The truth about Intolerance

In light of recent events, there’s a lot of discussion going on about the rise of intolerance in the country. Reports of communal violence have increased (only reports, mind you), celebrities are being ostracised for their statements, students are being branded as anti-nationals just for their opinions. But all have a common denominator, one that people fail to focus on. Continue reading The truth about Intolerance

Guwahati, in reminisence

No matter how many days go by, no matter what goes on in my life, the city remains the same.
Ever reminiscent of my first few days in college, #Guwahati never ceased to amaze.
No matter what, the city is still the same.

And I think this is beautiful.

Travel log

Today I came across an interesting question on Quora,

Would you post a map of the administrative divisions of your country you’ve (a) lived in (b) visited (c) passed through?

This one was again inspired by an older Reddit thread.

So here’s my map:


Modified from the Indian Districts Map | Public Domain, Changes include corrections in the Assam region as of 21/01/2017 and colouring of specific districts based on my travel history.
  • Legend:
    • Red: Lived
    • Green: Visited
    • Blue: Passed through (on land only)

This was a very interesting exercise for me, and I think everyone should give this a try. I was really surprised to see how little of India I had covered till now actually.

NOTE: The original map on Wikimedia commons is horribly outdated and (I’m speaking only about the state of Assam) does not contain any of the new districts or divisions. On that note, the Assam part of this map has been modified to add some of the newer districts.


Seeping through the threads
Crawling o’er the skin,
The cold sets in.
Soaking in the rain.

A contrast of senses,
The exterior in confusion.
Almost a transformation,
The world above and below.

Turbulence ensuing, the world outside,
An o’erpowering calmness inside.
Immersed in melody, (a) sea of emotions,
As I was drenched in the rain.
