When I was coming up with this prompt I knew deep within my heart that I will have to share my view with you all.

In the Morning
My world is full
of distractions
Hearing them out
Loud and clear
The voice of
Street Hawkers
Stepping to the
Stairs of my parents

I realized today that I could never live without you, stubborn little hellion that you are. In this life and the next, you’re my only hope of happiness. Tell me, Lillian, dearest love…how can you have reached so far inside my heart?”
Lisa Kleypas, It Happened One Autumn

I heard you last night. Okay. Let’s give this shit one more chance. You are terribly sick because you are in love with your wife’s sister. What an asshole you are but I dared not to tell you the truth to your face. I am craving for my next 500 dollars that I am going to make in one hour from you.

First of all…

Mumbai 2015

When I was growing up I never knew that one day I would become a solo traveler. I didn’t decide on it but I experienced it when I turned 29 in 2015.

I took my first solo trip to Mumbai City (Known as the Financial Capital of India) and that experience stayed with me.

Although I met my friends there and stayed with them I discovered the city with new…
