Letter from a ghost!

A cold night, a warm black hoodie, hands in the pockets, and headphones in the ears. Eyes half-closed, as steps, blindly followed the usual route on the tune of “Perfect“. Serene streets, misty air, and not even a single living entity insight. It was just another midnight walk, on my favorite streets of IIM Bangalore.Continue reading “Letter from a ghost!”

Perfect colors and imperfect hues!

Steam rising from a colourful teacup. A colourful teacup lightly perched on the delicate glass table. The glass table holding the dreamy hand of a girl with light bangs and deep eyes. Her deep eyes holding the secret to her beautiful smile. As she waited in anticipation for her interview results to come out, sheContinue reading “Perfect colors and imperfect hues!”

Bookmarks!

“I am really tired of your any-time-reading habit now.” His anger was indeed genuine for his co-passenger. She would always carry a book or two in her purse, and open them at every opportune moment.

Live through stories!

“I am not the most patient person in the world, am I?” Fidgety fingers and feeble foot-taps had already given it away, but his impatience would still require a nod of confirmation from her. “I don’t know about the world, but you are!” The smile on her face had a hinge of naught in itContinue reading “Live through stories!”

A crossing under the lamp post!

He noticed the figure approach him again, as he continued his daily walk on that circular footpath around the park. It was tracing that path in the anticlockwise direction, opposite to his clockwise trail, and so they would pass each other, twice, as they continued to promenade in that dark night. He tucked his handsContinue reading “A crossing under the lamp post!”

Rewriting the past!

“This is just like Budapest!” – Natasha Romanoff “Well, you and I remember Budapest very differently!” – Hawk Eye I watched The Avengers for the first time when I was hardly 18, and after that, I’ve kept revisiting it every now and then, just to enjoy the awesome fight scenes, funny jabs, lets-come-together-and-save-the-world story lineContinue reading “Rewriting the past!”

Perfect endings!

“So, you just let her walk away?” She was puzzled and angry at the same time. “Yes.” He wasn’t either. Rather, he was just calmly sipping his coffee, like nothing has happened. “With her ex?” She just couldn’t believe him. It was not in his nature to be so calm, that too, at such anContinue reading “Perfect endings!”

Lost and Found

“Welcome to the lost and found section. How may I assist you?” “I think I’ve lost something.” “And what it would be?” “My life.” “That is indeed a serious problem then. When did you lose it?” “I woke up today, and realized that I don’t have it anymore. I don’t even know when did IContinue reading “Lost and Found”

How to know a job or company is ideal for you – The PWC framework!

“Hello Abhishek, I hope I didn’t disturb you.” The half-slept, half-awaken me took some time to recognize that voice on the call, as it broke my sweet sleep, with my bed being the back seat of my Uber. A sudden speed-breaker helped me to get back to my senses, and I looked at my phonesContinue reading “How to know a job or company is ideal for you – The PWC framework!”
