‘I may smoke..I may drink I may grow..I may shrink If you protest…I wil make faces The underline is that I love vices’ These lines are not some kind of revolutionary masterpiece…yet they managed to get Gaurav 200+ likes after he reposted it in his timeline. The last time he had posted those lines was around a year ago..hardly 2 or 3 likes had welcomed it before it got lost under more likeworthy newsfeeds. Since…the last few months…Gaurav has become a superhit user of Facebook. His every update…most of which are reposts…gathers a humongous number of likes and comments. Last month…Gaurav had his birthday. More than 500 known…semi known and even unknown friends wished him the special day. It was Read more

Waiting at the ISBT, Guwahati, saw many buses leaving and coming into it. It was a big network of buses. I was complaining god for I was not able to get the love of my life. I continued with myself conversation and the bus that I booked arrived at the 29 terminus of the Bus stand just in front of me. It was almost a genial night to travel. I was travelling from Guwahati to Sivasagar. It was almost half past 9 and the bus started in its trail. I took the window seat on the front row of the bus.

Want to listen?” I replied looking down the ground while I was half-seated in the first chair. “Yes, I have hell lot of time, Vinod. You can start the story”, Ramen Read more

What can happen in half a decade? How much change can there be? To be honest Mayur didn’t want to answer these questions. He knew, deep inside him that what he had long five years ago is never coming back to him.

He claims her to be his good friend, but his close friends know that Mayur can die a thousand deaths for her, he can jump a thousand fires to Read more

What is Love actually? What are its limitations? From where it starts and where it ends? This small word which attracts almost everybody, does it really have a great meaning? If we ask people to define love, I am sure it will entail a lot of definitions. Neither of them will be right and complete, nor would they be wrong. One thing is sure; every definition would lead us to an element of devotion, piousness and selflessness. We grew up reading the story of ‘Radha’ who saw God in Krishna. We have also read about Meera, who drank poison for Krishna. We also witnessed the legends of Heer Ranjha, Laila Majnu, Romio Juliette, to name few. One common thing between Read more
