Catharsis in Commencement

*Forewarning: Long post ahead.* Revisiting my older posts made me realise that, seeing how I used to be, how I used to think, brings comfort to my present self and made me realise that things are never as bad as my fucked up head seems to tell me, which brought me great relief. I guess […]

TABERNA HISPANICA

AD CAROLVM QVEM CVPIDO MIHI POSSVIT Tibi scripsi ut videre posses quod esse tecum cupio. Si mihi licet dicere quod sentio tibi. Narrabo tibi nunc ut omnia inceperunt. Illud coepit cum te loquentem videbam apud soldales tuos cursus. Ab illo tempore, oblitus esse tibi non potui. Nescio quid fecisti ut caderem in manibus amoris. Ut […]

This is not really a coherent essay as much as a set of thoughts about some tough times stuck together. Read it as such. (Apologies for the typos, I didn’t proof-read much). (My friends and I flying back from HK to Mumbai in Jan 2018). Stray thoughts. I’m 26 and a half. In January—when the […]

There are countless remarks one could make to preface the narcissistic task of ranking the best works of musical artistry within a given year by ones own subjective estimation. As I attempt to do just that, my focus will come guided by the understanding that all year-end lists are is a representation of the writer’s […]
