This is a writeup I wrote last year for Madras Day. "சென்ட்ரல் ரயில் நிலையத்தில் ரயில்களின் எண்ணிக்கை மெரினாக் கடற்கரையின் தூரம் கூவ ஆற்றுப் படுக்கையில் குடிசைகளின் எண்ணிக்கை. தினம் நடக்கும் போராட்டங்களில் பங்குபெறும் மக்கள் எண்ணிக்கை தினம் தினம் பேருந்தில் பயணிக்கும் மக்களின் எண்ணிக்கை.... என்று.... அனைத்தையும் அளந்து கூற முடியும். வெளியூர் சென்று ரயிலில் வரும் போது, சென்ட்ரல் நிலையத்திற்கு...

In any kind of relationship, whether it is with your best bud from school or a new colleague in your office, it is always going to be hard if you are going to have a mind-set which is definitive about everything you share with people. Such people are always noticed defining things, for example,... Continue Reading →
Look, maybe contrary to what others say, sometimes you might feel that the "love" others express to you, is a weakness as you tend to reciprocate more of it and that the "hatred" people show towards you, is what strengthens you. You aren't wrong and you needn't be totally right. I have been there too.... Continue Reading →
Are we afraid to think? Or is it because of a blind egoistic trust we have on our statements that we don’t find a need to think an inch more?
Just when we feel that we have got it all sorted out, this uncertain life of us, throws at us some situations, people, etc and disrupts the clarity.. It's like the popular quote, "When you find the answer, life changes it's question". Out of the blue you meet someone, you get attached to them, time creates illusions and unsettlement, you start to feel insecure, you start missing them and your mind starts to over think. Most of us have gone through this phase of 'insecurity'. Such phases are one of the best learning curves in our lives. So What exactly does a person feel or think during those insecure phases? I have listed down some of the "What-ifs and Maybes that run in an insecure mind"
"No matter how strong you're mentally, you can never be the shoulder to lean upon for everyone you care and it is a harsh truth we all have to accept." No matter how much time you invest in being that person for some people, after a certain point, you'll feel as if all you're... Continue Reading →
I don't know if I am the only one who feels this way or not. So for example, let's say you read and liked a post I wrote about a particular subject or you are interested in something I told you before (say, a film director/movie/any celebrity etc). Now, it's not necessary that I... Continue Reading →
Like a cast of spell it makes us to see things differently. It will be the very same person, you've seen for a long time, in parties and hangouts; It will be the very same person whose Facebook pics know your face more than them. But how is it that you can suddenly notice... Continue Reading →
Have you ever felt that compelling pressure inside you when you know that all it takes to gain respect/ love/ attention/ friendship/care, etc from a particular person was to be like a person whom you can imagine of or to be someone whom you were in your past? Maybe you know that you changed and... Continue Reading →
