The Art Speaks Not to Me

I am not a lover of art works. I do not see the meanings you want me to see, the hidden mysteries and the deep words they supposedly speak.

Twenty – One

I turned 21 today. I cannot remember ever being this excited about growing older, and yet the cause of this innate happiness remains elusive.

Death

The Hult and the Hurt

I woke up today knowing I would write. My team was pitching at the Hult prize competition in my University to select the finalists for the regional rounds.

It’s okay, for everything not to be okay

When I was a kid, one of the first lessons I learnt from experience and on my own was that something would always go wrong. I didn't have to read a motivational book or the sayings of an old man, I just figured it out before I learnt the pronunciation of "bouquet". In that tiny… Continue reading It’s okay, for everything not to be okay
