College Life

IS. THIS. FOR. REAL.

Saturday morning, I’m home for Rakshabndhan (if you have no idea what that means, check out this previous post), I switch on my mobile packet data and suddenly my Whatsapp is flooded with “Heyyy! Congratulations!” or “Girl, whoooaa! Partyyyy” and I’m like: Then as I regained my composure and started going through the messages one… Continue reading IS. THIS. FOR. REAL.

Blogging

A Happy Surprise!

I’m going through my notifications (which I’m able to do a lot less often than before, because of the busy college schedule and the crappy wifi connection), I see ‘Surprised by a Blogger Recognition Award’ in the scroll window and I’m like, “Is this for real?” I’m relatively new to the blogging world and up… Continue reading A Happy Surprise!

Life

Mystery Unlocked…

The moment I saw this cue-art by Shafali- The Mystery Chest– as part of her Creativity Carnival, this little incident sprang to my mind.   It happened when I was eight and always eager to indulge in anything exciting, illusional and most importantly, stupid! So, at one point of time I got obsessed with treasure-hunting… Continue reading Mystery Unlocked…

College Life

Confusions, Compromises and Passions

Been almost a month since I wrote something, but in my defense, college just started (after the end sem break) and getting back in the habit has been taking up most of my time. Anyways, returning back to my hostel room felt good. In fact, as strange as it may sound, this feels more like… Continue reading Confusions, Compromises and Passions

Philosophy

Oblivion

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Finite Creatures.”

I don’t remember when exactly I came across the words, life and death, and the concepts behind them. In fact the only conversation I remember distantly related to this is the one I’m recounting below. It happened a very long time ago, with my dad and I’m using my imagination to fill in the gaps which I’ve forgotten:

Me: Papa, do you believe in immortality, ‘life after death’ or anything of the sort?

He: Not really, I believe that we have just one life. Whatever we do, good deeds or bad, and whatever we get, it’s balanced out in this life alone.

Me: And how can you be sure of ‘this life’? (I moved my hands around me in the air, pointing to everything in the room around us).

He: What do you mean?

Me: I mean, what if this life is not the way we’ve perceived it? What if right now, it’s not us- me and you- sitting and talking here? What if all this is just in one of our (or both) heads?

He: You mean what if all this is just a dream?

Me: Yeah, something like that…

He: Hmmm… that’s interesting. But beta, that is the big question none of us know the answer to!

Each time we get up in the morning, we can’t be certain that we’re actually getting up! Maybe it’s all just a dream, as you say! May be the real universe is so very different from this one and what is actually happening there is unfathomable.This is something beyond us, and we have no control over it! In fact, that redefines the time scale and even life and death, as we know them.

Me: Wow! So, who knows we might me immortals after all!

Here’s a picture I found on FB (shared by 9GAG) sometime back, which I feel goes with the post:

What do you think about the ultimate ‘reality’? Are we all in a dream? Or how about ‘immortality’?

Read? Yep! Understood? Ummm…

Okay so as part of today’s assignment under blogging101, I’m supposed to post something which goes with one of the comments I made on a fellow blogging101 course-mate’s blog. I read this post made by Lydia on her blog: https://aidyl93.wordpress.com/2015/07/15/writing-is-hard/ It’s about how she’s writing a novel (which is awesome, by the way!) and she got… Continue reading Read?
