The mirror of time

The mirror of time does strange things. The princess was shown hanging upside down. The poetess, changing diapers. The king of sarcasm with his mouth zipped, his mistress at the background. Characters of old, fading to pure white. And finally, the storyteller, hiding within the graduate, who was in turn groping at minimalism & nothingness! I like it…. my friends would as well … Share […]

Getting serious about Minimalism – How to eliminate clutter?

Getting serious about Minimalism – How to eliminate clutter?

It has been close to three weeks since I bumped on minimalism and I am taking slow but sure measures to declutter. Most of you must have seen my initial measures which I wrote about last week. I touched upon the topic of downsizing my stuff and also enforcing check points for reducing my time spent on social platforms. Here are a few ways that […]

Is minimalism necessary for Indians?

Is minimalism necessary for Indians?

Ever since I got introduced to minimalism, one question has kept ringing in my head. “Is minimalism necessary for Indians?”. In true Indian sense, I want to deny and dismiss the thought and say “no”. How can a western concept be applicable for India? Have our elders not always taught us to save and not be consumed by consumerism? On the flip side, if we […]

For more information of minimalism, I would recommend this TED talk by the minimalists – Ryan and Joshua. These guys gave up their six figure salaries to live minimal lives. Soon, they found more time to follow their passions […]

What is one thing you always thought you wanted, but then, once you got it, you no longer wanted it?

What is one thing you always thought you wanted, but then, once you got it, you no longer wanted it?

The first thought that came to my mind when I saw the question was, “That bad haircut” and “Every mustache I tried to keep”… I recently (read as yesterday) chanced on the concept of Minimalism. Minimalism is what my math teacher Mr TMS used to say “Less is more”. It is about retaining the things and practices that add value to your life and removing […]

Is Life Easy?

Is Life Easy?

We live stressful lives. We are slaves of smart phones and laptops. We are expected to work 8 hours everyday. We have a house loan by the time we turn 25. This is not because our parents did not work hard. Real estate is expensive. We take up education loans at 20. Again, it is not our parents fault. Education is expensive. We have a […]

A decade since engineering

I recollect a number of seminars and lectures that happened in college. However  I honestly do not remember any one talk that resonated with me. May be it was because at that age, I had trained myself not to hear anything spoken by anyone that had the microphone. But ten years on since my engineering, I came across this video on my LinkedIn feed. It […]
