Matrika’s Journal – a Notebook That Will Make You Write

When my friend Srilakshmi sounded excited about the Matrikas notebook, I was like “Dude! Why do you have to get so excited. What new can be done with a notebook! Her immediate response was “Get one and you will know yourself” As per her recommendation, I got a Matrikas journal as part of the outreach program. The product surprised me even before I opened it. The packing was solid and they shipped within a day or two from my friend referring me on their Facebook page. This shows how much they care about their customers and the pace at which…

My Blog Will Be Taking a New Direction

Hello Everyone, When I started my blog in 2013, my only goal was to improve my writing habit. I did not put so much thought into what I am going to write in my blog. Until now, I write blog posts on random topics. I even found my tagline “Specialist in Mastering Nothing” to be cool. But, recently I realized that specialization is the key to becoming a serious blogger. When people ask me “what do you blog about?”, I often say “I don’t know!…random stuff”. I feel that shouldn’t be an answer coming from someone who blogs for more than…

I am shameless. But, that’s okay!

I have friends who often tell me that I am shameless. Reason? Well, according to them, I make a statement or have an opinion about something and later will stand different to what I said. I don’t deny. I’ve done that a couple of times. Example? I always hated the idea of buying expensive footwear. The most expensive pair of shoes I’ve got since last year was for Rs.1099. When one of my friends told me that they had bought a new pair of shoes for Rs.2500, I said “buying expensive shoes is a waste of money.” But, things became…

Me vs. The green stick

I studied in an English medium school. But, like every other English medium school, we all spoke in Tamil. We spoke in Tamil, we swore in Tamil. But, the teachers, as per the rules, spoke in English. But, we stuck to speaking in Tamil. The management had tried so hard to control the students and bring them the habit of speaking in English. They thought that the school atmosphere would look great if everyone spoke in English. They tried several methods, but nothing worked out. Then, one of the teachers (or the headmaster himself?) came up with this idea. They…

Deciphering a girl’s profile on Tinder: Mission impossible

Tinder is slowly picking up pace in India. For those who don’t know what is Tinder, it is a popular online matchmaking/dating app that lets you find singles in your area. Based on your location, you will be shown pictures of single men/women in your area and if you like them you swipe right and if you don’t you swipe left. If they also like you, then you get to chat inside the app. You can then decide to go on a date, or if you find the person boring, you break it off and move on to swiping the…

The hot idlis that gave me the chills

It was a fine morning in Bangalore. I woke up and looked around. I had slept for more than six hours. People usually say that you won’t get proper sleep when you’re in a new place. But, my system is an exception. When the clock hits half past ten, I doze off. No matter what happens. I was in Bangalore to visit my friend. It’s been a while since I visited Bangalore and I thought it would be a nice break from the usual routine. I looked into the adjacent room and I saw my friend waking up slowly. After…
