And that is saying something, is it not? I realize I might have said a lotContinue reading “Dear Neel #11”

I don’t know if it is a general excitement of my exaggeration or not, I really don’t know, I haven’t really measured. All I knowContinue reading “Dear Neel #9”

Dear Neel #6

Dear Neel I can’t believe this is just the sixth letter I am writing to you. It feels like I have been writing you for ages, telling you undeserved stories and keeping you up to date with my goings on. Not that I hate any of it, but I thought it had to be theContinue reading “Dear Neel #6”

Dear Neel #5

Dearest Neel, I almost forgot to write you a letter this month. Almost. Because see I made it a point to write before the month ends, before the year ends, before 2021 bids adieu, before the two’s welcome us. I have long given up on writing to you on the 15th of every month, IContinue reading “Dear Neel #5”

Dear Neel #4

It took me two months to get back to you. You, on the other hand, seem not to care. What carelessness you portray? What deceptiveness? And I try to perceive- reality, time. Obviously, I fail. It had never been my intention to stop writing to you, to ghost you for a whole of sixty-five days.Continue reading “Dear Neel #4”

An Ode To 2020

Women, wrong; Men, wrong Blame patriarchy A trend set fake feminism. Truths hidden, sources misused Toxicity left, an only muse. Wander, wander around if you will Find, find the source if you will Failure, an only accomplice. Poverty and texture in coarse rumblings Death_ No food A trickle of water? Lost families Lost homes WhereContinue reading “An Ode To 2020”
