#P9 Corona Diary: Part 1.


As always, it has been a while since my last post. I do realize that if this keeps happening, I might as well make ‘Its been a while since my last post” my opening line. So, Story so far… It’s 2020. The glorious new year. And like everyone else, I started my new year with a lot of hope and resolutions. The year started off great. I was back in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia...

#P8 Lessons learnt in 2019


2019 was a fun year. It was eventful for everyone in their own ways. Many people found their passions, many met their long-lost friends and family. Many found love, while many lost theirs. Many found fortune, while many lost theirs. Now some people will say its what happens every year and they are not wrong either. For me, 2019 was a year filled with realizations and firsts.

The silver screen has always intrigued me. I am also a bookworm. I like books just as...

#P5 What are the topics that authors need to explore more in their books?


Henry Ward Beecher said, “Books are the windows through which the soul looks out”. I have always found that statement quite thought-provoking and curious. It always made me wonder as to what the soul does when we aren’t reading books. What is a soul anyway? This is not the first time anyone has heard this question. The funniest and the most common answer for this question, however, was given by...

#P4 How books have taken a back seat in today’s digital world?


I’ll be honest, this is a topic that I have always wanted to explore based on personal experiences and thoughts. I have been an avid reader and a bookworm for a long time. Since my first picture book in kindergarten probably and I have always loved them. That interest and love for the written word only grew as time passed. They kept me company when the real world was too much to handle and...
