Photo :: Thirty-seven Seconds to Gratitude



It rained last night.
 
Today I had to go out for some work and I took an Uber. It so happened that I was passing the Hussainsagar Lake. I requested my Uber driver to stop near the water body for at least two minutes so I can look at it. It seemed a strange request to him and he was hesitant. I told him that it's been SO long we've been indoors thanks to the lockdown and it seems like another one is on the way (no update so far, but that's what we hear). Anyway...  After a little bargain, I stayed there for 37 seconds. And although it wasn't enough to quench my thirst, I felt immense gratitude to have the opportunity to look at the waves and smell the water. Small victories count a lot.
 
Alhamdulillah

Poem :: Solitary summer night


Solitary summer night-
Whir of the fan,
There's music in my ears,
Like quiet hums of my heart,
And a band caressing
Strings of a uke.
Wiping away the sweat
Of the day, forgetting the sun.
Waves of fragrance,
Waft through an open window.
Like a memory that unfolds,
On a solitary summer night.

-Asra

Feature :: How to have fun when you're alone?


So, what can you do when you’re alone? Can you have fun? Scores of articles on the internet show the usual ways to have fun by yourself – watch a movie, get crafty in the kitchen, pick up a new hobby, blah blah blah. There’s no use mentioning them here, BECAUSE THEY SUCK!

What can you do when you feel all alone and there's no one with whom you can share an experience? You're being bombarded with how Millennials are out there earning experiences rather than money and yet, you are left alone even as the whole world seems to be going around travelling, exploring restaurants, etc. with a whole bunch of people who seem to have a shared secret of knowing how to be connected to each other. Meanwhile, you sit in front of your computer or worse, you're slumped in a chair with your phone in hand scrolling through posts and posts of people "living" their life. All the while feeling sorry for yourself for not having the means and resources to go around having these experiences. Well, for one, it's not lack of monetary resources. Thankfully, you seem to be in possession of that, given your job.


Alone is good.
Lonely? Not so much.
