The Musing Quill is 6!

Time really does fly. Six years is a long time and a short one yet, if you know what I mean. Looking back, there are hundreds of memories and few amazing friends I made along the way and there isn't one thing I would want to change about my experience. Except, I miss all those...

Pleasures & Perils of 2017

The year 2017 was so eventful that when I look back there is not one thing I would change. Although, there were moments that got the good of me and left me mighty drained. But I did pledge to take it all in good spirits. Well, where do I begin? December, of all months, has... Continue Reading →

‘Twas Christmas…

‘Kiss it goodbye,’ mum says. 'You're unbelievable,' I fume. She knows me. I love wallowing in my sorrows. I embrace them tighter than my skin clings to my body. I just cannot forget. And how do you forgive someone who wronged you? When they hurt you intentionally? Mum? She is brilliant at it. Always swearing... Continue Reading →

Diwali Frenzy

Right since childhood, we Indians are taught that Diwali is a festival of lights. But I think there's more to it. The festival of lights has a deeper meaning than what is propagated. As I delve deeper into the religious background of the festival, I discover that lighting lamps, making rangolis, decorations, is just the... Continue Reading →

On Independence Day

While the nation celebrates another year of independence, I fail miserably in convincing myself to join in the massive celebrations. I don’t get a sense of freedom today. Ask me why! I struggle to understand, what being free means. Freedom from foreign clutches? Is that what being free means? ♥ Am I really free? If I... Continue Reading →

When Dad turned 50

As a kid, I loved to celebrate birthdays. The best part about them were - A week prior to the birthday, Dad would ask what I'd loved to do and he would get me a present around that. When I was 8 or so, I’d told him that I loved to read stories. So for my... Continue Reading →
