Stress can develop anytime and … Continue reading Stress Management | Rohit

Smile & Observe | Atray

I remember, a couple of years ago, I was sitting among a few friends, we were discussing a topic that was so-not-important as I don’t even remember what it was!

I observed that smiling seemed so contagious as we all couldn’t … Continue reading Smile & Observe | Atray

Losing a Part of You | Sneha

The one thing that had been consistent all my life ever since I was eight has been my diary. It was my brother who once said to me while giving me one of his favourite pens (which before that day I wasn’t even allowed to touch), “Everyone will leave one day, but this pen will always be your friend.” I know, heavy stuff for an … Continue reading Losing a Part of You | Sneha

Tamasha: Be who you are | Jatin

An underrated masterpiece. This is one of those movies that stay with you long after the end credits roll.

5 Years Down the Line | Part 2 | Atray

I’d be lying if I said that this thought didn’t cause me to be awake all night on numerous occasions. It was more so a few years back when I was probably still in school and college.

Being in a real work environment made me understand that perhaps no job is perfect and there will be … Continue reading 5 Years Down the Line | Part 2 | Atray

5 Years Down the Line | Part 1 | Jatin

It’s an interesting, speculative topic to talk about. Well, I am 21 as of now. 5 years down the line means 26, which means I would have to do some hard adulting, which is a daunting thought on its own.
