Scrabbles with Rumi

“What you seek is seeking you.” – Rumi

An eagle faces the same dilemma as other birds during the rains. To fly or not to fly. It picks the former and flies above the clouds. Every day, every individual encounters their own version of rains and the following dilemma: to fly or not to fly. Their choice chooses them. Continue reading “Scrabbles with Rumi”

To count or not to count

How many stars are there in the sky? Infinite, or so we have been told. How many drops of water exist in the ocean? Infinite, or so we have been told. We live in a world where we count apples, colours and people and not flavour, fragrance and sky. It sounds so straightforward, right. Countable and uncountable nouns. The grammar of countable and uncountable nouns. The clarity of it all. But is it really that clear? Continue reading “To count or not to count”

The dangerous lot of Abigail Haas

“Any one of us could be made to look a monster, with selective readings of our history.” – Dangerous Girls

We all have a list of those books that we intend to read but subconsciously keep delaying for some reason. For me, it was the work of Abigail Haas. Continue reading “The dangerous lot of Abigail Haas”

Project Prochnost: Week 14

My stupid fever relapsed earlier this week, so this week was largely devoted to catching up with my Duolingo. I did some speaking exercises on phrases, but the key to this is the word ‘some’.

The sciency science of Indian food

The lure of Indian food and its lip-smacking diversity is well-known. If you ask any Indian living abroad, it’s perfectly possible that he/she confesses missing the food more than their own family! Can you guess the reason, after all? Continue reading “The sciency science of Indian food”

Dublin Murder Squad: mixing bold to the old

The term detective fiction is made of two words: detective + fiction. However, more often than not, the focus of such books lies on the first part, i.e. the mighty detective. Well, not always. In Tana French’s Dublin Murder Squad series, the focus tilts towards the fiction part and that isn’t even the best part!
