A Thousand Splendid Suns – Khaled Hosseini

All through the book , “A Thousand Splendid Suns“, I kept going back to a so- called healthy discussion I had with somebody recently. I shared a post saying “Women suffer more in a war created by men” or something along the line( Context: Taliban taking over Afghanistan) and he was worried or even offended ( can’t account to what […]

Heaven – Mieko Kawakami

I have always been amazed by the way some Asian writers craft their character and storyline. The best part is, it is never just about the stories or people but equally about the character’s emotions, their feelings at a particular moment. The level of detailing is so good that you feel like you are in that person’s head all through […]

Born A Crime – Trevor Noah

To write or share a painful personal memory is hard. But Trevor Noah in his book, Born A Crime, manages to share his coming to age hardships in the most light hearted manner possible. It is informative, inspirational and witty, all at the same time. The book is set in the apartheid, post-apartheid period when it was illegal for a […]

These Days…

When I came home this March with the TCS system, I never thought I will be staying here for this long. Almost 6 months have passed and the weekends on which I couldn’t wait to go home to Amma’s choru and sambhar seems like a distant thing in the past. This is truly a period of realization, a period of […]

Things I miss at Home

I remember waiting for weekends to go home to amma’s choru and sambhar. But now that I am home for months, i can’t help thinking about going back. It’s not that I don’t like it here. I do. But there is this weird sense of freedom that I miss which I was not even aware existed. 1. I miss making […]

Dil Bechara is a Hindi movie based on John Green’s ‘Fault in Our Stars’. This is also actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s last Film. Noting down, how I liked it. A short review, perhaps.

Million Yen Women

100 million yen women is a Japanese series based on a Manga by Shunju Aono and is currently available on Netflix. This is my first ever Japanese drama and I decided to watch it because of the description given. Looking back, there are still some questions left unanswered and chances for doubt, but I thoroughly enjoyed watching this and the […]

Thappad – Not Just A Slap!

I can’t remember the last time my chest felt this heavy after watching a movie and I sit down, trying to note down the scenes that moved me and I can’t narrow it down to scenes. It’s much more. Just how amrita says, it’s not just a slap, I think this movie is not just about a slap. It is […]

Philophobia – The Fear of Love

Today, somebody told you he loves you and scared of love, you tell him you don’t. You think Love is weird. On days like these, when you have to contemplate on love and life, you are reminded of your mother’s hospital days. Those days when you kept shuttling between home and hospital, feeling guilty about the once in a while […]
