Our Greatest Leap

“It’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” – Neil Armstrong, July 20, 1969, from the Moon. Earth, birthplace and home of mankind. This phrase is a mere burlesque version of our present state of being. Of the over 4.5 billion years of the existence of our planet, we have inhabited it for…

800 SQ.FT lonely

This time when I stepped on the landing of my home floor I did not ring the bell. The thud of the latch and the click of the lock, directed me to the chimera of living room. For all it was neat and too perfect to bear. It smelled unsullied. Threw my bag on the…

A Momentary Lapse of Sanity

When you don’t get a ticket for Coldplay but you still go outside the arena, stand on the road divider of Bandra-Kurla Complex road just to hear Coldplay play live and think that’s best you could get and make up your mind with it but suddenly out of nowhere the gate crew member of the…

The Great War – Prelude

“One day the great European war will come out of some damned foolish thing in the Balkans” – Otto von Bismarck (1888) The earlier twentieth century did have a lot of talks about the outcome of the great European war – A War to end all Wars. This was derived from the ambitions of military…

Perpetual Crux

< p style=”text-align:center;”>It’s not something about me, it’s something within me, It isn’t something that lives within me, it’s something that lives of me. It’s not a part of me, I’m a part of it. How can something so unnatural and complex be described For even if our power of imagination lies far wide infinity,…

KATTA. A testimony.

Public spaces. What are public spaces? Let’s re frame this. What makes a space Public? For me, an Ideal Public Space is the one where each individual of each age group has a scope of contribution. Right from the ancient times, city planners have been striving to balance movement of humans and urban/public spaces. From…

The Longing

Originally posted on The Satirical Engineer:
          Strange things have happened since I left home for college. Things I wouldn’t have experienced unless I left my small world- Nashik, in search of a bigger and more adventurous world- Pune. I’ve met many courteous people and a few who were not. I must say that I’ve learnt…

A Year in Dream

Dream!? Maybe something you can’t stop thinking of, something which doesn’t let you sleep and probably something you think, you’ll be satisfied after fulfilling it.I can still feel the same “Adrenaline rush” which I felt a year ago, when I was about to fulfill one of my dreams, living in “The City Of Dreams –…

The Greatest Duels of Ice and Fire

With the Battle of the Bastards and Tower of Joy, we saw clashes of warriors that would surely be a matter of ease for the bards to sing. In our 12000 year old history of Westeros, several great duels have taken place that, in all their bloodiness, are a spectacle for the eyes. Fights that…

Expanding Emotions

I didn’t have anything to post for a long time now as I’m working on something big or maybe I’m too lazy to get over the Game Of Thrones fever and the council interviews and clearing my examinations and going to MUNs and tripping and eating pizza and falafels and Waffles and fondues and fries…

Identity crisis.

Over the last year people around me have failed to judge what I have really gotten myself into. Some have gone to the depths of “O, toh Architecture banne wale ho. Wahi log na jo nakshe banate hai? Are gharon ke nakshe!” I feel that it deserves a little more justice. Once you have opted…
