Saudade

I roam the deserted streets where we once spent happy times, With the echoes of our laughter to keep me company. And I’m reminded of the sparkles in your eyes that brightened the darkest of nights, When we sat by the waterfall as the world fell asleep, Making promises we could never keep.

IN LOVE WITH THE IDEA OF LOVE

This one is for my fellow dreamers, readers, dark academics, and lovers of love. (Recommended: put some classical music on, get yourself a cup of tea and enjoy! Wistfully looking out of a window will round out the effect perfectly.) Have you ever asked yourself questions you didn’t have answers to?  Why does every single one of us chase love?…

Apple recently launched the Airpods Max, just around the end of the Year that we wish wasn’t – 2020. Well, you’ll be saying, it’s an Apple product and is great, but I say wait until you hear its price tag of a whopping $549, and in India 59,900 INR! At first, I was so incensed I just skipped them. But…

THE SONG OF ACHILLES- A 16-Year-Old’s Review

RATING: ✭✭✭✭✭/5 stars “I could recognize him by touch alone, by smell; I would know him blind, by the way his breaths came and his feet struck the earth. I would know him in death, at the end of the world.” I read “The Song of Achilles” by Madeline Miller in under two days- once I picked this book up,…

stop

I can hear my heart thumping. The cage around it might just break with the strength of its palpitations. My hands are ice cold. I blow a puff of my shaky breath into them trying to warm them up. Yet they just tremble in response. My head is in a frenzy, I hadn’t paid attention to what my friends were saying…
