The Oldest Person in the room.

At 28, you start to question stuff. Question the world, the society, the life, the surroundings and the existence. You think you know it all until you meet people, you talk to them and you hear their stories. It is right then you feel for yourself, you begin to think and that is when you…

The final Salaam!

My grandmother passed away today, in a distant land surrounded by family.I have so many memories of her, be it her ever smiling face, her advices on my posture correction, or making a phone call to every member of the family and extended family every week. Her message on maintaining family relations, being kind towards…

Move Away

I learnt something different today..

When was the last time you did something new, something different with an intention to acquire a new skill ? In nearly 5 years I didn’t and when I finally did solve a Rubik’s cube my hearth was at ease. I was smiling, not for a selfie but with content. It felt new, it was…

Travel Nostalgia

Travel is about being free, un-judged, spirited, like Christopher McCandless said “The core of mans’ spirit comes from new experiences”. There are over a thousand reasons for us to travel.
