Sometime back I visited a friend. Us taking that journey was not only an act of visitation but also an act of mourning. Our pal had lost his father. When we arrived he hugged us and said nothing. He turned his gaze away from us and held his head down for some minutes. He then…

It gets tiresome each time a conversation heads down the lamentation path where eligible bachelor’s desire for control is usually the main trigger behind the pursuit of slightly younger women.

Next Life

In our next life, we wish to be rich. No, wealthy to be precise is the correct word. There is nothing noble in poverty. It withers away the day and night, for the invariable sauerkraut of greens. We want to dress nice, without having to sacrifice our meals. We want to travel the world and…

Saint John

It is not easy. It’s hard. But every man will experience it. A woman will break your heart. You’ll be alone in the dead of the night, listening to two sad songs on loop. Alternating between grief & anger. Some men will overcome it, some will carry the scar for life. There are three primary…
