Luxury is never just in the product, it is in the experience.
Since forever, luxury shopping had been envisioned only as a tangible experience amidst a hoard of Greek-god attractive store consultants, halo-ed product displays and dreamlike retail spaces but with the rise of millennial shoppers and their smarter, more dynamic lifestyle choices — the digital marketplace has witnessed an axis tilt in the online sale of luxury goods.
Today’s tech-savvy milennial shoppers with very little time to spare are more than comfortable with indulging in the purchase of high priced goods that tap into the realms of quality and…
“Sometimes, all you need is one person, to restore your faith in all of humanity.”
Life-changing love is not something you experience very often. Most of us go through most our lives wondering why it all just doesn’t work for us. Until one day, it does.
One day, this beautiful soul walks into your life and turns it upside down. They are nothing like anyone you’ve met before. They are what the books and movies said soulmates are like. They light your face up with smiles and make your eyes sparkle with joy. They stand by you through the good…
They say some loves
Just aren’t meant to last
So I wonder,
About this alchemy
Of love and loss
I wonder if it’s nothing
But a grand plan of the universe
Setting the storm in motion
One little piece at a time
While we wear our hearts
On our sleeves
Throwing love like confetti
I wonder how it all unfolds
How do you know
That you loved them?
And that you don’t love them, anymore?
That you just can’t
Even if you try
When do you know? Is it something they do? Or is it someone new you…
Feels like an eternity has passed
Since I heard your voice
By now, I should have forgotten
how it even sounds,
But I haven’t
The sing song ‘I love you’ of yours
Still echoes in my head
Even though I deleted
All the voice notes I had of it
I don’t look at your pictures anymore
Yet, I remember your face with such clarity
That I can describe
Every contour and every edge
I remember how the soft curls of your hair
Felt between my fingers
The curls I didn’t really like
Yet loved, so much
I still picture you…
I happen to be the queen of petty, passive-aggressive grudges that I have held on to, since forever; so it is somewhat ironic, that I of all people am here, talking about forgiveness.
For the longest time, I had a deep, dark secret — a hate list, comprising of the names of all those people who should not be allowed into my funeral (Can you even begin to imagine the amount of hate and rage that brought me here?)
These were people I said I’d “never” forgive because they hurt me in ways I didn’t deserve. I won’t take a…
One of the most profound realisations of growing up is that our lives very rarely unfold the way we’d have thought they would and adversity is the only constant. Especially, us millennials — we’re a bunch of broken and wounded people who patch up bullet holes with band-aids and keep going on and about with our regular lives as if nothing’s happened.
We bottle up our emotions, drown ourselves in distractions and convince ourselves that we’re ‘fine’. But being convinced that we’ve healed and healing are two very different things, wouldn’t you agree?
In case you don’t, I would like…
“Next year, I promise to visit you on your birthday, wherever in the world you may be,” I tell my best friend as we end our video call on a bittersweet note.
Haven’t we all been saying exactly this since coronavirus hit us six months ago? When this is all over…(blah, blah, fill up your own bucket list)
But I’ve said exactly this even in a sans-virus world. For instance, that friend I promised I’d visit for her birthday (anywhere in the world), I have missed the last three of her birthdays. In a row. Can I think of any…
I stared out of the window as my flight picked up speed for take-off and I felt the lingering sensation of that light brush of his lips against mine, from when I bid him a teary goodbye at the airport gate. “Until next time, love,” he said. That soft but brief, heartfelt kiss was probably the most divine feeling I’d experienced in a very long time. It took all of me to suppress the ‘I love you’ that was fighting to slip out of my tongue. It had just been a few months since we’d been seeing each other. I…
I wonder how many people are pursuing a career of their choice. If that choice has been a constant or constantly subject to change. I wonder because my career has been like a wicked game of snakes and ladders. But the games you play are the ones you eventually stand to win. Right?
On one hand, I have known people who have been chanting what they want to be since the time they could speak and then there are the mere mortals. Who do a lot of things decently and constantly ponder over the possibility of doing something else every…
There is nothing worse than knowing that someone is in love with you while also being ashamed that they are in love with you…
You did right by her, always. I’d call you a good man for that. A great man, if I’m being honest. But my life was destroyed by our relationship. I became a walking carcass of trauma and for that, I will never forgive you. Unfortunately, I will never forgive me either. And I can’t say what hurts more.
