As all serious reading goes, one starts the book and puts it down only to pick it up again. The need to savour the richness of the written word, to relish the work is necessary for such reading. Like a crystal glass filled with golden liquid, shimmering with that forbidden flavour, sip-savour-relish-sip; and so we live.Read More »

Remember how I told you that music was a part of my everyday life? So here I am to write about it. Wondering where to start, I had a light bulb go off in my brain. Like Wow! Let’s talk about stuff on my Spotify Liked list.
The languages in which I listen to songs are many. I do not even understand some of them. Of those I can understand, I will try and write better. The rest of them, it will be about the music and the feels.
Now, let’s begin.Read More »
Every door I faced,
Every time I lived,
With rapid pace there you exist.
Should there be a time
That I find myself alone,
Devoid of your company,
A newness unknown
I will have found.
Anxiety, the name you were given,
Who I will have then forgiven.
Needlessly or perhaps not.
Social media is something that we have all been used to for more than a decade now. Is there a way without it now? No. For all the debates that surround the pros and cons of social media, it is quite useful.
I remember during the 2015 Chennai floods, it was a god send when arranging for relief and getting in touch with those in charge of rescue etc. Then again one is often reminded about the Kar_ianseque usage of social media and one is put off. The need for having a perfect presence online is rubbish.
Have we ever been perfect in real life? Why strive for the needless existence online then? Perfection is grossly overrated. Social media is for me a way to destress. Watching home tours for one. Those pristine countertop and spotless windows always get me in the zen zone. Run BTS anyone!?? Those superstars running around doing whatever tasks whilst being hilariously un-superstar like is ROFL funny.
The hate online for absolutely no reason, the abundance false information, the he said – she said drama… these are all not for me. Social media whilst a huge part of the occupation is also something that I can personally step back from and use to de-stress. I love that one can make friends and get to learn something new every single day.
If I have to write about social media, then I can absolutely not withhold writing about the blogging and bookish community which I discovered. It has been fun across all platforms!
