The Death of a Language

Shardul


Venkatesh was an introvert and hardly talked to anyone. No he wasn’t a sociopath, neither was he suffering from depression….he just liked the peace that solace gave him. Far from the maddening crowd if you will. This ensured that his social circle was nothing to brag about. He lived alone in a large farmhouse in … Continue reading

An Unfinished Poem


It makes no sense and I have no idea why I wrote this –  We walk alone,        in this stage of life. The sacred truth,       is quintessentially a strife.   What truth I seek,       in forgone acquaintances. The essence of love,       or its subtle … Continue reading

Twitter Highlights of 2012

And We Fail Again


The rage builds up. It is a cyclic process. They get angry. They will protest. Online petition. Candle light vigils. Poems. Blogs. Articles. Discussions.
