger’s nest far above on the rocks at the edge of a cliff as it looked familiar from the Google images that I admired before the trip. I can’t explain how happy I felt that time. I just wanted to scream to the world that is far below us.aaaaaaa.jpg

My paces started to be faster from that point. There was one cafeteria nearby and many of friends entered it for some refreshment but I didn’t want to rest at that point, I was too excited about getting at the peak. I had to wear my gloves again when it started to be cold again. The only food of that morning was the cold water from the natural springs on the way. Slowly the way became narrow and I became surrounded by large trees which covered all the view to the sky. For a few minutes I felt like I am in “Jungle Book” movie.

aa.jpgGradually I almost reached near to the cliff that is holding the monastery and the “Jungle Book” mood turned slowly into “Karate Kid”. The rest of the path was paved and contain steps. First I had to climb down near to waterfall that almost made me freeze. And this is a sweet spot for anyone who would love to capture some photos. Then I continued. I climbed up to the monastery with huge hunger. I could actually eat at least 2 plates of Indian meal at that time and I knew that I can eat only after finishing the trekking.

The tiger’s nest monastery looked beautiful. It was containing many Buddha statues, the meditation caves and to our wonder, a risky cave that we could enter which led us into the rocks to a small dark chamber. We wished if they allowed photography there. I was happy and fulfilled and not at all sad about the morning sleep I lost.aaaaaaaaaaaaaa

The return journey was quick. But again it was beautiful. I was so happy to meet a lot of people on the way and talk to everyone who are on the way up and to assure them that they worth the risky climbing. Along with two of my friends I relaxed a few moments at the cafeteria. I saw a lot of happy faces that day. It was indeed one of the best memories of my life. And I am sure that this will be a place that I will visit again in my life. I decided to travel more. I think it is a good thing to be consumed by wanderlust!IMG_201610dsada01_070432.jpg

New Lessons

There is a thing about a college. I hate it. I always considered it as a place where I find myself very sad and irritated. But the last few days gave me a lot of new experiences to save into my memory jar. As I mentioned in an earlier post I have an urban study as part of my 9th semester architecture syllabus. We, my batch chose to study the city Alappuzha in Kerala, which is a beautiful city extended between two canals which is often called “Venice of the East”. It was fun to stay with my classmates and late night works were tiring. I am not here to explain about the whole trip. But I wish to share how these few days helped me to explore a part of myself that I never knew.

I tried to capture the best moments in my phone. I was so excited to know about the roots of a city. There were many things new to my knowledge. And we had to conduct a lot of surveys. I am usually a person who would love to sit in my room and read a book even if I wish to travel the world.  But during the study I was forced to do works assigned and it included a big list of things I never thought of doing myself. But results actually shocked me and the best part was the satisfaction and happiness I felt after everything. I was a bit confused to walk into the streets and ask questions to random strangers I met. I had a feeling that what if they do not cooperate. But my experiences were really good that people were happy to talk about them and they were very friendly too. I felt that world is not a bad place to live.

Within a few days I learned many things which I find very difficult to explain. I am happy to see a new part of myself. A talkative and inquisitive person who is very happy to talk to people and find new information, who is ready to hear the stories of people and who enjoys what he does. I think I love this new person. I really don’t like to say I am changing but I love to say that I am growing up. One thing about life is that we are forced to change by certain responsibilities. And we are never going to grow up if we stay afraid to step forward. I still believe that I have to explore a lot about this world and I have to learn more than what I find in books. For the coming days I am happy to be a person who would love to live in a book and to walk out and try to explore something new.
