Hello, I’m glad you are here.
We as a people have pondered for centuries together the big questions of life and death. My blog began with a simple urge to write funny essays for people to read, with the occasional story or poem thrown in. Now, I do that while trying to figure out a solution to the issue of fleeting time and short memories.
Everything ends, unfortunately. It is something I want to fight, and literature and art is the medium. This beautiful video is perhaps the best representation of what I am trying to do.
Having moved out from under the protective shade of the wings of my parents and on to Bangalore to pursue an education, I am a ’92-born man much too small for the city and much too big for the classroom. My intense emotional nature and strong appreciation for brutal honesty stem from two major incidents during my school years – one where my best friends collectively decided to stop speaking to me, and one where miscommunication and a white lie peeved my principal and scared me into physical pain. These incidents helped me create a mantra to live by, “Don’t lie, don’t stagnate, don’t hold back.”
I feel I should be devoting much more time to reading, but nevertheless I grew up with a healthy dose of fantasy and storytelling in my life, which lets me appreciate literature. My love for literature comes from a set of wonderful English teachers at school, and from having realized the escapism I experienced while reading books from authors of teens’ novels, such as J.K. Rowling, Rick Riordan and Eoin Colfer, and from authors of more serious content such as Agatha Christie, Paulo Coelho and Dan Brown, among others.
While I cannot hope to fill the shoes of giants, I fight impermanence in my own small effort, by writing essays about my experiences or opinions, and by writing original content in poems and stories when I can, and especially when I feel a strong emotional impulse. I have been able to convert this love for writing into a career, providing writing services for hire in both part-time contracts a full profile as a technical writer.
