Come to think of it, the single thing that has brought me the maximum joy in life, has always been a piece of paper! Being the nerd that I am, the score cards on the day of results back in school always used to be a welcoming sight! Also, making cute little greeting cards for … More Just a piece of Paper!
“If they do it once, they’d do it again”. I’m like the living breathing example of this quote, for time and again I’ve ditched blogging and WordPress (very very unwillingly though). But what’s done is done. So, I’m not gonna make any more promises of how regular I’m gonna be in my posts from now … More Comeback!
Another award? Looks like I’m getting famous already! 😉 Actually, it has been quite a time since I started STOCHASTIC but due to various reasons I had to put a halt to my blogging and the site went through long phases of absence and inactivity. The result? I lost much of my readership and the … More Chain of Gratitude
Getting homesick in the initial days of your hostel stay is kind of a regular thing, which most people go through (or anybody who goes away from home for long for the first time). Me and my (new) friends were no exception when we left our homes at the beginning of our graduation three years … More Reaching Across The Gap

I was always active when it came to extra-curricular activities but never had I participated in a drama before. Why or how I got selected, I … More That Time I ‘Acted’…
For three years now, I’ve been living in a hostel, and whenever I come home for vacations my mother, grandmother, aunts, cousins (literally everyone except my granddad), start off with their usual comments of how thin I’ve become. And so, I’ll be fed with extra ghee and butter with everything, breakfast will usually be heavy … More Alternatives
Originally I had intended this post to be a movie review about the recent Disney anime release, Zootopia, but now I guess I’d rather stick to the part that I liked most about the movie (I’ll get to it shortly). The movie centres on a fictional city, Zootopia, whose motto is ‘Where anyone could be … More “Where anyone could be anything…”
For any Star Wars fan reading this, the resistance I’m talking about has nothing to do with that resistance. But this resistance has, I feel, a greater role in our lives. It is our tendency to resist any change in our ways of life. You can think of it like inertia, the virtue by which … More The Resistance
As the lens finally adjusted and I opened a watering eye, I was taken aback for a moment- I could finally see my own face so clear without having to hold the mirror very close or wear my glasses. It was when I was in 2nd grade that I first told my teacher I had … More Through my eyes…
