A frozen introspection…

Recently, I watched the ‘Battle of Winterfell’ and posted a meme (Read: Spoiler) about how the cinematography was insanely dark. Since I am vehemently against spoilers and lead the ‘Anti - Spoiler Club’ among my pals, one of my dearest buddies responded, Et tu, Brute? That struck a chord and instantly, I was transported to … Continue reading A frozen introspection…

A Tale of Two Minds…

Almost a year ago, as the birds were chirping their hearts out, I sprung up from the cozy cushion castle that I had built for myself and had the strangest reverie in my head.  A fierce, fervent, fanatical musing. Or perhaps, a hallucination that echoed like an ardently guarded secret. Little did I know that … Continue reading A Tale of Two Minds…

Miracle by the Bay…

Quaint Beaches. There is a certain ‘Je ne sais quoi’ about them that is alluring. And no. It is not the hackneyed ‘salt in the air/wind in my hair’ feeling, that makes me draw beach castles in the air, whenever I think about peace and quiet. Definitely not. Having bloomed and burgeoned in a city where sultry … Continue reading Miracle by the Bay…

A Dalmatian Bethlehem

Life is but, a ritzy, rat-race; A chaotic, chimeric, wild-goose chase. To carve out a space, Bring a change of pace; Or, a fleeting, fated, day of grace. So, fade away without a trace; Far away, to an obscure place, To pull up the stakes, And, stir a few quakes. For, life is but, a … Continue reading A Dalmatian Bethlehem

I have an unparalleled love for high tides and tan lines, ocean air and salty hair. I trust good friends, gritty … Continue reading In Bruges

A Medieval Marvel

Once upon a January, seven years ago, there was a brightly lit classroom with an unbiased view of the Western Ghats. This classroom was unfortunately populated with bloodsucker monkeys hiding behind deceptive human masks. ‘Electronics’ was that subject which the majority of us hated. By hated, I mean dreaded. Positively with a vengeance. When you … Continue reading A Medieval Marvel

A Croatian Epiphany

Places and people, an unrivaled pair; Each with a distinct story to share, A history to bare, knowledge so rare; Unveiling mysteries in the air… Time and tide aplenty to spare, Wild, mad as a march hare; If only I were a millionaire… Vanish I will, elsewhere; somewhere… Short poems are my ‘jam’. I love … Continue reading A Croatian Epiphany

Bolognese for a Day…

Tourist Traveler These cute info-graphics created by BoredPanda should give you a better picture on all things ‘travel’ navigating in the seemingly unassuming mind of a traveler.

A huge ‘Hello’ !

Hey everyone, I am Akshaya, an aerospace engineer with a passion for all things non-aerospace i.e, cheesecakes, avocados and magic. When I am not staring at large, boring screens, I like to travel, think, take photos and write. I have always wanted my little corner in the internet where I can be my crazy self … Continue reading A huge ‘Hello’ !
