Dear Future Daughter

Dear future daughter, It is 2019 when I am writing you this letter. I am young and strong and carefree now as you may see in my photographs later. I am not sure when you will be reading this, but I hope you do. In 2019 I am in Mumbai and Auntie Shreya is in... Continue Reading →

A sunrise by the sea

The sea without daylight is eerie. It’s beautiful and yet daunting. It is not the friend I know it to be when the sun is above us. At night it is more like the big hollow inside me. With only the whites of the waves visible… the wind... the darkness and the vastness of it... Continue Reading →

Rainbow and rain. Morning and hope. Her and me. People talk. I let them. They have... Continue Reading →

My disease has no cure!

My dear friends and my resolute enemies. My beautiful stalkee, beard brothers and sinister sisters, fellow kleptomaniacs and all you ugly children of Satan.
