Here’s the sad truth. When we are newly minted teenagers, at the age of thirteen the twenties seem like such a grownup age to be. Even though most of us would probably not admit it right now but at thirteen we knew exactly how we wanted our lives to turn out to be when we turn twenty eight.

Of course once you turn eighteen and get officially branded as an adult, you being to realize that ‘adulting’ is difficult. That even though you gain in wisdom and in years, sometimes you do not have all the…


Pet Peeves

The old saying goes, do not make a mountain out of a molehill. But mountains were not built in a day. It’s the little things. It always has been, that adds up to the big thing and then — BOOM — an explosion!

When I tell you to find a seat away from the loud music, do not laugh it off and tell me I’ll get used to it. That two more drinks down I would be the one swaying to the music. For I will roll my eyes at you. …


About Panic Attacks & Prince Charming

Where do I begin? Should I start by sending you the thank you text of us successfully making it through the first day? Or should I just send you a goodnight text and pray that you don’t feel the need to check up on me any time soon? Should I let go of my inhibitions and actually tell you how I feel? Or should I (as protocol demands) be quiet, wait for three days, and then follow up with you — because hey, dating these days is nothing short of chasing your clients for work!

I remember a time when…


One year six months ago, I was reeling having my heart broken in the cruelest possible way. One year ago I let my heart suffer the same fate again. With all the on again and off again hurt we veil as feelings it is of no surprise that over time I decided to shut down completely. If you had asked me if I was seeing someone I’d tell you I was.

But if you asked me if I’d liked someone — I would probably roll my eyes, make a noncommittal shrug, and change the subject.

Because to be honest? I do not remember the last time I felt anything for anyone. Except rage. And annoyance. I do not remember the last time someone’s good…


Hello Sandhya, thank you so much for taking the time out to talk to me.

Thank you for having me!

1. Tell us, how did you take up writing?

I’ve been a writer since I could string sentences together. As I got older, teachers and relatives began to notice that I had a knack for storytelling (or maybe for lying, haha) and encouraged me to keep doing it.

2. And what was your very first attempt at creative writing?

My very first attempt was probably a very badly written, rhyming poem! I don’t remember specifics, but I do remember filling…


Hello Isabel, thank you so much for taking the time out to talk to me.

1. First things first: how did you take up writing?

I’ve been writing since I was very little, basically from the moment I realized that people actually “made” books. There was magic in realizing I could “write,” too.

2. What was your very first attempt at creative writing?

Those little “books” I made when I was four, perhaps? 😊 Like I said, I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t writing.

3. Where did you get the ideas for your stories?

My ideas come from…


There is no problem in the world that tea cannot fix.” — Anonymous

Anyone who knows me surely knows three things about me: I love reading, I love cats and I am in love with tea. When I first moved to Mumbai, I lived with my cousins who were equally addicted to tea as I was. We would take turns in making tea the first one and half months I lived with them. My office thankfully has a canteen that has an endless supply of tea. …


When I first started watching One Tree Hill a dialogue that Peyton Sawyer kept saying like a constant refrain got stuck in my head — people always leave. She even had artwork dedicated to this particular phrase of hers. While she later on believed that people always leave but sometimes they come back, I have grown darker in the way I look at people. I cannot seem to get out of thinking that people do always leave.

I wrote an article last year talking about the people who stay. They stay despite your heartbreak, despite your psychotic outbursts. They are…
