Take Care

Take Care

Most of the time when I am walking through the University , I am walking in my own zone, thinking about my notes , making sure I walk between tiles , my time table and so many other things . Then suddenly some girl just calls out my name , I don’t remember her name but I know the familiar small talk we are going to have . First: Exclamatory hi! . Second: How is it going/ internship question/ wow you are about to graduate questions . Then it’s time to say goodbye and then we both say “Take Care” . These three questions are programmed in my subconscious mind , just to prove myself a human . After the goodbye I am confused for a moment giving a name to the individual I just met . Small talk is not the issue , the thing is we are saying words not knowing their meanings . Even knowing the meaning we are using them recklessly rendering them without meaning progressively .

Unfair but Lovely

As an Indian , I have always had aunties , grannies , sisters and friends telling me not to play in the sun . Even some guys wouldn’t come out to play , but being the stubborn kid I was I never ceased . I am a product of a Dark chocolate dad and White chocolate mother hence a Milk chocolate . I was always happy with what I had , even if I would have been I do not remember . So I have crossed level 22 and I never had such issues .

NETWORK

NETWORK

I was an active social media user a few years back , I do use it now but to a very limited extent . Why I limited it to a certain level deals with how I used it before . Looking back it appears so embarrassing , but growing is a process , maybe a few months later I will find my blogs idiotic . Right now I find them cheesy . Just like studying the importance of a particular sequence in the DNA , sometimes it’s mutated or deleted or made non-functional . I deleted the place of social media from my life . It was an eye opener , here are a few things I derived from this detox Continue reading “NETWORK”

Baby Steps

There are days I just don’t want to get up . I feel I cannot handle anything .

This year I have tried to get out of places . I am blogging here which was one of the things on my bucket list . Continue reading “Baby Steps”

Things that make you an Indian

Things that make you an Indian

 

  1. You wake up to your parents blaring Bhajan 7 am. in the morning
  2. After 8 am. your father disappears behind newspapers and then you can hear corrupt! corruption! at a ten seconds interval . If you approach your father for money during this time it all will end to you nodding your head to his opinion about politics.
  3. If you are a Punjabi butter cannot miss out on your plate. Your mom is never satisfied that you have had enough
  4. Your T.V. remote is covered in bubble wrap or some sort of plastic sheet.
  5. Your mom cannot tolerate a slipper lying around . I wonder who has spread this viral information about slippers lying around cause negativity in house.
  6. You know how to recycle. You drink water out of bottles of coca cola or other soft drinks lying around. A jar of cookies will never have cookies. All poly bags that ever entered your land will be stored up to eternity.
