Last Vacation Ever With Mom – Murree, 2010 (Pictures)

These pictures were taken during that trip, from a camera she had gifted me. Partly because photography seemed to take my mind away from the impending doom and partly because a part of me was still hopeful she'd live and we'd look back to these pictures and smile together. Soon after, she passed away (24th August, 2010) and I stopped taking pictures since my life had reduced to surviving every single breath. I had kept them in wraps since. Never showed them to anyone.

Fragments From My Past: A Little Motivation

Read this if you’re wondering what ‘Fragments From My Past’ is all about. It won’t take too long. This post is, roughly, from five years ago. I was taking my O Level courses back then and was asked by a self-assessment Facebook ‘quiz’ where I see myself in 5 years and my answer can be seen in [...]

Happy Mother’s Day and R.I.P. (The Hardest Post I’ve Ever Had To Write!)

Alright, then. It's finally time. I've NEVER spoken about my Mom on a public platform or for that matter, I don't even talk about her with my friends or my family, because talking or even thinking about her feels worse than dying on being stabbed with the sharpest knife a one thousand and ninety-nine times [...]

Free verse poem: The Perfect Kingdom..

Once upon a time, in a far away land, Lived a beautiful queen with her smile so bright, her King tall and dark, and a princess with the widest eyes! Their lives were the merriest and their laughters so loud! Hers was a kingdom all filled with smiles, Unicorns and rainbows, and people so fine. They laughed and celebrated, [...]

Snippets from my diary: So, how old am I?

I remember how back when i was a kid, being 20, was what I thought the oldest somebody could get. Now that I am 20 (and 14 days, for that matter), things haven’t changed a lot. In fact, nothing feels different. I mean, other than the fact I’m no more a teen (and of course, [...]
