Contradictions are the spice of life

Hi Friend,How is the onset of winter looking? Are you excited?! Good.I've been married for ten days now. I'm happy to confirm it still seems like a good idea. I went to the courthouse two days ago to collect my marriage certificate and the lady at the desk as…

I have nothing to share this week


💔Appu, fare thee well

🤔 Getting inspired endlessly

And other such mental conditions.


⭕️ Self-critical loop

Hello friend,Hope you're having a great start to the week. The past three days have been a bit of a struggle for me. I started with the noble intention of covering a song. I spent an entire day learning parts of it, figuring out the arrangement and trying to …

Dear Homo Sapien,Enough is enough. Starting next Sunday, I will send my newsletter at 9.30am (IST) or 12:00 am (EST). My travelling has come to a halt. I have no excuse to not stick to a schedule. So, here I am today, earlier than usual in your inbox, inching…


🤪 Immigration, Vaccine and DDLJ

Dear reader,Firstly and foremostly, hi. If you missed my last issue that I sent out three days ago, please read it here; I've gone on and on and on... nothing new there.Secondly, I changed my WhatsApp number back to what it originally was—my oldest phone numb…
