I Exist in a dog’s mouth

I was sitting in a cafe, sipping a cold drink. The drink passed in my throat, I can feel it going down my throat and falling into my belly. Right when it hit the bottom of my stomach, I couldn’t feel it anymore. This thought struck my mind, and it made e forget that I’mContinue reading I Exist in a dog’s mouth

Ultimate truth of life

The ultimate truth of Life!

What is true? How can we conclude something to be true and something to be false? Isn’t it ironical, that confirming that something is false, becomes confirming truth about that ‘thing’ to be false!

Congratulations! It’s a bartender!

Being born in India is like being born with a head tag that reads out one’s career.

But it’s a bit different here,Continue reading Congratulations! It’s a bartender!

But I decided to write it as a story for everyone that had supported me back then. I hope you like it. Modified and rewroteContinue reading The Pizza Box
