When this year began, I had a vision of where I wanted to be before I turn 26. I am not the one who usually makes new year’s resolutions, mainly because I am phenomenally lazy. Seriously, I’m the laziest person I have ever met. I am a serial procrastinator. I work only about two hours a day and just barely enough to not get fired. Maybe subconsciously I’m an adrenaline junkie who gets high off of doing things in the last minute. I don’t know… bear with me, I am trying to figure this out myself.
My resolutions for this year was to get fit, learn to play some guitar, travel, read and write. So I started this blog and I like to think that I have improved my writing a little bit. I lost 7 kgs. I traveled solo to couple of places, read few books. The guitar part is where I’m stuck. It just takes so much time and effort!
I haven’t written anything in over two months. This is a countdown post to my birthday. I guess my adrenaline has just kicked in. I want to make 25 a memorable year for me. Right now its a frickin’ sine curve or maybe I have flatlined… I don’t know, I’m bad at math too. So, let me get back to dusting my guitar…
I just finished reading “The Girl Who Played with Fire” and wanted to add it to my collection on GoodReads. Going through the list of my already read books on the site, I noticed something shocking. Continue reading “An addiction to renew?”
We are all bound by invisible chains holding us, stopping us from doing anything. Our captors who hold the other end of our chain, stand in the way of our dreams. Each with their own agenda seem to yank us two steps back for every step that we take.
Then there comes the day we count the number of chains on our neck as we struggle to breath. There comes the day when we see who these captors are – Continue reading “Selfish”

In a world filled with Fallons, Kimmels, Olivers and Colberts… Two best friends host a daily talk show on youtube, without celebrities *BAM* without a customary Donald Trump joke *WHOOSH* without the help of multi-billion dollar media companies *WHAM*… They set out to get ten million subscribers and two billion views by doing what they do best… Comedy.

Here’s the deal… India is not a land of snake charmers. I have been living in India for the past 25 years (all my frickin’ life) and have seen exactly two snake charmers.
We are not all cab drivers or customer support or software engineers. Also, there is no language called “Indian”.
There is a growing resentment among Indians about the way India is portrayed in hollywood movies and about how the rest of the world perceives them. Continue reading “Sorry hollywood, but this is the real India. #rant”
TIL that my life has been a lie. I have been breaking down my life into bits and pieces to analyze what went wrong and why I have become the way I am.
Few memories have resurfaced and I have come to realize that almost all of my outlook on life, my behavior and my fears are based on one incident that happened to me when I was a seven year old.
My life (and probably yours too) believe it or not, is shaped by few incidents – minor and major that make who you are. In the nature vs nurture debate, I am pro-nurture.
Its going to take a lot of time to change back to who I truly am (or I think I am). Two decades of mental wiring and conditioning to rewire…
This story was originally slated for my memoir – “Embarrassing facepalm moments of an awkward introvert (Part 1)“.
Enter me, the 22 year old college hire on his first software project. Continue reading “Embarrassing moments @ work #1”
