Day 1 – A Trip to The Beach

Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice

100 Happy Days – Day 1

End of exams and an evening at the beach.

My exams got over yesterday. Well, CA Finals are feared for a reason. Hence, to vent out all the pent up feelings, we went on a trip to the beach near Vypin, Kochi.


The moment when the fire, the water, the earth, the space and the air merged with the soul.

Hope you like the snap. Though it looks simple, I like how all the five elements have been depicted here alongwith the blissful self. 🙂


I am undertaking the #100HappyDays challenge. This is the Day 1 of the challenge.

The Vicious Garland

With time, I see the chains. With every passing day, they become more visible, heavier and stronger. I see more chains crawling up my legs, creeping through my fingers and holding me in place.

‘And’ Is Given For A Reason; Use It.

Ask me what my ambition is and I can't pick just one. THIS was my first post on this blog. I just read it today and realized that 4 years back, I believed that none of my ambitions would come true. The tone of my post clearly says that. But today, my mindset is entirely different. … Continue reading ‘And’ Is Given For A Reason; Use It.

Little Things and Unexpected Opportunities

"Look at the two of you! Yikes!!! Can you at least be a bit presentable?", my aunt chided my brother, Vinay and my cousin, Rohit. "This is the new fashion, Aunty!", Vinay said. I was laughing away amused listening to the conversations. It was always like this. Whenever any of us got scolded, others sat watching … Continue reading Little Things and Unexpected Opportunities

The only festivals you celebrate are, the end of individual tax season, company tax … Continue reading From the diary of a dishevelled CA student.

Life is crazy

What would happen if you had a series of amazing events in a row? It would sound like fiction. The first fiction that happened yesterday was me winning a couple of 'sports' competitions.

Even CA could be funny at times-I

CA or Chartered Accountancy often misunderstood as Computer Application was alien to me even when I had completed my high school. At some point of time in college I happened to hear about it and the idea of anybody, I repeat, ANYBODY going for the course, was revolting! I was just giving it a try … Continue reading Even CA could be funny at times-I
