“We never did go to the beach. All that planning for nothing. But somehow, the fake memory of the six of us bathing in the sun burnt into the back of my eyelids, as if we were really there.” – Takemoto Episodes: 36, divided into two seasons Genres: slice of life, romance, comedy Themes: college life, […]

It was a tiny apartment on the 6th floor. Rather, it was just a room with an attached bathroom; no kitchen. There wasn’t anyone to cook anyway. The rent was cheap and it suited Allen well. The place gave all the privacy a writer needed. Not many visited him and he visited no one. On […]

“I used to be a naughty child” That’s what they said to me, So I left the wretched house, Was as happy as I could ever be. There were new people on the streets, White eyes in black sockets, That was when I met a boy, He had picked a hundred pockets. I was useless […]

“This is highly unacceptable! We have been wronged and stripped of our basic rights! But hear you me, my brothers, we shall not stand down!” The voice boomed from all around in the fairly large conference hall, but seemed to have no effect on the silent audience. No stir of approval, no rustling agitation, no […]

Fate/Stay Night will be my first anime review. If you are actually planning to watch it, I warn you; this will be full of spoilers. Name: Fate/Stay Night Genres: Fantasy, romance, action Episodes: 24 My rating: 7/10 It was no coincidence that we met, For it’s a fate arranged long ago.

As you people know, there’s something called the ‘WordPress.com stats helper monkeys’, which publishes a post about how your blog has been going over the past year. For the past 30 minutes, I’ve been trying to get my blog reviewed and have failed. Probably because my blog is less than a year old. Or maybe because […]

Strangely, till a few hours ago I had never spent a waking New Year’s midnight in the physical presence of another human being. It’s in no way by choice. In fact, I realized it just today. Mostly I’m a friendless person; a loner in other words. Partying and dancing with a group of human beings is […]

Yet another failure. Matt Woodifield frowned at the freshly-painted canvas held in his messy palms. Something was missing. Quite amateurish, he decided. The dingy, one-room apartment had grown dark over the past few hours of intense work. A beam of the evening sun, having invaded through a gap in the curtains, traveled across the room […]

Now that Kolkata’s famous monsoons have set in, the view outside the window has undergone some significant changes. No traces remain of the lively neighborhood made bright by the blazing white streets of Mangalam Park. Instead, there lay a dim world dripping with moisture, which might be considered anything between romantic and dull, depending on […]

Once again they scatter; a whirlpool of randomness. Lazy, searching eyes drift across and rest, On a form akin to avian wings. Concrete soothes my back, firm and still, High, surrounding walls bind me to a world unreal, A world of queens and kings. Wings they were, no doubt; what use were wings to clouds? […]

Keeping the rather interesting fact in mind that the primary (and probably, the only) reader of this blog is myself, I’ve decided to come up with another perfectly self-centered post. Let’s just say, it’s meant to be a preservative to my current self, amidst the ever-changing state of things and mind. Either this will jog […]
