Fly Away

Sometime I feel extremely inspired to paint, at other times, however, I don’t. I painted this after around a month a of suffering through an artist’s block. The inspiration came in when I was listening to “Butterfly” by Miley Cyrus while reading a book, last week. Butterflies have always inspired me from a very young…

90’s Kid?

I was born on 15th November 1999 (literally on the edge of the 90’s) and hence it has always been difficult to relate to all the “90’s kid” posts while it has also been tough to not relate to some of them. For example, in in the first image (Fig 1.0) I can relate to…

One Magical Way to Improve Your Grades

It is that time of the year again! Finals are knocking at the door and I am not that extremely studious boy in class who literally nails each and every exam. In fact, I am far from that guy. For our kind of people, it is usually pretty difficult to go about studying hours on…

To Kill A Mockingbird- Book Review

Where do I even start? It has been some time since I have read this book, and a pretty long time since the book has been published and received huge acclaim among any and every niche of readers possible, hence I have reconsidered reviewing this book many times. But here I am nevertheless, as my…

5 books I brought to 2017

It’s been a month since the new year has begun and as I am recovering from a writer’s block, here are 5 books, from what I read in 2016, that I loved and brought to 2017! 1. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak This book is literally one of the best books I read in…

2016…It’s a wrap!

Is it only me or does everyone think the year ended away too quickly? I know I say this in every year end post of mine, but yet again, this year was the best year of my life till date. With new experiences, opportunities, friends (and enemies), aquantiances, places, books and memories this year was…

The Time I met John Shiels

John Shiels is the CEO of the infamous football team Manchester United. He had come to India for a project which focused on developing and providing opportunities to underprivileged native footballers in collaboration with Adidas. I, along with another fellow journalist, went to interview him on behalf of The Times Of India. Here’s my experience:…

Fantastic Beasts Screenplay Book Review

I ultimately finished reading the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them – Official Screenplay” by none other than J.K.Rowling, of course. I really thought about not reviewing the book as it would technically be a movie review, but then, I changed my mind…so yeah! The book was extremely well written especially considering that this…

InspirEd 2016 Speech

The Times Of India organised a teacher’s meet on the 19th of November 2016. Alongside various prestigious speakers like Shashi Panja and Prof. Anindyo Sen, I was invited to speak, to thank teachers as well as inspire them to motivate minds. The teachers were handed out firkis (rolling paper blades) as a symbol of change….

Wonder by R.J. Palacio – Book Review

The saying goes, “Never judge a book by its cover”, but this book was good from the inside as well as out. The iconic illustration by Ted Carpenter draws us to the novel more. The book deals with August, a ten-year-old child, who has been home-schooled all his life. It takes the reader through a…

Like a Rolling Stone

If I asked who Robert Allen Zimmerman from Minnesota, USA is you would probably not be able to recollect anything…but if I asked you who’s song is “Blowin’ in the Wind”, you will probably know the answer. The weird part is, they both are the same person. I was introduced to Bob Dylan a.k.a. Robert…

Why I will never Vlog!

​So before getting into the real post, let’s get into some terminology; the term vlogging is derived from combining the terms blogging and video. Whereas websites and blogs have traditionally been text-heavy, vlogging is the act of recording your information and thoughts on video as opposed to written format. (That is terrifying in the first place!)
So just before you people request anymore or I go completely insane/loose my memory, here are 5 reasons why I will never vlog…
